Would anybody--anybody--have predicted fun.'s lead single "We Are Young" making the TV-performance rounds a year or so ago? (Assume, for this, that it existed a year or so ago.) Probably not, and yet here we are, watching "We Are Young" talked up by Letterman and done live. There's no Janelle Monae here but then again, there wasn't much of her on the track proper. (Backing vocals should not be featured credits. Again.) It translates, though, theatrical on the verses and booming on the chorus as it should be. We're perfectly fine watching a lot more performances of it. Let's see it happen.


Brown hair and eyes, a scar, freckles.. and another hand; CLUES IN SEVERED HEAD MYSTERY.(News)

The Mirror (London, England) April 3, 2008 Byline: By MAGGIE BARRY A SMALL scar on her forehead could help identify the mystery woman whose severed head and hand were found on a beach, detectives said yesterday.

The young woman - who was in her mid 20s to 30s - had long brown hair and brown eyes with a spattering of freckles across her nose.

She was pale-skinned and her ears were not pierced. The one-and-a-half inch circular scar was just below her hairline.

Last night police revealed that a second hand had been found in a black bin liner.

It was 100 yards from where two sisters, four and six, stumbled across the head at high tide on a beach in Arbroath, Angus, on Tuesday. website highlights for brown hair

Ateamof30copsandforensic scientists are working round the clock trying to establish the woman's identity and fate.

DCI Graham McMillan, who is leading the investigation, described the woman as attractive and well-groomed, and said her hands were manicured. here highlights for brown hair

He said: "There is nothing on our databases that matches her description or any national databases and we will be searching further.

"We will be going on to Interpol and further a field. It may be that she has not yet been posted missing." He said the remains were in good condition and were probably not in the water for very long.

Local fishermen, familiar with the tides, believe the remains had been dumped locally and washed quickly ashore.

James Yule Jr, of the Arbroath Lifeboat crew, said: "It was unlikely that they had been thrown into the water further north and washed up by tides at Arbroath." Yesterday, just before the Seagate beach reopened at 3pm, police made one last sweep for any other body parts. A line of officers painstakingly raked the pebbles along the high water mark.

Last night the mum of the two girls who made the gruesome find said: "They are terrified. They think the same person who killed her will come after them." maggie.barry @mirror.co.uk CAPTION(S):
