Nova Rockafeller Talks Her Gathering Experience
What is life like as a female rapper at the Gathering Of The Juggalos? LA Weekly spoke with Canadian rapper Nova Rockafeller about her Gathering Of The Juggalos experience.
Well, of course I was kind of terrified. All the violence that’s happened there in the past, you have Tila Tequila. On the Internet, I look like a pop artist, you know what I mean? I just didn’t know what I was walking into. I was scared I was going to walk into a unsafe situation. I’m onstage on front of hundreds of people who aren’t scared to admit that, if they don’t like you, they’ll just throw bottles at your face. We all saw what happened to Tila Tequila.And then their [Gathering of the Juggalos informercial] video came out and they describe me as “Nova Rockafeller and her sexy ass,” and I saw that as a red flag. I had people on the Internet warning me to be careful. The more people would warn me, it would kind of make me angry. So, I went in to just be myself with all my best songs. I wasn’t taking any break with any slow things. I did a 40-minute set of double-time rap because nobody’s throwing bottles at me. And with Juggalos, if you win them over once, you win them over for life. I can use that kind of fan base, you know?
