The most daring thing I’ve ever done
"I’ve never had a real job, and I’ve only done music for a living. And, although I’m sort of broke, I don’t think I am. I just say to myself, 'You know what, one day, people are going to care about this stuff, and I’m going to keep doing it and be unapologetic about it.' I want to expose people to new music, and I think that’s daring. Maybe I don’t make a lot of money, but maybe I will one day. I don’t even want to entertain the idea of not doing what I love all the time."
What makes my music unique
"I like to play really kitschy, weird records that are undiscovered or forgotten about. I like to do what’s unfamiliar rather than what’s already been done. I want to be a tastemaker. I want to show people things, and that might be at the expense of my bank account, but that’s okay. I like to bridge the gap between genres and make people hear music in a way that’s different from how they’re used to hearing it. My sets sound like a perfect mix CD your best friend gave you!"
What I do to feel sexy onstage
"My whole persona is about being over the top. I try to be as creative as I
can with what I have, and be unapologetic about it. Everything I wear is
some sort of weird, crazy, glam-rock rejected item of clothing that most
people probably wouldn’t wear. But, I'm drawn to them because they're the
things — cultural reference points, music, pop culture, ephemera — that
inspire. Then, I reappropriate them to make 'em my own. It’s never about
what other people think."
