Recently, Donovan and I had the pleasure of sitting down with multi-platinum record selling, rock singer, writer, poet, motivational speaker and actress,Bif Naked . It was such a beautiful day here in Vancouver, so with my dogs Max & Lucy, and her dog Nicklas, we decided to venture to the park and chat about all sorts of good stuff.
Bif is currently writing a memoir about her life story, which by the way is extremely fascinating. She was born in India, to teenaged American parents attending private school and was subsequently adopted by American missionaries. That’s a story in itself! She has been in the music industry for quite some time and has been very successful, as you know, with hits such as “I Love Myself Today,” and “Tango Shoes“. In 2007, she married her hubby, but in 2008 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to, of course, stop touring as a result. She underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy and conquered it, thank goodness.
In the interview, we talk about her book, her battle with cancer, and an upcoming “secret album” that she had been working on, which she describes as “hot pants on a speaker with your top off”. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun and she is SO excited to release it. We also talk about how the music industry has changed since she started out, as well as all of the tragic gay teen suicides that have been going on.
Man I love her! Thanks Biffy! xoxo
