Interview: Sky Ferreira Wants To Follow In Fiona Apple’s Footsteps
By Shannon Carlin
Sky Ferreira is getting pretty tired of talking about herself. She would really appreciate it if everyone would just let her get back to the music. But unfortunately for Sky, the majority of the world (or at least the internet) loves hearing her talk about her 2013 drug arrest or the recent claims that her video for “I Blame Myself” is racist, which she thinks you’re crazy for even thinking, by the way.
When Ferreira sat down with Radio.com last month, she admitted that this constant need for people to figure her out–”Is she like the pretty dumb girl or is she just off the wall crazy?” she mock questioned–is starting to get under her skin.
“I feel like now with like all these blogs and stuff, I feel like every single thing someone does, especially girls in pop music for some reason, is constantly analyzed…it’s just like, it’s not that complex,” she told Radio.com. “Not everything a girl does in pop music is a think piece.”
All this unwanted attention has also got her sympathizing with one of her favorite singers, Fiona Apple, who earned herself a rather dubious reputation thanks in no small part to her “the word is bulls–t” speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1997.
