I am quick failing this nomination. The article is not close to being GA status. There are segments of text with no sources, and those sources that are present are often substandard, such as non-WP:RS fan sites and the like. Cite formatting is similarly poor. The content of the article is basically one long annotated discography, with no real descriptions of her art or coverage of the critical reaction to her. The article has numerous violations of the WP:MOS, including dozens of cases where song titles and album titles have wrong formatting. At least one of the images looks like it might be a copyright violation. The nominator has all of five career edits; I think some socking may be going on here, but even if not, the nominator clearly is not familiar with the FA/GA guidelines.

Looking at the history a bit more, I see that the original GA nomination was on April 11‎ by Bonnietylersave, who has been around since 2011 and is in fact the top contributor to the article. Then on May 5, Align12Times, the editor with five career editors, changed the nomination from GA to FA, and then a day later, after GrahamColm rejected the FA nomination, changed it back to GA. So the original GA nomination may have been done in good faith. Nevertheless, the problems with the article are as I stated them, and the GA still fails. Wasted Time R (talk) 11:03, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
