There are so many different types of people in the world, and so there are many different types of women in the world, of course. Variety is the spice of life, and many people fall into categories in respect to their personalities, their culture, their willingness to try new things, their needs for security and love, etc… Kayden represents a group of women who don’t fit neatly into niches and categories, who take impromptu cross-country road trips to clear their head, who get into dancing jobs and can’t dance, who drive up to your door in a truck the size of a small house and then descend from said truck wearing a delicate summer dress with spaghetti straps and sandals. She is the kind of careful female with a big heart that probably finds herself constantly misunderstood in life, intermittently chasing adventure and then retreating into the cool recesses of her own mind for a comfort that can only come from a practiced meditation in knowing who you are. Kayden Kross is a lot like me.
I didn’t want to get too deep in this opening bit. It was fun talking to her, and I’d love to continue the conversation some day… maybe away from the camera. Some things are more interesting to talk about away from prying eyes, but I get the distinct feeling that there is a lot to this woman. A lot. And I apologize profusely if my skills at asking the right kinds of questions proves slightly unremarkable in the entertainment sense, but I’m still learning a lot, myself. And you know, just before I sit down, I’m a grip.
I was charmed to find that she is pretty well-rounded and, at the same time, self-effacing enough to trick you into thinking maybe she’s not. The effect is charming and disarming. A wonderfully complex combination. I do find that I am nervous for the first one-third of every interview, so far. I don’t know if it’s setting everything up, juggling all the, ‘Did I do this? Did I not do that?’ talk in my head, and then, of course, being naturally shy and dealing with all the whatnot that happens in between – my guess is that it is a little bit of all of it – but it takes about fifteen minutes for me to catch my breath and relax. She didn’t seem bothered by any of it. She indulged me by letting me pull out some Rorschach Test inkblots I’d printed from the internet and giggled kindly when I revealed the sinister interpretations that spring from my subconscious in seeing odd black and white shapes. Evil demon monkey, I think was one of them?? What can I say? I’m a sick bitch. Just kidding.
Thank you, Kayden, for being sweet to me while I sat there frumpy and timid. Thank you, Mike South, again for facilitating another great interview experience for me. And thank you, the viewer, for taking the time. – Lydia Lee a.k.a. Julie Meadows
