A complete grab bag. Kate Bush, Spice Girls, Aretha Franklin, The Doors, La Bouche, Donna Summer, Madonna, Le Tigre, The yea yea yeas, the list goes on and on.
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
The first tome I saw lady Gaga (the monster ball tour part 1) I waited in line 13 hours to be front and center. The first tome I was truly in awe of an artist. I danced, I cried, I made friends. It was incredible.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
This is tough. One of many would have to be, The B-52â€™s â€œWild Planet.â€ It is quite possible the album that sparked my love for a bands personality on top of their sound. The tracks are impeccably produced and the album is effortless cool, campy, and chic. Give me back my man is still one of my top 5 favorite songs of all time.
Do you have a life slogan?
Hey have you heard this song? IM. OBSESSED.
What artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?
David Bowie. I just want to spend a couple of hours with him. Simply listening. He shaped my life and helped me be proud of who I am. I miss him, and I never even met him.
