Tay Jardine (We Are The In Crowd) Comments on Kerrang! "Hottest Female" Nomination
We Are The In Crowd received two nods this year (kinda). One for "Best Single" and one for "Hottest Female."
Vocalist Tay Jardine has commented on her nomination from the UK magazine, which can be found below.
Don't forget, you can catch the New York pop/rock quintet on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. Dates and ticket information can be found here.
"As flattering as it is, being nominated for Hottest female has always made me feel weird, haha. “Being hot” is not why I do what I do, I do it to share my music and my life with anyone that will listen. No one dislikes being complimented about their appearance but I really believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin because of who they are and what they stand for over anything else. I’m not trying to scoff at the nomination or boycott it (I’m looking at you tumblr journalists!) I just want to offer a little bit of insight into my life.
To be honest though, I’m much more proud of being nominated for the work my friends and I have done, which is why I’m really excited that we’re being recognized for our single as well. We worked very hard on “The Best Thing (That Never Happened) and I lost my breath when I found out our fans in the UK felt it was worth winning an award. THAT means everything to me, thank you so much for believing in us and for the nominations, you should feel as proud as we do because you’re ALL a part of what WATIC and I accomplish."
