What I Do, Job-wise: Contributing Editor for xoJane.com
What I Do, Fun-wise: I go to clubs and parties; I read a lot; I love art and galleries; and I hang out with magazine girls, night people, derel artists, and a few sociopaths. And I tape shit all over my walls constantly as many silly ADHD types are wont to do.
My Motto: "LET IT BLEED"
My Anti-Motto: "Respect Your Elders."
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Marilyn, duh, and Edie who doesn't count at all really, but of course from Day One it was rock stars rock stars rock stars for me anyhow.
My “celebs to make out with” list: First of all, I don't want to make out with anyone; I'm dead inside. I will say I love Sharon Stone, Keanu Reeves, Courtney Love, Tinsley Mortimer, Keith Richards and Pete Doherty. Britney, Bowie, Bambi. About a zillion models, artists and poets. A bunch of dead people. Groupies of the past you haven't heard of. ...I mean honestly I'd have sex with basically anyone famous who I'd consider more fascinating and significantly better-looking than I am, who was paying, in a glam hotel of my choosing, on select designer drugs.
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: There's a live version of "Ashes to Ashes" that kills me but it's not even on my iTunes. I don't know. My iTunes suck on this computer. I don't know how to get free music anymore. ..."GIMME MORE"? Yah.
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Without skimming? Huh? Who wrote these questions for this womens website? Can't we just be fully smart and realized brains? I skip passages all of the time but who cares? Weird! Anyway, "The Warhol Diaries". I read all of Andy's books over and over. I am a big reader; it's my favorite thing to do. Poetry every day. Lyrics websites. Anything and everything.
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: dirty white jeans, dirty white tanks tops, flats, dirty Balenciaga bags, rosaries, Ralph Lauren mens polos, disgusting t-shirts, vintage punk rock t-shirts, Lanvin tote bags, Indian print floaty stuff, loads of cheap beaded and leather bracelets, furs, Ray-Bans, glimmery mini skirts, Chloe motorcycle boots, Dior Homme mesh tank tops and black leather Goldsign jeans.
Beauty Products That I Hoard: YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick (in the bright red shades), Prestige Cosmetics black eyeliner, Bobbi Brown concealers, Pure Fiji body oil, Hair U Wear Clip-in Hair Extensions (what?!)
I smell like: Colette Black Musk Oil, Clean Perfume, Body Shop Coconut Body Butter, Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen SPF whatever (year-round just to smell beachy). Sex, angel dust, acid rain, amphetamine, Juicy Fruit, supernature! BRRRRRRR.
Have I ever faked an orgasm: Faking suicide is sexier...
