South Korean girl group 2NE1 have conquered the world with their pure, relentless pop music. CL’s, Bom’s, Dara’s and Minzy’s first album “To Anyone” started at number one on the weekly Gaon Album Chart, and gained the number one on the monthly chart. Now fans around the globe are impatiently waiting for their international debut.
Singer and rapper CL is one-fourth of the acclaimed K-Pop girl group 2NE1. Rihanna follows her on Instagram, she’s been hanging out with A$AP and she’s a close friends with Jeremy Scott. British style magazine Dazed & Confused met the 22-year old and talked to her about career advices, casual dating and what it’s like to be a muse.
What has been your favourite 2NE1 moment of recent times?
Actually, I can’t pick one, it’s really hard but I love travelling with them and meeting our fans from all around the world. I love when we’re on tour and when we’re on stage. That’s the moment for us. It was our first show in Seoul when we started the second tour, we had the eye contact on stage and were like, ‘okay, it’s starting’ and you feel that butterfly. It was a good moment to start the show and start to our first global tour.
You’ve been called a fashionista, the Baddest Female, but what do all these titles mean, if anything?
I don’t know. Those are things I love but I don’t do it for that name, I don’t do it for people to call me fashionista or a leader but I love fashion and art and I’m enjoying what I do. I love being called being Baddest Female. On stage I’m a bad ass so they can call me that.
Have you ever worried about what other people think of you?
Yes. I went through that phase when I was kind of thinking about other people. It was in 2011 and everybody was trying to put me down because of my confidence. So I was going through, like, do I think about that or do I do what I love and just be me. I was struggling for a while but you live once and you can only be you, you can’t be somebody else. I don’t want to live my life regretting things. I want to say what I want to say, do what I wanna do. This moment will never come back. You have to capture every moment you get and appreciate it. You have to have respect for other people and appreciate everything in life but you have to trust in yourself.
