Allie X: The Elusive Chanteuse On Katy Perry, Kale And Korean Spas
Prepare to become Xtremely obsessed with Allie X…
By Portis Wasp
No other artist has us more Xcited at the moment than Allie X, the self-proclaimed loner with the very big voice, who has been mystifying the internet over the last year with her super catchy five letter songs, delightfully bonkers gifs, and general reluctance to reveal anything personal about herself in interviews. Oh how we love the thrill of the chase!
When Katy Perry tweeted back in March that she was “obsessed” with Allie’s song, Catch, we knew then that it was inevitable we’d develop a Fatal Attraction-type crush for this currently unsigned Canadian chanteuse.
We quizzed the elusive Miss X and this is how the brunette babe with Bitch-like-tendencies answered. We’re not being mean; she has a song called Bitch.
MTV UK: Hello Allie! Would you like to introduce yourself?
Allie X: I am Allie. This is my X project.

MTV UK: On your Twitter it says you are ‘the biggest loner you know’. Why is this exactly?
Allie: I am not shy. I don't like socialising or really being with other people. I am more relaxed when I am alone.
MTV UK: What inspired your track, Bitch?
Allie: My relationship with myself. The compromises myself and my shadow make to #coXsist.
MTV UK: If you were going to cook MTV some dinner (Bitch ref, obvs), what would you make us?
Allie: Steamed Kombucha squash, broccolini, kale, and asparagus in an apple cider/flax oil/cilantro dressing, with cultured vegetables and a baked egg garnished in sprouted pumpkin seeds.
MTV UK: You spin around a lot in your video for Bitch. Did you not get dizzy?
Allie: Getting dizzy is kind of the point.
MTV UK: Earlier in the year Katy Perry became so obsessed with you that she tweeted about your song, Catch. That must be nice to hear?
Allie: Very flattering. Love Katy. Super smart businesswoman. Great writer.
MTV UK: What’s your favourite Katy Perry song?
Allie: Hummingbird Heartbeat.
MTV UK: So if your first song was called Catch, and your second Bitch, is it safe to assume that your third will be called something just as punchy, like, Fetch?
Allie: My third song (released second) is something punchy. It’s called Prime.
MTV UK: How would you describe your personal style?
Allie: Harajuku salem mormon.
MTV UK: You like to incorporate artwork, videos and GIFs into your music. How important is a good visual to you?
Allie: Xtremely important
MTV UK: And where do you like to go looking for inspiring visuals?
Allie: Tumblrs and blogs generally.
MTV UK: If you could sum up your mood today with one image from your Tumblr, which would you use?
MTV UK: How do you like to unwind after a long day of making music?
Allie: Paint by numbers. Korean Spas.
MTV UK: And where do you feel most at home?
Allie: The bathtub.
MTV UK: If you ever feel lonely you can call us, yeah?
Allie: I never feel lonely.
