What is your beauty philosophy?
I’m in a moment in my life where I focus a lot on the inside beauty. We live in times when it’s difficult to have strong real connections with people, it’s rare, but when you find them, you know they are important. So, I focus on the beauty in people.
Also, I am aware that my looks and the way people perceive me help me a lot in my career, I am grateful for this and for the love I receive.
How is your creativity disrupting the culture?
I can’t say it’s disruptive creativity, but I always try to bring something new to the table: cool looks, different music videos, and special concepts for my songs.
What are three beauty hacks you live by
I don’t think I have hacks to share: I go monthly to skincare treatments, I follow a skincare routine daily, I drink water, and I go to the gym.
When getting prepared for a performance what beauty item is a must?
My make-up for the shows includes just a few products: foundation, blush, mascara, contouring, sometimes eye shadow, gloss.
What makes you a rebellious creator?
I’ve never described myself as a rebellious creator, but from time to time, I like to be eccentric and have bold looks in my videos and photoshoots or twists in the scripts in the storyline of my videos.
What lyric from Bad Girl hits home the hardest?
I can’t say I am one of those bad girls :))) I’ve always been involved in long-term relationships. But probably these from my part.
You wanna how I want, all a real good time
Who wants to cold heart when the sun doesn’t shine?
You could be hers or you could be mine
You could be mine, mine, mine
Time can fly by, baby if you let it
So you can go slow, you can come and get it
Good girls won’t tell you but oops I said it
Yeah I said it, yeah, yeah, I said it
What has been your journey getting into music?
I lived in the USA from 6 to 18 years old where I took piano lessons and singing lessons.
When I came to Romania to visit my family, a friend found out that I sing, so I was invited to go to a studio and record some demos. This is how I got to release my first single “Roses on Fire” and after that, “Morena”, both with Tom Boxer. And this is how my career started.
After a while, I was signed at Global Records, the team I work with and I released a lot of music, collaborations, special projects, and campaigns. It’s a beautiful ride!
Who would be a dream musical collab dead or alive?
Beyonce, Chris Brown, Ciara, Usher.
What is next for you this year?
More music to be released shows, and an album.
