So, I just happened to step out to the store for a minute for snacks, and who do I run into?…Justin Vivian Bond!!! We had a quick chat, and she told me how much fun she had being interviewed by Lina Bradford,on her new YouTube show In The Dollhouse With Lina. For those of you not in the know, Lina is a super famous Disco and House Music DJ on the international level, most known for her long-running Fire Island party Twirlina at Sip-N-Twirl, her new residency TBS (Throwback Sundays) at The Gilded Lily in NYC, and her infectious smile, dance moves and spirit. Now she’s putting her quick wit (formerly known as Girlingo…yes, she has her own language), music prowess, and pop culture knowledge to better use with a talk show, musing with all her celeb friends. The first episode, shot in Lina’s Barbie doll room (She has over 600!), features singer-songwriter and performance artist Mx Bond, giving us insight into her inspiration for her iconic cabaret act Kiki and Herb, and some of her fave bands/singers. Check out full episode below.

“[In The Dollhouse] is about all the fun little quirky things that my friends who know me as Lina [see]…but other people only see me as a torso behind a DJ booth. They’ll get to see this other side of me that they never got to see. There’s a lot of people who only know me from [Fire] Island, but I was feeling, ‘who is Lina now?’ That was my moment that happened over the winter. When you meet Lina, it’s Lina…and a whole lot more!”
