Rosanna Gould

Over the course of one month I travelled through wind, rain and snow to visit 18 members of the all girl choir Gaggle in and around London. Rosanna Gould, was the 6th member to be visited.

Rosanna opened the front door of her parents East Finchley home, I enter, take off my shoes and head up to her bedroom. Rosanna Born and raised in London is a Milliner and sings in Gaggle.

When and how did you join Gaggle?
I’m one of the two most recent joiners; I joined in October last year. Some guy in a bar suggested we should be dubbed the ‘babygags’ but that just sounds horrible. Jana P is my Gaggle ‘sire’ – when she asked me if I wanted to be a Gaggle I had to pinch myself, I’d harboured secret fantasies about donning the Gaggle headdress since I first saw them.

What does your bedroom mean to you?
My bedroom… hmmm, it doesn’t really feel like my bedroom to be honest. I’ve recently moved back to my parents’ after ten years away from home. Most of the books and ‘objects’ in here are not mine. Some of them I appreciate, like my sister’s comic book collection. Other items are more random, like my mum’s only bridge trophy. Apart from my clothes, most of my own ‘things’ are in boxes in my studio.



What object in your bedroom particularly means something to you?
My grandmother’s necklace, I played with it when I was a child and she left it to me when she died.

What makes you happy?
Comfortable shoes, Cole Porter musicals, dialogue by Four Tet.IMGP6687
When did you last cry and why?
This morning, after failing to get Fleetwood Mac tickets.

What song do you always go back to?
Yes by McAlmont and Butler.

What is your favourite word?

If you could invite anyone into to your bedroom who would it be and why?
Winona Ryder circa 1988, just to hang out. We’d wear oversize blazers and listen to obscure indie.

What would you save if your bedroom were on fire and why?
I’d take the old photographs of my mother’s family in Trinidad, and my Elasticat-shirt.IMGP6697
Naked or bed clothes?
Definitely, naked.
