Huck Magazine: Did the Karen O stage persona exist before the Yeah Yeah Yeahs?
Karen O: I remember when I was in, like, the fifth grade, I was a really shy kid and I went to a school where there were only like sixteen kids in my grade, and there’s a variety show type thing and I remember I put on these really dark sunglasses so I couldn’t see – they were like the darkest sunglasses I’ve ever worn, I couldn’t see anything, and I did The Beatles, I lip-synched to The Beatles’ ‘Twist and Shout’, exactly. Jaws were dropping, because they couldn’t believe that that was the same person. Because I had no inhibitions and I really milked it for what it was worth. It blew the teachers’ minds, because I was a really quiet little kid… It’s been brewing for a while.
