(...)Do you have a stylist who dresses you for public appearances / concerts or do you take care of that yourself?

CI : I wear a lot of second hand clothes unless I have a concert and then I wear beaded and sequined second hand clothes. No stylist dresses me although I do have a woman that assists me with the buttons.
