The Curious Case Of Fake Inna

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Inna's new UK single and lamented that Australia appeared to have given up on her. Well, Romania's favourite daughter can breathe a sigh of relief. Central Station Records have just confirmed that Inna will indeed be releasing "Amazing" in Australia. The thing is an impostor appears to have beaten her to it! In the pop scandal of 2010 (it's been a slow year), some slut has covered "Amazing" and released it on iTunes under the name Inna Marie. The nerve! To rub salt into the diva's wounds, fake Inna has somehow managed to scrape into the top 200! It seems Australia is so desperate for the Queen of Romanian clubs' new anthem that we're willing to settle for second best. In the name of research (and because I love the shameless cover art) I downloaded fake Inna's version and it's a line by line remake - only with vocals that make the real deal sound like Barbra Streisand and a backing track that sounds like it was put together on my old commodore 64. Fake Inna needs to turn her talents to covering lesser divas like Delta and Cheryl Cole. I could use new and improved versions of their records but leave my Romanian princess alone! The original version of "Amazing" is released next week as part of Central Station's Wild Summer 2011 compilation. In the meantime, have another look at the stunning video. So much talent!

I can't wait for Fake Inna's unique interpretation of Inna's "10 Minutes". That pants-free mess is my jam! "You see meh yo, diz is sterry-yo..."
