TILT w/ Kid Sister Review and Exclusive Interview!

For weeks we've all been blasting the infectious single "Right Hand Hi," waiting in excitement for Chicago's own electro-rap superwoman, Kid Sister, to grace TILT LA with her presence, as part of the tour for her album, Ultraviolet, which drops November 17. Literally decked out in head-to-toe sequins: a sheer midriff top with sparkly bra, sequined baseball cap, and shiny pants, Kid Sister brought down the house this Saturday with her high-energy performance, even incorporating a stage-dive into the audience! Classy and Sassy! Now that is my kind of badass broad.

Sharing the stage was her brother, J2K , who practically melted the dance floor with Flosstradamus right before. The siblings definitely were on fire that night, making that October evening at the Echoplex a very memorable one. Kid Sister aka Melisa Young, was nice enough to have a girl talk sesh with me where we discussed Betsey Johnson (she liked my Pollys, I loved her huge fish-shaped ring) nails did (naturally) and bonded over everyone's favorite Tejano singer of the 90's (!!!).

AL: So let me see your nails first! Those are so sick!

KS: I lost one! I redid them today. I bought all these stones in Japan. They have the best stones.

AL: Those are definitely Tokyo-style talons on the cover of Ultraviolet. Did you get them done there?

KS: Tokyo, yes!

AL: Where are the best places to get your nails done?

KS: I go to a place in LA and I go to a place in Tokyo. And that's pretty much it.

AL: Which place do you go in LA?

KS: Not telling! The sign isn't even in English so I couldn't even tell you!

AL: Did you and Estelle ever record "Ladies First" (originally by Queen Latifah)?

KS: Yes, did you hear it?

AL: No!

KS: It's not on the album, but me and Estelle did another song called "Step."

AL: I love Queen Latifah so I was excited for it. Is it ever going to come out?

KS: Maybe a B-side or something. Who knows.

AL: Do you know what you will you be for Halloween?

KS: I'm Selena! I forgot to tell the audience I'm Selena! I was testing out my Halloween costume!

AL: Ahh! I was thinking that because once I saw that bra I was like..., Does she love Selenas?


AL: That's amazing!!!

KS: All I need is high heeled boots, I'll be good.

AL: You need to remake "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom!"

KS: Already on it! Already on it!

AL: ::faints::
