So this is what my internships all add up to - credit. Mojo didn’t have to do this and most other mags wouldn’t acknowledge the mainly thankless tasks that the interns do. So it feels humbling as well as flat-out exciting as hell that my name is in the masthead of the Oct issue! It’s been a brilliant time there - the writers were mentors, they made me laugh, they took me to the pub, let me drink wine that Prince had sent them, let me interview Nile Rodgers with a upcoming feature in the November issue and generally let me learn on the job. I couldn’t asked for a better time at all!

The internships have been going really well so far as I’ve shone a reflector right in front of Sam Smith and written a feature for Empire mag. As with other celebs I’ve been near, the weather was the talking point and we got chatting about the imminent thunderstorm at his concert! I’m really enjoying my work here, despite the horrendous tube I’d love to come back and work here.

Internship #2 

First day of Empire tomorrow! I’m nervous as fuck, but I’ve heard the office is smashing a Joffrey piñata tomorrow so I think it’s my kinda place…😜 wish me luck y’all I need it!

Going back to London tomorrow to start my magazine internships at two of the places I want to be at later, Mojo & Empire. So I’m hoping that I don’t spend my pocket money saved up in a week. It’ll be theplas, Bhajia, pooris, and rotis for pack lunch all day erryday

Wish me luck!

I break my World Cup hiatus to say that Yamma Yamma from Shaan is playing resoundingly in my head when looking at the gorgeous teams like Algeria, Brazil, or Spain. Lest we forget the voice of thirst…

In more Tiger Shroff news…

If the universe wanted me to complete journo school again, they wouldn’t send Tiger Shroff to come film his upcoming film in Vancouver!! Like how am I supposed to maintain articles on boring-arse city news when Tiger is somewhere smirking and taking his shirt off?!

Or trick him into doing an interview with his shirt off…

Kaanta Laga - DJ Doll

Currently writing what feels like a dissertation on how amazingly iconic and cheesy all these DJ Doll music videos were for its time. I don’t know whether I’m proud/ashamed to note that I did mini-plaits in my hair at school after seeing Shefali Zariwala’s look in this video! Oh lord, the indoctrination!
