Skylar Grey Talks Harry Potter | Rolling Stone ::

Skylar Grey: J.K. Rowling is a creative storytelling genius, right up there alongside Eminem.

How far have you taken your Harry Potter fandom?
Skylar Grey: My assistant and best friend Vanessa and I got matching
Deathly Hallows tattoos. They look horrible! But we were in Vegas for a gig, decided to get drunk on margaritas. What do you expect?!….”
