Interview: Plaaastic aka GG
What is life like in Singapore and do you like it more than Vietnam?
Life in Singapore is always spinning around. There is always [really] hot weather and [really] cold people. I don’t really like it here, Vietnam, or more in particular, Hanoi, where I am from is always the best. In Singapore, I am so bored always with nothing to do, I just couldn’t fit in. People in Hanoi are so different. They are the craziest, no boundaries are found there, only chaos, and I know that’s where I will always belong. There is one thing, but one very important thing that makes Singapore better than Hanoi though, and that is the fashion scene. I love the scene here, and the international environment that I can get in. In Singapore everything is available and the people don’t give a damn about [what] you look like. I hate the look of me in Vietnam, wearing the helmet for motorbike and being stared at all day long because i look different.
What are some of your favorite fashion brands at the moment?
Favorite brand at the moment is definitely Somewhere Nowhere, I just did a lookbook shoot for them and they are literally the shit. Unif is another of my all time faves. Some other shops that I just love to wear are LuncchB0xx, Main Frame, O-mighty, and Nikki Lipstick.
Who are some of your favorite musical artists?
Wow there are so many of them I can’t name it all! I listen to anything, so my favs are from everywhere! “Dragons” by Princess Nokia has been stuck in my head all day. I recently watched Mykki Blanko live in hanoi and he was thebomb.com. Lana is my queennn
No way Princess Nokia is the shit 💖🌸 How do you keep your look and style fresh and updated? Do you think of it as “updated”?
Through Tumblr and Instagram. Basically, everything great in the world is now on Instagram. If it is not, it is probably not that great lol . And I don’t think of it as an “update”, because when I take the information in, the old ones are not outdated and just getting replaced that easy. I think of those things as “influences”, but it is depending on me whether I let them influence me or not.
Of course I like to keep my self looking fresh always. I never ever want to be that person who stuck with one thing because it looks good on them. I want to be dramatic, I want to wake up everyday and be unable to recognize that face in the mirror. So I will wear anything I want, just like I do whatever I want!!
What is it like having 13k followers on Instagram? Do you think of your followers as your fan base?
It feels kind of funny really. “IRL People” know me as a dancer, and this part of me is hidden away on the Internet. For real, no close friends of mine even follow me on my Insta. But it is great that I have this opportunity to grow, and as the people finding out about me, I will be finding myself as well. I love that I have a land where I can be real and talk to the people who are probably at the other side of the earth but care about the same things that I do.
I don’t think of my followers are my fan base, because I follow them a lot personally as well, and I love talking to my followers. They are more like my friends who I just haven’t met yet. I love my followers on Instagram, when I am down they are there, when I am happy they are cheering for me.. a lot of opportunity would not be this open door for me without my followers, so I really appreciate it. 😍
Lastly, if you had to be any famous movie star who would you be and why? <3
I think I will be James Franco. Putting nudes on the net, being random, flirting with an underage girl, modeling Gucci, and let’s not even start about Freaks and Greeks omg 💕
