Me being from California I know how easy it is to spot a musician or someone striving to be an actor of some sort. So the real task is when you can find somebody who is totally different than every body . Some one who can multi task and isn't afraid to step out of the circle and into a square - and that person is Sky Ferreira . If you own a myspace than you probably already know her as being one of the many beautiful faces of one of the dopest creative T-shirt lines - waffles . [ or street gang - as they like to put it lol ] but if you dig a little bit harder & deeper to get to know this wise beyond her 16 years girl - you will find an old soul . Her voice is so Unique and strong [ sorta like you Duffy ] it would make you think "This cant be her" but it is and shes only 16 years old - and with an even more tasteful style and a Photogenic face we gotta love us some Sky . And quite frankly she is a phenom in the net world x probably one of the biggest deals in the streets of Los Angeles [ ;) ] . Not caring if anyone is on her band wagon nor afraid to speak her mind who wouldn't love her?!Wwith her tough hardcore but still girl next door image she brings life to this dull light and with her myspace ranking at 1289116 (820997 more since I interviewed her) views and numerous photo shoots in her back pocket - Sky's got us wondering what can she do better than this?! seeing how she isn't signed - and isn't legal.. yet, and some how she already has 26931 (vs 12214 when I interviewed her) of myspace wrapped around her fingers like puppets . so i decided to get to know this multi talented Retro Princess, beyond her vintage photographs and catchy slogans the real sky just to see what all the fuss is about .
