The singer took to Twitter to post an open letter responding to criticism that she’s seemed “bitchy” or “bummed out” on stage of late.
“When I started Best Coast I was 23 years. I was awkward, I was confused, I had 0 idea how to carry myself. I am now a few months away from turning 29 and I can honestly say that I feel the most confident I have every felt in my life,” she wrote.
She further explained that she’s a different person now and just because her stage banter has lessened it doesn’t mean she’s in a bad mood.
“If you yell something at me about cats and I don’t respond I’m not pissed – I just simply don’t feel like talking about cats in that current moment.”
Best Coast have come along way since their debut Crazy For You which featured a cat on the cover. The band released their third album California Nights this year, unveiling a distinctively mature sound.
They are due to touchdown in Australia next month for Splendour In The Grass and a few sideshows. If you find yourself missing Cosentino’s cat-quips at those shows she’s got some advice for you – “go on YouTube and find plenty of videos of me talking about cats and weed.”
