How do you define your personal style?
For everyday styles, the outline is always casual. Whether it’s 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s, I love to mix and match. But I never imitate: I always add my own style.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
In terms of my career, of course my six albums and solo concert. And now I'm in the process of making my next album, an ongoing progress.
What motto do you live by?
Always have your feet on the ground.
What turns you on creatively?
Music and fashion, definitely!
What is sexy to you?
Sexy is when someone is so passionate that they pursue their dreams.
What profession other than your own would you like to try?
Right now, I don't have any desire to be anything other than who I am right now. I’m now a singer and also businesswoman. But there are still a few goals that I would like to accomplish, in many other spheres.
What's something about you that you wish more people would focus on?
I want people to focus more on my activities, because in each of my activities I always include a social message.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Just enjoy it!
What are your greatest fears?
When I don't have a great support system.
Where is your favourite holiday spot?
In Indonesia, I love the eastern region, like Sumba, Flores, and Ambon. Overseas, I love Japan and Europe. And there is one country that I have never visited: New Zealand. I think I would be very excited when I got there.
