What was your biggest moment of 2012? 

GRIMES The entire Full Flex Express, a cross-Canada train tour that Skrillex organized. It really changed my views on a lot of things. Also, he’s one of my all-time favorite artists…I actually cried when I found out I was going on the tour!

How do you feel about the term It Girl? 

G I’m down with it. It makes me think of the movie Clueless, so I guess it’s a good thing.

Who is your favorite It Girl of all time? 

G Murasaki Shikibu, a Japanese lady-in-waiting who is considered to have written the first novel in the 11th century. The fact that the first novel ever written was by a woman in an extremely oppressive cultural climate is not only very impressive but also totally underappreciated.

What are your goals for 2013?

G I want to find a way to banish water bottles from festivals. Sometimes when a show is over you can’t even see the ground, it’s so covered in garbage. It’s depressing.
