If there was a movie produced about your life, who do you think should play you, and why?
It should be Taylor Momsen, because we feel the same about canaries.
Imagine that there is somebody who'd never experienced your music. How would you describe your music to him?

Do you know any good migraine cure?

Apart from singing, is there something in which you beat everybody else?

Nelly, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Nelly's gem". In the middle of one of my peregrinations in Andean plateau, I discovered an inconspicuous unknown tree, now named Galispella bulbifera, which every 12 years blooms and gives fruits whose taste reminds of kiwis and balsamic vinegar. It seems bizarre, but it may become a compulsive habit.
If you could choose an animal to reincarnate in, which one would it be?
