    Karen O, the fashionably flamboyant singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, has revealed that the band helped her get over the death of her BFF.

    Miss O, born Karen Orzolek, was just starting out with the group when her best friend died unexpectedly.

    She said, "This band has gotten us all through a lot. Me specifically, the death of one of my best friends around the time we started. I was 22. I was a baby. I was totally traumatized and devastated and lost, and if I didn't have the Yeah Yeah Yeahs taking me around the world… I'm not sure what would have happened."

    Music is a universal healer.

    Are you going to check out Yeah Yeah Yeahs' new album Mosquito, out April 16?
