They were spotted leaving the Brit's together last week and it seems that Cara Delevingne and her new gal pal St Vincent are pretty much inseparable. The rumoured hot new couple were spied shopping in NYC yesterday and they make quite the fashionable pair. But who just who is St Vincent? Here’s 10 things you need to know...
1) Vital Stats
St Vincent’s real name is Anne Erin Clark, also known as Annie and she’s 32 years old
2) New York State of Mind
Annie was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but currently lives in Manhattan
3) The Brits
She was nominated for the International Female Solo Award at the Brits this year but lost out to Taylor Swift
4) The Grammys
....But the week before the Brits the singer scooped a Grammy Award. She wasn’t there to collect the award for Best Alternative Music Album (she was in Australia) but she sent out a kick ass email to thank her fans. You can read it in full here and it tells you a little bit more about her story.
5) Poetic Influence
Her stage name comes from a Nick Cave song – it's a reference to the hospital where Dylan Thomas ( a Welsh poet) died
6) On Her Sexuality...
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last year she refused to comment on whether she was gay, straight or bisexual and said: ‘I don't think about those words. I believe in gender fluidity and sexual fluidity. I don't really identify as anything. [. . .] I think you can fall in love with anybody. I don't have anything to hide but I'd rather the emphasis be on music.’
7) Music maker
She’s a talented musician and plays the guitar, bass, piano, organ, and theremin (which is an electronic synthsizer FYI)
8) Her Sound
Her music has been described as ‘high-concept, high-energy art rock.’ You can check out her video for her track Digital Witness below.
9) Opening Act
She’s opened for several acts you may have heard of including The Black Keys, Arcade Fire
10) Going Public?
She and Cara were said to have been spotted kissing at the Universal Brit Awards After Party. Neither party has yet to comment but it's clear that the girls are enjoying each other's company. With Cara's sights set on breaking the music industry she could be learning lots from her new girlfriend.
