Kat made her debut on Hip Hop Squares last week, which you can watch (if you’re in the US) below. I’m still trying to get my hands on an internationally available version (I haven’t been able to watch it myself!) Also, MTV released this statement about the show’s debut.
MTV2’s debut of the original comedic-game show series “Hip Hop Squares” proved a winner last night as it became the highest rated P12-34 original series launch with a .39 and the most watched original series premiere among P12-34 in the network’s history.
On the social front, @MTV_2 and #HipHopSquares spurred conversation last night, becoming a trending topic nationally on Twitter and among the Top 10 most social programs for the night per Trendrr’s “Top 20 Cable” and the “Social Guide Series Report.”
Kat chatted with of Complex Magazine about Hip Hop Squares (which I’ve added new BTS shots from), her music and Perez Hilton as her muse:
So, how did you become involved with Hip Hop Squares?
They literally asked me to do it. At first I just thought it was like Hollywood Squares, then I realized they were doing the hip hop version. Here I am, this little pop girl and they stuck me right at the top, and I’m like the only girl in the episode or in any of the squares. I just thought it must be for comedic purposes that they threw me in there ’cause I’m in between like Fat Joe and DJ Khaled.
How would you describe your sound and your influences?
Industrial Pop, like marching band beats with strong vocals. Almost like militant-styled fashion mixed with ‘90s melody.
It seems like you’ve been working on your debut album for such a long time. For years! [Laughs.]
When can we finally expect that to drop?
Well, I know the label is thinking of dropping an EP in June and then after that we’ll start gathering tracks together. I want to record as much as I can so people get the best possible first look at me. We’re about like 40 songs deep right now, so at any moment we could literally drop an album, but we want it to get within the the lane of “Graffiti.” We want it to be competitive and we want it to be strong. We want it to be the best definition of me who I am as an artist.
MTV’s Hollywood Crush caught up with Kat at Wango Tango to talk about what’s next for her character and Nina Dobrev’s character, Elena. Spoilers for those that haven’t seen the finale.
“Oh well, I’m so excited,” Kat shared with MTV News earlier this week at Wango Tango. “I love Nina. I’m a huge fan of her. She works so hard and, as her friend, I get to see when she plays Katherine versus when she plays Elena. So it’s really great for me to be able to, I don’t know, I’m getting so excited to see what she’s going to do because it obviously has to be different than Katherine. And she’s definitely going to bring the vulnerability of Elena to it, and she’s gonna rock it out. I know she will.”
But it might not be just Elena who makes a move to the dark side. Kat shared that witchy Bonnie might also embrace that side of herself next season.
“Well, a lot of her decisions that she made in the episode ‘Before Sunset’ and the season finale were affected by, I think, the whole of season three and the things that happened and her making the statement that ‘I’m not gonna let you guys push me around anymore,’” she said. “So I think you’re gonna see an even stronger Bonnie, a more surprising Bonnie, a character that’s gonna make some decisions that are going to surprise people. And then I feel like a lot of people want to see a darker Bonnie. So we’ll see if they play with that. It’s amazing. I’m surprised. I thought that people wanted Bonnie to have a halo all the time. But if it’s justified than it’s never bad.”
