What’s On Skylar Grey’s Phone? | Marie Claire ::Ever wondered what’s on your favorite celebrity’s phone (ya know, in a non-weird way)? MarieClaire.com teamed up with Skylar Grey to unlock some cellular secrets, and got details on the singer’s personal texts, most embarrassing photos, and even her weirdest phone habits. Let’s collectively swipe right, shall we?
What’s your phone’s lock screen photo? “A photo of my dog Scout running through the mountains in Utah. But thanks for reminding me…I need to change it to include my new puppy as well!”
What was the last photo you liked on Instagram? “A photo of another dear friend Oliver Trevena… he’s standing with a couple of kids who are holding signs for Operation Smile. He’s very socially conscious and philanthropic. I’m trying to do more of that too…which is why at the Grammys I partnered with Absolut Lime for their #RefreshTheTalk campaign that puts a spotlight on social issues on the red carpet.”
Look at your camera roll—what was the last random thing you screen-grabbed? “A screen grab of a magazine putting me on the ‘best dressed’ list on the Grammys red carpet! For the campaign, I did my own version of the Women’s March on the carpet by holding a clutch with LED lights on it that flashed words like ‘equality’ and ’empowerment.‘ I was stoked to see that people noticed my little march!”
What’s your most played song on Spotify? “Currently ‘Daydreaming’ by Radiohead. It’s so beautiful and melancholy—it makes me cry.”
What’s the most embarrassing photo on your phone? “I don’t really get embarrassed by photos. As you can probably tell from my Instagram, I’m comfortable with my body and believe in instilling confidence for other girls to feel the same.”
