Karen O in Nylon + New Video

Published June 1, 2009 by Graham


Karen O is gracing the cover of Nylon Magazine this month– and she looks staggeringly awesome, naturally. Here are a couple of quotes from the interview:

Karen O, On Her Adolescence: “I used to be fairly shy… but you know, I was a volcano ready to blow. I went through quite a few styles. The Ugly Face – no, believe me, it was ugly. I was breaking out with zits… [and later] I had my hair pulled back and the hoop earrings. I was interested in style, but not necessarily in fashion… If we were playing spin the bottle, all the boys would be pretty bummed to kiss the halfie. But as you grow up, you start to realize what an asset it is to have that part of you. It shapes you.”

Hey Karen, Tell Us About Your Music for Where the Wild Things Are! “We wrote music that would be easy for kids to sing along with. The songs have that innocence and spirit with poppy hooks here and there. Simple, emotional, sweet stuff.”

And here’s the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs video, “Heads Will Roll”:
