obsessed: marina and the diamonds
fake lashes that you can wear for days, and more of the musician's faves.
LEATHER JACKETS I keep buying leather jackets--I bought a really nice black leather jacket from Acne. And then Celine has another leather jacket; it's really nice but for something ridiculous, like eight grand, so I'm not sure I'm going to invest in it. But I think Celine's my favorite designer ever.
JOHN WATERS MOVIES I just watch movies all at once. At the moment I'm into John Waters--all the films are so ridiculous and kitschy and very, very campy. It's inspiration for the tour!
THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER I buy a lot of books and then I never, ever read them--it's really bad. I did read The Perks of Being a Wallflower; I read it after I saw the film on a plane a few weeks ago, so I just wanted to read the book. ICELAND I'd love to go to Iceland--I've never been before! I feel like it's three hours [from England], but it's incredibly expensive compared to the UK. But I'd still love to go.
CHUPI There's a jewelry designer who I love in Ireland and she just designs really delicate gold jewelry. You know, jewelry that you have on and you forget that you have on; it's really simple. I have five [pieces from Chupi]; there's a necklace called the infinity necklace--it's just a circle, basically. And then there are some really cute rings--heart rings, initial rings.
BROOKLYN BARS The Wythe Hotel has British pub bar with really nice food. There's another bar in Greenpoint called Black Rabbit which is good. I just like cocktails; I like quite strong drinks!
VELOUR LASHES They're cruelty-free [fake lashes], but they're made of mink fur. They're definitely not cheap but they will last for 25 times, and they're the best lashes I've ever had in my life. This is the bad thing with fake lashes: You start wearing them in the day and start feeling like a drag queen! Like, How did this happen?!
BREAKING BAD Everyone loves Breaking Bad, but I'm obsessed with it. In the UK I think we're just on the end of season five, but everyone shares the files on tour. I hate anything that's boring or violent action films, so when I started watching Breaking Bad, I couldn't fucking believe it! But I'm not really a TV person.
