Ruby Rose Talks DJing And Turning “Straight Women Gay” In Galour Interview
Ruby Rose spends a lot of time in the public eye as a result of Orange Is The New Black, her advocacy for gender fluidity and just generally being a total babe. But she wants everyone to know that when she’s not in the public eye, she’s working and working hard.
Speaking to Galour Magazine, Ruby spoke about the “kiss of death” label of being an “it girl” and the fact that she’s so much more than that. Ruby doesn’t want to be a fleeting fancy and is working hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. She’s been in a bunch of films since OITNB, voiced an animated TV series and has DJed over 70 shows in the past year.
Ruby’s DJing is often overlooked but she’s legit. Look it up, she slays. She says she doesn’t mind that it’s not heavily focused on in the media though saying, “it’s a matter of being comfortable not being everywhere for however long it takes to create new art, and [promoting things] that you are proud of, like working on your craft and new skills, and working your ass off while being quiet publicly—not just existing to be popular. You don’t want people to get sick of you, so it’s good to be able to appear and disappear.”
She also said she finds it funny when straight women say she “turns” them gay. “I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility,” she said. “It sounds like I did something against their will in the middle of the night, as if I crept into their brain and pushed the gay button, then did an evil laugh and left them to fend for themselves—newly gay and alone in the world.”
She said she doesn’t mind, as she knows it’s a “term of endearment” but that it’s just simply not possible. Though she believes that sexuality sits on a spectrum, she doesn’t think any one person can completely change where another sits on that spectrum.
