Most of us had heard of her back around 2010 when the number of followers one had became a big deal. Twitter personalities where starting to break into the mainstream, and she was one of the first. But we didn’t know her name. We were told that she was the Canadian housewife with a million Twitter followers who parleyed that into a screenwriting career, had a glamorous life in LA and pissed off a million writers that wondered how she got so lucky.

But the truth was less sensational. It involved hard work, practice and years of writing for little to no money. It wasn’t the American dream I had imagined. Or even cared to.

Now Kelly Oxford is famous, despite what she tells us. She is a New York Times bestselling author, she has a TV deal, a movie deal, she gets to talk to FAULT, and still finds time to annoy the Kardashians and their legions on Twitter: “If you can name 5 Kardashians but can’t name 5 countries in Asia, stick a knife in an electrical socket.”

FAULT: Do you know how the story of you coming out of nowhere came about?

Kelly: The first time I got picked up by the media was a charity event in Los Angeles called ‘Night of 140 Tweets’ at the very beginning of 2010. That was a celebrity event where people would read a Tweet was to raise money for disaster relief in Haiti. I was the only one out of 140 people that wasn’t a celebrity. I was just a writer from Canada. I was a housewife. I was somebody who nobody really knew and I was only invited because people that were involved with this – actors and writers – liked me on Twitter and thought, “if we put her on this it’ll make sense because she’s very popular on Twitter and this is a night of tweeting.” All of a sudden I was part of a group of people when I really wasn’t one of them.

How did it [really] begin for you?

If I had been born in the United States, I’m 100% sure that when I graduated high school I would have moved to Los Angeles and started a normal writing career by becoming an assistant and working my way up the ranks. But I was Canadian. That sort of thing wasn’t an option for me. I could have moved down here and done all that stuff, lots of Canadians have, but I wasn’t ambitious about getting a career. I’d rather have a family and stay at home and pursue my passion. So I just did what I did, which was to just take some writing classes and write things on my Geocity page and just wonder if anybody would read it.

Cash Money/Young Money rapper and entrepreneur Tyga is hard at work perfecting The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, set to drop November 18th. This could explain why, despite numerous efforts to connect with Tyga, he was unavailable to speak with FAULT. Nevertheless, this third studio release seems to be an early 25th birthday present, a passion project that has been gestating since the summer.

Tyga has been steadily rolling out select tracks from the album, including ‘Wait For a Minute’ featuring Justin Bieber and ‘Hookah’ featuring Young Thug. Additionally, Tyga has teamed up with past collaborator Chris Brown for the Fan of a Fan 2 mixtape, the follow-up to the 2010 release that featured ‘Deuces’.

Like any good mini-mogul, the rapper has made efforts to gain inside knowledge of his business ventures. The rapper flew from California to New York City to attend NY Fashion Week, where he made an appearance at Alexander Wang’s Spring 2015 show.

With such a packed schedule, it’s easy to see why Tyga is always on the go. After all, when you’re busy overseeing a fledgling empire, who really has time to make small talk?

Debby Ryan – our Style section cover for FAULT Issue 19

FAULT Issue 19’s Style section cover star Debby Ryan was shot by Brian Ziff and styled by Avo Yermagyan.

Debby Ryan‘s staggering diversity as an artist sits nicely with a very healthy dose of natural talent and her near-zealous work ethic. It is the combination of these factors that marks Debby out as an anomaly in an age when so many of her peers seem content to reach a certain point before resting on their laurels. For Debby, it seems, her work has only just begun.

Ryan’s big break came in 2008 when she landed the role of Bailey on the Disney Channel’s original series ‘The Suite Life on Deck’. She now not only stars in Disney’s smash hit show ‘Jessie’, but has also produced, directed and written for the series.

This Summer the actress released a long-awaited debut album, One, with her band, The Never Ending. Featuring crystal clear vocals from Ryan, the simple, straightforward style with which she has launched her music career away from Disney has seen her gain widespread acclaim from critics and fans alike.

FAULT had the pleasure of spending the day with Debby on our exclusive shoot for Issue 19. We took the opportunity to pinpoint her various inspirations for tracks on her album, her direct involvement with changes to her character on ‘Jessie’ and what lies ahead for the star in the near future.

Production by Zizi Zarkadas + Leah Blewitt

FAULT: You recently released your album One with your band, The Never Ending. How did you came up with your group’s name and how did you and your bandmates meet?

Debby: I was actually working on another music project and started writing a lot of songs with friends. Throughout the process these lyrics and melodies really started to develop as part of the collaboration, all of which really felt like “me” – not to sound cliché [laughs]!

It was definitely a passion project, bringing my songs, words and sounds all together and telling a story. Music to me is something that lasts longer than ourselves. The idea of being a successful musician or artist is really never-ending because you’re always growing and being inspired- so that is how the band name came about.

What’s it been like for you to basically grow up in the public eye? Do you ever get used to fame and to your fans being interested in what you do both on and off the screen?

Well, due to social media, things have changed a lot since I first started. There is definitely way more access to peoples lives. I’m inherently a private person – believe it or not. It’s funny to me what the media focuses on and things that make “the news” – like hair color changes [laughs]! Don’t get me wrong: I am truly blessed and I love my fans – it’s just [that] sometimes the assumptions people, [and] media make about you or [when they think] that they truly know you on a personal level….

Interview by Leah Blewitt

How would you describe you own personal style?

I wear a a lot of black on black and I LOVE vintage. Definitely a laid back, comfortable style but always with a feminine touch. I love mixing and matching, taking basic black jeans and pairing a more casual piece from Topshop with a designer like Balenciaga.

What is your FAULT?

Well, if you asked my friends they will tell you [that] I’m the mom – or act like a mom! So hmm… I’d say taking in strays. I really love animals and just adopted another kitten recently.

I also take in drummers – my dummer is living with us as well [laughs]!

FAULT issue 10 stars Far East Movement release new track: ‘Grimey Thirsty’

Grimey_Thirsty_FEM

Remember when the airwaves were dominated by ‘Like a G6‘? FAULT Issue 10 stars Far East Movement, the group behind the aforementioned 2010 Billboard Hot 100 hit, have just dropped a new song from their upcoming KTown Riot EP.

The track, ‘Grimey Thirsty‘, a trap-heavy party anthem, features a high-energy verse by YG. When asked about the recording process for the song, Far East Movement member Kevin Nish said, “When we were in the studio with Rell [Central-American EDM producer] working on the Murder Was The Bass project, we were just messing around and slowing down all the 150bpm trap tracks we had to 100bpm. The drums snapped in a different way that reminded us of some old school MOP energy that our fans could really rock with.”

The group has started to slowly unveil the tracklist for KTOWN Riot with previous releases such as ‘Bang It To The Curb’ and ‘The Illest’, which featured Riff Raff.

Can’t wait for the full EP? You’re in luck; the wait isn’t too long. KTOWN Riot has an official release date of October 28th. The group is currently on their Rager Nation tour and recently played for eager fans in Australia.
