10 THINGS WE LEARNT ABOUT: Cat Power
Charlyn Marshall is better known by her stage name Cat Power. The American singer-songwriter performed at Oppikoppi this last weekend when The Juice sat down with her to talk about her life. Here's the interesting tit bits we learnt that you probably never knew.
1) She's been caught in a love triangle with David and Damon. "Neither of them knew"
2) Not lesbian but tried it
3) She chose her name after being told she was the lead singer meeting someone with a cat construction hat.
4) Her stage name is Cat Power but she loves dogs. "In my past life I was a dog"
5) She's pretty chuffed about being one of the first woman to front a rock band
6) She's had an abortion. "I remember not processing it, not thinking. I regret it to this day"
7) She left her first band to be a baker. "I decided to leave it all to make my own bread and paint on the side"
8) You shouldn't keep a sneeze in "Always sneeze out or you'll get an aneurysm in your eyes. It'll bleed from the back of your eyes"
9) She hated Cape Town and she's even writing a book about it... in Cape Town
10) On Sundays she watches The Simpsons in black and white
11) She's really good at accents! When she tells stories she mimics the characters voice. It's cute
