Jul 6th 2016 by Keltie_Knight • 23 Questions • 36 Points

Hi everyone! I’m Keltie Knight.

I'm an entertainment journalist who travels around the world interviewing the biggest celebrities like Oprah, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence and more for The Insider. I hang out on the biggest red carpets like The Oscars, Grammys, Emmy's and at The Met Gala. I know stuff:)

I also co-host The LadyGang Podcast every Tuesday with Becca Tobin and Jac Vanek where we discuss love, sex and womanhood.

EDIT: Thanks for playing along! BYE!

Ask me anything you want about life, celebs, dreams, or whatever else, and I promise to answer honestly!

Q:

How did you, Jac and Becca meet?

A:

Jac and I dated the same guy in the 2000's emo era. We were sort of pitted against eachother and then eventually met and I remember being like "wait....i like you." Becca and I have mutual friends from NYC.


Q:

Wait ... what KIND of female accident???

A:

it involved bleeding down my leg.


Q:

Hey keltie. First of all you're very beautiful and I love you. Second of all, have you ever met/interviewed Halsey? I don't know if you know this but she was a die hard panic! at the disco fan back in the day so...I think she might know you haha

A:

do you think she read my blog!?


Q:

What is the best dessert?

A:

a box of chips ahoy cookies dipped in icing from a jar, obvi.


Q:

What was your most powerful experience interviewing someone?

A:

100% meeting Oprah. Y'all, her skin feels like $900 hand creme and she smells like butter and is so soft, and when you are looking in her eyes it's like no one else matters.


Q:

Who has been your favorite LadyGang guest so far? Also, what is your favorite red carpet memory?

A:

my fav memory on the carpet is when Pharrell stopped my interview to look at the camera and tell my bosses I needed my own show and that i was a star. It seems stupid but I've always kept that with me!


Q:

what celebrity did you interview that you thought was going to be really sweet but turned out being a real B or D?

A:

One time Jake Gyllenhaal walked out of an interview with me. I always had a "celebrity crush" on him so I was bummed, but then I interviewed him years later and he was great so...who knows. Mostly, some of the stars you think are SO interesting turn out to be boring and that's a bummer.


Q:

What has been a harder job for you-being a dancer or being on tv/red carpet/interview celebs? Xo

A:

dancing was hard because you could be VERY good at what you were doing (ie. dancing for Beyonce) and still getting paid very little. However, you auditioned and knew where you stood with everyone. TV is hard for a different reason, you never see your competition audition so you don't really know what you are doing wrong or right.


Q:

What's the biggest lesson you've learned being in Hollywood?

A:

No one looks are pretty close up. AIRBRUSHING IS REAL GUYS.


Q:

Hi Keltie! Absolutely love hearing you on the LadyGang every week. If you had to choose, and it could be anything you wanted, what would be your Hollywood dream job?

A:

I would LOVE to host a travel show, because I love low budget adventures. I would LOVE to be on a panel talk show too.


Q:

How often do you get asked about Rockettes, Rockstars and Rockbottom? Follow up: do you feel removed from that part of your life?

A:

I get asked pretty much everyday but someone on the internet about my 20's and my RRR life. I stopped answering because my words always get twisted and it looks like maybe I'm holding onto something that I'm not. The truth is...2006-2010 was such a defining time for me. I learned how to be alone, fall in love, fall out of love. I remember one time my dance agent had put me up for a job, and my person had been so unsupportive of it, not willing to help. I can vividly remember standing in that kitchen thinking "Am i going to live the REST OF MY LIFE always being not good enough to this person?" I grew up SO much and i actually love reminiscing about that time because it makes me feel so strong. I've come a long way!


Q:

How often do you get asked about Rockettes, Rockstars and Rockbottom? Follow up: do you feel removed from that part of your life?

A:

This is gonna sound crazy but when I covered fashion week, I would see some of the models backstage, they are like 10 feet tall with really strange faces in person, and then in magazines they were the most interesting and beautiful looking humans- so it's all in the eye. What makes someone attractive or unattractive has a lot to do with confidence.


Q:

What's the funniest thing that happened while you were mid-interview?

A:

One time I had George Clooney and Julia Roberts record my outgoing voice memo and it was so funny but George said a swear word so his publicist told me i had to erase it.


Q:

What was the most ridiculous and sexiest dress you've seen on red carpet??

A:

omg! someone wore nipples out and a thong with some fishnet over it, I think it was at the Grammy awards.


Q:

What would be your best advice for someone who wants to be an entertainment journalist / tv presenter?

A:

create your own brand before you try to find a job. no one is going to hand you anything and if you can walk into a room and already have all your stuff together and basically proof that you will be a success, then it's easier to land the gig.


Q:

I love your interviews with Ed Sheeran, you two just seem like buddies. When he broke your lego grammy - LMAO! Who are your favorite celebs?

A:

fav celebs: Ed, Oprah, George Clooney makes me swoon, Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Chrissy Teigen


Q:

Keltie!!! I love listening to the podcast every Tuesday while I run, so in honor of the podcast, who (besides your husband) would you do #thejac with?

A:

I want to do #thejac with #jac.


Q:

When did you realise that you're a celebrity?

A:

i realized I was on the D-list when people started sending me free clothes.


Q:

What's the hardest thing you've ever had to do?

A:

wake up every morning for 4 years at 4:30 am and not try to strangle people all day.


Q:

I recently saw Michael Yo perform standup and he was hilarious!

What is he like to work with?

A:

was he funny? he always tells me he is funny but i don't see it :) Yo is fun, he's very calm and kind. He's like my partner in crime.


Q:

Keltie! I'm such a fan! Do you have any new books in the works?!

A:

hi! and thank you! i don't have any books in the works but my 5 year plan involves two books, a health book and a funny celebrity story book. which one should I do first?


Q:

What are one or two of your beauty hacks? Or life hacks? Or food hacks. Or whatever.

A:

beauty hack: a spray tan can fix everything life hack: a phonecall from mom can fix everything food hacks: a giant sparkling water can fix everything


Q: 1 I used a quote of yours from your blog back in your dancing days for my senior quote. Love you! 2 thank you for the podcast, more more more!

What is your dream career in a perfect world?

A:

IN A PERFECT WORLD: I get to sleep until noon, someone brings me a healthy and comforting breakfast, I get my hair and makeup done, and I go do 1 hour of prep and a 1 hour live show and then go to yoga and snuggle my dog. (that is NOTHING LIKE MY LIFE NOW!)
