Ask a Grown Man: Girl Talk

The musician engages in exactly what his name implies. Meta!

Gregg Gillis is the maker of amazingly danceable mashups, like the ones on his last album, All Day, and his new collaborative EP with Freeway, Broken Ankles, which you can grab for free right here. Since he goes by the name Girl Talk, we decided to see if Gregg could put his money where his mixtapes are and answer some of your loftiest, most confounding questions about boys, baseball, Snapchat, being labeled “judgmental,” and so much more. The verdict? Based on the advice in this here video, we think you’ll agree that he’s earned the right to his title. For more Girl Talk, follow him on Twitter and/or Facebook. Enjoy!

LIFE IS HARD AND CONFUSING. Luckily, we know plenty of very wise adults who can help without getting all guidance-counselor-y on you. If you need your back gotten right now, email your questions to with “Ask a Grown” in the subject line, and please include your first name (or your nickname or initials), your city, and your age.
