#233: Charli XCX
Charli XCX on Tara Reid's TikTok, Expensive Underwear, The "@Suffering.Meat" Instagram Account, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Charli XCX to share a taste of her taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Charli XCX is a London-based musician, pop star, and icon that’s achieved huge mainstream success while also making some of the most subversive and influential pop music of the last decade with projects such as Pop 2, Charli, and CRASH, and songs like “Vroom Vroom”, “I love It”, “Gone”, and “Boom Clap”. There’ve only been a handful of artists this century with careers as dynamic and interesting as Charli’s, and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Lucky for us, she’s here today to tell us what she’s been into.
Without further ado
Maybe I’m a bit late on this but I only just discovered Tara Reid’s tiktok resurrection. I kind of think she’s the new queen of the internet and I’d give anything for her to stare seductively into the camera and sing one of my songs. She posts a lot of a cappella covers with her bffs Jedward and in the past she’s covered toxic and wonderwall so I can only imagine I’m up next.
This is probably one of my most visited Instagram pages. Lots of great pictures of mould and insects and tampons with cameras hidden in them. Maybe not great for morning scrolling.
One of my absolute favorite artists. I’ve got a load of their photographs all over my house in LA. Their work reminds me that I’m British and that generally speaking Brits are cooler than Americans.
💆🏻♀️ THE LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK IN BERRY FLAVOR
Ok so this beauty product is something I never leave the house without and if I accidentally do, I will literally turn the Uber around to go home and get it. I went on accutane when I was around 24 or 25 and since then my lips have always been consistently craving moisture. I tried a load of different lip balms and creams and whatever and the only one that truly saved me was the la neige lip sleeping mask. I’ve been using it like 5 times a day, every day for the past 5 years. I’m obsessed.
😏 EXPENSIVE UNDERWEAR
It’s just sexy.
