Some haters seem to disagree with the majority, claiming her attractive assets seem to be the root to her success.
“Grumpy Cat” asked this question on Answers.yahoo.com about a week ago:
Am I the only one that hates Jess Greenberg?
Honestly, she’s just using her boobs to get more views and fame. I don’t think there’s even a video where she’s not showing cleavage. She has a good voice overall. But if it wasn’t for that massive cleavage, she wouldn’t be famous at all. Overall, I think she’s just an attention whore.
Check out her YouTube videos and judge for yourself.
Do you think she is a talented musician?
Jess Greenberg covers:
Very average singer player but she is beautiful if she wasn’t good looking nobody would care about her
People who say that she is “average” are either sound death or plain jealous. Try doing Hendrix on acoustic guitar at home without rhythm section, and then we’ll talk..
I fully agree…. hendrix on an acoustic guitar and still sounding that good… she has got talent. No need for the plunging necklines.
Nonsense. She’s only 18 years old…she plays well and will get better…she sings well, very good pitch and rhythm…excellent timing. Triple threat. Looks, voice and she can rock a guitar. The body is a bonus. She has raw talent and raw sex appeal…nothing about her is average.
She’s definitely not average, but we have to agree that if it wasn’t for her looks her popularity may not have been what it is. There are tons of talented musicians out there with ten times the talent and half the looks.. and the world has never heard of them.
Her Looks aside, this girl has excellent taste in music and she can play some of the cult classic songs without blinking. Saying she has “fame” for being beautiful is stating the obvious. I can think of 10 artists that are famous today with half her talents based on looks alone. I would love to see some of the people making comments about her “average” skills to pull off half of what she is doing on her average acoustic guitar whilst singing. She is not in a studio for starters and considering the poor audio quality she still impresses.
All of the comments that say she’s only popular because of her looks are from people that don’t know how to evaluate musical skills. She is a talented and good looking, why shouldn’t she flaunt it. This is good self marketing. In today’s world you need to use everything you got to help you get ahead. She would be an idiot for not showing off her good looks. Dudes, give her a break, she is playing rock n roll, not interviewing for a corporate desk job. Maybe, you should’ve told Robert Plant to wear a shirt on stage back in the 70’s, since according to you, it is inappropriate to for a rock musician to perform without a shirt on.
Your comments are on point! YouTube has provided a platform for anyone with talent to flaunt it. Back in the day rock bands us to do the outrageous outfits, permed hair, makeup and crazy on stage antics. Biting of the head of a bat is not required to get major attention anymore. If you are lucky enough to be blessed with good looks and it so happens that you can sing and bend strings to awesome rock songs…go ahead and flaunt it.
She is way over average when it comes to the guitar, anyone who says different does not play the guitar themself, it’s that simple.
She’s also showing her cleavage, excellent, who cares? Why shouldn’t she? None of you would call her a “whore” to her face, because she isn’t one.
There is nothing wrong with showing some skin, like Joseph wrote, go back and complain about all the rockers in the 70s showing off their CHESTs.
She is really really talented, I can’t play all of the things she can.
Really talented really good looking = Fucking awesome.
She might be above average at guitar if you include all the people who have never touched a guitar, but if you only look at the sample of people who have played for 8 years she is average. I’m not hating, good for her and best of luck to her, but just because you suck at guitar doesn’t mean she’s a phenom.
yes she is very talented and this is coming from a musicians point of view…if you close your eyes and look away you still hear a gifted voice and a guitar that keeps good time to meter…not perfect but good. Jess just happens to be Beautiful and talented she has the full package to take her singing career a long way
lawl “full package”
@Grumpy Cat; you’re saying that like it’s a bad thing. You’re right, of course, but as reasonably talented singer and guitarist myself, I can tell you that we’re a dime a dozen. Like it or not, you have to use whatever you’ve honestly got to get noticed.
She is the epitome of human evolution to my eyes, she has a lovely voice and she can play guitar. I don’t see anything wrong with her existing right now as a 19-year old.
i’m a guy. i like titties. sure, she’s beautiful.
but come on, she has a great voice and she plays that guitar very well. nice, plain, stripped down sound that’s still very full.
if i want to look at pretty girls with nice titties i can watch porn.
So she is just using her boobs to get fame. Your point is? If she sang perfectly then she would just be using her voice to get fame now wouldn’t she. Don’t be jealous because we would rather watch her than you.
You know what, you geeks would just love if she would just put down the guitar, pull down her pants and whip out a giant c@ck. She’d be your new fav. As it is though pretty, talented girl = Pi ssed off hipster geeks. People like you su ck so bad there isn’t a word to describe it. If you don’t have talent just ridicule those that do right, geeks want to be the bu lly now.
Huh, not sure what the rant is about? Is this directed at grumpy cat for the silly remark or is this a misguided attack at geeks for some reason?
She is talented, sure, but I also think she has some serious insecurities about her talent; otherwise why would she feel the need to show so much skin just to get views on YouTube? There are a lot of talented female musicians out there who got further in their careers without selling their bodies like that.
Sex sells mate, At the end of the day though she is highly talented. It’s people like you who are insecure, having to attack someone for who they are. Get over yourself
Again…..not sure what the rant is about? Is this directed at grumpy cat for the silly remark or is this a misguided attack for some reason?
shes very pretty and talented
Is that a trick question??????? She’s got it…….!!
I love Jess!! She’s an amazing talent and her physical beauty is only a pure extension and expression of that talent. Thank you for posting so many great photos of Jess Greenberg and cataloging her videos all on one convenient link!
It is really difficult to post only one video because she covers so many awesome songs. We actually need to check in on Jess’ YouTube page for some new covers. Thanks for the feedback!
if I was to be just walking by minding my own business and she was playing the guitar and singing on the street, let say New York, where it’s a lot more liberal in a sense, I wouldn’t take great notice, I’ve seen a girl play topless in Manhattan, so she wouldn’t be a big deal, but her musicianship would amaze me, only because It’s reallly rare you see a sexy girl playing rock on a guitar, that can sing and play that well. Usually girls that look like that are either models or actresses. So she’s really a rariety.
I couldn’t have said it any better. Topless woman singing in Manhattan huh? It must be quite an experience to live in New York, never mind passing topless singing girls on your way to work?
She’s pretty generic. And her “fame” definitely stems from white knights who can’t get laid…
