I did an interview with a friend for my other pet project NAYOP. He does freelance journalism and occasionally takes pictures. Some of them are of moi. The article has gotten some amazing feedback (thank you all for that!) I thought I would share the behind the scenes view of what it’s like to do an interview with me. 😉 Dominic is a trooper I have to say! When he showed up I was in the middle of making some lunch, wearing my jammies, hadn’t bother to brush my hair (just my teeth) and to hell with make-up! This was about as naked as naked could get.
Things you would have likely over heard:
“Steph, what’s with the sun glasses?” “I don’t want to bother with make-up, what is this Cosmo?”
“Are you seriously not wearing a bra?” “I’m not wearing any panties either, what’s it to you? Please, call the crew from what not to wear”
And so we talked… Over a plate of my bad ass nachos, which are insanely messy but freaking awesome to chow down on! While we traded insults back and forth about how much of a slob I appeared to be (It was SUNDAY) and how maybe, just maybe I may have taken the whole thing a little more seriously had the interview been with someone else. OK maybe not, I might have showered but to hell with the rest. After all, the article was to be titled the naked truth.
Essentially an article debunking the myths on how not all tattooed people are bad asses (even though I AM, with or without my tattoos ;)) How one person can make a difference and I finally publicly speak out about how I felt to loosing one of my closest friends 2 years after the fact. It’s not something I openly speak about and while lately I’ve been taking up with talking smack about some really bad dates I’ve had (Oh come on, you all know you LOVE the fodder for le blog!) and political non sense, this is important to me.
And while the behind the scenes portion was fun and full of total non sense, the article itself speaks volumes. This is why I posed naked and with no make up. I bared a portion of my soul to the world and I didn’t feel that it was right to ‘cover up’ any portion of myself either with clothing, make up or props for the photo shoot. It doesn’t get any more real then this.
