Vanessa Bayer’s “Sound Advice” web series is “Between Two Ferns” for musicians, a satiric take on vapid sit-down interviews. And while the SNL actress hasn’t reached the staggering levels of success of her bearded contemporary, Bayer (playing host Janessa Slater) still pulls in some big names.
St. Vincent was the latest artist to visit the set. She deflects Bayer’s needling questions with a bemused indifference, discussing her stage name, the advantages of inciting a scandal (“maybe you stole a beer, you thought it was two for one but that promotion had ended and you didn’t realize it”), and protocol on tipping hotel staff.
Watch the video above, and revisit St. Vincent’s classic “Cheerleader” video below.
