Next up in ‘Meet the Muse’ is the cute TP4Y member, Sterre Marith Tapilatu. Known for her beautiful voice and cool personality, this ‘Movement’ is definitely one to watch. Get to know Sterre a little better below, and enjoy her beautiful looks, styled in Denham, Roberto Cavalli and Vans.
Sterre, tell us about yourself.
Well hi! My name is Sterre.
I am a 17 years old girl from Groningen, but Amsterdam is pretty much my second home city.
I’ve got a weakness for beards, puppies and booties, I’m passionate about all kinds of things.. especially singing and dancing. My goal is to become my own Rihanna one day.
You can wake me up for American chocolate cookies. I’m a boss in losing all kinds of stuff, especially keys and ID cards. I have a twin brother, his name is Benjamin Boy.
I suck at love, my mind works on a way which makes relationships so much more difficult than it already is. But I do love love.
P.S. Yeah it’s a 17 years old talking about relationships and being in love, peace out.
How old were you when you realized that you wanted to pursue music as a profession?
Uhm.. I started to make jokes about it when I was about 12 years old.. That’s when I started to say things like: “I’m going to be famous anyways” on some kind of goofy way but I was actually dead serious.
When I decided to do audition for a new girl group, about 2 years ago, I was determined that I wasn’t going to accept any kinds of rejection. This would be my chance.
Are you still nervous before a gig?
Hmmm not really, at the moment that I get on that stage I feel like I can be anything I want to be.. Like the stage is one the most comfortable places for an artist. For example: I can twerk with my tiny little baby booty, while I’m almost breaking my back without feeling any kind of shame haha, isn’t that just wonderful.
Favorite artists at the moment?
Zayn Malik, Yuna, Rihanna, Kehlani, Beyoncé
+1000 other ones
Rihanna for sure! That would be the baddest tune evahhhhhhhh
What album do you currently have on repeat?
Beyoncé’s album ‘Lemonade’
I gotta be prepared for her show this Saturday!
Who or what are you currently inspired by?
Hmmm I’m kind of a Tumblr girl.. There’s where I get most of my fashion inspiration or ‘Impulsive things I could do’ inspiration.
Rihanna is also one my biggest inspiration, not only because of her bomb style but also because she wears everything she wants to wear.. And she wears it with so much confidence.
Seeing that made me realize: If she can.. I can too.
So that’s pretty much when I started to wear red lipstick to the swimming pool, pierce myself and go to school on high heels (poor parents hahaha)
Your first thought in the morning?
“OMG did I oversleep, did I oversleep?!?!”
Your ideal Saturday night?
Probably drinking wine with my best friends on a cozy balcony somewhere in Amsterdam with some candle light.. Sharing our secrets.. Underneath a sky full of stars.. While listening to some Soul music.
Which emoji best represents you?
What is your favorite dish?
Can’t choose, I like all kinds of food.
(Except for cheese..EW)
Describe your perfect day.
A day at the beach! On a beautiful sunny day.
That’s my defenition of ‘perfection’
Where do you want to be in the next five years?
I’m planning to conquer the world with TP4Y.
So in the next five years I want to make that happen.
