I'm a singer, songwriter, natural history enthusiast, and lady. I was raised in the woods, but now I live in Brooklyn. My spirit animals are Johnny Cash, Kate Bush, Tom Waits and Jack White.

People always ask me, “Do you think you’ll ever tone down your look?” And I say, Well, hell no! Why should I? I was gaudy when gaudy wasn’t cool. Before Gaga I was Ga-udy. I was being outrageous even before Madonna. Eventually people realize that there’s a brain under this hair, and a heart under these boobs, but I also like being a character that they can enjoy. It makes it kind of fun when I do get out on stage and tell my real story, and they get to see the real me. I’m a very artificial-looking person, but I’m a very real person.
