WHAT'S THE BEST COMPLIMENT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?
My cousin, Celine, who directed my music video"Quittin Da Biz", called me a "high-functioning weirdo." This made me feel pretty fucking awesome. That's exactly the image I've been going for for a while.
WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'VE EVER GOTTEN?
The key to failure is trying to please everyone. My dad reminds me of this all the time. So now I please no one BUT MYSELF WASSUPPPP #notsorry
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU GOT YOUR FIRST PERIOD AND WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?
High school locker room and friends from my swim team.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
I'm very proud of my pronounced sideburns. I used to hate them because it made me look manly, but as I've gotten older I've realized they: 1) keep my ears and side-face warm during brutal NYC winters 2) Keep me looking questionably androgynous which is great when I play funny male characters, which is a lot.
WHAT ARE TWO ITEMS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
1 - Eat a large pepperoni pizza pie starting from the center of the pizza, working my way out towards the crust until you are left standing in the center of a ring of crust.
2 - Spiritual/yoga retreat in East Asia somewhere tbd.
TEACH US HOW TO DO SOMETHING.
How to make breakfast: Unwrap leftover eggs from yesterday's egg sandwich. Microwave for 30 seconds. Disconcerting smell? Add Tapatio and Netflix. Voila.
TELL US SOMETHING THAT IS TMI.
My first sexual experience was when I was in 7th grade I used to go down to my parent's basement and moon my pet birds 1x/week. It felt really wrong, but also really right.
