SDTC: Is being a perfectionist a blessing or a curse?
Natalia: It’s both. It’s absolutely both. It’s just impossible for it not to be. I mean, my album Perfectionist is nothing to do with being perfect. It’s actually about the perfect way to deal with all of the heartbreak and disappointment and flaws and stress and horrible things that generally happen to all of us, it’s unavoidable. It’s a double edged sword. I think it drives you to want an excellent life and to be the best you can be, and it definitely drives me in that way. At the same time, you can become so self-critical, and so self-absorbed, that you often detach yourself and can destroy yourself.
SDTC: What is your live show like?
Natalia: Every night on stage, we make a bit of a party of the show. It’s really wild. My live show’s inspired by Sin City. When I was a little girl, the only thing I really wanted to do when I grew up was to be in a bad b**** girl gang, and we definitely do that onstage. There’s a girl gang in The Warriors called The Lizzies, and even in Pulp Fiction, Uma Thurman’s character, she’s an anti-hero. You want the best for her and you love her as a character, but you definitely know that everything she does is wrong, and I bring that and the party spirit of those feelings into my live show.
