The Lost Star
Chicago’s own diva-divine-blonde it’s quite an accomplishment: as a poet, she writes all her lyrics; as an all-round artist, she ventures into all styles of music—even rap.
Her image: a maverick in the current artistic landscape. And once again it demonstrates her credo: hyper-femininity is the force that drives the dance! Indulgent and insolent, anti-conformist and playful down to her manicured fingertips, The Lost Star tears up the cliché of the objectivised glossy blonde glamour-puss, walking tall as a free woman, paradoxical and proudly sexual. Winter Bride, Beyond the Blur, Chiara Scura, Liberty – Freedom is not Free...titles that may well become iconic.
But don’t be deceived: this submissiveness is just part of a short-lived erotic game... “Be beautiful and shut up”: those famous instructions she hated so much when she arrived in the Paris fashion world don’t suit her at all! With no shame and no coyness, in the first person, The Lost Star sings, as Juliette Greco did, about joyful sexuality that flaunts convention; her heroines are women who break the rules. In one song (lasting almost nine minutes—almost a trance), she pays tribute to the spellbinding “Aphrodite” who had all men at her feet. In another, she pays homage to Mary- Magdalene, “the wife of Jesus”, against whom the Church has always discriminated (“Goddess of the Gospels”):
With her radiant, silky-smooth vocals, The Lost Star knows how to make our bodies come alive and secrete oxytocin, the love hormone, irrespective of our gender. She knows how to spark a desire for freedom; she is happy to be who she is, and believes she can achieve her craziest dreams;
she trusts her intuition and her female gaze... The shy little girl from Chicago who studied piano and sang alone in front of her bedroom mirror is still amazed that her dream has come true: “I wanted to be on the stage...and here I am!”
