Ever wanted St. Vincent as an agony aunt? Well, your dreams have kind of come true! Annie Clark joined Tavi Gevinson recently for ‘Ask A Grown’ on the Rookie podcast, and she was presented with a question from a listener who had recently moved to a new country and was dealing with some confidence issues. She shared some amazing advice (obvs), including wisdom that her uncle gave her about feeling self-conscious: “No one’s looking at you, and no one cares because everyone is obsessed with themselves.” She then assured the listener that they weren’t alone and said: “I think the ‘faking it til you make it’ thing is very real. If you don’t have confidence, pretend to be a person who does, and eventually, you will have confidence because you’ll see the fruits of your reaching out to people”. Can we get Annie Clark her own advice column now? Ta! While we’re waiting for that to come off, listen to the whole podcast here. Recently, it was revealed that Jack Antonoff had been working with Annie, which was Very Exciting News Indeed. Earlier in the year St. Vincent teamed up with John Legend and Zach Galifianakis for a cover of Minnie Riperton’s ‘Lovin’ You’ for Planned Parenthood. Revisit the cover below.
