!! OMG, a Q&A with Hayley Kiyoko !!

hayley-kiyoko-portrait

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/actor Hayley Kiyoko caught a lot of ears last year thanks to the insanely catchy “Girls Like Girls” single from her This Side Of Paradise EP [Spotify | iTunes]. The video (which Kiyoko co-directed) has racked up an impressive 49 million plays, and the buzz helped her get signed to Atlantic for her new Citrine EP [Spotify | iTunes].

Kiyoko is once again directing and writing her own videos, and has just released a tear-jerking clip for “One Bad Night” featuring trans activist and vlogger Erin Armstrong. The new single follows the previously released video for “Cliff’s Edge,” and a summer tour opening up for Miike Snow.

We caught up with Kiyoko on a break at home before she heads back out on the road for a string of headlining shows across the USA. Read the Q&A and check out her upcoming tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, WATCH: John Oliver takes on America’s opioid addiction !!

Did you know that over more than 2.6 million Americans were addicted to opioids in 2015?

“These pills are getting used or falling into the hands of others – from those who are already addicted to just bored teenagers.” says Oliver.

“A nuanced discussion between the medical community about the complexities of brain treatment is clearly important. [The] problem is: that discussion became dominated by the pharmaceutical industry, who started amplifying the message that opioids should not just be used for acute pain — from that of cancer or surgery — but all sorts of pain, like arthritis and backaches.”

“One of Purdue’s doctors in charge of marketing the drug, said that the problem with the perception that people are addicted is that it’s just “relief seeking behavior mistaken as drug addiction.”

“Wow, that is so convenient. That is like Chipotle going, ‘Have you heard of this fascinating new thing called pseudo-diarrhea? It looks a lot like diarrhea but it’s not diarrhea and the cure may actually be more tacos.”

Thoughts? Do you know someone who’s been hooked on the prescriptions?
