YOU USED TO WORK AS A DOMINATRIX. HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN THAT WORLD?
I had some friends who introduced me to the Fetish world and I got slowly more and more involved in it. It started with foot fetish parties, then I worked as a Dominatrix for a while, and it was for me a fun and interesting way to make money while I was beginning my music career. I’m still very active in the Fetish world as it’s a part of myself, and it influences my music a lot.
THE MUSIC VIDEO OF YOUR SONG “BREAK YOUR HEART” IS A SOCIAL MEDIA SUCCESS. WHAT SONGS ARE YOU GONNA RELEASE NEXT?
I’m releasing a electro-pop song called “Princess Boy”, about a young man trying to find himself through cross-dressing and about becoming the person that you truly are and the beauty of it. Then I’ll release a ballad called “Super Freak”, about loving ourselves even if we are different. The album will follow in 2014, with series of live performances and a tour.
WHAT MUSIC FIRST CAPTURED YOUR EAR AND GOT YOU INTERESTED IN MUSIC?
My mom was listening to classical music and playing the piano, this was the soundtrack of my childhood and it gave me the foundation of my musical life. Hearing my mom playing the piano had something very appeasing and Magic. My dad was listening to classic rock bands like The Beatles, Queen and Pink Floyd, and made me enjoy that kind of music. It led me to discover more contemporary rock and perform in rock bands as a singer and guitarist when I was a teenager. And this rock background contributes to give something edgy to my actual sound and performances.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I'm training and performing as an Opera singer, which is a huge influence for my creativity and helps keeping my voice healthy. I’m just love Opera. I’m an Opera freak! I also studied music composition and counterpoint, which gives me a great understanding of music. Concerning musical instruments, I learned classical piano, classical guitar, cello and church organ. I also trained in ballet and modern dance. In high school, I was in an acting major and I also went in a school of visual arts for years when I was a teen, studying painting.
DO YOU PREFER PLAYING LIVE OR RECORDING?
I'm definitely a live performer and this is how Arts make sense to me and how I come alive. But it’s also fun to just be sitting in the studio and take the time to go into the details of the song and find the perfect sound, the perfect words and record the perfect vocals. But I definitely record songs with in mind the music videos that I’m gonna produce and the live performances. Recording the song is just the start.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO PERFORM?
I like intimate bars where I can just sit at the piano and perform acoustic version of my songs. I also love nightclubs, where the crowd is dancing to your songs like crazy and there’s a very high energy.
HAS ANYTHING CRAZY EVER HAPPENED AT A SHOW?
I kissed a girl. And I like it :-D … More seriously…. Well... There’s no need to add more crazy things to the show. It is crazy enough :-D
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
A model scout simply stopped me on the street and brought me to their agency to sign me. I also naturally attract photographers cause I’m just obsessed with having my picture taken :-)
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
About runways, I like when it becomes a live and artistic performance and when we can be creative while catwalking. And I like wearing freaking Fabulous and Hot clothes! I like to see modeling as a form of Art, a form of expression of myself and a way to move people and to share something intense with them, in the way I pose and with the outfit I wear. I love to see myself being in different outfits and in different setups where imagination has no limit. And I’m very exhibitionist by nature.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I like very tight outfits, very edgy and unique, something sexy and suggestive, leaving place to imagination. I love latex and I love transparent fabric. And Pasties! I freaking love to design them and express something through them. I’m also obsessed with Shoes! People always say that I have an impressive collection of shoes. And I love Jewelry. Especially the sexy ones. I love glitter and anything with Crosses. And Wigs of all shape and color. I also love having Fetish accessories like a Whip. I love Art-Clothing. I consider Fashion and Clothing as a form of Art. I'm planning on launching my own line of clothes and makeup.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Baggy clothes. Even though it could be interesting if designed and styled in an artistic way.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I love photography and I wanna use that medium more often. And I’d also like to perfect my Art of bondage. Fashion and clothing are of course big creative mediums for me and part of my music and live performances. As well a the set design on music videos and on stage.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Making love. Going to costume parties and to Fetish parties. Do random and silly things with friends. Take the car and go on a road trip. Traveling. Hiking in the mountains and rock climbing.
