Kid Sister spoke with Spinner about straddling the fence between rap and pop and her reluctance to record pop music, most notably a pop track on her 2009 record ‘Ultraviolet’ which her record label pushed her to make. “It was supposed to be my pop smash and I was like, ‘I told you guys, I don’t want to do this. I’m not Britney Spears – it’s just not me,'” the 31-year-old explained.
But don’t lump her in with other female rappers, suggesting the few involved are either party girls or lesbians. “There’s two roads in life [as a female rapper]: drinking or having sex with women,” she explained. “I’m neither – I’m a tomboy who happens to really like nails. I’m like a grandma.”
Kid Sister spoke with USA Today in a Q&A, where the veteran rapper talked about Lollapalooza and her thoughts on the legacy of the festival on its 20th anniversary. “It’s so great that Perry (Farrell) and the people behind Lolla have chosen the city to do the festival in,” the 31-year-old Illinois native said. “See, Chicago is just such a perfect place to have an event like that because … Lollapalooza is like a homegrown-feeling festival where you have old people, young people, yuppies, hipsters, hippies, just all kinds of people. It’s all about the music, and everybody is there to have fun.”

AOL’s Spinner spoke with Kid Sister in a Q&A, asking the rapper about how fellow Chicago native Kanye West’s incident with Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards will affect the reception of his new album. “I didn’t really care about it, I thought it was kind of funny actually,” the 30-year-old said. “Come on, everyone makes silly decisions. It was a silly decision and that was the extent of it. I think the music speaks louder than anything, so as long as you make really good, visionary, forward-thinking music then it doesn’t matter what you do. I mean, he’s not Chris Brown! I think he’s all right.” The entire interview at Spinner.com has since been removed.
