Billboard has once again met with 2NE1’s leader, CL, for an interview about being “The Baddest Female” she is, women empowerment and her ideal type.
CL began, “I want to change the [general] image that people have of Asian women. I want to express my ideas through my music and on stage because I’m a musician. I want people all around the globe to know that there are girls in Asia, like me, who like hip-hop and dress uniquely.”
The artists has also explained who CL and Lee Chaelin are, “I’m not usually easily satisfied, but I put in a lot of love into this song. Not so much because it’s my first solo track, but because the song describes me the best. There are always two sides to a person. CL is me and so is Chaelin. CL and ‘The Baddest Female’ are the same. But in reality, my personality [Chaelin] is completely different from CL. What is portrayed on stage and in my music videos is different from my everyday lifestyle. But I want to people to see me as CL on stage and in my music.”
Even though she is well-known for her fierce and independent image, she admitted that she would like to fall in love if the right guy came along, ” My ideal type I think it’s important to be with someone you can communicate with. Someone that you can build lasting memories and genuinely enjoy spending time with. I don’t really look at outer appearance or his finances. I earn my own money, so it doesn’t matter [laughs].”
