    As if her own birth name weren’t bizarre enough.
    She referred to her hometown – a New Age-hippy mecca with the world’s largest weed festival – as ‘a lot of tie-dye shit going on.’ This made her, a sober Australian white rapper, an anomaly in her town.
    She admits to not being particularly close to her sister — who was named Emerald!
    Still in high school, she formed a group with two other girls, only to find neither of them took the craft seriously.
    She told her parents she planned to go on vacation in Miami with a lawyer friend — right before her 16th birthday. (As she told them later, she actually went alone, and the ‘lawyer’ was a meth addict.)
    She listed Victoria Beckham as a style inspiration.
    Having relocated to the Deep South, her vocal tone quickly picked up its accent while her speech retained its Down Under accent.
    When she was still an infant, the family relocated to Mullumbimby in her father’s hand-built 12-acre mudbrick house.
    Nor was she willing to go the Britney route her earliest sponsors initially felt more at ease with (well, they did say she was white and looked like a model).
    Having envisioned herself as their Left Eye, she listed TLC as her inspiration for her high-school group.
    She took her stage name from her dog and the street on which her family continued to live.
    Having moved from city to city in the States with little success and diminishing funds – which left her worried she would have to head back home to continue working as a chambermaid alongside her mother – she found an unlikely savior in Perez Hilton.
    She listed Tupac Shakur and Missy Elliott as musical influences, her father as a visual artistic influence, and Gwen Stefani and ‘that nanny named Fran’ as style influences.
