23 yaşındaki Berlinli rapçi Candy Ken, belki herkesin dikkatini müziği ile olmasa bile garip videolarıyla çekmeyi başarıyor. Vücut kasları ile Hello Kitty’i bir arada görebileceğiniz nadir yerlerden biri Candy Ken’in videoları. Öyle ki Hello Kity, lens, küpe ve sticker bunlardan sadece bazıları. Diesel’in Artistic Director’ı yarı İtalyan yarı Japon Nicola Formichetti tarafından Instagram üzerinden keşfedilen Candy Ken, kendisini bir müzisyen olarak tanımlamadığını Paper dergisine verdiği röportajında dile getiriyor:
“I don’t see myself as a musician. I’m trying to inspire people and work with the right people. It all began when I studied for a year in Wenatchee, Washington, which is two hours from Seattle. I played football and went to high school. In Germany, they teach you to get a job and a family. In the US, they said I could do whatever I want.
My biggest goal is to inspire the right people. I know a lot of people think I’m just trying to provoke, but I’m not. I’m trying to get away from stereotypes and follow what my heart tells me and what really makes me happy. I’m trying to work with people like myself and find them. I just want to create music, music videos, films, magazines, photo shoots. I also want my own fashion collection — like Hello Kitty.”
Candy Ken’in yeni videosu What I Like (Na Na Na) dün yayınlandı.
