Check out the fun interview below and see what DEV had to say about her diverse musical style, her family influences and more!

1. When did you first discover your passion for music?

As far back as I can remember I’ve loved music. My parents raised me to have a love and respect for a bunch of different genres. I also studied music in school, I was in band and choir for years. It was when I met The Cataracs in 2008 that I finally felt I could make my love for music a profession. But it goes way, way back.

2. You have an eclectic sound that’s a mixture of Pop, Hip-Hop, Dance and Electro. What helped you broaden your understanding of music?

Like I said, my parents! They bought me Eminem albums, No Doubt, Dr. Dre, Nirvana, etc., all growing up. I was hooked. I loved it all.

3. How did the concept for “In the Dark” come about?

‘In the Dark’ was made in Costa Rica with The Cataracs. I wanted to make a swaggful sexy record. I was feeling sexy that day and wanted to express that. I started my career by making music w my guy friends and singing on their records, so I finally wanted to make a song for the girls!

4. You’ve worked with some of the hottest talent in the industry including Chris Brown, New Boyz, Fabolous and 2 Chainz. Who’s been your favorite artist to work with so far and why?

2 Chainz killed it! Travis Barker, David Guetta. But Timbaland was amazing. I worked w him 3 or 4 days in a row and he was really helpful in teaching me the ropes, I was there with my friends, it was awesome!

5. What inspired your debut album, The Night The Sun Came Up?

I wanted to express my “rags to almost riches” small town girl turns artist/singer. It was my fairy tale album. Hence the fairy tale like cover idk lol.

6. Who else would you like to work with? Is there a future collaboration in the works?

Karen O would be rad. I mean, the more people I work with the more comfortable I get with myself and my craft, so we’ll see!

7. You also appeared on MTV2’s Hip-Hop Squares recently. How was that experience? Would you consider doing acting or more TV appearances?

It was crazy! Everyone was so funny [laughs]!! I like doing TV appearances; I’d be down to do more.

8. What else can current and new fans alike expect from DEV? Any projects you and The Cataracs are currently working on?

I’m working on a new album. A bunch of new sounds and visuals. I’m growing and changing as a person and so is my music. It’s fun!

Dev recently sat down with Teen Vogue and they spoke about different topics including style, her influences and hair styles. Enjoy :)

Who’s influenced your career the most?
It depends. Definitely my family and the singer Karen O of the band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I love her.

If you could go back in time and tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?
To trust myself a little bit more. I always felt really awkward and now I look back and realize I was so cool!

Do you have any advice for teens who would like to break into the entertainment industry?
Stay close to your family, work hard, and be true to yourself.

How would you describe your personal style?
It changes every day. I get to play around a lot. I get a lot of inspiration from the ’70s and I like a little big of edge and imperfection. That gives you character.

What type of makeup do you like to wear on stage?
I wear more makeup than I would normally when I’m on stage. I apply foundation, tons of eyeliner, and a heavy brow.

What has been your favorite hair cut or color you’ve ever tried?
I had mohawk at some point, which I loved, and now I have a bleached head! I’ve never bleached my whole head before. I’ve joined the blonde club and it’s fun.

What kind of fragrances do you like?
I have two younger sisters, fourteen and seventeen, and I steal what they wear or we’ll all trade.

Do you have a message you’d like to send to teens?
I would want to tell them to be confident, stay confident, and have fun. Don’t worry about what anyone else says or thinks. Just be proud of who you are and work it!

Refinery29 had the pleasure of spending a whole day with our Mama Goon – Dev….Well 13+ Hours to be more exact and this is what they had to say about there time with Devin

“In the midst of the Lollapalooza craziness last Saturday, Refinery29 got the exclusive and spent an entire day and night with indie-pop star (and new face of CK One color cosmetics) Dev.

We followed the “Like A G6″ songstress from the fan-packed product launch at the Ulta on State Street to the “Rock the Vote Nights” concert (alongside Kelly Osbourne, no less) and after-party at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. Along with getting to know the down-to-earth singer, we tracked her clothing, hair, and makeup looks, which included covetable Christian Louboutins and (believe it or not) a midday haircut.”

Refinery29 continued by asking dev questions about her style, make up and getting into character.

Casual Wear: “jeans, Vans, and street wear T-shirts from her fiancé’s (a professional skater) closet.”

Going Out: “dresses and heels all the way.”

Favorite Designers: “Simone Rocha and Hells Bells.”

Favorite Stores: “Cinema and Virgo Boutique (vintage) in downtown L.A.”

How long does it take you to get ready for an event or concert?
“It usually takes me about an hour and a half for wardrobe, makeup, and hair. I usually do my own makeup though! I almost always have.”

Anything else in your closet that you can’t live without?
“I would have to say this really cool vintage Chanel jacket my fiancé just bought me. I love mixing in classic pieces.”

What are your favorite products from the CK One line?
“I love the three-in-one face makeup. I literally wear it every day, whether I’m at home or performing. It’s full-coverage without feeling cakey — that’s my big thing. I also don’t like to keep reapplying, so that’s what’s cool about it, too. I also really love the gel duo eyebrow pencils and the double-ended eyeliner. I love eyeliner.”

Any beauty secrets you live by?
“It’s definitely hard being on the road all the time and have to wear a lot of makeup on stage, but my mom drilled it into my head how important it is to wash your face every night — I’m obsessed with makeup wipes. I also drink a lot of water to keep my skin looking hydrated.”

How do you deal with all the attention from your fans?
“I embrace it. We celebrate each other. I love it. They like me, and I like them because they like me. We enjoy the same stuff.”

It seems as though you are constantly reinventing yourself through different hairstyles and colors. What’s the deal?
“I get bored easily. I love changing it up. I think one of the best things about being a female is playing up your makeup, clothes, and hair. We can evolve every day.”

Congrats on getting engaged! When’s the big day?
“We haven’t set a date, hopefully soon. While it seems kind of backwards, I did just purchase my wedding dress. It’s cream chiffon with black embroidery. Classic but a little bit untraditional, which I like.”

Have you ever had any major beauty blunders?
“Oh, yes! The first time I ever tried bleaching my hair in high school. I did it myself and didn’t leave it on long enough — so i’m sure you know how that goes. My hair was orange. I looked crazy!”

You’re so sugary sweet. How do you get into character to prepare for some of your more racier songs?
It’s funny… it’s like the makeup thing. I was always sort of a tomboy and a bit more reserved growing up. When I became a woman — especially when I became a mother — I felt like embracing all of my womanness. I feel sexy singing sexy songs. In turn, women feel sexy listening to my songs, so I guess we’re all feeling sexy together!”

They also took pictures of there time wit dev and created a slideshow with commentary which you can check out by clicking the link below.
