Kitty Pryde is Not a 28-Year Old Corporate Plant, Says Kitty Pryde

+

Rap princess Kitty Pryde is actually her late-teens/early-twenties age, and not some deceptively old manufactured corporate entity aimed at getting mousy white girls into skater gear. So says Kitty Pryde herself, in this interview video she filmed at Tumblr HQ in conjunction with Tumblr’s Storyboard platform. Over a few minutes, Pryde runs through several things you might or might not know about her. (Yes, she still works at Claire’s; no, she didn’t hook up with RiFF RAFF.) It’s fairly endearing, as you might expect, if only for the part where she explains the superhero origins of her name. She even plays with a really cute dog at the beginning! It’s the most bloggably bloggable thing for days. Plus, it’s enough to make any aspiring journalist think twice about asking her anything as goofy as “Who are your influences?” Duly noted for whenever we get a chance to hang out.
