20 Questions With Natalia Kills
My current 20 Questions interview is with the lovely and talented, Natalia Kills!
Check out our interview below and photo gallery of my favorite Natalia looks!
Do you prefer to be touring and out on the road, or home recording and living the day to day life?
I live more of a night-to-night life than a day- to -day one! I think I’d prefer to be able to sit at my kitchen table and cry and drink from 9 in the morning and write as many song ideas as possible than to be doing it in a tour bus and suffering from motion sickness.
You have such a glamorous, unique fashion sense. How would you describe your personal style?
I would describe my personal style as a mix of all my favorite television and film characters that I could relate to in my own personal life growing up. I used to watch Casino with my dad and I always wanted to look like Michelle Pfeiffer’s character Ginger. I love things like mink coats, big diamonds and Cartier bracelets. But I also loved Clueless and connected with the character Dion. You know the only brown girl in a very preppy private school who would dress quite thugged out and bitchy, lots of plaid.
What is one beauty product you can’t live without?
I cannot live without eyeliner. Its the main thing that gives you that “come to bed” eye that I wouldn’t be able to live without.
Your new album, ‘Trouble,’ just dropped a few weeks ago. Are you excited that the album is finally out?
Yes, I’m very excited. Lots more trouble to come, haha.
Do you have a favorite or standout track on the album?
My favorite song on the album right now is Marlboro Lights. It’s a suicide ballad I wrote after an argument with my boyfriend.
What do you like more: recording songs or filming music videos?
My favorite part is writing the songs about my memories and going into my past. It’s a visual experience too, because while the lyrics hit me I can see myself at that particular moment in time I’m describing and all the fucked up shit I was into.
What was the most fun “trouble” you ever got into?
There is a song on my album called “Stop Me.” It’s all about the time I ran away to Paris as a teenager with my best friend. Stealing makeup from the big beauty parlor because we didn’t have anything with us, and walking around town and taking baguettes outside of bakeries and eating them under the Eiffel Tower were some of my favorite memories.
Who are your favorite designers at the moment?
I’m really excited on the cover of ‘Trouble’ I’m wearing Prabal Gurung. He’s one of my favorite designers and one of my biggest supporters. I love his new collection. when I sat front row at Fashion Week and saw all the girls step out from behind a plastic sheet like Stepford Wives it reminded me of having my first ever Barbie doll at Christmas and opening her up out of the box. possibly the most exciting thing ever.
If you were a fashion designer, what might you call your line?
If I owned a store that sold clothing it would be called “Looking For Trouble.” And all the clothing would be a luxurious mix of formal evening wear and playfully preppy, and would get you into even more trouble than you could ever imagine.
Do you have any hidden talents?
Well if I told you, they wouldn’t be hidden, would they? Haha.
What was the last really good movie or TV show you watched?
I loved Doom Generation. It’s one of my favorite movies I’ve ever seen. I watched it again recently and it’s even better than I remembered. I relate to the characters because when I first moved to LA I lived out of dirtbag motel rooms for $25 a night trying to get on my feet…
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Macarons from Laduree.
Describe your dream date:
A date that I wouldn’t remember. Because anything fun is usually not something you would remember that next day.
What’s something about you that might surprise your fans? Something that they wouldn’t know or expect?
I used to be part of a religious group for a few years. kind of like a cult. At first it was fun singing songs about God and having so many new friends, but after a while it was brain-washing and really intense.
