“It was just so confusing living as a woman and having people call me ‘Jason.’ I was performing one night, and the microphone had the word ‘Kylie’ on it, a reference to (Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue). I took that name and ‘Love’ as a last name.”
In the interview, Love also spoke about how she has been adjusting to change. “I was out with a friend recently, and I was uncomfortable because I felt people were staring at me. My friend asked me what was wrong, and I told her. She said, ‘Relax, Kylie, people are looking at you because you’re beautiful. You’re not a freak; there’s nothing wrong with you. People stare at you because you’re beautiful.’”
