Over the past week, I've been putting myself through a considerable amount of stress trying to figure out what I should dress my background singers and myself in while we're in LA for the Grammy events. As you know, being in that environment can work wonders on an artist's career, so I am taking this trip to lA very seriously. I want to make the best impression possible while I'm there, but I also want to be comfortable. So I've been putting myself through the rigors trying to decided what look to go for...and today, out of the blue, it hit me. I know exactly how I want my background singers and myself to look. I want us to look like... us.
In order to understand what I mean when I say we have our own sense of style, you'd have to see some pictures of the type of stuff that we wear, both onstage and in real life. Comfort is really important to us, because we all like to dance, and you never know when the mood will hit. I think that instead of trying to find "designer this" and "trendy that," I want us to just be ourselves. We DON'T wear designer clothes just for a label, we'll only wear it if it's bad ass. We DON'T get all dressy to fit into posh environments, we just do our own thing and let our personalities speak for us. We DON'T dress for attention, we wear what we like and are indifferent to both good and bad attention, because we weren't thinking about public opinion when we got dressed. That's how we are, and I don't want to STOP being that way just because we're going to be down at the Grammies.
