"Right away some people brand me as a weirdo, even when they don't know me," said pop-soul singer Jane Child, whose sprightly "Don't Wanna Fall in Love" was a recent Top 5 single. One reason Child may get more than the average number of double-takes is her extreme appearance. Like the ring embedded in her nostril and connected by a chain to one of her earrings. And like the long, blond braids snaking down nearly the full length of her slender frame.

* * 1/2 Jane Child, "Here Not There," Warner Bros. On her sophomore effort, the soul-influenced pop singer veers sharply from the radio-friendly accessibility of her first hit single, "Don't Want to Fall in Love." Not all of her experiments pay off, but she nicely evokes the breathy, baby-beatnik style of Rickie Lee Jones on the title cut. New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).

We are at Plush. Plush is the latest club from Mr. Dan and Paul V., the entrepreneurs who received national attention when they opened their still thriving club Dragstrip 66 earlier this year.

Though the term might not sound familiar, the sound of "new jack swing" has been inescapable during the last two or three years--whenever, in the words of L.L. Cool J, "those cars drive by with the boomin' systems." Merging hip-hop's rough beats with sweet synthesized melodies, and dropping hot raps alongside real singing, "new jack swing" is one of the few signs of life in the current Top 40 doldrums.

Larry Wright wanted a drum set, but his mother had money only for drugs. So one day he took the subway down to Times Square, flipped over a plastic bucket and began pounding on it with battered drumsticks. He hoped for coins, maybe $10 or $20 worth. But as strangers watched this sinewy youth play--sweat pouring from his shirtless torso, tiny bits of wood and plastic flying--they tipped him dollars instead of quarters.

None of the young Michigan couple's four children is older than 6, but the college their parents hope that they will attend someday already has collected their college tuition in full. For the $30,000 the couple borrowed against the equity in their home, Hope College in Holland, Mich., guarantees four years of college for each of the toddlers--assuming that they can meet the admission requirements when they're old enough to enroll.

"Strike the pose," Madonna commands in "Vogue," without specifying exactly which pose she has in mind. The one of your choice, most likely, given her tendency to preach the religion of freedom of expression, but all the better if your pose is glamorous, sexually alluring, aloof. But is Sinead O'Connor striking the pose? "Nothing Compares 2 U"--the video--has O'Connor staring intently at an unflinching camera, singing her sob story of romantic regret until she literally leaks a tear.
