At a mere 16, Sofia Richie is arguably already in the famous lyrics of her father, Three Times A Lady. She’s not only following in his footsteps by starting to cultivate her singing career, but has also been making a real splash in the world of fashion and modeling. She chats to Fault about her recent signing and what it’s like to be a model, her love of fashion design and where it came from, and also what the future might hold. Full of life, this girl knows what she wants and has a pretty good idea about how she’s going to get it.

Take a peek inside FAULT Issue 21 where we chat to the rising model about her future, fears and favourite parts about the industry she is determined to crack.

FAULT: So, you’ve recently been signed to Select Model Management, are you enjoying being a model?

Sofia Richie: Yeah I love it, it’s definitely different to anything I’ve ever done in my life, but I really enjoy it and I’m so excited about what’s coming up.

Great, what would you say your favourite part about being a model is?

Honestly I just love wearing all the different clothes I’m put in, so mainly everything about the fashion part of the job.

sofia-richie-2

It’s great that you say you want to be taken seriously in the fashion industry – does it ever upset you if other people, even your colleagues, say that people who come from a place within the public eye have it much easier as a model?

It doesn’t really upset me because it’s obviously their problem if people think we’re not working to get where we are today. It honestly just makes me want to work even harder and be more successful, because at the end of the day we are certainly working hard whether people realise or not.

What’s your dream for 10 years time? Where do you want to be?

I want to work towards my own fashion line and doing collaborations with fashion lines; I’m really focused on my fashion and modeling right now.

sofia-richie-

Is fashion design something you’ve always been interested in?

Yeah, I’ve always been super interested. When I was younger my parents bought me this little sketch book with blank girls in it so you can draw clothes on them. That’s something I started out doing a long time ago, and it’s how I think I became seriously interested in fashion by just being creative with it.

Finally, what is your FAULT?

I’m very harsh on myself. I’m critical and judgmental of myself when it comes to everything I do.

Lights of Soho brings Nevada’s Black Rock Desert into the heart of London through The Art Of Burning Man.

Temple-of-Whollyness-by-Fleishman,-Clearwater,-Barron

Lights of Soho is London’s latest gallery and member’s club addition that’s got everyone talking. Embracing Soho’s history, the space once known as a porn shop (with a secret basement that previously hosted a brothel nonetheless) now operates as a cultural hub for creative neon and light art. Their acclaimed premiere exhibition, City Lights, included works from reputable light art artists alongside the up and coming, showcasing the likes of Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Robert Montgomery and many more.

For the second time round, Lights of Soho sets Brewer street ablaze with a new wave of artwork entitled The Art of Burning Man, an homage to the vibrant art and culture of the festival.

Interface---Shuster-&-Moseley-9

If you’re not a fan of spending 7 days in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, this exhibition is pretty much the embodiment of everything that Burning Man stands for. It’s a place for art, self-expression and self-reliance. Although it’s nothing quite like the real deal, The Art of Burning Man is as close as you get to the full experience, except that you’re in a confined space with air conditioning and a drink in your hand.

For the first time in the history of the festival, the artworks are taken out of the festival’s context and put on display for everyone to see. Photographer NK Guy has been documenting the show ever since it’s early days in 1998 to its contemporary life in 2014 and he’s now releasing it to the public through his new book, The Art of Burning Man, published by Taschen.

CS-(Clock-Ship)-Tere,-2013-Artist-Andy-Tibbetts

The gallery showcased some of his iconic prints alongside site-specific installations from artist duo Shuster + Moseley. Although the sculptures were made with Burning Man in thought, they’re slightly more delicate in nature than what you’d usually see on the festival’s site. You’ve got tiny glass sculptures hanging from the ceiling that manipulate natural and artificial light alongside a magnificent light installation that unifies geometry, lights and perceptual elements. It’s quite a visual treat.

Lights of Soho provided another immersive experience through The Art of Burning Man and their events promise to be getting bigger and better. The exhibition will be running on Brewer Street from the 24th of July until September 10th and, if you feel like grabbing a copy of NK Guy’s The Art of Burning Man, rest assured that it’s available for purchase at the gallery.

With a career spanning almost 15 years and a discography that includes six chart-topping albums, Fall Out Boy is a band that’s deeply rooted in the American consciousness. Some fans have grown up with the band and witnessed FOB’s constantly evolving sound while never missing a beat. Others are new fans, brought into the FOB fold via their 2013 comeback album ‘Save Rock and Roll’. At the helm of the band is lyricist/vocalist/bassist Pete Wentz, whose personal life at times has eclipsed his musical one. With the release of FOB’s sixth studio album American ‘Beauty/American Psycho’ and preparations for an upcoming Boys of Zummer tour with Wiz Khalifa, it seems that Pete is back on top and ready to charge full steam ahead. We had a chance to chat with Pete about FOB’s new album, their upcoming tour, and much more.

 

What’s one piece of advice you’d impart to aspiring musicians?

I’d say do it because you love it. Doing it to get famous or make money – there’s much easier roads to get those things. I think music can be really cathartic and an amazing experience but you gotta do it for the right reasons.
2

What’s your current favourite TV show?

My favourite TV show is probably ‘Game of Thrones’ but they don’t have anyone on there with accents like mine on there. I don’t think I would watch it if I was on it [laughs].

 

How would you say your songwriting and music in general has evolved over the last six albums? Do you find it much easier or more difficult to write tunes at this point?

Sometimes we write pretty well together and it flows easily and sometimes it takes a little bit more time. It’s never not been that way. Everyone has families and different things in their lives that we all have to work around. That way logistically there’s more to deal with.

1

Can you tell me more about the inspiration behind ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’?

We’re a band that has an interesting demographic of fans. We have a good group of fans that care about the album, packaging and all that goes with it so it’s important for us to deliver to that. There’s also something to be said about a body of work where it’s a snapshot of that moment in time. I think that ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ is a take on a modern love story. It’s the idea that we kind of all have these smartphone and social media lives but we’re still disconnected and brightly lit by computer screens.

Lion Babe Exclusive Interview/Photoshoot with FAULT Magazine

Lion Babe are an act that seemed to appear overnight, yet had everyone talking. Born in New York, as the lovechild of singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey, and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman, they mix a spectrum of sounds, and stunning visuals, influenced by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest and Sergeant Pepper-era Beatles. With a fresh new music video for ‘Impossible‘ released today, an album later this year and a headline show at Heaven on November 24th, we sat down with the electric duo to find out more! 

Who/what are your main influences?

Jilian: Musically I think we both have an eclectic taste.  We’re both influenced by soul music and a lot of the stuff going on in the late 50s to 70s era. One of my favourite artists and performers is Josephine Baker. Our influences are always changing but there is definitely a strong influence from that era. Also, I use Tumblr loads so a lot of times that has introduced me to people that I look at as inspiring. Whether that’s based on their style or the quotes they have.

How do you incorporate these influences into your own music?

Lucas: We are just listening to loads of records and taking elements – like “oh I like that guitar” etc. We’ll either just do an actual sample or maybe listen to those records the day before we go to the studio and it usually just comes out. But, always with a new twist to it. Whether it’s something more futuristic, an electronic thing, or you know, just doing it a little differently than they probably would have back then.

How important are visuals to you?

Lucas: It is really important. It is the other half to our whole. For us, it has always been multimedia, in the sense that we want there to be two sides – whether that is in our videos or our shows.

Jilian: I come from a performance background [as the daughter of Vanessa Williams] and performance art was what I was doing before I met Lucas. I could never be just singing as I think visually. When we are writing songs, for me, it happens in unison. That’s my way of bringing to our world what I have been trained to do my whole life.

Lucas, before Lion Babe you were producing music as Astro Raw. How is the writing process now you work as part of a duo?

Lucas: I love it. It is so nice to have collaboration. When you are making beats by yourself it is totally cool because you’ve got your own vibe, but, as a duo we can turn it into something more than a beat and transform it into a song. Jilian is a naturally awesome song writer. The first time we ever really worked on something together it felt really good. When two brains are working on something twice as much happens. Sometimes we collaborate with another artist or producer and it’s amazing because three times as much is happening. It’s just more fun than being by yourself all the time [laughs].

Black leather peplum skirt : Guess

At the moment you are touring around the UK – how has that been?

Jilian: Last night we played in Manchester, at the Ruby Lounge, and it was a lot of fun because the crowd were so into it. It was so funny because people seemed to know the lyrics to new songs, and I have no idea how they know but they just know! [laughs] Maybe we have spies in the studio!

unnamed-7

Leather shirt : AG
Tailored navy trousers : Fillipa k

You are both from New York, what would you say were the main differences between the American and British music scenes?

Jilian: There is definitely a difference in the pacing of things. Things move faster here. The fact that Lion Babe is being played on the radio in the UK now is pretty exciting. When we first started we never thought our songs were going to be played on the radio. It is pretty cool to know that a country is embracing your sound and helping people discover you.

Lion Babe has been collaborating with some big names (Pharrell, Mark Ronson etc.) who have strong recognisable styles. Did you ever worry that your own developing sound would be overlooked?

Lucas: Not really because the process of how these records were made involved so much conversation between us and them. With Pharrell we had a two day writing session with him in Miami. It was so surreal and exciting, especially for it to happen so early on for Lion Babe. He would be like ‘put together a riff and I’ll be back in two hours’. Then he’d come back and we would work out a rough song which we would then take back to New York add other elements to. It is a mix of flavours- you can hear Pharrell, but in the end it is definitely Lion Babe.

unnamed

What is your FAULT?

Jilian: I hate to admit this, but I am not the best at time management. Marilyn Monroe was also a Gemini and she had the same issue!

Lucas:
Just management in general (laughs)

How did Billie Piper get to where she is today; starring in Showtime’s high-budget  horror Penny Dreadful with top names in the industry? FAULT talks pop beginnings, wild teenage years and how acting was always the plan. It feels like only yesterday we were putting on our best pair of cargo trousers and singing ‘Because We Want To’ into our hair brushes but Billie Piper, the teenage pop princess, grew up into one of British television’s favourite actresses. With two platinum albums, 70 award wins and nominations and two children already in the bag by 32, is she a go-getting, force to be reckoned with? No, says Billie, she’s just restless.

FAULT Issue 21 features the star on our internal Style cover and we chat Penny Dreadful, upcoming movies and what it takes to go from teen POP-star to simply a popular culture icon – Only available in Issue 21!

What was the hardest thing about becoming famous at such a young age?

Never being able to just walk around normally. And when you’re a pop star you’re always on duty. You’re suddenly a role model even though you don’t start out with ambitions of being a role model and also you’re a fallible mess yourself. So trying to keep some resemblance of togetherness and good behavior was just shit as a teenager.

Mostly that you couldn’t walk anywhere without people wanting pictures and autographs and I found that so suffocating. We all did at that time. I went out with Rich from Five and we used to just sit in our flat for days, if we weren’t working, and never leave. It made you really reclusive. That’s the stuff I hated.

What have been some of your favourite acting projects?

I love them all to be honest. I’d say I’ve had some of my best times doing plays. I’ll always

have an enormous soft spot for Dr Who. That was a gift as a job and everyone was so nice which is rare. I loved Secret Diary because it was mad and loose and other-worldly.

You’re playing Lily Frankenstein in Penny Dreadful which is out at the moment. It’s a bit similar to Dr Who with its supernatural elements. Is that something you enjoy?

It’s funny that I get cast in things like that, it’s either prostitutes or time travelers!

Is that something you would advise your children on?

Yeah, I think I’d be quite firm about it. I don’t know that I’d let my children get involved in that world until they’re about 16 or 17. But who knows?! Because if they were really dedicated and really gun-ho and passionate about it then you just support that but if you’ve got a kid who just wants to be famous I would just totally rule that out.

The Janoskians For FAULT Issue 21 – What it takes to be POPular in the Digital age

 

unnamed

Photography: Leigh Keily
Styling: Vesa Perakyla
Grooming: Daniel Rymer Robinson

We are now well and truly settled into the era of “Online Stars.” Since it’s inception in 2004 and subsequent mass following in the years that followed, YouTube has helped launch the careers for many of today’s notable public figures and celebrities. Enter Janoskians, (Just Another Name Of Silly Kids In Another Nation) were five teenagers from Melbourne who shot to the ever elusive “internet fame” in 2011. After amassing over 1.8  million subscribers, their international following is arguably reminiscent of the 1960’s Beatlesmania.

We chat with one of the first teen sensations of the digital age about what it means to be POPular and how sustainable that popularity can be…

 

FAULT: Do you have a close connection to your fans when you’re performing live?

Janoskians: Yeah. I think it’s because of social media, that’s a way for us to connect with our fans on a personal level. It’s a really cool to connect through Twitter, Instagram, that sort of stuff. It’s a way for us to connect on a personal level. It’s not in your inbox anymore, it’s not checking your mail, you just have to check your phone and start replying to fans. It’s really cool that we’ve managed to do that through social media.

 You released ‘Would you love me’ earlier this year, do you prefer recording? What’s your recording experience like?

Janoskians: I really love getting into the studio and being creative and just having a chill out moment with the boys, sorting out whatever’s on our minds and getting that onto the tracks. I really enjoy that process as well. Getting funny in the studio as well and letting everything out.

When you started on YouTube, did you ever forsee that it would lead into an album and you performing live in front of all your adoring fans worldwide? And not just in your home, but selling out shows in England?

I’d never even imagined us performing a gig at a club in Melbourne. Touring the whole world and performing to all these people is really crazy.
