WHO: Eternia, emcee extraordinaire
WHERE: Daily Operations Record Store (372A Queen West, 416-977-2239), above the Horseshoe. Big up El K and Serious!
WHEN: Sunday, noon
CLOTHING: "The knit cap is from Big It Up (58 Spadina, 416-591-0864, and others), of course. I own too many Big It Up hats to count. This one retails for $39.99. The white Fruit of the Loom undershirt can be purchased at Zellers (in Gerrard Square at 1000 Gerrard East, 416-466-2103, and others). My manager actually gave me one from her $7 three-pack. I don't remember what I paid for this cream terry-cloth zip-up from Guess (306 Yonge, 416-506-8882, and others), and my jean skirt was around $39.99 from Neon Clothing (391 Queen West, 416-585-9595). I got these Melissa (www.melissausa.com) shoes the last time I was in Manhattan for $50 U.S. My handbag (not pictured) is from Old Navy (Eaton Centre, Yonge and Dundas, 416-593-2551, and others) and was under $20 bucks. My ring, necklace and earrings are handmade. I bought them from a vendor when my sister and I went to Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West, 416-973-4000) to see a Nina Simone doc. I wish I knew this guy's name - the jewellery was insane."
HAIR: "Dean at the Lid Lounge (115B Church, 416-367-5437) is the only person allowed to touch my hair with scissors. I've never dyed my hair permanently in my life. My manager says I'm a pussy. My sister Jessica (firstname.lastname@example.org) braids my hair a lot for live performances."
MY STYLE: "Wouldn't-look-at-her-twice Rye High student by day, heels and mini-skirt super-emcee by night."
INTO: "Recording my first solo album right now at 3 Bone Audio (550 Queen East, 416-703-5917), and jumpin' onstage when I can fit it in with my recording schedule. I made time for NXNE (www.nxne.com), of course. I'm performing with DJ Law and special guests in the FLOW Urban Music Showcase on Saturday (June 12) at 9 pm sharp. It's at the Reverb (651 Queen West, 416-504-0744), costs $10 without a NXNE wristband and also features Ray Robinson, Skitz, Jenna G and Bishop.
