Flavorwire Premiere: Talking Sweaty Balls and Candy with Elliphant on ‘Slumber Party at Emmie’s House’


Earlier this year, Flavorwire introduced you to Slumber Party at Emmie’s House, the delightfully ’90s-centric webseries from Emmie Lichtenberg. Now in its third season, Slumber Party at Emmie’s House features Lichtenberg playing Truth or Dare and getting cozy in her PJs with some of pop’s most promising young stars, including Charli XCX, Betty Who, Marina and the Diamonds, and Haerts. In the second episode of season three, which Flavorwire is pleased to premiere below, Lichtenberg gets to know Elliphant, the 29-year-old Swedish dance-pop singer and rapper who’s been touring stateside behind her One More EP with Charli XCX throughout the year.

Born Ellinor Olovsdotter, Elliphant is a name you should expect to see more and more in the coming months, thanks in part to her recent collaborations with Diplo, Skrillex, and MØ and signing to Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe label. She’s drawn comparisons to M.I.A., but the girl’s got range, at times channeling dupstep, dancehall, andTop 40’s current obsession with chilled-out electronics.

“I had been a fan of Elliphant for a while,” Lichtenberg tells Flavorwire. “I love her sound and attitude. After seeing her pee in the street during her “One More” video with MØ, I knew she had to be on my show! I hadn’t met her before doing the shoot, but she was on tour with my friend Charli [XCX], who said Elli was really cool and up for anything so I knew we would have a great time.”

Watch below, as the two talk about sweaty balls and Elliphant’s candy addiction, kiss some Trolls (the dolls, not the internet creeps), and give blindfolded makeovers. Sounds like every girl’s fondest middle-school sleepover memory, right?
