OK, I'll admit it: I have a serious girl crush on Miss Juliette Lewis. Sure, I'd always admired her acting chops and idiosyncratic sense of style (remember those cornrows at the Oscars?). But it wasn't until she came out as a singer with the release of Like a Bolt of Lightning in 2004 that I fell head-over-heels in lurv with the brazen beauty, who sings like her life depends on it and stalks the stage like a banshee in heat (she really does Move Like Jagger, if Jagger was a bikini- and headdress-wearing, Oscar nominated, Twitter loving Scientologist). The woman is id and ego in one scrawny, sexy, don't-give-a-damn package that inspires the rest of us (e.g., me) to just go for it, already—and she rocks a mean latex legging. I mean, really, what's not to love?
