If people compared Orianthi’s style to Kelly Clarkson after “According To You” – they’re definitely saying something after hearing the singer/guitarist’s next single, “Shut Up and Kiss Me.”
“Yeah, that’s an awesome thing, she’s so talented,” Ori said of the comparison. “This song is a fun song; it’s got a guitar solo in it once again.”

The showcasing of her guitar skills is far from a coincidence – the Australian-born artist hopes to inspire other kids, especially women, to pick up their own axe and play.
“Lyrically, it’s empowered, just like ‘According To You’, but it’s kind of sassy,” explained Orianthi.
But she quickly clarified that the song’s edge isn’t exactly a reflection of her.
“Yeah pretty much (me) with the volume turned up,” Orianthi said when describing the song. “That’s what you do for the song, you know, have fun with it.”
