"This is my first Coachella and I'm surprised it's even hotter than Big Day Out in Australia!," Kate Nash told us backstage by her trailer Saturday afternoon. "It's so L.A. here, but you gotta love it even if it's not your thing. It's just funny." Still glowing from her Saturday afternoon show, she had one thing on her mind: Prince.
If I Had Five Minutes with Prince:
"I'd want to tell him that I want to write a song together. I'd want to talk about emotions. I think I'd confess so much to Prince. I'd be like hey, '˜This is my life. This is what I'm sad about. This is the bad shit that happened.' And, I think he'd be like, 'ok, look baby"' it would be amazing! I think Prince would understand. He's emotionally tuned into things."
Best Way to Deal with Onstage Sweat:
"I like sweating onstage because I feel like if you don't sweat onstage, you didn't work hard enough."
Best Coachella Drink:
"Vodka and orange so far. It's refreshing."
Black Kids, Cool Kids, or Cold War Kids?
"Black Kids. They are amazing. They came on my tour. I love them and they are my friends. They are so fun and nice and just wicked"
Most Looking Forward To Seeing:
"Prince, of course!"
