Pabllo Vittar is headed to Sydney to perform at Mardi Gras. Marc Andrews tracked her down for a quick chat…
1. Dua Lipa is also performing at Mardi Gras this year. How fabulous is she?
I admire her work too much. It will certainly be a very happy day for everyone who is coming to the show. I’m looking forward to meeting her in person.
2. What gay artists, or drag artists, do you recommend we investigate?
Liniker and Urias (both from Brazil) are some of the singers who have a very interesting identity in their music, but there are so many other artists to recommend I would be talking about it until tomorrow!
3. We love your wigs, especially the rainbow one. Where can we get them?
All my wigs today are from Sydney Salles. He is a friend, a Brazilian who lives in London and he rocks a lot.
4. So, when are you going to work with Madonna?!
Now, about Madonna, it would be incredible, right? Who would I most like to work with still? With so many people still, I can’t highlight just one name. My mom, Dona Verônica, was always my biggest “idol” – strong, persistent and always cheerful, radiant. She is an example for me and for everyone who knows her.
5. What’s one thing about you no one would ever suspect?
My nails are fake! [Laughs.]
