3. If you could collaborate with any musician – living or dead – who would you choose?
Dove: Oh damn, that’s hard. Who would I choose? I mean, I have a big obsession with producers – how I love Diplo, and I love Labrinth … I would actually die to work with Labrinth. I feel like if I was in a room with Labrinth for a week, it would change my life.
Ehis: MANIFEST THIS!
Dove: Oh, honey, I’m on it.
4. Describe your style in three words.
Baby goth fitness.
5. If someone could play you on a TV show, who would you choose?
OK, Ehis, I’m going to talk to you as my best friend, because that’s where we are. [Writer’s note: I played it cool, but internally, I was fan-girling so hard.] My problem is that everyone sees me in a completely different way than who I really am – which I talk about all the time. I think it’s because my energy is amazing, what others would call “bubbly”, but that’s not what it is at all. But I read like this. It always makes me laugh, because I got my first tattoo illegally when I was 14, I’ve been pansexual my whole life, I swear like a sailor, my love language is to roast people, I I used to paint my hair in henna when I was 11, but people would say, “Oh, she’s a little princess, I can’t wait for her to come out of her Disney days.” And I’m like, “WHAT ARE PEOPLE SEEING?” [Laughs]. I’ve always been confused about this, but I just let it happen because the public perception is so far away from who you are, so I’m just like, “Fuck it”. People are going to say like, Kristin Chenoweth, but it must be someone fucking weird … like I would choose Aubrey Plaza – we have exactly the same energy. Aubrey doesn’t know it yet, but we’re demonically linked.
6. What was your favorite part of the “LazyBaby” music video?
It’s hard to say, because all day I was just fucking and playing and we were just capturing that. But my favorite part in general is not necessarily a part, but just the fact that I really see me in this video. Like, throughout my career, I tried so hard do not show myself because I really hated myself, and assumed everyone was going to hate me, so if I want to be in the public eye I can’t bring to light my true essence because I would ruin everything I have built. But then the second that I started to let myself to be my full and unashamed self, the more I loved my job, the more I loved myself and the more I felt connected to my life. So, seeing myself in the “LazyBaby” video, I thought to myself, “Wow, what an arrival.” Plus the boy I kissed at the end was really cute.
