If you wondered what the hell happened to Juliette Lewis with her last video the adorable and ever so sweet Uh Huh, that saw her dancing around with balloons, then fear not, your tough girl is back in the new video for Terra Incognita!
Juliette says “I want to be the f—ing antithesis to all the f—ing pop tarts, to Lady Gaga and somebody who works with a pound of makeup and the costumes,” she says. “Yeah, I work with costumes, but it should be raw. I like the idea of instead of promoting sex, you’re promoting strength and vitality.” What a breathe of fresh air she is!
Here is the just released artwork for the new Scissor Sisters single Any Which Way (woohoo great single choice!) The single is dropping September 20th and more details are coming soon! In the meantime, check out the August news video from the band, it features Hard Candy favorites Kylie Minogue, Juliette Lewis and erm Jane Fonda. This seriously had me dying on Monday morning so check it out!
Check out the recently debuted video for Uh Huh from one of my favorite albums of last year Terra Incognita by Juliette Lewis directed by her brother. She checks the rock chick at the door and its all cute and playful in this one. I’m loving her rocking the Pretenders shirt and the concert footage mixed in! If you missed our interview with Juliette last year check it out here!
Still on a high from the amazing interview with JULIETTE LEWIS, I headed down to the main floor to check out her performance. After seeing her at Summerstage In NYC this summer, I was excited to see her do a full set and she did not disappoint! Juliette has such an phenomenal energy which really lends itself to performing on stage. Her energy never drops and you can tell she pours her soul into each and every song.
Some of the highlights of the show for me were; an outstanding performance of one of my favorite tracks from Terra Incognita, “Suicide Dive Bombers” in which Juliette lept over the barrier diving into an excited crowd. They appeared to DROP her but picked her up and she carried right on! An energetic performance of “Terra Incognita,” I loved the conga player! and “Pray For The Band Latoya” which is one of my personal favorite songs.
She also played many of my favorite Licks numbers including “Pray For The Band Latoya” as i mentioned, “You’re Speaking My Language” and she came back on stage to end the show perfectly with an encore of “Hot Kiss,” with headdress (just as Matt was hoping for!)
As always stay tuned to our YouTube Channel for all the videos and check Flickr for all the pictures!
“Hard Candy! If It Ain’t Hard, It Ain’t Good!” Juliette Lewis
Saturday night Matt and I excitedly rushed to the Fillmore Irving Plaza here in NYC, to chat withJULIETTE LEWISbefore she hit the stage. Juliette spoke with us about her music and fashion influences, the transition from The Licks to The New Romantiques, and the fabulous new record Terra Incognita.
It was fantastic chatting with Juliette, who has such an enigmatic personality! We loved hearing about her passion for music and evolution as a musician. There was much more we wanted to ask her we could have gone all night, but she had a show to do! Alas, we could not get the Carla Tate out of her – hopefully someday Juliette, someday!
Our first *ever* video interview is below. Stay tuned to Hard Candy for the concert review loaded with pics and videos! – Camille
Big thanks (and high fives!) to Hannah from Sheena Beaston who filmed our interview. She also got the chance to talk to Juliette, so check out her interview here!
