Kat Von D is Latina's November Cover Girl, she talks about her upcoming rock album and how she’s recovered from a series of failed relationships & more...
About failed relationship:
“I’m not angry at [ex-fiancé] Joel [Zimmerman]. I’m not angry at [ex-fiancé] Jesse [James], I’m not angry at Nikki [Sixx]. I’m just angry at myself for wasting my time, because I could have finished my record.”
On reconciling with her dad through music:
“I would teach [my dad] to play Guns ’N Roses or the Misfits on his accordion and he would play along while I played the guitar and sang.”
Her Goals for the future:
“I want to make furniture. I want to complete the album, go on tour. I have a documentary that I’ve been filming secretly for three and a half years. Maybe write another book. Tons of things. I’ve really gotten into entomology—I bought a lot of butterflies and I’m learning how to pin them and make lampshades, like, Victorian era. If I were to write out a to-do list, it would fill the entire wall.”
She talks about her mom:
"I always considered her a beauty queen though she wasn’t a pageant mom or anything like that. She was just a beautiful Latin woman [with] naturally raven hair. She was a stay at home mom, had these three kids and she would watch telenovelas. She wore makeup all the time."
Romance and being independent:
"There’s a part of me that [likes] the idea of being able to share everything with somebody other than my dad or my friends. It sounds nice, but I don’t need it. I’m okay without it."
On working with Sephora on her makeup line:
"Sephora has always been the best, in the sense that they love me for me and that they let me be me. That’s the coolest part. I think that's why the products are great–because there's a sincerity and authenticity."
About Us awesome fans:
"Interaction with fans is super important to me. I have the best fans ever. They’re always the most creatively charged people. I’ve saved every single piece of fan mail that I’ve ever gotten. We have an archive of it and stuff. I think if I can inspire that then it's like, my job is done. I try my best to try to respond to people especially through Twitter. I’ve [even] named a few eye shadows after different followers and stuff and some limited edition stuff. It’s awesome."
