Interview: Sky Ferreira on Why Men Just Don’t Get It
By Radio.com Staff
When Sky Ferreira goes on tour she usually needs a medic.
Last year, when she hit the road with Smith Westerns and later Vampire Weekend, she was having trouble with her voice. For seven months, the doctors told her it was bronchitis, but it turned out that it was actually a nodule on her vocal cords that later turned into a hemorrhage. “I never had an opportunity to take a break,” she said. “It’s kind of like if you break your arm, it needs time to heal. It was basically like playing basketball with a broken arm.”
Ferreira’s voice is completely healed now, but that doesn’t mean she can’t find a way to hurt herself. While on tour with Miley Cyrus, Ferreira cut herself so bad that she needed 60 stitches. Not that Ferreira even noticed, as she explained later on Instagram alongside a photo of her with a bandaged leg and a sheet over her head. “I just figured it was some blood,” she wrote. She even managed to finish her set, chalking it up to “#ThePowerOfAdrenalin.”
