Soko and Lime: The Acid-Sweet Indie Singer Talks Singing, Acting, and Kissing Asia Argento

AE: Ok, and you do whisper spoken world, do you know Conor Oberst?
Soko:
I love Conor.

AE: Is he an inspiration to you?
Soko:
Oh yea, definitely. I love him.

AE: Who else?
Soko:
Um, Morrissey, because he’s vegan and gay, and talks with his heart and soul, and everything, so I feel like him a lot.

AE: How did you become vegan?
Soko:
I’ve been vegetarian since I was five, because I lost my dad and I realized what flesh and a dead body was, and I would have felt horrible if anyone ate my dad, so I didn’t want to eat anyone’s mom or dad or any living creatures, so I stopped eating meat.

AE: I guess if you get put in the ground, the decomposers come after you, biologically speaking.
Soko:
I know.

AE: Do you want to do American movies now?
Soko:
I mean, I want to do movies if they’re good. I don’t care if they’re American, or French or Italian, or Korean. I’m open to everything as long as it’s good.

AE: As long as it’s not porn?
Soko:
I would love to do porn, are you kidding me? Don’t put that in!

AE: [laughs] Are you joking or would you really?
Soko:
I WOULD NOT DO PORN!

AE: [Laughs] OK.
Soko:
I mean, I’d watch them, happily.

AE: Do you like lesbian porn better or straight porn?
Soko:
Oh, totally lesbian porn.

AE: But isn’t it fake and made for straight guys?
Soko:
It’s totally disgusting and fake, so sometimes I watch straight porn.

AE: And you just look at the girl more?
Soko:
No, they’re disgusting and fake.

AE: Yea.
Soko:
I just try to look at organs, more than I look at faces.

AE: [laughs] So no faces?
Soko:
No, just organs. Just pubes.

AE: [laughs] Do you have a girlfriend right now?
Soko: I just got dumped.
