You’ve definitely seen @princessgollum on your newsfeed. Over the last few years, the 24-year-old model-turned-DJ has become a bonafide internet star, walking runways for Gypsy Sport and starring in campaigns for JNCO, Obey and HSWLD—pretty much clogging your Instagram. But she couldn’t care less. After a traumatic year marked by death, depression and a serious breakup, the deeply spiritual Californian is just trying to get to know Josephine Pearl Lee.

Tell us a secret:
I won’t tell you when but I wet the bed.

You’re planning a dinner party and can invite anyone you want (dead or alive). Who do you invite?
Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson—to ask them if owning slaves is living their best lives, maybe rewrite some of the constitution and honestly convince them to put me on the $100,000 bill. Lol, all my friends are dead presidents.
Last thing you binge watched:
Making a Murderer + My So Called Life.
One thing everyone thinks they know about you, but actually isn’t true:
I think people think I’m taller than I am, but I’m part of the 4’11 heaven club.

The key to a good selfie:
Instagram or Snapchat?
Instagram for business, Snapchat for pleasure.
Selfie stick or mirror selfie?
If you really think about it, our arms are just selfie sticks we were born with.
Best part of Instagram:
Finstas ♡ Connecting
Worst part of Instagram:
The unnecessary and unhealthy sense of value of the number on top of your profile. All my favorite humans have like 100 followers—I love that. And at the end of the day, it’s just Instagram. Right?
Yeezy or Off-White?
Off-White for brunch, Yeezy to sleep in.
Eyeliner or lipstick?
Lipstick every day.
Favorite item of clothing:
My vintage Pac shirt, it still smells like you.
Favorite designer right now:
Molly Goddard now. All time fave: Anne Sofie Madsen
Your style in 5 words:

If you had to tattoo one person’s name on your ass, who it would be?
Fred Durst ←·̇·̣̇̇·̣̣̇·̣̇̇·̇ –«
Spirituality or organized religion?
Sleepover or one-night-stand?
I’m too sensitive for one night stands ☹
Boyfriend or best friend?
Ideally both, but if if I had to choose, bffs are forever.
What song do you want to play at your funeral?
“I Hope You Die” by Molly Nilsson and all the Chief Keef—maybe “Ain’t Missing You” and “Laughin to the Bank.” Even though I have no tattoos right now, if I even get to live to be 80, I’m gonna be all tatted up—gonna start when I’m 65. Also, donating my body to science because traditional burials—even cremation—is really harmful to the environment and honestly GD expensive. I would never want my loved ones to have to deal with my dead carcass, especially when I’m not there to actually boss them around. BUT, if my body is no good for science, then I’d like an open casket only for my gang gang. When I’m buried, I’d like to be buried naked and return to the particles of dirt that we truly are. Then an open party for everyone where I will have a mix recorded and a hologram of me DJing. Someone might still need to press play, but we’ll see where the technology is by then. The moral of the story is: Thank you for reading and being my friend on and offline. This past year has maybe been my hardest and having you here means the world to me. I know I talk about wanting to die all the time, but I think I actually want to live so thank you and love you. For life & death.
