Skylar Grey MCCXXI :: ‘Exploring the Unknown’ – Interview w/ Tess Adamakos for INKED | Photos

Following her #TattooTour piece from this past month, Tess Adamkos has published another piece w/ Ms. Grey for INKED!

Read a section of the interview below, and click either or the two new pro-shots (by Brendan Walter) to read the full piece!

Skylar Grey x INKED | Interview ::
“….while her work with Eminem has been a long-time dream of hers, Grey has more unexplored territory to uncover. “Ever since I wrote for Eminem I keep getting invited back to write more and to tour multiple times,” Grey says. “I’ve developed a really amazing relationship with him creatively. The whole relationship has been so important to my life and career, and I’m so grateful for it.”

Alongside Breakthrough of the Year and MTV Video Music Awards, Grey’s VMA nomination for the “Video for Good” category, through her work with Jamie N Commons and Gallant on “Runaway Train, was an extremely special project for her. The song is a call to recognize and take action to support the hundreds of thousands of missing children and teens in the United States today. “We actually found a missing child with that music video,” Grey says. “It was really cool because they used this technology to make the video interactive in the sense that whatever city you were watching the video from, it features different missing kids based on your area.” Helping to locate children, whether they’re in New York or Nebraska, is something Grey is more proud of than the nomination itself. “To have the video nominated means more exposure, giving us a better chance of finding more kids,” Grey adds. “It was extremely cool to be a part of.”

Including her recent release with Train called “Mai Tais, which premiered on an episode of “Magnum P.I.” Skylar Grey shares that her singles will continue to pour. “Making ‘Angel With Tattoos’ an open-ended album, I am breaking the rules. As I write songs that I feel fit the vibe of this album, I’ll keep adding them to it,” Grey says. “I’ve released these first five songs, but it’s definitely just the start.”….”

Skylar Grey MCCXV :: ‘Mai Tai’ w/ Train – Premiering in ‘Magnum P.I.’ 2×8, Airing 15-NOV-2019 | Press Release

Ms. Grey‘s coming “Mai Tai” collaboration w/ Train is set to premiere in season 2/episode 8 (“He Came by Night”) of CBSMagnum P.I. this next month (November 15) – see the official, newly released press release below!

Skylar Grey x Train x Magnum P.I. | Press Release ::
“….“He Came by Night” – Magnum and Higgins’ new partnership is tested when they disagree about being hired by a woman who wants them to recover her $3 million in stolen drug money in order to save her husband’s life. Also, TC and Shammy must get to the bottom of a potential case of someone impersonating a decorated veteran, on MAGNUM P.I., Friday, Nov. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Grammy Award-winning artist Train performs the world premiere of their new song “Mai Tai” with special guest Skylar Grey.

MAGNUM P.I. is a modern take on the classic series centering on Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business.

The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore “TC” Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island.

Suspicious of Magnum’s casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit. One of Magnum’s biggest supporters is Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta, the unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator of Robin’s Nest.

With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!….”

Skylar Grey MCCXIV :: ‘Angel With Tattoos’ – Interview x Tattoo Tour w/ Tess Adamakos for INKED | Photos

“….I don’t want people to forget that true love and happiness really do exist….”
 – Skylar Grey, INKED

Appropriate, given today’s release of Angel With TattoosTess Adamkos has collaborated w/ Ms. Grey on a special #TattooTour interview feature for INKED!

Read a section of the interview below, and click any of the new pro-shots to check out Ms. Grey detailing each of her own tattoos exclusively to INKED!

Skylar Grey x INKED | #TattooTour ::
“….you’ve heard Skylar Grey’s vocals on countless chart-toppers, including Fort Minor’s “Where’d You Go, Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor, Nicki Minaj’s “Bed of Lies, and Macklemore’s “Glorious. Or, you’ve appreciated her songwriting through countless hits, including Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie, (and soon to be released, a song for Celine Dion.)

You’ve seen Margot Robbie kick ass to Skylar Grey’s contributions to the Suicide Squad soundtrack (Kehlani’s “Gangsta, which she co-wrote, and her single “Wreak Havoc.) Or, if you didn’t watch Fifty Shades of Grey for just the sex scenes, you heard Grey’s “I Know You” once the credits rolled.

While known for writing some of new-age hip-hop’s biggest hits, Skylar Grey is returning to her Wisconsin roots with her latest project, Angel With Tattoos. Echoing Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor and Joni Mitchell, the EP comes with the tattooed-edge only an angel with ink can bring. Growing up with a folk-musician mother and a father in a barbershop quartet, Angel With Tattoos features a ‘70s vibe as an ode to the diverse music of her childhood, while seamlessly bridging the generational gap, with hints of Sheryl Crow and KT Tunstall shining through….

Skylar Grey tells INKED that ‘Angel With Tattoos’ is inspired by love.

“It’s to help the world believe in love and fairytale romance again,” she adds. “In this day and age, it’s almost expected to have a fucked up relationship, but I don’t want people to forget that true love and happiness really do exist.”

Her fiancé Elliott Taylor coined the nickname “angel with tattoos” for Grey, to capture her duality as a sweet girl with a rebellious edge.

“Along with loving the art and commitment that goes into tattoos, I actually got them partially because I am a sensitive person, and I felt having tattoos would make me tougher and people would not want to push me around anymore,” Grey says. “I wanted to feel a little bit intimidating on purpose.”….

This, she mentions, has come around in an unexpected way, as the single “Angel With Tattoos” tells the story of wanting to be accepted into her partner’s family, but feeling judged because of her body art. She admits the story of this single was factually based with her fiancé’s family.

“Sometimes people think you’re a bad person when they see your tattoos. That’s why Elliot came up with the phrase, because he knows the real me. He knows I’m a good person, I’m honest and loyal, and would do anything for him,” she says. “People can be very judgmental towards tattoos.

This, she highlights, is the second mission of her album.

“I also want to get that message to listeners through this album,” Grey adds. “Judging people based off stereotypes doesn’t mean you’re seeing the real person.”

Alongside this latest EP, Grey has a song coming out in November with Train called “Mai Tais”….”
