You saw them in the video – but what do we really know about the strategists behind Edipus Concert? That’s where we come in.

We recently sat down with the two powerhouses and asked them some really tough questions. Who do they prefer: Lady GaGa or Beyoncé? Are they coffee addicts or tea sippers? What’s their astrological sign?

Luckily these women are always on their toes and weren’t the least bit intimidated by our ruthless albeit feckless inquisition.

Are you more of an Introvert or Extrovert?
Definitely an extrovert.  I know so many introverts and that’s not me…LOL!

An Interpreter (Too bad I can’t speak another language fluently).

I only speak “broken” Spanish

A little teapot.  I love my tea!

Lady GaGa or Beyonce?
Lady GaGa.

Fall. I love my warm sweaters and blankets.

Nope.  I tried learning to play the piano once…didn’t get past learning Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Paris.  I would visit every year and never get tired of seeing it.

‘Fly me to the moon’ or ‘no thanks, I like Earth’?
Fly me to the moon.  I need to get away from it all.

As by Stevie Wonder.  Everything by Stevie puts me in a good mood, but this song is my favorite.

West Coast, of course.  I’ve traveled the country and nothing beats the West.

My gut says introvert, but I do get energized by other people, so maybe I’m an extrovert, too.

I’d love to give songwriting a try. In fact, I wrote a couple when I was 15.

I need my coffee! First thing. Strong.

Lady GaGa or Beyonce?
Gaga — I love how she’s evolved over the years.

Yes, piano and some very basic guitar.

I have always wanted to visit Ireland and Italy… but I also prefer road trips to cool spots here in California!

Fly me to the moon! Why not??

Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra

I was asked to share my story on this site because Janis is a friend of mine and I trust her. I haven’t talked about this in a long time and I feel like it’s still so new even though it happened almost twenty years ago. I was raped by someone I thought I could trust but he turned out to be a liar. I still can’t talk about the details and this isn’t a place to do so anyway but I will say that Edipus makes me feel hopeful. It’s taken me years to understand that all men do not rape. Every man that I see is not my future rapist and doesn’t want to hurt me. I would love to see men at this concert because I know so many other survivors of rape who still aren’t convinced that men care but they want to be. I hope men come to this and I hope some celebrity has the courage so say something. Rape isn’t easy to get over but the wounds don’t have to be so fresh.
