Upcoming issue of V Magazine is featuring our favorite redhead supermodel turned singer Karen Elson portrayed by Glen Luchford and talks with Karen about her debut album (which we mentioned few weeks ago).
She sang in the choir, and, at 14, even joined (albeit briefly) her school’s newly founded, come-one, come-all student Salsa band. “It was all the kids who’d been studying music since, like, age 4, and then I walk in like, ‘Yeah! I’m into this!’ It lasted maybe no more than a month,” Elson laughs. “But it was fun. I felt different. I wanted to do something different.” Stuck in Oldham, however, she saw no reason to pursue it. “Where I grew up, there weren’t many people who managed to break out of the sleepy English mold. So I don’t think I would have had the motivation. I just didn’t have it in me.” – Karen Elson for V Magazine #65
