[photogallerylink id=78327 align=left]
It’s always exciting to encounter a musician who’s completely accessible, despite having their career just on the cusp of blowing up- and that’s exactly what you get with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dev[/lastfm].
The vocals behind some of the hottest songs of 2010, recently took the time to speak to us about her mtvU Woodie nomination, her headlining gig at The Dinah and anticipating her hot new album, which is slated for release later in the summer.
What was it like to be nominated for an mtvU Woodie award?
It’s amazing- I love it.
I feel like the Woodies are doing great things and for my generation, MTV has done a lot to break new artists and let them share their music.
So it was an honor; it’s really exciting.
Have you played The Tap Tap Revenge iPhone game for your song “Bass Down Low”?
I actually haven’t. I don’t have an iPhone and everybody in my crew has a BlackBerry, but my sister has actually played it and she got a pretty high score.
She was like, “Dev, I can beat you at your own song!”
It’s really dope, I love that game.
I’ve played it before, but I just haven’t played my own song.
Let’s talk about The Dinah in Palm Springs, Calif., which is the largest lesbian event in the world. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ke$ha[/lastfm] have all been headliners. This year you have the honor. How do you feel about it, are you ready?
Yes! I’m really excited. I’m down with all that stuff and I think it’s cool that we can support each other.
You know me and The Cataracs get to perform, so it’s going to be a good night.
