Do you have a stage name?
My name is Stasia star and I got that name because when I was younger I was a pro dancer and people started calling me Stasia star so it stuck.
When did you realize that you wanted to make music?
I was performing since I was a kid but I didn’t get serious about music until I was 11 by modeling and acting. When I was 14 I started going to the studio, in high school I was in a group but after high school when we went in separate ways was when I started my solo career. So its been like my whole life that I have been doing music.
Have you always been interested in rapping or do you sing too?
I do sing, I’m a song writer first so I sing and the rapper just came about because its kind of just my swag, I have different appeals but as a kid my dad listened to a lot of rap music so I was always like I wanna do what biggie does.
Is your music style and your personal style synced in or is it separate? Do you have a stage persona?
No I definitely am who I am all the time like my fashion sense, fashion has always been a part of me, when people start hearing my songs and my lyrics I talk about fashion a lot I like to blend music fashion and art. So the way I dress is definitely expressive of my songs and the music videos when they come up people will see how they acquaint to each other. I don’t have a stylist so I would go on stage like this, I just do what I want to do.
What makes your style “different”?
What makes my style different is that I’m fearless, I’m not worried or afraid to wear what I want to wear. We just shot me with a paint splatter trench, when I was going to high school in the inner city everybody was like wearing Jordans and Roca Wear and I was stepping in with juicy couture, marc Jacobs, I was always into fashion, I like to wear crazy things; my hair is crazy. I like to express myself through fashion; I really don’t like to look plain like that freaks me out.
How do you find inspiration with fashion and with music?
Inspiration with fashion; I read a lot of fashion blogs, I watch a lot of movies, but I have always been somebody that it comes from who I am, I am a little crazy so its just really how I am feeling, I really love vintage fashion my mom was really fashionable so a lot of her clothes I ended up taking and re creating and with music I’m just inspired by my own life own experiences relationships having fun, my inspiration basically comes from life.
Describe your style.
I would describe my style as urban high fashion chic.
Is there something in your closet you cant live without? Or does your style change with time?
I have so much clothes but the things I always need is a structured blazer I always need something with sequin, I wear a lot of black so sometimes I through own a sequin jacket and it makes it pop, I have a lot of heels, but I always need a statement jacket, I have like five different biker jackets.
What do you think is the most important thing in ones appearance for example; shoes, hair, clothes, handbag, attitude, etc.
I think that when people see me first they’re clearly gonna see my fashion sense but once they get to talk to me, sometimes people see me and think I’m crazy like she dresses this way so she must be this kinda person, but I think the most important thing is just being you and being able to express yourself and just being cool and being chill.
My dream job, its crazy I’ve gotten asked this before, I cant see my life not having music and fashion in it, I’m gonna own a fashion company, I want to style myself and eventually get into styling other up and coming artist. Just being a musician, touring the world, selling platinum records and winning a Grammy or a few Grammies that’s like my dream job to work in the art, music, entertainment industry. So I’m pursuing my dream job.
You mentioned you like LA and NY but if you had to choose a dream place to live which would it be ?
I def choose NY with a vacation house in LA, I’m very NY I’m very city, I like to hop in the train and just go. In LA you need a car, but NY is fast paced, I want to live in Manhattan at some point and also Paris. I need like three bodies hahaa.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change?
So many things that I would change but I think the number 1 thing I would change cause I feel like a lot of the issues from the world stem from this, I feel like people just don’t know how to be themselves, whatever it may be hate war, racism anything can come from not knowing how to be themselves so I would change people to be more confident with who they are because if you’re confident in who you are then you have no reason to go and try to hurt somebody else. I would change that and also Id make Chanel have a free day.
There is a quote that says “every person is here for reason, everyone has a purpose”; what would you say is your purpose?
I definitely think my purpose is to make music and just be who I am. I feel like there’s those people who come along in life and sometimes they end up being super stars or teachers or what have you or role models because I’ve always been somebody who has been really expressive and a leader so I think that me just being myself and making great music hopefully it will inspire other people to just do epic shit.
What is your hobby/hobbies?
I love to cook ! Other than music and fashion I love to cook
Your favorite artist?
My fv artist would probably be I have so many I love Lauren hill, BIG, Nicki Minaj, Remy ma, jay z, Beyonce, and Amy Winehouse, I also like Adele and country music.
Marc Jacobs, Coco Chanel, Balmain, and Givenchy.
When it comes to fast fashion?
Zara, H&M and top shop
If you could go back and give your 13 year old self a piece of advice what would it be?
I was crazy but I would tell myself to focus and to not be afraid to be myself and stand up for myself and others. I was a little insecure when I was younger and I would just tell me to do whatever the fuck I want.
This is Stasia's Youtube Channel but I am going to be making my own youtube channel soon so stay tuned loves.
Keep up with the gorgeous rebel Stasia Star
