Christina Perri: Backstage At the Hard Rock Cafe [Interview]
Directly after Christina Perri and Jason Mraz‘s intimate, Up Close and Personal Fresh concert at the Hard Rock Cafe in NYC on Feb. 14th (Valentine’s Day!) one half of the Jim & Kim morning show, Kim Berk, had a chance to sit down with the biggest Twihard we’ve ever met, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Perri[/lastfm], for a quick, backstage interview.
Yes, of course they talk Team Edward/Team Jacob… but there’s a whole lot more to be learned about the sweet and sexy songstress from the city of brotherly love.
Kim got a chance to catch up with Christina after her fantastic performance with special guest Jason Mraz at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City; a Fresh 102.7 Up Close & Personal concert for some lucky Fresh listeners!
Before diving into all things Twilight, Kim spoke to Christina about the close friendship she has with her guitarist, Johnny Handsome… err… Hanson, whom she surprised with a little Valentine’s Day gift — his girlfriend! Christina flew her out from L.A. so she could be with her man on the lover’s holiday. She also spilled the beans on ANOTHER gift Johnny was still to receive.
After the love fest, it was time to get into the nitty grit:
What’s Christina’s favorite NYC moment? That’s a two-parter… A) Pedicabs with friends acting a fool and B) Visiting John Lennon at Strawberry Fields & The Dakota.
Where does her musical taste come from? That would be her “cool” aunt who changed her life when she gave her The Beatles’ Rubber Soul. Before that she was all hoop earrings and Lil Kim! Whaaat?
Then it was on to Christina’s completely healthy, yet somewhat obsessed, love of the Twilight series as well as her surprise and excitement when the producers of the latest film approached her to be a part of the soundtrack.
Kim finished it all off with the same question she asked Jason…
Which game show does your love life most resemble: Survivor, The Price Is Right or Jeopardy? Christina says “it has to be Jeopardy: ‘What the hell is going on?’ would have to be my love life!”
Here’s Christina’s Set List:
Bang Bang Bang
A Thousand Years
Be My Little Baby (Cover) by The Ronettes
Jar Of Hearts
Distance – Duet w/ Jason Mraz
I Won’t Give Up
