US: So tell me your story…
LG: I was born in Toronto, and studied with the National Ballet of Canada, I went to school to study dance, slept on the floor, ate nothing, waitressed – and then there was a Mary J. Blidge audition. Basically they paid so much more, and it became all about the music industry stuff and that’s when I met Puffy. I’ve gone on to work with everyone from The Dixie Chicks to Dido to Puffy to Gaga to Nicki Minaj.
US: What about your newest star client, Nicki Minaj?
LG: Her talent as a rapper and as a singer is first of all phenomenal, and in the same way as Gaga, her records speak to me. She’s free to express the records visually and have that effect when you go to her concert. She’s free to engage the experience, so there’s no box. She’s like, ‘I don’t want to be cute!’ She’s like a Barbie, then she wants to be a superhero, or coming out of a spaceship and everything’s pink. She makes a certain move that’s ghetto hood mixed with a little robot so its like I’m evolving Nicki Manaj and developing her style. She’s fearless, and I love her.
