Refinery recently caught up with our girl Dev and this is what they had to say about her
“The music world is rife with cookie cutter pop stars and over-the-top artistes (hi Gaga!), but it’s rare to come across a musician who exudes both charisma and the all-important relatability — two things the charming Dev has in spades.

The 22-year-old singer, who you may recognize from her vocals on Far East Movement’s hit “Like A G6,” or her only solo single “In The Dark,” is insanely talented, gorgeous, and one of the most down-to-earth stars we’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing. After just a few minutes in her company, she easily made it onto our “Celebs We’d Like To Grab A Beer With” list.

We have a hunch that it was that likability factor — coupled with her amazing talent and unique beauty look, of course— that prompted CK One to snap Dev up as a “color tastemaker” for the re-launch of their makeup line. We sat down with the star to learn a bit more about her style, her first album, and why she’s a wiz with an eye pencil.”

They also interviewed her and talked about style
“I grew up really influenced by rock ‘n’ roll, and grunge. When I was 10, I thought I was like Kurt Cobain, and you really couldn’t tell me any different. Then I grew up and I started with Gwen Stefani — I remember my parents bought me the No Doubt album when I was like nine. I remember them buying me the Eminem album, and me getting more into hip-hop when I was 12, 13 and in high school. So, I like to infuse the influence of hip-hop culture and street culture, with a little bit of that raw undertone. Imperfection is what’s really cool to me. Even when I’m performing live, I like when kids see me mess up sometimes, or I like when my voice cracks — that’s what I celebrated when I’d go watch my favorite bands. That little bit of imperfection.”

How things have changed since she released her debut album “The Night The Sun Came Up”

“I went on my first sort of headlining tour, so I do all of my own venues with these great light set-ups, I have background singers, and all these props — I’m not used to that at all. I have ‘in ears’ now, so I can hear myself when I sing. You know, all that cool stuff. So it’s changed a little bit. I just had a baby [a daughter named Emilia Lovely], so that kind of added to the change, but everything’s definitely been good. So nothing too hectic yet.”

And Some of her must have beauty products
“Right now I’m using this great hair product called Night Rider by Kevin Murphy. It a creamy paste and it holds my hair while I’m onstage, because I sweat a lot — that’s so gross, but I get really sweaty — so it holds it really nice. I love CK One’s dual bronzer, because when I’ve been stuck on a bus and I haven’t been in the sun, I look crazy without it. It makes me all of a sudden look happy, and tan, and pretty. I like to contour with it — I have really high cheekbones. I don’t know where they come from, but they’re great, so I like to play with those. For my skin, I actually use Cetaphil. I use the cleanser and the moisturizer twice a day, every day and night, and it works.”

MTV recently hit up dev to find out what her favourite things were. They included:

Statement Piece: A mean pinky ring.

Concert T-Shirt: Pink Thursday T-shirt.

Fast Food Chain: In-N-Out!

Shoes: Concords 11′s Air Jordans and Jeffrey Campbell heels (Pictured above)

Perfume: SHI by Alfred Sung.

Tattoo: “Menina Bonita” [ED NOTE: translates to: "nice-looking girl"] on my forearm.

eBay Purchase: Only one eBay purchase ever, and it was metal studs.

Magazine: Vogue

Karaoke Song: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”.

Nail Polish: All CK One cosmetics nail polishes!

And this is what MTV had to say about DEV:
“First of all, ‘Dev’ is a bad-to-the-bone, Dev-ilish name, so fierce hand waves to that hotness, girl. But following much chin-scratching and a Google Image search via iPhone minutes later (which basically = a rad pompadour situation, a slew of tattoos and cuckoo kinds of bling) another (totes healthy) obsession was born. Nowadays, I’m driving the MTV Style office all sorts of “STFU!” cray as a result of my latest fave sang-it-loud-and-proud jam, “In My Trunk” from Dev’s popgasm of a debut album, The Night The Sun Came Up. Sing it with me you guys: “I got that junk it’s in mah trunk, it’s in mah trunk…” The lyrics are basically >>>>> and Fergalicious. So, duh, I hit up Dev for this week’s installment of Favorite Things. Homegirl e-mailed me a detailed map of her uhmazing tattoos (!!!) and more sartorial hot sauce, so if you hear me shrieking profanities and/or catch the sound of “In The Dark” lyrics echoing across St. Mark’s today after work, don’t be alarmed… I’m just wearing my <3 (inspired by Dev) on my sleeve. #NoPainNoStyleGain"

In this new interview with Dev she talks about how rad her daughter (Emilia Lovely) will turn out from spending her childhood on a tour bus. She also talks about her first reaction on meeting Enrique Iglesias in person and a lot of other cool stuff. Dev is looking very hot in the video btw ;)

Hey babygoons, check out this very cute and funny interview Devin did with And Pop about, changing diapers, how she met her fiancé Jimmy and we even get to see her “nipples.” ;) lool

Apr 272012

Dev discusses ”In The Dark”, Kesha and Enrique Iglesias ahead of her Allentown performance.

On Enrique: “we thought it would be great to have a male vocal,”. “Iglesias was her first choice for the song, and he enthusiastically agreed to do it, recording his part just before he left on a major tour in November,”
“He thought the song was good and really did us that favor,”

On The Night The Sun Came Up: “I wouldn’t have been able to tour,”. “Having it drop seven months later isn’t bad at all — all kids know how to download stuff nowadays.”

On Emilia: “Emilia is all settled up on the bus, too, watching skate videos with Jimmy,”. She tweeted on April 1. “She’s the coolest (expletive) kid.” “She travels everywhere with me,”. “I was obviously going to bring her into my life.”

On Kesha comparisons: “Ke$ha makes more of these electronic dance songs,”. “I definitely have electronic-influenced records, but I think they’ll get surprised that I sing ballads. It’s all very rhythmic and hip-hop influenced.”
“It’s not a bad comparison,”. “That’s what people do; they don’t really know me yet.”

Hey baby goons, check out what our Mama had to say to a fans question on her favourite party spots

Hey babygoons, check out Verve Girl’s interview with our Mama Goon where Devin recaps on her journey,

When they (The Cataracs) contacted me, I just knew them as these weird, eccentric guys from Berkeley (California) who were getting a lot of love.” “It was three and a half years in the making,” says Dev. Not quite the Cinderella story everyone thought it was”.

Mama Goon, then goes on to talk about her hit track with Far East Movement “Like A G6″

”Radio stations didn’t like ‘Like a G6? at first, they said nobody wanted to listen to that kind of music. But, we put it on YouTube and all of a sudden it had one million views, two million, ten million, twenty. Somehow everyone knew about it.”

DEV then goes on to give advice for young people who are trying to get into the music industry, Dev has two suggestions.

“I know it’s the cliche thing to say, but don’t ever stop working. There is no other option, if this is what you want to do, then that’s it. You just keep working at it. You never give up.” Dev suggests utilizing all the things available to you, to be exact, social networking sites like Twitter,Facebook,Myspace, Tumblr and whatever else gets you noticed. “The Cataracs found me off my Myspace page. It’s not easy but never, ever stop if it’s what you want.”

DEV then talks about her awesome fashion before she became a huge success and now

“When I was a kid, we pretty much only had an Old Navy in my hometown, so my Mom became a person I could look up to for style.”
Now the singer is a little bit luckier with her fashion choices as she works with a company called Hellz Bellz. ”My stylist Lani does pretty much everything. She gives me so many options to choose from and we style the clothes to match the videos. I get a lot of creative control. I meet with the directors and get an idea of what I want.” With that said, Dev says that her everyday fashion is very dependent on mood. “Sometimes I’m in the mood for flashy outfits with sunglasses but sometimes I just want to wear something sleek with heels.”

Verve Girl then go on to ask Mama G about her the stunning dress she wore in her music video ‘Dancing Shoes’ she laughs and tells me she gave it to her younger sister for her grade eight graduation. I live every girls dream… I get to play dress up every day!”

Even though Dev gets to work with Hellz Bellz and plays dress up daily, the singer doesn’t favor any brands. “If I like something, I wear it, I don’t pay attention to brands.” Perhaps she doesn’t regularly pay attention to brands, but she is customizing a few pair of Puma shoes with Sharpies for Vervegirl (That’s the surprise I was talking about)! When asked if she has any plans for the shoes, Dev mischievously says, “I have a few ideas but I’ll wait till I see the shoes.”

Check out what Dev had to say to On the Download, Dev: A pop princess gives lessons on how to be a bad bitch.

Dev says : “It’s funny, when I look back at the first recordings that I did on my Macbook and put on MySpace, one some is this thing where I’m singing really prettily over this electronic beat, and another one is this track where I’m talking a bunch of shit over this really pretty beat, and over the last couple of years I have been developing in some ways as a woman and an artist, but it’s funny how when I go back and listen to this, I’m still kind of the same, like how I grow and change, but at the end of the day, I like what I like!”

Dev, for her part, appreciates the situation she is in now, in terms of the freedom she has to make music free of gimmicks or within the confines of a genre or scene. “For me, as an artist,” she explains, “I have the ability to be vulnerable but also make a pop record.” After the success of “Booty Bounce” and “Like A G6”, she continued to churn out vulnerable pop hits, like the top 20 smash of last year’s “In The Dark”, a masterfully seductive record that flips the switch on the dominant Euro-synth mode in current pop for a Caribbean-lilting dance track that was definitely one of the most buoyant jams of 2011.

“Yeah, I spent some time figuring out what I wanted to do, to create my introduction to the world. I wanted to show the world that I like a lot of different genres and a lot of different music, but at the same time, it’s all Dev.” In this case, “all Dev” means an infectious mix of the spitting rawness of hip-hop and the jump-up-and-down energy of pure pop, with Dev’s distinctive vocal style bridging the gap as she flits between confessional seduction and in-your-face sass. “I was a kid who really liked bands, and I really love just really raw performances, artists and live performers who aren’t afraid to mess up, aren’t afraid to spit on the group! And yeah, I don’t have to stand there with a guitar or be up there with a bunch of dancers like other pop people do– and I love that shit! But I like being a little– I dunno, I’m weird.”

Being pregnant triggered a minor crisis of faith for the singer, but clearly it was an event that has found her all the stronger, especially now that Night has finally seen the light in the States. “When I was pregnant, I wasn’t looking forward to, you know, writing songs about being a mother. I thought ‘Oh my god, I’m never gonna want to be sexy, I’m never gonna want to be a brat!’ But that’s the complete opposite of what happened– I had Emilia, and I felt way more confident and sexy than before. It made me feel like the ultimate woman, in a sense. If anything, it got worse, and anything that people will say will never bother me. And I try to be, you know, just as much of a bad bitch now as I was before. Having a kid, I want to raise my daughter to be confident like that. I really thought that that was going to change, and I was going to change, but it didn’t happen like that”.
