Charlie XCX is doing better than before — here and on other levels.

I think this album has a great soundtrack for parties. “
Before the end of his tour, Charlie is celebrating Crush With new collaborations. He is releasing his music at a Doritos concert on June 23, 2022, featuring a virtual performance.

Now more than ever, I think it’s really great that teams exist.

At the party
“Community places and parties are places where people come together to sing loudly and to dance and celebrate. Now much more than before, I think the parties are really great Exists. My show is kind of like a party. They gig, but they kind of for a season. It feels more post-epidemic than ever before. So it’s really great and something that I’m very grateful to have in my life. “
In festival fashion
“If I attend a festival, I keep the makeup simple. I’m not one for glittering and sticking things on my face. I like to keep it chic. Maybe just a glossy lid and a natural lip, and then just sweat and go party and have fun. I think British and UK festivals are very muddy and rainy, so we always say Wellington boots are essential. Not sure if you actually need them for many festivals in the United States. So in that case, I would say a really sturdy, good shoulder bag or left bag. You’re not talking [Americans] Who calls Fanny Pack? I think you, yes. One of my favorite brands right now is Mark Jacobs’ new line, Heaven. I just like the nice vintage fun t-shirt. ”
I have a really unique and good connection with my fanbase.
In collaboration with Seventeen Vernon
“I love everyone I cooperate with, otherwise I would not have cooperated with them. But I think the Vernon and AG Cook Colab remix in “Beg for You” was particularly unique because it came from Twitter and it happened really fast. I think people started talking online, and it made it clear that they wanted to collaborate. I saw tweets and interview snippets where he talked about my music and myself, which I thought was really sweet and clearly honored that he was in my music. So I felt like it was a long shot when I actually arrived. I think he killed the verse completely. I am very happy that cooperation exists. ”
On his fans
“They are definitely fun and funny. And I love it so much [Charli XCX] There are meme accounts that exist. I like the things they post. I’ve been re-posting them a lot of the time and that’s great. I have a really unique and good connection with my fanbase. I really feel like we got each other and I feel very supported by them. They are great, and they have great taste. “
On performing upside down
“It simply came to our notice then. It’s a very brief presence for me, and I’m doing a song of my own, and I’m collaborating with one of the other artists on the bill. You’ll have to wait and see who will tune in to the original show on June 23rd. But it’s very quiet and it’s very iconic. The whole thing is going to be really fun and just really different because we’re not performing on a stage. We’re performing upside-down, a completely different setting from a typical show. So yes, everyone should check out, and to get a ticket, you just have to go and grab a bag Stranger Things Doritos has a little virtual ticket there. And then you can actually come to the show, which will be super hot. ”
