Below, the Bajan beauty opens up about what she wants out of her relationships, her career, her music — oh, and that one time she almost got a face tattoo.
On (thankfully) getting talked out of getting a face tattoo: “The tattoo artist said nope, I’m not gonna do it,” she says, “because if you’re looking at your face, it’s right there staring at you.
On what “turns her on”: “I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead. I could absolutely be dominant. But, in general, I’d rather… How do I say this in like a…non-X-rated version?” Insert lyrics to “S&M” here.
On the kind of music she sets out to create: “I want to make music that’s hopeful, uplifting. Nothing corny or supersentimental. I just want it to have the feeling that brings you out of whatever you’re going through. I want it to spark that fire. I want it to be real, authentic, and raw.”
