Rolling Stone Magazine recently talked to 10 of the hottest artists who are "climbing the charts, breaking the Internet or just dominating our office stereos" this month. And guess who their list includes... our beloved CL.
She told Rolling Stone, "I don't actually like calling myself a rapper," CL says. "I'm more a performer. I don't like to box myself into anything, because I also sing and I love to dance; I do everything".
"I don't want to take too much responsibility, where I'm like, 'Oh, I'm representing Asia," CL continues, "I'd want to, of course, because I am Korean, and after Psy, there were no Asian artists out here doing music. I would love to represent Asian girls and be an example or an idol for girls [in the U.S.] That is my dream, but I don't want that to be my main goal. I just want to do something I love, and music comes first for me."
Rolling Stone also claim the MC is "poised for a major breakthrough in the U.S. come fall with a debut EP out on Mad Decent (Diplo's label)".
The list includes other artists:
- Tunde Olaniran
- Snoh Aalegra
- Grave Pleasures
- Travis Mills
- Cold Beat
