Gabbriette will make you want a haircut. The musician, photographer, and dancer has a Joan Jett shag that makes you think, just for a second, I wonder if I can pull that off? In Gabbriette’s case, the hair matches the attitude. Her band, Nasty Cherry, is championed by Charli XCX and has a grungy-girly vibe that involves leather jackets and Kurt Cobain glasses. We talked with Gabbriette about screamo Madonna songs, Mother’s Day, and Bob Dylan.
