When not mistaken for being Asian, she frequently finds herself tweeting politically outspoken comments, trying to be be as non-basic on Instagram as possible, stalking DJs on Soundcloud and finishing 25 hour-long episodes on Netflix in 24 hours.

While on the red carpet, in between teaching everyone in sight how to “dab” and being their typical Diplo and Skrillex-y selves, they stopped for an interview with E! correspondent Terrance J.
