Irina Lazareanu's Marie Claire Fashion Shoot Video
In this exclusive interview, the indie rock muse and songbird talks life, love, and inspiration.
Left her with you yesterday, those whisper tell of regret. Taste the cigarettes today, and asking that way across the beach. What's that song we used to sing?
My name is Irina Lazareanu. I would describe myself as Bumble Bee. No, I model, and I write, and I play music. I dress depending on my mood every day. I mean, somebody described it as rock chic. I think it's quite nice, even sexy on a woman which is wearing a man's suit or a pair of trousers with an oversized coat. What inspires me is mostly characters like people in my life. They're a little bit different, and then also musicians and writers. Now I got to the place back in the city, near the East Village, and I'm quite happy.
Night is going. No one knows where the night is going. Lost and lost.
I think there's a very good vibe in New York right now that you can feel it. It's kind of booming and then-- especially in the art's world. My greatest fear would be myself. I would most admire-- I mean, it's gonna be a cliché to say about my parents. Well, my greatest achievement, maybe the fact that I haven't given up when everybody thought, you know, and the fact that I'm very perseverance, I got a lot of will. How many times did I have sex this weekend? Five. My parents gonna watch this?
Everybody can watch that. And [unknown] so--
I do. I do have a couple of mottos. I mean, I do have a lot of-- mostly, just to be honest and, you know, 'cause at the end of the line, no matter how much money you make, what you do, famous or are half famous or not, what job you do, I think is just to be kind to your fellow human beings you know. Have to look at yourself in the mirror, and at the end that for me is priceless.
You used to do it everyday. Say what you mean. Strange places no longer seen.
