Damaged / Goods: What led you to pursue a career as a DJ and a model?
 

Rebecca L'Amore: A lot of different blessings led me to where I am today. Since I was 13, everyone always said I should be a model. I grew up in a strict household where vanity/modeling was frowned upon, although I truly felt as though it was my calling. My parents wanted me to go to University and get a degree first prior to modeling, which I did. I was discovered in Boston when I was 20 by Serge Safar. My first gig was hair modeling for SAFAR salon's billboards. They chopped off all of my long dark brown wavy hair and dyed it jet black. I then got signed to Model Club Inc. in Boston. Depressed by the 5 feet of snow and cold weather, I eventually relocated to Los Angeles to join my music producer, Stelio Marshall (a.k.a. Stel Leo a.k.a. The Renaissance Mane). Shortly after relocating to LA, I got signed to M Model Management.

With regard to DJing, I started party planning while attending the University of Rhode Island. I was in a sorority in college and was always subconsciously controlling the music in the house by creating playlists. My friends used to call me 'DJ Princess Beckles'. I'm not really sure why. With regard to party hosting and planning, I always felt like I wanted more control, but felt stifled by the fact that I was a female. At the time, there were pretty much no female DJs in America. When I moved to Los Angeles, my producer bought the Pioneer CDJ-XRX DJ software and I started to play around with them at exclusive house parties that we would have at our apartment. It came so naturally to me. I think it's because I'm never not listening to music. I'm literally addicted to sound. My father was a former radio DJ in college, so DJing is also in my blood. 

As a DJ, it also helps that I'm a model, because my following from fashion/commercial stints contributes to the audience that I'm able to reach. I am never a tacky DJ, though. You won't catch me with rhinestone headphones or any of that bullshit. If you know good music, then you know. 


Damaged: How did you come up with your stage name Princess Cyberspace?


Rebecca: While living in Boston, I was modeling and working in mobile technology amongst a bunch of (primarily dude) techies. Originally, I intended to create a fashion blog to showcase my unique style while working in the tech world. So, I tried a bunch of different name combinations, and Princess Cyberspace kind of just came to me. I liked the alliteration of it, and the URL, Instagram, Soundcloud, and Mixcloud were available, so that was that. I'm a total nerd but luckily I'm a pretty nerd. Multiple people have said that I'm “like a beautiful alien.” The world is so fucked up right now that I feel like it's cool to be out of this world. Tech stars are the new rock stars, and it is time for Hollywood to realize that.
