Sick Of The Radio had a pleasant chat with Ed Banger’s only chick on the block, Uffie. We chit-chat about her upcoming fashion line with Diesel, her music video for “Pop The Glock“, her new album, and her double life… oh and cupcakes of course!
SICK OF THE RADIO: You came Paris to begin your fashion career, but instead became an electro hip-hop sensation without the intentions. Do you still have plans
to pursue the fashion industry?
UFFIE: DEFINITELY… I JUST FINISHED A CAPSULE COLLECTION WITH DIESEL THAT WILL BE OUT IN NOVEMBER.
SICK OF THE RADIO: How was your artist name UFFIE created?
UFFIE: ITS A NICKNAME MY DAD GAVE ME AS A CHILD THAT STOOK
SICK OF THE RADIO: After anxiously waiting for more than 4 years, your debut album, “Sex, Dreams & Denim Jeans” was finally released this summer. Do you wish you
released the album earlier in your career?
UFFIE: NO, IT WOULDNT HAVE BEEN THE ALBUM I WANTED IT TO BE IF I HAD…
SICK OF THE RADIO: You are juggling two different life changing events- being a new mother while taking on one country at a time with your debut album, “Sex, Dreams
and Denim Dreams”. What is it like in your shoes for a day while you are on tour versus being off tour?
UFFIE: WHEN OFF, WE WAKE UP AT 6 OR 7, WILL HAVE BREAKFAST THEN I WILL PROBABLY DO INTERVIEWS FROM 10-13H, SPEND THE DAY WITH MY DAUGHTER IF I DONT HAVE TO WORK.. WHILE ON TOUR THE TIMING IS PRETTY OPPOSITE FINISHING AT LATE HOURS, BUT STILL WAKING UP BEFORE NOON, SLEEP IS SERIOUSLY MISSED IN MY SCHEDULE THESE DAYS!
SICK OF THE RADIO: What is your favorite track off “Sex, Dreams & Denim Jeans” to perform live?
UFFIE: ART OF UFF DEFINITELY… I AM REALLY EXCITED WHEN YOU EXPAND THE SHOW TO ADD HONG KONG GARDENS
SICK OF THE RADIO: If you could collaborate with any two artist, who would you choose?
UFFIE: THE STROKES, T.I
SICK OF THE RADIO: “Pop The Glock” is such a fun music video. It gives off a radical 70′s feel with side effects of having an urge to watch it more than once. Who’s
idea was the music video’s story line?
UFFIE: MY BEST FRIEND NATHALIE CANGUILHEM… SHE¹S AMAZING!!!
SICK OF THE RADIO: A lot of people in the music video were having a great time.. Especially the Asian guy with the bowl haircut who was dancing in the bedroom by
himself and dancing in the swimming pool with a black “World Tour” shirt. Is he a friend of yours?
UFFIE: AHAHAHHH HES MY FAVORITE, I THINK HE¹S PRETTY FAMOUS IN THE LA NIGHT SCENE AS THE PANDA!
SICK OF THE RADIO: Do you prefer your cupcakes made with canned frosting or frosting made from scratch?
UFFIE: I LIKE THOSE DISGUSTING SUGARY ONES YOU HAVE FROM THE SUPERMARKET BAKERY!
SICK OF THE RADIO: What exciting things can we expect from you next?
UFFIE: NEW ALBUM ON THE WAY
