5 things not many people know about me….
1. I have 8 piercings in total!

3. I was a puppy in my past life…I think a Chihuahua.
4. I cannot stand the sound of people eating/chewing food, it sends shivers down my spine.
5. I like to have my nightly baths at 1am when everyone else is asleep and the world seems silent.

#crazysexycool can you tell I was obsessed with TLC when I was a kid?
Can you tell us what one of your tattoos mean?
On the back of my calves I have the phrase “Well behaved women, seldom make history” this quote is important to me as a feminist I believe we are always being told to behave and to stay quiet but I won’t be silent and I promise to be a voice for the many women who feel they don’t have a voice.
I love Asian cuisine, Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese are favourites but they must be Vegan because I love all beings equally
1. She is always right.
2. In the words of Missy Elliot “Get Ur Freak On”.
3. Those who laugh together, stay together.
4. What’s hers is hers and what’s yours is hers.
5. Start and end each day with a kiss.
Best and worst chat up line you ever heard?
Hmm they are all bad but a memorably terrible one was “Is your skirt made of mirrors? Coz I can see myself in it?” Yes, a dude really thought that would work….facepalm.
Stellar Addiction are a 5 piece rock band from Sydney. Founded by the bands drummer Tanya Carboni in late 2011, Stellar Addiction was originally formed as a short term project for the purpose of entertaining friends at a party.
The band name came from Carbon’s addiction to setting her sights on what some would say was “unachievable”. This addiction certainly paid off for Stellar in 2013 landing the band with a killer line up of musical talent with a rich on and off stage chemistry.
Fronted by the roaring vocals of Stacey Abdilla, Stellar Addiction delivers a sound that takes you back to the raw punk days of No Doubt, blended with the modern punk/pop styling’s of Paramore & topped off with all the attitude of P!NK. Abdilla’s gritty rock growl, reminiscent of Janis Joplin, has certainly become the signature of the band. With soaring guitar melodies provided by Michael Gimeos and Goldwyn Tagud, complimented by OJ De Paz holing down solid bass lines and tasteful beats and double kicks from drummer Tanya Carboni; Stellar Addiction deliver a contagious sound that will have you humming along in just seconds.
With Stellar’s recent success of their debut single release “Second On Your Mind” clicking over 25,000 views on YouTube in just 3 months, 2014 will see the band touring, releasing a second single “The Promise” and a full album by the end of the year.
