Eddy De Pretto
When did you discover your artistic side?
When I was 11 in my bedroom, with my neighbour, singing a Spice Girls’ song, preparing the next show in my living room, with only our mums in the audience
Did you always want to be a singer?
I was really excited to go on stage for a long time. This is the best emotion I can feel in my life. So I would never want to stop.
How old were you when you discovered your impeccable vocals?
Impeccable is for Mariah Carey only :) But I felt very happy the day I managed to sing « I believe I can fly ».
How does your music differ from other tracks?
I think the most important thing in my music is what I’m talking about : gender, parties, sexualities, masks, drugs and others stuff about society. I’m trying to disturb stereotypes.
Are you an outgoing person when off-stage?
It depends if I feel at ease with people around me. If it’s a familiar situation, I feel free and comfortable, and I can be provocative. ;)
How do you calm your nerves before performing on stage?
This is the worst and best moment at the same time. I need to stay backstage to focus and control all my energies to create one to share.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
In the bed of Vincent Desiderio, next to Kanye West, Rihanna, Anna Wintour and Donald Trump.
