Skylar Grey Interview w/ William Weinstein | Downtown Devil ::
“….WW: Have you seen a lot of people knowing the songs from Suicide Squad as well?
SG: Yeah, I saw people singing along to those as well.

WW: Was that a cool experience, getting to do the movie?
SG: Yeah, absolutely. I love working on movies. It’s like my favorite thing to do. Because, I think, to me a movie is the ultimate form of art. It’s acting, screenwriting, cinematography, music, all these different elements coming together to make one piece. So it’s exciting to be a part of that. And I also love when I’m asked to write for a movie or something. The inspiration is kind of laid out for you … It’s kind of a fun challenge to write specifically about characters or something happening in a story.

WW: About the characters, did you get to meet Jared Leto and Margot Robbie?
SG: Yeah, I’ve met Jared. I actually opened for 30 Seconds to Mars years ago. And then I met Margot at the premiere. She was so sweet….

….WW: Is that where Woodrat comes from?
SG: Woodrat is a clothing line I’m starting, and it’s inspired by the fact that I work in music which puts me in cities and studios and stuff like that all the time, and I work with mostly rappers and stuff, and then I live in the woods. So from the hood to the wood! Woodrat instead of hoodrat. Another play on words, right there….”
