Happy. Sexy. Fun.
I caught up with Amanda Lepore to talk about her latest release, Too Drunk To Fuck. The track features on her EP, Lepore.
Too Drunk To Fuck was written for you by Nervo — was it a track that you connected with immediately?
I thought it was great, and couldn’t wait to get into the studio to record it. Nervo originally wrote the song for themselves as a pop song, but we grabbed it and tailored it for me. It took a few attempts before we got it just right.
Kisses to my vocal producer Ted Ottaviano, and music collaborator RedTop, who transformed the song into what we hear now.
Who are some of your music heroes and inspirations?
David Bowie. His music and style were always ahead of the time.
You’ve been one of the stars of New York’s nightlife for a number of years now — what are some of the main changes in the city’s nightlife that you’ve seen over the years?
The club kids want to come out, show off their unique style, have fun and be themselves. I don’t think that has changed much through the years.
What makes a great night out for you?
Great music, fun crowd, and sexy boys.
If someone was visiting NYC and wanted a big night out, what advice or guidance would you give them?
I would tell them to come to whatever party I am working that night!
What do you hope that people feel when listening to your music?
Happy, sexy, fun — I hope people are having a great time.
