Stars “Your Ex-Lover Is Dead” with Lily Du

The indomitable Lily Du (The President Show, Broad City) joins us in the 🎶stu-stu-studio🎶 to share with us her love of the Stars song “Your Ex-Lover Is Dead.” We talk with her about carrying songs through different relationships and periods of her life and how strongly she feels about the first two Stars albums despite not having many deep connections to music throughout her life.

Par for the course, we discuss the romance of Limp Bizkit, the importance of Christina Aguilera to young Asian-American girls, and how we discovered music when we were younger. This gets us thinking of music we forgot we used to like and how difficult karaoke is for Lily. While Lily’s parents restricted a lot of the music she may have listened to, she had much better luck with television and become a voracious consumer of TV pilots. This leads us to the story of how Lily became interested in acting and writing and we end the episode on the topic of making art despite the self-critic who may tell you it’s all been done before.

**Editors Note: At the top of the episode, Evan incorrectly references the Camp Cope song “Done” when he meant to say, “The Opener,” the first song from their new album, How to Socialise & Make Friends. Oops!
