Rolling Stone caught up with "Hideaway" singer Kiesza backstage at Governors Ball last weekend and grilled her on who she loves to follow (and chat with) on Twitter:

Fellow Musicians
I follow a lot of musicians. I recently had a Twitter conversation with Bryan Adams. We just started talking, really — mutual admiration. I follow the fake Michael Jackson account, just simply because. I was really excited when Joey Bada$$ first tweeted at me 'cause I was trying to get in touch with him and then that ended up in a studio session.

Terminators
I follow interesting characters. My most recent follow was Arnold Schwarzenegger. I wanted to see what he was like in real life and he's very much like how he is in the movies. He has really great quotes. He always has this really great voice.

Presidents
I like Obama 'cause he just got a Twitter, finally. Very exciting. I think for a president he's pretty funny. 

@Science
I fucking love Science, it's a great blog. It's worth following their Twitter. I follow NASA. I get really excited about their updates.

Elew
There's this piano player called Elew, he's in New York, Eric Lewis is his name and he goes by Elew. And I went to go see him before and he ended up not showing up because I guess the piano was broken or something and we didn't know that. I tweeted at him, "I guess the piano couldn't handle your playing #privateconcertmaybe" and he ended up giving me a private concert.

Friends, Family and Fans
I follow a lot of my friends and family just to keep up with them. I follow a lot of my fans back. So, my Twitter's getting hard to follow people because it's a lot of fans.
