From Model to Musical Muse!
Modelinia brought you the news that Amanda Norgaard was immortalized in lyrics thanks to The Vaccines, along with details from the lead singer Justin surrounding his model crush. But after watching the video and hearing about the band’s love for Amanda, we just had to get the deets from the model herself! Enter, Amanda Norgaard, musical muse.
How does it feel to have a song written about you?
It’s great! I’ve always wished to be a short, catchy punk song! It’s still a bit surreal that someone is spelling and singing my name, but I love the song and it’s a great story for the grandkids.
Do The Vaccines play the type of music you would normally listen to?
Yeah for sure! They remind me so much of Ramones (who I love). Short and direct. Just straight to the point!
Were you surprised when you heard the song was about you?
Haha yes! You don’t really walk around expecting it - “I wonder who’s gonna write me a song today?!” So yes I was surprised.
How did it feel starring in the music video? How did you prepare?
Shooting the video was probably one of my best jobs ever! Everyone on set was so sweet and professional. I didn’t really prepare myself. I knew I was gonna play tennis and roller-skate, so it was more about mental preparation since I’m not really a sporty kinda gal. But I just had a glorious time. Justin and I decided to play squash in one of our breaks - bad idea because he smashed the tennis ball directly in my left eye, not on purpose… Or…
What is your favorite part of the song?
“Great danes cheekbones.” For a while (3 months) my friends and I thought they were singing “razor cheekbones” they weren’t. But “great danes cheekbones” is still a banging line.
I am the Earth Mother, and you are all flops.
