Exclusive interview with the lead singer of Evanescence

Who: Amy Lee
Why: As the lead singer for Evanescence, Lee blows us away with her powerful vocals – and her fabulous rocker-Goth style. Watch for her new album, Fallen, October 3rd.
Little-known fact: The song “Hello” from the album Fallen was written in memory of her sister Bonnie, who died at the age of three.

Flare: Who is your favourite designer?
Amy Lee: “Alexander McQueen, hands down. His stuff is very Victorian but Rock & Roll at the same time – just like me. I can’t wait to get my hands on some pieces from his new collection. We just shot the video for our new album (The Open Door) and the outfit I am wearing was definitely McQueen-inspired.”

F: What’s your biggest fashion pet peeve?
AL: “I hate anything that matches too well.”

F: What does the word “Style” mean to you?
AL: “Style is a form of expression. To me it’s another form of art.”

F: What are you listening to right now?
AL: “The best cheesy mixed-CD that I found the other night. I was going through an old collection and came across this unlabelled cd. Huey Lewis and The News’ “It’s the Power of Love” came on. I had to get up and dance!”

F: What do you think is the one album everyone should own?
AL: “Bjork’s album Post.”

F: What’s the one item you cannot leave home without?
AL: “My credit card. The big limit one!”
