We here at Flirty and Dirty had the amazing chance to catch up with Keatyn. Let’s find out a little about Keatyn’s World.
We at Flirty and Dirty want to raid your closet!!! We love your style. Tell us, who is your favorite clothing designer and or shoe designer?
That’s a really hard question. I’m sort of all over the place. I love Jimmy Choo shoes, Proenza Schouler handbags, have a lot of Free People, Alice + Olivia, Alexander Wang, Urban Outfitters. I’m kind of excited about where my new school is located. I get to dress for fall! I got a gorgeous Burberry leather-trimmed trench coat, the most adorable bright yellow Hunter wellies. I really don’t stick to certain brands. I order a lot online. Shopbop.com is my favorite. And I love Barneys. Barneys shoe department=heaven.
We know you are just settling into your new life and all but we are gonna ask you a tough question… Are you worried that Vincent will be able to find you? … You just seem so calm about all this. Sorry we know this is a sensitive question.
I’m really not that calm about it. I’m a wreck inside. And I’m very worried he will find me. But after what happened with my little sister, I had to do what I did. I had to listen to Garrett, who is an expert at all this. I don’t think it’s going to be easy at all. I’ve been told that Vincent hasn’t given up. He’s been (okay, so I shouldn’t tell you this because it’s actually in the next book, so, shhhh…) at my school. He’s following Cush around. He even danced with Vanessa at a club. All those things make my skin crawl. I hated leaving my friends, especially Cush, without saying goodbye, but I want them to be safe. I want me to be safe too.
Was there absolutely no way to let Cush know you were okay and that you love him? You just got him back… how are you feeling about all that? Are you really in love with him? You are crushin’ on the god of all HOTTIES. I mean we get why… but Cush- sorry we have a soft spot for him.
I feel bad about Cush too. Am I in love with him? Really truly in love with him? Probably not. I thought I was. In that perfect moment at my party, I felt like I finally figured everything out. That he was the one. And I just said it. I probably shouldn’t have. And I know I kinda have a thing for shoes, but HE GAVE ME BOOTS! The. perfect. boots. He said the perfect things. But I was not at all over B when I said it. I just sort of blurted it out.
But then I came here. Kicked a soccer ball at the hotties’ head. And BAM! It was like lightning or something. I think I believe in love at first sight. Do you? Mom and Tommy fell in love right away. I definitely fell in love with B when I first met him, but that ended up being….hell, I don’t even know what we are. We broke up, but then I slept with him before I left. I know, don’t judge. I sort of thought it was breakup sex. But lately he acts like it was makeup sex. He really confuses me. All his talk about fate. I personally would like to kick fate’s ass right about now.
So um… Damian. He’s hot! How come you and him never hooked up. He’s cute, he’s good to you and gets you and he’s a rockstar!!! What’s not to want?
Awww, I love Damian. He is a good friend. He’s the kind of friend I can go months without talking to, but the minute we’re back together it’s like no time has passed. And he has gotten super cute lately. He’s not quite a rock star yet, but I think he will be someday. I hope he will be. It’s really his dream. Not the rockstar part so much, but to make music that lots of people want to listen to. His voice, it’s oh so dreamy. But we grew up together. He feels more like my brother. I can’t imagine kissing him. I think it would just feel wrong. But he’s adorable and I hope he finds the perfect girl for him.
So enlighten us cuz we just aren’t getting it… Why the heck do you put up with Vanessa. She’s more harm than good. You are gorgeous, popular (and not cuz of your mom) and your smart. What exactly is her hold on you?
Honestly, I think the hold that most mean girls have on people is their lack of confidence. I lacked confidence around her for a long time. I was afraid she would tell everyone about something I thought was embarrassing. (Not having sex with Sander.) Everyone thought we were the perfect couple. I liked being the perfect couple. And then when I tried to break free of her. To make my own group of friends, I kinda turned into a bitch. I didn’t want that either. And you know what happened with Mandy. Truth is, it is easier to let Vanessa deal with that stuff. And I’m really not gorgeous. I do get good grades, but I really I don’t know why I was popular. Is it because of my mom? Because of my relationship with Sander? Because I hung out with Vanessa? I don’t really know. I don’t really think I’m all that special. Like my mom, she just shines whenever you are around her. I don’t think I have that shine.
Ok, we have to know cuz I’m (Denise) a Cush girl and Nicola is a B girl… (whispering the question) who’s better in bed? We promise we won’t tell anyone.
That’s like comparing a Jimmy Choo to a Christian Louboutin. They are both good shoes. They are also different. Cush was more of a wham, bam, thank you ma’am kind of guy. Steamy, hot, and usually fast. He was maybe more concerned about making himself feel good. Brooklyn was sweet and adorable. He’s the kind of guy that cares more about making you feel good. You know he’s into karma and all that shit. His philosophy of give good karma and you will get good karma in return definitely fits his sexual style. I’d say B was also definitely more romantic. He quoted me poetry for gosh sakes! He would write our names in a heart in the sand. You know how it is. The guy your with always seems great until he does something to break your heart.
So we know things didn’t exactly work out with B couple wise. Do you regret your summer with him? Would you change anything regarding B?
I’ll never regret anything with B. He was my first real love. We had the most amazing summer together. I think part of me will always love and care about him. Even though Cush was super hot and sexy, I still wish B would have been my first. I think we choose boys like we choose outfits based on the weather. With everything that was going on at school, B was the relaxed, calm, chill kind of guy that I craved. He helped balance me. It will be interesting to see how going on the surfing tour will affect him. I have a feeling he might like the spotlight once he’s in it.
You have such a flare for fashion and you love music and dancing, have you considered a career in the fashion or music industries?
I told Damian if he ever does a video, I want to be in it! I do love fashion, but I really think I want to act.
And a random question cuz we just love our music— what’s currently on your iTunes playlist?
Of course lots of Twisted Dreams, but right now, Breathe by He is We, is my favorite song. After everything that happened, it’s sorta become my theme song. I listen to it a lot. It kinda makes me cry sometimes. Other times it sort of gives me confidence. After the incident, I felt like there was no air for me to breathe. Like I was being strangled. I also am apparently good at faking it because no one can tell all that’s going on inside me. The lyrics really resonate with me. But at school, I feel safer and like I can finally breathe again.
I have a playlist for songs that go with the first book here: Stalk me playlist.
The last song on the playlist is Only One by Sammy Adams. I adore that song. It reminds me of a certain boy 🙂
