Les Twins Interview w/ Starter.fm – Part 2 (w subtitles)

Part 2 of the Starter.fm interview with the complete translation. Enjoy!

HOST
It’s really an honor for us to have you guys because I put myself in the auditors shoes who get a lot of auditions and dream to be on TV one day, to have these huge opportunities like yours. You are the proof that yes everything is possible.

LARRY
Yeah really. It depends for what you’re working for, it depends where you’re going and what’s your willing.

LAU
In any job, if you think that your dream is in the US, and that you’re sure you can make it, there more than here, just go.

HOST
Is there a secret or not ?

LARRY
Yes, you can make it. People think it’s because you have connections. I live in Sarcelles, I had my first sneakers at 10 years old, my brother too.

LAU
Mine.

LARRY
My brother had it first, that’s cool. Decathlon, Kipsta (Decathlon’s brand for sport equipment). So no we made it because we had a talent, and we don’t savor our success, you have to work. And we worked everyday, and it’s a style that when you put in on a black shape with 1000 dancers you know where we are. You just have to work, not for money, not for connections.

LAU
I just wanna tell you, we are not the only twins dancer living on this earth, a lot of b-boys, house dancers, “hip hopers” who dance and are twins, simply don’t have the feeling. You don’t have to be twins to think like us, to dance like us with our connexion, that everyone sees, you just have to know the person you’re dancing with. There’s no magic in it. The training dot com.

HOST
Oh it’s a good message.
But the twins feeling still works !

LAU
Oh you have to enjoy doing bullshits with him, enjoy playing with him, voilà.

HOST
(talking about the songs she’ll put on – and the Who run the world Beyoncé video they participated to)

LAU
We’ll do the choreo at the same time.

HOST
So Larry and Laurent how are you ?

LAU
Hiiiii

LARRY
Good, we’re still here.

HOST
Let’s talk about auditions guys, right now. Because earlier we were talking about the Who run the world video, one of my favourite..

LARRY
Oh me too !

HOST
I love it and I love the message of this song, of course. Guys how went the audition, tell us everything !

LAU
In fact there were a hugely number of women in this world who wanted to dance with Beyoncé, she announced that she wanted to make an audition with like 100 women, and trust me we saw a lot of costumes.

HOST
How many women, honestly ?

LAU
Honestly, there’s no number.

LARRY
We’ll start from 3 with some 0s after, more 0s than you think.

LAU
Oh that’s for sure. Maybe more I don’t know. Besides that, the women came from some agencies or not, she (Beyoncé) likes to see girls from the ghetto too, she likes to see personnalities, originalities and things that we don’t see in France, because it’s true that in France the auditions are really tight, they follow too much french trends. And there, they are really creatives, they like to see women who dress, who don’t neglect themselves and dance like they want to.

HOST
Who have their own personnalities for real.

LAU
Yeah, and who are not afraid of anything.

HOST
And what was your contribution to this audition ?

LARRY
Judges.

LAU
Judges and choreographers a bit, we taught them the “Why did you love me” (he meant ” why don’t you love me” lol) choreo we did for Beyoncé.

LARRY
Sweet dreams..

LAU
No ! Just the Why Don’t You Love Me one.
So we did it for her tour, so she said you have to taught them this choreo.

LARRY
When they saw that nobody could do the choreo, we found ourselves alone on stage.

HOST
So you have been a bit teachers..

LARRY
No we haven’t been teachers.

HOST
Well, you did the choreo..

LAU
Well we are choreographers yes.

HOST
So you create your choreos, are you the one who had these ideas, those style effects…?

LAU
Of Les Twins ?

HOST
Yeah..

LAU
In fact I just watch my brother dances and tell him what’s right and wrong and I steal from him ! And he steals all I do !

HOST
So it’s really important to be 2. That makes you stronger.

LAU
Yeah, we don’t need any mirror.

HOST
And what’s your initial training ?

LAU
Bullshit..

LARRY
Cartoons..

HOST
The Gibus club..Street ?

LARRY
It’s mostly home.

LAU
Hell was at home, hell was brothers and sisters. I think that the public knows my family, now behind you (in the studio) and…shit..!

HOST
In the future, do you see yourselves in another career?

LAU
Well, we are models at Next Agency as talent, whose a lot of talents are there, like Pharell Williams, Jessie J…We’re there and everything is going great.
We did the fashion week at the front row with Dior, Karl Lagerfeld…

HOST
I don’t know why but I have this feeling that one day I’ll go to the cinemas and will see 2 tufts of hair like that…

LAU
We already choreographed a lot for the cinema but we never participated to a movie. People from the Cinema’s industry know us, show us some videos of us, often call us, but because we have projects with other people, we can’t do it right now. But we take our time.

HOST
But you are comedians too.

LAU
We are comedians, yes that’s right.

HOST
Do you have a motto ?

LARRY
There’s a lot.

LAU
In 20 seconds?

LARRY
Oh it’s gonna be hard !
For the moment we’re here in Paris, teaching classes at the Juste Debout School before the Juste Debout event. We do some appearances in clubs, to say that we are in Paris for some time. But we plan to leave for something that will hurt ! (french expression to say that they’ll do something huge).

LAU
This will really hurt !

LARRY
Mouaahhahahaaa

LAU
Like the day you’re used to see me at the Gibus, and the next day you see me with B ! This gonna hurt as much !

HOST
Now with whom are you going to work ?

LAU
Hum…We can’t say that !

HOST
Tell us at least if you have an artist that inspires you !

LAU
We won’t tell because actually it’s the thing, for the people and the fans who know us, we have only one idol and this is the one we’re going to work with !

LARRY
If you know me you’ll know who he is !

HOST
It’s the secret ! I figured it out, but I won’t tell ! That’s it ! (joking)
Thanks a lot ! We had a great time with you !

LARRY
I like Starter !

HOST
It’s here, you can come whenever you want !
