Charli XCX goes all in on Arvos with Darren Lesaguis

November 6th 2018

  • Charli XCX :: Interview with Darren Lesaguis on Arvos

iconic [ahy-KON-ik] (adjective): Charli XCX’s output in 2018. From ‘1999’ to ‘Girls Night Out’ to ‘Focus’ and ‘5 in the Morning’, the British pop star has delivered bops, slappers, bangers and everything in between as she continues on her quest to marry the worlds of pop and experimental, forward-thinking electronica.

It’s a quest which has brought her to Australia as one of the many big reputations on T. Swift’s Reputation tour. Following her sold-out sideshow at the Metro Theatre, Charli stopped by Arvos with Darren Lesaguis for FBi’s most Millennial™ interview ever.

Hit up the play button to hear them chat about the beauty of being embraced by the queer community, feeling empowered by Troye Sivan’s Bloom and why she felt compelled to show that love back by opening the stage up to members of Sydney’s LGBTQI+ community to perform ‘Boys’ with her.

“I feel like, especially over the past 18 months, that community has really embraced me as an artist and I think it’s nice to give a platform back to that community to come and party and be visible and be on stage with me because I owe them so much”.

Hear her also talk through her unique curatorial approach to pop music, the value of not compromising your art and spilling the deets on some of the scenes left on the cutting room floor of the incredible ‘1999’ vid, which – ICYMI – you can watch here 👇
