Why We Love Her: With her powerful pipes, sparkling personality and movie star good looks, West was undoubtedly born to be an entertainer. She says she looks to her own journal for songwriting inspiration, penning tunes that will make you laugh, cry and tap your toes. And if her fun-loving video for 'Rocks in Your Shoes' doesn't thrill you, check her out live in concert. West's wildly energetic stage show impresses even the harshest of critics.
