Karen O. Never Fit In

A.D. Amorosi of Philadelphia City Paper chatted with singer Karen O, who admits that growing up, she felt out of place in high school. “I never fit,” she says of her teen years — the private high school she attended, the clothes she wore. “I was punky. Yeah. I measured myself by how different I was to everyone around me. At the end of my senior year, I won the student poll for ‘Most Atypical.’ Me and some guy who was a graffiti artist who didn’t talk to anyone. So high school? No. Jersey suburbs? No. Never fit. But I was lucky because I had New York City at my doorstep.”
