My conversation with writer, humanitarian, actress, and Canadian rock star icon Bif Naked, whose music and philosophy has made her into a profound source of inspiration for millions of fans. With classic hits like Spaceman, I Love Myself Today, and Daddy’s Getting Married, many fans of Bif (aka Beth Allen) will find her an engaging conversationalist who has no shortage of words to describe her indomitable view of the changing world around us.
We talked about her extraordinary powers of self-awareness which never allowed the media to dictate her image, breaking on the scene after the arrival of the Seattle grunge sound, the things in life that inspire her every day and night, her passion for human rights and social justice, why being an animal lover is a defining trait that continues to nourish her life, how a childhood filled with parental expectations molded her into a soul fighter, her love of baseball and the Blue Jays, and the existential feeling behind moving from Vancouver to Toronto after nearly three decades.
Be sure to check out Bif Naked (@bifnaked) on social media and visit her website at bifnaked.com. Her latest book is “I, Bificus – Song & Stories Tour” which looks back at her entire career and 10-album repertoire that will only further your understanding of why she’s been called the Princess of Punk, the Rock Goddess, and the Legend.
