Why I play up my look onstage
"I love big hair and big cat-eyes. I only wear neons and patterns. I just like bright, flashy things. I feel like you should be unafraid to just show up and say, ‘I’m here, bitches!’ Make your mark. It boosts my confidence onstage — it kind of makes me feel like 'Yeah, I’m really hot right now; this is going to be an awesome show' — but it’s filtered into my everyday life, too. All these colors and patterns are inside of my head, so it feels good to bring them out and show other people."
The most daring thing I’ve ever done
"This is going to sound really corny, but I just recently started singing. I’ve been a musician for a few years, guitar and stuff, but I’ve never taken vocal lessons. The first time I wanted to sing live, I was still in music school and I was so nervous. I really loved singing in the shower, but I could not do it in front of people — even people like my family and peers who would have only been supportive. But, when I was 15 or 16, I forced myself to audition for a recital and sang in front of about five people. I could have passed out I was so nervous."
