As the reckless lead vocalist of a critically acclaimed indie band, Alice Glass is cool by unofficial definition. So cool, in fact, that NME awarded you with "#1 Cool" award, ahead of Jay-Z. Pretty sweet, huh? Well, not exactly for Glass, the super sexy lead vocalist for Crystal Castles. "I'm flattered, thank you, but back in school the people who held themselves in the same regard were also the biggest waste of skin I've ever met," said the rebellious rockstar after receiving the award.
Strategic message perhaps? Whatever the case, being labeled "cool" by any mainstream source is a step closer to "selling out." Nevertheless, Alice has us wondering if she's hot because she's cool, or cool be cause she's hot. Either way, we like her music a lot.
