Saturday, April 10, 2010

J: ok, I'm recording...
F: Sweet.
J: hi, this is James, and I'm with Freja.
F: Freja, yes...
J: A lot of people mispronounce your name, Freja, which really kinda pisses me off. They say Friza, they say Froza, they say Friche, Freya,...
F: they say Friche,Freya,... whatever
J: But it's Freja.
F: It's Freja.
J: Cool, so...
F: What's this so about?
J: I have a few questions for you, first, V5.
F: V5, whatever is V5?
J: which is, um, starting with, what r u working on right now?
F: what am I working on?
J: ye, abstractly or concretely?
F: not anything, lately, the best coz she know is answer ever.
J: ok, um, what's been inspiring u lately? like I was really inspired by the music u were playing me. we were listening to this really cool danish group, this girl that sounded like...
F: yeah, Kira and Kindred Spirits.
J: she sounded like Janis Joplin, sort of.
F: ye, it does inspire me. but ususally, i secretly sometimes write.
J: oh, what do u write?
F: music, lyrics, and olla, but it's only when i m in the bad mood. it's kinda like when u r happy, which i am right now, i'm not very creative. so i m not creative right now, it's just, i m not really working on anything. now i m just happy, and enjoying life and enjoying all that's going on.

(short break)

J: sorry, we just had a little temporary break.
F: that's cool.
J: so, ok, that's very interesting, because in fact i feel the same way, sometimes when i m the happiest, it's like...
F: not very big, um, flat, please.
J: we r at a restaurant. (lol...) all the flat, too, by the way, still natural water, in the bottle.
F: (lol...) u r taking the place.
J: flat,too. hidden in ur middle for a second.
F: (lol..)
J: coz i write sometimes,too. and i find that when i m really depressed, like feeling awful, it's when the most incredible stuff comes out, like really freely and deep.
J: but like when i feel good, i m like...
F: very emotional. when u feel good, u don't really have that. coz u dont have anything to like... i guess happy feelings r just not as deep as sad feelings, maybe. i thought about that a lot.
J: it's weird, we should be able to... ok, and then one more thing, who r ur heroes? who are your heroes?
F: can i do a song in that? i'll sing a song. (singing...) whatever, I don't have any heroes. i don't, i don't have any, i dont have any heroes, people ask me about that a lot, and i don't, i don't think i have any. i really like women that can express themselves through music. but, that's probably it.
J: that's cool, u r kinda my hero.
F: i m ur hero? (lol)
J: u r my hero. i think u v done a great job. doing ur job, being what u r and standing for what u stand for, and i mean, Freja is kinda known in this business like the tough, know-bullshit girl and i think that's that's really, u know, new in this fashion world. so i mean that's good.
F: is it? um, i don't know that.
J: ok, describe ur look
F: my look, oh, all we go, i v been told that it's been 60s, u know, bangs, long hair, it's brown... I can do big eyes,look, u can't see that.
J: without false eyelashes?
F: exactly.
J: she is doing the big eye look right now. but u can't see it.
F: u r kinda missing it.
J: how do u dress, do u wear a lot of fashion? back home?
F: um, i wear, whatever i find is cute. but i m quite simple. give me a tank top and some jeans and i m very satisfied.
J: do u wear high-heels?
F: high-heels's for working. it causes pain and it uses some muscles from ur legs and that's not nice.
J: u've really great legs.
F: oh, thank u.
J: u r welcome.
F: u've been working on them all day.(lol)
J: i've been working on them all day.(lol) they used up a lot of cream. they r so long.
F: very expensive cream from hollywood.
J: ok, now, a very private personal question. what's ur favorite way to keep warm this winter?
F: oh, that would probably be with my lover, in bed... or maybe in the shower.
J: with hot water, do u take hot showers or cold showers?
F: hot, cold? what the f... what's wrong with u?
J: oh, here we go, we r ready to order.
