Name

Smoke Weed Eat Pussy has been penned as the most controversial song ever. It's been praised by some but also been met with equal amounts of criticism. Was that your intention? To cause controversy, to offend, or entertain?

I don't know, I just wanted to release a fun song.

You're obviously a bit of an expert on cunnilingus, having spent every day day on the job. Do you have any tips for our readers?

Ask the one you kiss down there: what do you need? Follow the tix

What else do you like to do (apart from smoke weed and eat pussy)?

I love to be in nature's arms. Sailing and hiking, swimming, longboarding...

Where next? How do you plan to raise the bar and up the controversy? How far are you prepared to go?

I dont have limits, I'm borderline.

Your lyrics limit the airplay potential on mainstream radio, do you plan to censor your tracks for the mass market or do you not give a fuck?

I just dont give a fuck!

Sweden isn't generally renowned for its rebellious streak. How did you find growing up different in such a straight place?

My life has been messed up ever since birth, or at least my mind. Sweden is boring and only sees with closed eyes.

How do your family get on with your music and your alter-ego?

They are very supportive. I always do what I want, but never hurt anyone.

People are likening you to Miley Cyrus, how does that make you feel?

Weird, but I guess that's a compliment??

What can we expect from your debut album?

Your face is gonna melt!

We hear you're popping your London gig cherry in Hoxton. Are your live performances as outrageous as your songs suggest?

No, I'm really not a stage person. I think it feels a bit weird but someday I'll get over it. I'm {gonna} play it cool in London and then after I'll get fucked up with a fan.

Love you xx
