When The Fix Met MAAD...
Last Friday, The Fix team headed up #LFW to snap some slayin' street style, meet beaut bloggers and interview soulstress, DJ, model and all-round mega babe, MAAD.
With her brand new single, 90s Love, out this week, MAAD popped by at our London showroom to pick out her fave boohoo pieces and for a game of This Or That...
How are you finding London?
I love London! This is my second day here, I have a show tonight for Notion Magazine so I'm very excited about that. And obviously the style and the clothes out here - I'm looking forward to doing some shopping!
Have you been to see any fashion shows?
We went to an event last night that was a lot of fun. My sleep pattern is a bit off but I'm up and awake and I'm here!
What do you love most about London?
I really love the weather out here. I have friends who are from London who are like "It's gonna rain all the time, you're not gonna like it" but I'm like "This is perfect!" 'Cos I love layers, a nice lil' jacket - you don't always get to do that in New York.
Tell us about your new music...
I'm preparing to release a new single next week called 90s Love. (Check it out here) The whole idea behind it is that it's a song dedicated to a time when love felt real. It's a love song. And I love it. My EP, Lé Funk will be out in autumn. It's very fun, funky and sexy. I can't wait to get it out.
What kind of vibe is it?
It's definitely upbeat, I'm very much obsessed with the 70s so whenever I create I'm always like..."Diana Ross, would she wanna wear this outfit? Would she wanna sing this song?" I just like playful records, I like to have fun on stage and bring energy and the music matches that.
How would you describe your style?
My style varies. Today, I felt like I was coming out of the 70s. Tomorrow I might wanna be in all black and feel very gothic. I've got this ridiculous choker that everyone makes fun of but the vibe of it is cool. Anything for fashion.
We're gonna play some 'This or That' questions. Would you rather live one life that lasts a thousand years or ten lives that last one hundred years each?
Ooh, ten lives that last a hundred years each - I'll take that one.
Would you rather be able to read or be able to read minds but be illiterate?
I think I'd rather be able to read minds...or be illiterate? Definitely reading minds, please!
Would you rather never be able to speak again or be able to speak but always have to say everything that's on your mind?
Ooh, I feel like I do that now anyway. Just keepin' it real, 100% true.
Would you rather be able to change the past or see into the future?
See into the future.
Would you rather never laugh again or never use your smartphone again?
Oh! Never laugh again. I'd rather be as sombre as they come than to not be able to use my phone.
Would you rather eat the same meal for the rest of your life or never use Instagram again?
Oh god! I'm actually really picky with my food so I'd rather never use Instagram again. I love a good lobster chow.
