ALLURE: Any particular merchandise?
WS: [I Love Dr. Jart+]. The moisturizing face masks are my the whole lot. I’ve been implementing that into my skin-care routine at the very least twice every week.
ALLURE: I additionally wish to discuss a bit bit about your band, The Anxiety. Y’all have been getting a ton of buzz. When I used to be a youngster (a very long time in the past!), I used to be tremendous into emo. Seeing you give that various rocker aesthetic… I want I had this illustration in 2004!
WS: My mother and the primary singer of Straight Line Stitch have been the solely two Black ladies that I ever knew who have been singing rock music. Oh! and Fefe Dobson. Those three have been the solely ones and we’d like greater than three!
I simply hope that, after me placing out this album, that extra Black women are like, you already know what, eff it — I wish to do that, too. I wish to play guitar, I wish to play bass, I wish to sing, I wish to scream, I wish to play drums, I wish to do this shit. We want extra of us.
ALLURE: Especially in a style that actually comes from us.
WS: We have been so brainwashed by stereotypes. Sister Rosetta Tharpe, [was] one of the first black feminine electrical guitarists so way back, when that wasn’t accepted, when ladies weren’t even allowed to play electrical guitar like that. The ladies performed acoustic and the males did the electrical. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was like, eff that, I’m going to select up this electrical guitar and thrash and sing the blues, honey! Even although it was impressed by blues, it was rock. When I say that to quite a bit of Black folks, they do not know. We want to recollect. We have to do not forget that we did this shit. We have to do not forget that we have been the starting.
ALLURE: It’s fascinating how we typically relinquish some of the stuff that we create. Who says Black women do not do rock and roll? Look at Tina Turner. Tina Turner particularly, was like, I wish to do rock music, as a result of that’s what I do.
Seeing somebody who seems to be such as you making this music — I actually suppose that quite a bit of women are feeling seen and feeling extra open and inclined to embracing that half of themselves. The rock-and-roll aesthetic is enjoyable. That shit is so cool.
WS: It’s a lot enjoyable and everybody ought to have the ability to stay their greatest rock-and-roll life. No one needs to be barred off from that, as a result of of the shade of their pores and skin or the texture of their hair or no matter it might be.
