What was the first record you ever bought with your own money?:
Matrix soundtrack. It was "Parental Advisory," so I had to have an older friend buy it for me. I was obsessed with the song "Clubbed to Death" by Rob Dougan. Now that I think about it, I think I was in fifth or sixth grade. Yeah, I was an intense kid.
How many unread emails or texts currently fill your inbox?:
Ha! Tonight, 197 unread e-mails and 48 unread texts. I know, I know, I'm behind.
If your life were a movie, which songs would be on the soundtrack?:
"Cover Me Up" by Jason Isbell and "Over My Head" by Alabama Shakes.
The lyrics, the tempo … they just fit every situation of my life. Those songs are perfect anytime of day.
What brand of jeans do you wear?:
I wear dresses — preferably dresses by Johnny Was, Biya, and Free People. But, let's be honest: I shop at Goodwill.
What's your go-to karaoke tune?:
If I did karaoke, it'd be Beyoncé "Rocket!"
If you were a liquor, what would you be?
Weekdays: A glass of red wine or some Jameson neat!
Weekends: Cachaca. Nothing like a spicy caparhinia!
Poehler or Schumer?
Chocolate or vanilla?
Blues or bluegrass?
