Lesbian icon La Roux returns to Vancouver in April in sold out show

While La Roux (Elly Jackson) refuses to classify herself as gay, straight or bisexual, she has become somewhat of a reluctant lesbian icon and is sure to thrill her many women fans when she returns to Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom for her sold-out show on April 18th.

La RouxWhile 20 year old Jackson doesn’t seem to have a problem with her large lesbian following, in fact she told Heat magazine in 2009 that she knew it would happen, she has made it clear that she finds it a bit bizarre that she gets women’s underwear thrown at her on stage. But with her short ginger bob, freckles and a nose that has been described as “making your heart turn to a puddle” it isn’t surprising that she has such an effect on some women (and men).

But for her, it really is all about the music.  And with a collision of electronic danceability and painstaking songwriting, La Roux unquestionably became one of 2009’s sure-fire new Brit stars and is destined to continue her success into 2010.

While perhaps evoking the heart-palpitations of jelly-bean-era Madonna, La Roux (red haired one), stands loud and proud in a crop of cool new pop. Featuring trademark 80’s-influenced pop and a signature coif, La Roux has the ability to make crowds go ballistic and has even been referred to as a British version of Lady Gaga.
