In the greenroom with La Roux
When Elly Jackson – lead singer of LaRoux most famous for her infectious hook on Bulletproof-walks into our greenroom, the first thing you notice is her all black dress-code. She wears layers of loosely fitting black tops, tailored pants, and slicks back her famous strawberry short crop in a way only SHE could make look this cool. Her jewelry is minimal, and still manages to look edgy. She plops down on the sofa in front of the bright lights to start our interview and right away it’s apparent that she’s friendly, sharp, and best of all – wickedly funny.
Since we know all of our Roxy fans would have loved to ask her questions, we invited everyone to post questions on our Facebook page. See below to see if your question made it & check out the video to see the interview!
Here are some excerpts:
These 3 Roxy fans from all over the world happen to have all asked the same kind of question.
Tannia Lilivette Apodaca, Patrícia Caldeira Bernardo, Chelsea Dixon:
What is your Inspiration?
“Obviously we’re inspired by […] 80s music, 80s performers, 80s pop stars,…Joni Mitchell. It comes from a lot of different places; you pick up little things from different places and it rubs off on you but you’re maybe aware of it.”
AnDrea Ornelas Astorga:
Why do you choose a futuristic look?
“…It makes sense with the music really, electronic music and futurism go hand in hand. The artwork for the record was very inspired by Bladerunner…”
Are you vegan?
“I’ve just turned bloody vegan…”she says, right after asking jokingly “What is vegan, again?”
And lastly, one question that didn’t’ make the video, that she took in stride was a question from Kristyna Kucerova:
Why is she so awesome?
Of course she knew we were being cheeky, and laughed it off.
What we hope she does know though is that in fact, we DO think she is awesome.
