Champagne, Amanda


What does Scotch & The Fox mean to you?

It’s a safe place within the masses of the interwebs for ladies to be vulnerable.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less:

Ambitious, nostalgic, smart, warm, sassy

What's playing in your car/iPod right now?

SZA, Prince- The Hits/The B-Sides, whatever my 15 yr old brother wants to listen to

Tell us about the last dream you remember having.

I have apocalyptic dreams…constantly. Lately I’ve been having one å la “The Impossible” (based on the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in Thailand) where I’m married to Justin Timberlake (love u, don’t forget our anniversary dinner this Friday) and we are running around on the beach like lunatics while a massive wave is just waiting to exhale on our sorry asses. That’s pretty much all I ever remember.

If you were a nail polish, what would your name be?

I’m gonna steal Butter London’s ‘Come to bed red’. Oh god. So suggestive! But it’s seriously the best red ever.

How have you grown as a woman in the past 5 years?

5 years ago I was 18 and very mold-able. I’ve learned more about myself in regards to my stances on a lot of things, what I shouldn’t put up with when it comes to the male species, and where I want to go with my life (at least the next 24 hours of it).

You're throwing your dream dinner party. 6 people dead or alive can come. Who's on the list?

My late grandma Mary, Oprah, Josephine Baker, Anthony Bourdain, my fairy godmother Mariah Carey, and Prince.

What's your go-to outfit?

Some type of leather bottom, t-shirt, sneakers

You're president for a day. What's the first issue you tackle?

Justice-also trying to explain to people that constitutions n such written by old white dudes with wooden teeth isn’t the best idea…

What's on your pizza?

Gimme a margherita and a full jar of red pepper flakes.

Why is champagne your drink of choice?

It’s mystifying. You’d think it comes from some heavenly and golden location but Reims is comparable to a sleepy town in good ole Minnesota. And it makes my nose tingle.

What's your favorite thing about MPLS?

It’s just so damn accessible.
