Hey everyone this week we have a super exclusive the Incredibly attractive and talented Austin Head! this is an exclusive Make A Difference interview with this talented and fashionable DJ. The Make A Difference team and Austin hope you all enjoy this as much as we did!
1. Q: Who's your biggest inspiration?
A: Before beginning this interview, I’d like to state that I’ve been boozing since …on a Monday. So! With that said, let’s try to get through this in one piece, eh?
My biggest inspiration? Musically, I grew up on Bette Midler, Reba McEntire & The B-52s. A mix of Rock, Country, Glam & Camp; my weird core of misfits.
Fashion wise, I love to keep current on fashion outside of the States. Like, in Tokyo, it’s trendy for boys to wear flat-panel skirts over their skinny jeans. I’m in process of working that into a look. Let’s see how Phoenix, AZ takes it. If they don’t like it, Fuck ‘em!
2. Q: If you had to pick one place in the world to pull inspiration where would it be?
A: I love traveling to NYC every couple months to soak up their vibes. I lived there for 5 years on and off since I was 19. Ten months of those was spent living out of a 1988 Lincoln Limo I bought off eBay. I made it as glam as homelessness can get!
3. Q: What would you say the difference between "Couture" and "trashy" is?
A: Couture: Gaga; Trashy: Ke$ha
4. Q: Who's your favorite designer(s)?
A: Vivian Westwood, The Blonds, & Galliano, (Aesthetically, of course. His work is separate from his drunken slurs – I’m sure, I mean I know, I’ve offended plenty in my lush life, just not on camera)
5. Q: Out of all the "Internet Celebrities" who would you say has came the furthest.
A: Rebecca Black; a 13 year-old walks into a studio, records a song that I’ve compared to the song in ‘Mars Attacks’ they used to blow-up the Aliens’ Heads, goes viral for the wrong reasons, then pleasantly magnified by her decision to donate the proceeds to the relief effort in Japan.
1. Q: Where can you see yourself in 5 years?
A: Wherever I’ve guided myself to be. Make no mistake, however, that anyone can do anything on his or her own. I’ve had many fantastic people place the boards on my grand staircase.
2. Q: When you are in the creative process, what drives you?
A: Just wanting to make the world more interesting. Viva Glamour! The majority of my work derives from my own entertainment. I just hope the rest of you enjoy the show!
3. Q: What is the highlight of your career?
A: Hmm… Well I just produced ‘The Monster Ball’s Lady Starlight After-Party’ here in Phoenix. I got to work along side Lady Starlight (Gaga’s BFF & co-collaborator), had an awesome time spinning sick beats, was surrounded by beautifully amazing friends, & sang out a Bowie song on a rooftop over looking a crowd of hundreds!
The entire event bested everything before. But, that’s the way it should be I think. I can’t wait for what comes next. I love how Dolly Parton said it, “Get you dreams in line, then shine, design, refine ‘til they come true! You better get to livin’!”
