Who Am I ?
An Introduction to LOLI LUX
1: Who am I?
I’m LOLI LUX, bitch!
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I just finished my Eastern European tour with the MTV Release of WANNABE Music video and the new track “WannaBE 2011″. Now, I am wrapping up the MTV release for the rest of Europe, and the physical release of the EP. I’m excited to work on the new tracks with a few very talented producers. They are going to be so fun. I can’t wait to share.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
Born in Ukraine, I studied in Oxford, then lived and partied in London, then moved in Los Angeles. I currently reside in NYC. Later, I will be off to LoliLand Island with all of the cool human beings I picked up with me from this universe.
4: Who is your biggest hero?
Freddie Mercury. His songs have so much meaning that my heart wants to rip itself out when I hear them. Also, he was such a strong person. Much MUCH respect to him.
5: What book is your bible?
The girl’s bible – Why Man Marry Bitches. The title is a little misleading, but that’s what sold it. The book basically teaches women OR men about how not to be a doormat in a relationship, and how to have self respect and get the deserved respect from your partner. This book saved my love life when I was 18 and naive, and it saved a bunch of my girlfriends from abusive relationships with Prince Charming.
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
Love: traveling, city life, mashed potatoes, green tea frozen yogurt, life, music, wind and rain.
Hate: dishonesty and empty promises.
7: What is your raison d’être?
I want to bring more happiness to this world. I want to help those who need my help, and bring people closer together. I think it would be great for the world to have a little more of an open mind and a little less cruelty.
8: What is your favorite color?
That’s always changing… rainbow?
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
Super Mario, who is not really a comic book superhero… but his jumps are hella funny.
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
11: What turns you on?
Natural self confidence, light sarcasm, and piercing eyes.
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
Q: What’s your biggest secret ?
A: I guess we can never have an answer to that, otherwise it wouldn’t be “the biggest secret”. You will just have to read my autobiography one day…
