“I fear sometimes that people sort of see me a certain way from some of these roles, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to be like, “I’m such a dork!” Really, really. I’m such a dork. I just pretend to be cool.”
I am a blue-haired, 21-year-old girl from New Jersey. I pride myself in being authentic. I pride myself on having a shock value to what I do that crosses a gender barrier that owns an androgyny, that owns a certain sexuality that male artists can get away with that female artists haven’t been able to so far. That’s the frontier I’m trying to pioneer through.
