Go back home - Posted Mar 11, 2013
From drowning her lovers in a bathtub to getting her own head sliced off; We’ve seen the black leather addict from every angle and could think we know her very well. ButÂ there’sÂ way more hiding behind those dark and captivatingÂ BambiÂ eyes. It’s been a very long way from back in the day till where she is now, so we’re glad that we can give you an uncensored new look on this powerful woman. Unveiling brand new information about her upcoming sophomore album release, “Trouble“.
How would you categorize the next album? (Dance, pop etc – Genre)
High impact bad girl anthems over hip hop drums and grunge guitars. My friend Alex call’s it “Girl Interrupted Pop” because in almost every song i’m confessing to something bad in my pastâ€¦ stalking my ex boyfriend, trying to set fire to the house with us both in it, getting taken away by the police, visiting my dad in jail, leaving home at 15, making out with boys i’d never met before, suicide attempts and running away to Paris. Fun timesâ€¦
Would you claim that “Trouble” is something that you’ve never done before?
It’s what i’ve been doing all along, but taken to a new extreme!
As talented producer and song-writer, what would be your favorite lyrical line of off the record?
Thank you! I’m wildly excited about my new single Problemâ€¦ my favorite lyrics is “We’re hellraising and we don’t need saving ’cause there’s no salvation for a bad girlâ€¦ We’re rock bottom but there ain’t no stopping cause they don’t know nothing about love”
And your favorite song overall? (From “Trouble”)
My favorite song is Saturday Night. It’s my life story in 4 minutes of music.
What is the meaning behind the album title and the message you want people to know/learn about?
Despite everything that’s happened to me I’m not trying to be fixed or saved or healed. It’s not therapyâ€¦ i’m not trying to get over the trauma, or even get better. I want to look in the mirror and see the scars as well as the beauty and think “fuck yeah, these are mine and no one else’s”. This album is a confessionâ€¦ it’s me being naked in front of everyone, so they can see something that they thought was pretty rosy is actually just as much a mess as themselves. There doesn’t have to be secrets or regretsâ€¦ the only mistake is trying not to make any.
If you never started making music, where would you be today?
Its the only thing I really know how to do. So I guess I’d be back in London, trying to make a demo!
What is your shoe size and how tall are you?
Eur 35â€¦ and i’m almost 5ft 2″
What do you look for in love?
Boys that like cigarettes, hate people and don’t get me at all, but still think I’m beautiful. That’s all girl really needs!
What’s your best advise for a broken hearted one?
Buy yourself a puppy and key his car. Or have sex with his dad or somethingâ€¦ I don’t know. I don’t have as much time for revenge these days so i’m a little rusty!
If you had the chance to dive into a certain book and live that story till the end of time, what book would it be?
“The picture of Dorian Gray” – Oscar Wilde
Your favorite song?
End of the World – by Skeeter Davis
A Moment that you will never forget?
Actually yes! A few years ago when I’d been homeless for a while, crashing on couches and floors in London, I eventually managed to get out to Hollywood and live in a run down motel for a year or soâ€¦ right until I got a record deal. One night I put on my high heels and did my hair really nice, and walked all the way down Sunset blvd trying to get a job as a waitress.
I went into every bar and cocktail lounge begging the doormen and managers to give me a chance. Finally, one guy said it was his birthday and if I sung to him he’d let me have an interview, so I sung right there in the street and sure enough he gave me the job. I can’t even tell you how happy I wasâ€¦ I only had about $13 left so it was one of the best days i’d had in a long time! Ironically I went back to that bar with Jeff Bhasker and all my friends for a big party to celebrate finishing my albumâ€¦ it was wild!
Let’s say you would have to dress yourself with only 1 designer for the rest of your life, who would it be?
I’m not sure I could do that. But I did wear only black for 2 yearsâ€¦ so who knows!
Who would you love to work with? (Musically, visually)
Angel Haze. She’s the best thing everâ€¦ I met her not so long ago but it feels like we’ve known each other forever. I’d love to work on a video with Gaspar Noe, that guy is crazy! We went around Paris all night going to fashion week parties and talked ’til 5am about everything and nothing. I can’t get into details of our conversations but he really blew my mind.
If you had a chance to have a dinner with whoever, who would it be & what would you eat?
Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra and Mae Westâ€¦ and we’d probably eat rose and strawberry macarons, and play the game “Marry Fuck Kill”â€¦
