"[Blondie] was such a great artist to cross over from the punk rock scene into hip-hop. So I could relate a lot with that, just having an eclectic taste in music myself. I even did my hair for a while, which a lot of people didn’t understand. I did dark roots. My hair’s actually ashy blonde, but I wanted there to be more defined roots. It was [an] homage to Debbie Harry. But I wore it to the Teen Choice Awards and nobody really got it. They thought I just needed to get my roots done."
