Muzik’s My Life Exclusive: Skylar Grey Performs Piano Medley, Talks ‘Tosh.0′ At Grand Rapids Meet-And-Greet
Muzik’s My Life: At this point in your career, do you consider music your life?
Skylar Grey: “It always has been my life. [Laughs] There’s never been anything else.”
Skylar Grey hosted an intimate meet-and-greet with fans today (September 22) at 104.5 WSNX in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter opened with a piano medley of her hits consisting of “Coming Home,” “Words I Never Said,” “I Need a Doctor,” and “Love the Way You Lie”. She remained seated for an impromptu Q&A session, fielding questions from staff and contest winners about her upcoming album Invinsible, collaborating with Marilyn Manson, and more.
I asked Skylar about her experience guest starring on Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 this past Tuesday, to which she responded, “Tosh… [Laughs] That was so random; I got a call to do Tosh. Yeah, that was really fun.”
After gauging her audience’s familiarity with the show, she continued, “So Tosh does these web redemptions, and he found this YouTube video of Eli Porter, a rapper who kind of went down in history for being…kind of terrible [Laughs], and gave him the opportunity on the show to redeem himself. So they got the school cheerleaders to dance around him on a golden throne and had me sing the hook for this hip-hop song. So we were on the season premiere a couple days ago. You can find it online; it’s quite funny. It’s like the worst lyrics in history; I did not write them. [Laughs]”
