Anyhoo- she's fantastic as a writer. Sure there's some crap. But for someone that young, it isn't just I love, you love me stuff.
She isn't going to win over the Dinosaur Jr or Pavement crowd...but if you lisiten to pop music for melody, you'd be hard pressed to find someone as good.
I love melody - and her's are about as generic as they come. I don't understand, she's literally not doing anything different than the rest of mainstream artists.
And that's the thing, there is some crap sure, it's mostly ALL crap though! It's stuff a 16 year old girl would write in her notebook during class.
