5 Questions with Candy Royalle

candyroyalleWhat is your favourite swear word?
Cunt. But I don’t use it to swear. I use it for what its meant for – simply another name by which we call that part of a woman’s body. CUNT. You should say it right now – let it roll around in your mouth for a second. Nice and slow like. C U N T. See? It’s not that bad is it? In fact, it’s rather nice sounding…

What are you wearing?
Acid wash shorts, boy cut underwear in the colour of black, denim shirt (yes, I love double denim), black lace bra. Oh wait. Do you mean what labels am I wearing this season? Was that too much information?

What is love?
The essence of being human. Our single saving grace. It’s what separates us from the monsters we detest (those reflections we abhor). It’s the action of conscious beings. It is a radical act. It is my meaning of life.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Is This Thing On? at the Belvoir. 3/5 stars.

Is your new show going to be any good?
It’s going to be so good, that if you don’t like it, I’ll give you your money back (after costs).
