Here’s what she had to say:
Yasmine Yousaf was born February 18, 1992, in
Epiphone acoustic guitar as a gift, which she said was "actually the thing that got me into song-writing". When she got the guitar she said, "Hey, let's write songs. And so, thank you, mother and father, thank you very much for getting me this guitar."
"Yo yo, I'm just tryna get my d**k wet tonight, that's all"
"There should be an international "no filter day"
"By the way guys, sorry if your like seven and I'm swearing every second. That's probably not how you're supposed to be raised. I'm a bad influence what can I say?"
"S**t! I suck at the internet, I don't know how to use it... Chat, why you no work? Oh, it is working! Hi!"
"Why the f**k you gotta ask me things like "What's the meaning of life?" Actually, I think the meaning of life is to have a life of meaning... and that's it, yeah."
"Yo motherf**kers, shout out to Ultra TV. We're Krewella; I'm not really as big of a douchebag as I look... maybe."
