Besides plugging her upcoming English-language album and announcing that Korean makeup is the best in all of Asia, the 23-year-old also put the rumours to rest that 2NE1 are breaking up due to her burgeoning solo career.
"That’s not true!" she said when asked if 2NE1 were headed for splitsville. "We just finished our tour and everybody gets to take a break now. It’s just I don’t get a break. [Laughs.]"
As for her American debut, CL says that we can expect two things: good music, and the same cool style that we all love from her K-pop career.
"I feel like it’s all about good music at the end of the day. It’s not like I’m a rookie—I have been doing this for a long time in Asia. It’s just a new market. I have to have good music, so I’m just focusing on that."
"Well, you know my image when I was in 2NE1. And I’m not going to change that," she said when asked if she was planning to sex things up for the States. "I’m not against being beautiful or sexy or anything, but it’s just I have this—I don’t know how to say it—but I have this “cool” image that I want to keep."
CL has reportedly almost wrapped up her solo album and is currently preparing to start filming her music video, so it shouldn't be too long now until we get to hear the first single.
One Texas couple became a meme after they went 18 minutes without shredded cheese on their fajitas. What could be worse?
Karens. Even if you don't know them by name, you know who they are.
Karens have been asking to speak to managers all over American suburbia ever since Kate Gosselin debuted her infamous reverse-mullet on Jon and Kate Plus 8 in 2007. "Karens"—the collective nickname for middle-aged entitled white women who love nothing more than being pains in your ass—have been walking among us for quite some time, but as shelter-in-place orders and mask mandates have taken over the world, the presence of Karens has become even more apparent.
Last weekend, a Karen went viral in a since-deleted Tweet for a reason only Karens would empathize with. Jason Vicknair, a 40-year-old man from Allen, Texas, was just trying to enjoy his first date night out in three months with his wife at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Mi Cocina. Things took a turn for the worse.
Hassle is best known for his European hits Hurtful and Don't Bring Flowers, while Troth has been making his mark as a pop producer since last year, having produced Jennifer Lopez's Worry No More and Kelly Rowland's Pepsi promotional single The Game.
The K-pop superstar has worked with a tonne of different producers for her solo album, including Diplo, Blood Diamonds, hip-hop songwriter Bobby Brackins, and Sean Garrett.
With super manager Scooter Braun behind her, it looks like CL has huge chance of seriously slaying her U.S. debut!
