So BILLBOARD recently sat down with 2NE1's CL to do a little interview where CL gibbed the gab and talked about 2NE1's future plans, shit like that.
She then happened to mention that she's planning a solo debut with a full album after 2NE1 makes their comeback sometime in (as of right now apparently) April.
Interesting. Pretty ballsy of her to debut with a full album rather than a small little single or mini album, especially since it means a more significant investment from YG's part. Don't let the "Papa YG" or "YG Family" act fool you, Yang Hyun Suk is a very shrewd man and for him to gamble on a CL solo means CL's gettin' the D or he's got something weird planned in the works. There's still a yet-to-debut YG SNSD, Taeyang solo, GD solo (part 2), Psy comeback and Gummy 10-year-anniversary celebration all lined up in some form or other. I don't know how that fits into the YG master schedule (l0l wat schedule, lbr), but time will tell.
At any rate, CL promises us that it'll be good shit she's going to spit. So good in fact, it'll be the next Asian feminist anthem.
While she said 2NE1 influences the world, CL hopes to change stereotypes regarding Asian women. “I want to represent Asian women. I want to break that typical Asian female stereotype. There’s this standard where they’re all calm,” she says excitedly. “I want to break that. I want to tell the world that there are some badass Asian female girls and that we can be cool. That we’re nothing different. I want to break that standard and stand up for all the girls.”>badass Asian female girls
>Asian female girls
Goddamn it CL, I thought YOU were supposed to be the fluent English speaker. l0l
