This week we're getting 411 on LA based babe Victoriah Bech, have a read at our #EGOUNLOCKED interview of what went down....
Tell us about yourself in tweet form (280 characters)
I’m a Danish artist and pro dancer. At 18 I moved alone to L.A. to pursue my dreams of becoming an international artist. I was on national TV since age 12 and I’m also the funniest person you’ll ever meet. Besides Kevin Hart. & I pretty much do everything myself #MyOwnBoss
How did you end up where you are in life right now?
At age 2 I got a t-shirt that said “Born to perform” from my family. I guess everyone have always known I’m supposed to be in entertainment. I’m also the only “camera wh*re” in my family ha ha. My sister doesn’t even have Instagram. On a more serious note a lot of strength and long lonely hours has gotten me to where I am today: happier and more excited than ever to release my new music to the world.
Tell us a random fact about yourself
know EVERYTHING about Tupac’s death and the OJ Simpson case – like literally everything! I also can’t get ready if I don’t watch LockUp or another prison documentary. Weird, I know. I have a weird obsession with real life crime stuff haha.
What's your proudest moment to date?
My proudest moment is when I gave up everything I know back home in Denmark and moved to Los Angeles by myself to pursue my dream of becoming an international artist. I was 18 straight out of high school, brand new drivers license and had to build my adult life in a new country.
Who's on your playlist right now?
My playlists are all over the place! From 6lack to that new song with Khalid “Love Lies” to Tupac “ I get around” to Migos “Stir Fry” To Lauryn Hill Ex-Factor” to Janet Jackson. There’s A LOT going on…..
Who's your biggest inspiration?
As an artist Janet Jackson has always been my biggest inspiration. I used to watch all her concert on VHS tapes as a kid. I’m also very into Tupac’s artistry.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
As one of the most influential artists. With enough security to be able to continue spending all my free time with the kids at the shelter in Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles.
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
Producer wise it would be so awesome working with Max Martin who’s basically the king of pop producing. If I should work with an artist it should be Drake – everything he touches turns gold.
What's the one thing you can't live without?
My dogs Albert Einstein and Daisy Duke. And probably my mom too.
What is your most used hashtag?
What's your advice for anyone trying to break into the music industry?
Be prepared to make a lot of sacrifices. Long nights. Hard work. Be prepared to stand alone and people not understanding your vision or simply just shutting the door on you. Also I think what separates a world filled with talent from the ones that actually makes it is: DISCIPLINE.
