I’ve had a serious music crush on Wynter Gordon for some time now. But it’s her latest epilepsy-heavy music video for “TKO” (featuring The Oxymorons) which gave me major heart explosions and an “is my coffee roofied?” mind f***albeit in a good way. A REALLY good way. The aptly titled “TKO” is some serious transcendent pop banger OMFG sizzling hot shit, you guys. It also helps that she boasts enviable model looks, rafter-reaching pipes and an entourage of ’90s-raver-clad cuties. In a sea of ZZzzZZzzZ-inducing recycled pop starlets, Wynter really knows how to warm a gay up. So thanks for that, girl. Read on for my chit-chat with pop music’s savior while I cool down by making snow angels on St. Mark’s Place.
What is your zodiac sign? What are the ups and downs of being this sign? I’m a Virgo. I’m passionate about everything I do. I’m a thinker — it’s hard to go to sleep sometimes with all the thoughts in my head.
What is your spirit animal? A wild stallion running free in the wind.
What would your wedding song be? I want something that sounds epic but it doesn’t have to be about love. Something like Enya’s “Only Time” or the score to ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
Rihanna, Solange, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, et al all want to collab with you. But there can only be one! Who would you pick and what would you want the sound to be like? Solange. We would make some indie pop gold and have a good time doing it. She seems so down to earth and free-spirited. I do like all the ladies though.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I’ll prob change my name, be in a indie pop band, have a book or two out, living overseas with my sexy ass husband and my either biological kid or adopt a sweet baby.
