It seems uncomfortable and potentially insulting to label someone a ‘pop star’. But reminiscing on the attributes of the ’90s pop star, the main things that come to mind are far from insulting: catchy hooks, badass outfits, every fan wanting to be their best friend and/or boyfriend.
Butterclock is a Berlin-based solo artist who possesses all of traits, with a twist. When Noisey caught up with her recently they got a list of her favourite things, and it’s enough to make you want to put her poster on your wall. Three highlights:
On party stores
“It’s the next best thing when you can’t afford to go to Disneyland… all the time. I literally spend hours of my life in party stores”
On Berlin’s planetarium
“Inside the Planetarium is this environment that makes me faint with excitement…it’s a mix of fantasy and raw reality, futuristic and desolated.”
On hair salons
“I used to hang there all the time after school, rather than playing with other kids, I would go to this wig store, eat some Creole food and made friends with the amazing hairdressers.”
