Yesterday (24th May), LP surprised all her fans by posting a tweet saying, that in a few hours she will do an AMA (short for ‘ask me anything’) on Reddit hosted by Outside Lands festival she will play on August 10. Since I was totally new to this, it took me a while to get all the facts straight, but shortly I was all set and the wait began. While my question was missed by LP, she did gave some brilliant responses to other users. I will quote most of the Q & A here. LP’s answer are under LPonReddit
. Whole Q & A is available to view on Reddit, click here
Let’s start with Bekki who posted possibly two of my favourite questions last night.
spookymilner: Hi LP!! Sending love from the wearelp.UK tribe 😉
My question is, is being an awesome rockstar exactly as you expected it to be when you wanted to be an awesome rockstar?? 😊 Looking forward to the new album and the date at Somerset House – on my birthday omg. 😍🎂
LPonReddit: Haha : ) Good question.
Thanks for the moniker. I don’t know about all that but I do love getting to travel and see my fans and perform live for you guys so it’s an honor and i’m lucky… thank you! See you at Somerset House. And Happy Early Birthday!
spookymilner: Just one more…
Is it… “Dyings so rock and roll” ”
” Dime store rock and roll”
I’m sure you know what song!! I need to know its driving.me.mad. 😂
[Bekki asks about ‘Death Valley song, in a booklet you can read: Dying’ so rock & roll, but when LP sings, the lyrics clearly sound different, and it turns out…]
LPonReddit: it’s “dime store rock and roll” but in my first draft of writing that song I wrote “dinosaur rock and roll” which I almost wish I kept.
What do we know about new album & possible single release? Also when is the wedding?
nkukulskalp: Hi LP! I would like to ask about your new album, maybe you will reveal more details to us? We are all very curious and are waiting impatiently 🙂 Thank you in advance!
LPonReddit: I’m writing a lot of songs now and feeling very inspired. I hope you guys like it, I really think you will.
lp_serbia: Do you plan to release “Dead Town” on some future album, or maybe just studio version of song for us who are in love with song? 🙂 Can’t wait for you to play in Novi Sad, Serbia! 😉
LPonReddit: You know what? We might actually put it on the record… we’ll see once I finish writing all the new songs. I can’t wait to play in Serbia, i’ve never been!
clagos63: LP! When can we expect to see a single released?
LPonReddit: Soon! It’s worth the wait : )
always_lp: Is it known the exact date the new album will come out and when are you planning to get married with Lauren? Love you so much queen😍😍😍
LPonReddit: I’m working on finishing the album now… it will be out late this year/early next year… can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Lauren and I haven’t set an official wedding date just yet.. we’ve both been so busy!
LpxLaurenHungary: Hiiii! When are you and Lauren planning to get married? Love you♥️
LPonReddit: Soon! Love you too!
What happens to fans’ gifts?
supportinglaura_: Heyy LP Do you keep your fans gifts ? do they have a special section ? Btw I love you so much ❤
LPonReddit: Yes I do keep the gifts. They are starting to fill up a storage space at my house – i’m starting to figure out where I can put them after this once it’s filled.
Lenakozik: Hi, dear LP! Just so much interested if you liked my present -the clock with the Beatles? I saw many videos, where you were unpacking the presents, but did not see mine… I gave it to you at the concert in Moscow,Crocus:) Will be glad to see you this summer. I am going to Italy specially for your concert, as I did in the previous year:) thank you for the answer in advance! Love you
LPonReddit: Yes!!! I love it. It will be going up in my studio back in LA. Thank you so much for it, it was so thoughtful. See you in Italy!
How LP feels about her fans?
sukirdar: How do you think and feel about your fans?
LPonReddit: I love them. They’re the most important thing in all of this and I feel thankful to have them. I enjoy hearing and seeing the impact of my work and it’s the best part of everything.
Lpeople_italia: Your fans feel one with you, soul, heart. How does this make you feel?
LPonReddit: It makes me feel incredible. I feel responsible for peoples hearts now and that’s wild to me but i’m just going to keep doing what got me here and make music i feel proud of.
Turkey got some lovin’ & Mexico too!
sukirdar: What do you think about Turkey? How did you feel when you got there?
LPonReddit: I was overwhelmed by how amazing and sweet people were. They were so passionate and awesome. Food was incredible.
supportinglaura_: Do you like Turkish coffee Boo Boo ?
LPonReddit: Oh I love it! It can be a little sweet for my taste but its fantastic.
sweetintihar: Will you come to Mexico City someday? ☹️
LPonReddit: I love Mexico City so much. I’ve been there a few times and I even performed in 2012 at the Corona Music Festival there. Hope to be back soon!
Poland got some hope for a concert…, France not so much…
fados_pl: Hi LP from Poland! Please tell us when do you come to us? 🙂
LPonReddit: Hi Poland! I hope to be there soon, hopefully this year. I might be there in August.
LPINSPIRATION: Hi LP. I’m Céline of the french fan club, LP Inspiration. We miss you so much here, in France. Do you plan to perform in France this summer ? Thank you for your answer 😍
LPonReddit: Hi Celine! I don’t have anything planned for France this summer but you never know.. sometimes shows are added last minute! Hope to see you guys soon. Sending my love. LP
How LP felt about Coachella?
Nqoba4: How did you like playing at Coachella? That’s where I first found you.
LPonReddit: Oh wow cool! Coachella is legendary and I was stoked to be asked to play. Glad you came to the show!
Why LP visited Iceland? That’s still unkown, possibly shooting video to the new single that will promote her next record, but LP (for now) keeps us in the dark
sukirdar: What did you do in Iceland? Did you shoot a clip for the new album? Thanks for answering from now 😍😍❤
LPonReddit: What happens in Iceland stays in Iceland : )
What to do to make your hair like LP’s?
lpmypower: Hi dear BooBoo! I’m Emilia (your biggest fan from Azerbaijan) How are you? Hope you’re great!😄 How do you care of your hair? I ask because I have curly hair myself and I have no idea how to look after them. Thanks you baby in advance. ly ❤
LPonReddit: Hi Emilia boo boo!
I use gel on my hair when its wet, and then pomade on it after its dry. Then I sleep on it and it looks even better to me! lol
And some other great Q & A’s.
hbirdgirl: Hi LP, first I’m going to gush: you’re my favorite singer, hands down. I’m in Seattle and unfortunately can’t make it down to SF, but I loved seeing you at Summer Camp last year (even though it was super short) and your show up here on Valentine’s Day 💟 my girlfriend and I splurged on table tickets and it was an amazing night. You’ve been part of the soundtrack of our relationship. She’s my Levitator.
Some questions: What’s your favorite song of yours? What’s your favorite cover to sing? Who are you listening to right now?
LPonReddit: Oh my god I love that… it makes everything worthwhile, always. Sending love to you and your girlfriend.
My favorite song of mine… I tend to get into different songs at different times. I’m really into “Girls Go Wild” right now and “When We’re High”. My favorite cover to sing is almost anything by Led Zeppelin and Jeff Buckley. Right now i’m listening to Courtney Barnett, Florence and the Machine’s new music and Pond and some Velvet Underground.
MadClaus: Hi LP, What is your favorite place in the world???
LPonReddit: I’m pretty in love with all of Europe… i’ve been enjoying relaxing in Athens, I love Paris, Rome… quite honestly, everywhere in Europe is incredible to me and my favorites always change. I tend to favor any place that’s warm : )
wafflemaker44: Who would win in a straight up bar brawl (both in their prime) Jagger or Bowie?
LPonReddit: Jagger for sure. He was running 10 miles a day before shows in the 70s.
magali_1976: Hi LP. Before what type of public do you prefer to play in front: an audience that is already fan of your songs ; an audience that know you less and that you will have to conquer ?
LPonReddit: I like both. Both are stimulating in their own way. I think its always a challenge and fun to start a show off and see people being won over but I think ultimately there is nothing like a warm reception from people that know your songs. A person singing your songs back at you has to be one of the coolest things ever.
_belief: Hello!! I’ve been a huge fan ever since “Into the Wild” crept into my suggested songs on Spotify a few years ago and it was a dream come true to finally see you perform at Coachella this year, you’re an amazing artist!
My question is if you’ve ever thought about a longer narrative work like a musical or a concept album?
LPonReddit: Totally. I have an idea for an opera, like a rock opera of sorts and i hope that in the next few years maybe i’ll have time to do something like that.
LpxLaurenHungary: I was wondering if the song called Magic is a new song or an older one. Is it featured in any of your albums? Or maybe it will be in the next one? And alsooo are you planning to meet any fans, when you come to Hungary? I would love to meet you♥️
It’s an older song – it was a contender for the Forever For Now album. I’ll be in Hungary on July 24th! Hope to see you.
lpfrance: What do you do with your free time on a tour ? 🙂
LPonReddit: I do yoga, I read, and I hang out with my best friends, my band!
And finally, what would LP do, if she wouldn’t became a musician?
Blz_kpkp: If you weren’t a musician, what would you do boo boo? 💕
LPonReddit: I would probably be a doctor or therapist.
I think it’s safe to say, that we are all happy that LP sticked with her calling and sings for us her amazing songs. Whole Q & A lasted almost entire hour, LP thanked everyone who participated by saying:
LPonReddit: Thanks everyone for chatting with me… I really enjoyed your questions. See you guys soon!
And afterwards she was back in her LA studio, working on new songs with her friends, Nate Campany & Mike Del Rio.
