Those who have ever bothered to become acquainted with the works of the magic of the singer LP, was irrevocably in love with her amazing charisma, emancipation and fascinating game now popular on the ukulele tool. Her real fans have stopped to wonder whether LP a woman or a man, because, in fact, the talent is obvious, and this is important!
For starters, it is worth noting that the alias LP stands for Laura Pergolizzi (Laura Pergolizzi). Perhaps this fact should definitely answer the question whether the soloist of group LP a man or a woman. But not so simple, because in society tend to focus on external data sometimes it is so easy to make a mistake in the gender of someone, especially celebrities.
Laura was born in 1981 in long island. In 1996, an energetic girl graduated from high school and moved to new York to become a star. As the daughter of an Opera singer, she knew how to get into this business and created a unique alias. Woman or man, LP made their way fame, not fearing any prejudice from the society, and openness to the world has enabled her to build her stairway to heaven.
The Beginning of her creative path was marked by participation as a soloist in such groups as the Lionfish and The Plan. For some time she was a guest vocalist in the band Cracker. 2001 was the year of the release of her debut solo album Heart-Shaped Scar ("Scar in the shape of a heart”). Her album immediately soared up the charts, and the song Kiss It All Goodbye (“the last kiss") was used in the drama “the Security of things’.
The Song "Gibraltar-Labrador" Vyacheslav Butusov became known to the General public in 1997. She became part of the sound track of the famous film by Alexei Balabanov, "Brother 2". Today it listens to the second generation of fans of Russian rock. In...

In 2004, remaining an Enigma to the press, (male or female?) LP has presented the second album, Suburban Sprawl &Alcohol (“Province and alcohol”). Many rumors went around records presents album, because the song Darkside (“Dark side”) was the result of collaboration between LP and Linda Perry, a songwriter and singer. Stimulated journalists tried to find out who sings it – male or female? LP is not very spread at the expense of his personal life, but the fact that Linda Perry is a lesbian, no one was left. Immediately showered the assumption that Laura is also “girls”. However, the star decided to leave a touch of mystery in his manner. Preferring not to clarify who she likes and who she is, man or woman, LP never gave an official comment on the matter.
Start the zero and the beginning of Teens were devoted to participation in various shows, competitions and events, touring in different cities. 2014 was marked by the release of the long awaited third album called Forever for Now (“the Infinite now”). Their fans pleased with the Laura album Death Valley (“Valley of death”).
Despite the fact that in America, the popularity of Laura won in 2012, Europe became acquainted with her work just after the release of the song Lost on you, this song resonated with many people and from Russia. This remarkable man beckons all – a mind-blowing curly hair, androgynous appearance and aesthetics of the performed style. Here, rather, was a plus, that it was not clear who sings, the man or woman.
LP, Lost on you fulfilled, this track has captured the hearts of many fans of pop-rock music. Thanks to such performers people start to appreciate the purely human qualities and talent, not paying attention to his/her sexual identity.
As recently became known through Frank clips, Laura really is a girl, only she gravitates towards the female sex. Her relationship with her parents was somewhat strained, so she never told her mother that she was a lesbian. Her mother died, and his father, who considered her tendencies of an adolescent whim, resigned to this fact. However, as Laura says, her parents never criticized and positively perceived by all its decisions.
Laura won him millions of audience not only their records, but the acoustic version, which she represented in hotels, clubs, etc.
It is Noteworthy that LP career began with writing songs of popular performers. So, on account of its number of songs for Christina Aguilera and Rihanna.
Beautiful People (‘Beautiful people") - this song was written in collaboration with Nicole Scherzinger to Christina Aguilera in her rustic cabin in the mountains. Laura also wrote that this collaboration seemed to her such a surreal and “damn funny”, as the two lolled in the warm chambers flat and composed, wrote…
Speaking about his style, Laura emphasizes that enlists the aid of experienced stylists, just acts on a whim, all natural and relaxed.
However your style she has perfected throughout his career, and is still the singer strives to achieve maximum reflection of the internal state through appearance.
Black sun glasses – an indispensable attribute in the image of LP, so is she, according to her, not onlyimitate Roy Orbison, but also tries to protect itself from this reality, because they are still afraid of the immensity of the world, ready to overthrow her from the pedestal of glory at any moment. One can only hope that it will be able to overcome this phobia and widely and boldly look into the eyes of passers-by and to enjoy every day.
It is always ready to make fun of his unusual appearance, it does not hurt digs and gossip about her orientation, which showered on her from people limited by stereotypes.
As she said in an interview, Laura is quite happy at the moment their way. Every time he comes onstage, she feels in him "at ease". Prosperity touched all the spheres of her life, and we can only rejoice that the personal life and singing career only get better.
Comparing photos of Laura Pergolizzi at the beginning of her career (her debut on the professional stage took place in 1998, the first album was released in 2001) and modern pictures of the singer, it is not possible to detect radical changes. The same mischievous almond-shaped eyes, a clear arch of the eyebrows, an upturned nose and a short upper lip barely covering the upper teeth. A typical teenage image, but you can easily understand that the girl in the photo is a girl. Having "groped" her style in her youth, Laura brought it to perfection, that is, she achieved what she wanted, namely, the maximum correspondence of the external appearance and internal state. Today, according to LP, she is comfortable in "her own skin", in life and in creativity.
Firstly, completely abandoned cosmetics. In her opinion, this helped her to focus attention on the eyes – they, against the background of white skin, began to look brighter and deeper. The singer feels better if she shuts herself off from the world – hence her love for sunglasses, with which she practically does not part.
Secondly, I got rid of the roundness of the oval of the face that took place. Perhaps her face became more elongated due to weight loss, but experts do not rule out that the singer changed the contour of her face by inserting an implant into her chin, or corrected its line with contour plastic surgery.
Thirdly, the singer has fallen in love with herself and is not afraid to be ugly – she has a rich facial expression, which means a lot of wrinkles. However, LP makes faces in front of the camera, letting the public know that she peacefully coexists with her nasolabial folds, crow's feet and puppet wrinkles and is not going to get rid of them either with Botox or with the help of hyaluronic fillers.
In an interview, Laura says that angrogin (asexual) appearance is her second skin. Jeans, classic suits, T-shirts and men's shirts look great on the singer's long thin figure. But the deliberate simplicity of stage costumes is nothing more than a game, in fact, the singer sews the outfits to order, so the cropped jackets and leather jackets sit on her "like poured". And some "T-shirts" are designed to demonstrate the tattoos of the star. There are currently seven of them. The most extravagant one is on the singer's LP chest – it symbolizes the way of life and compensates for the visual absence of mammary glands in its own way. Among other tattoos, we note the stars on the wrist and the number 7 in the lower abdomen (in honor of the date of meeting with a friend – July 7), and the Russian word "love" – the singer filled it in Russia, where she has already come several times with concerts. In our country, LP has a lot of imitators (both girls and boys) in the way they dress, in the way they speak and in the way they behave.
Perhaps this is the question that the public is most concerned about. The singer herself does not admit to sex reassignment surgery. Specialists tend to believe her, since such surgical intervention implies lifelong hormone therapy, which cannot but affect the voice – it will change and, perhaps, not for the better. However, the LP's voice remains the same as 20 years ago, which means that Laura did not do the operation.
