♥ YOU! KATE NASH
May 28, 2015
It’s mind-blowing to think that it’s been nearly a decade since Kate Nash first burst upon the scene with her bubbly 2007 hit “Foundations.” (Which, by the way, is still just as amazing now as it was back then.) But over the past several years, the London singer and songwriter has emerged from a pop music upstart into a 360-degree rockstar: releasing subsequent albums such as 2013’s Girl Talk, writing with the likes of Rita Ora and Willow Smith, and collaborating with bands like SUPERCUTE!
Now, Kate has another gig up her sleeve with the foundation of Girl Gang, a collective of awesome, creative girls. Kate, alongside her Girl Gang co-members, are spearheading this movement aimed at empowering and inspiring cool females all over the world. It’s a mission that literally anyone can get behind, and we can’t imagine anyone better than Kate to lead the way (BTW, can we join?). For now, get the scoop on what she’s been up to recently — as well her thoughts on sneakers, emojis, and Rihanna — in our pop quiz below.
