Watch St. Vincent Play Fortnite With Gamer Abby Russell
St. Vincent has entered the world of video game livestreams. After revealing in an interview earlier this year that she “probably put 300 hours” into Zelda: Breath Of The Wild after getting a Nintendo Switch as a prop for her role in the film The Nowhere Inn, it appears that she has now also gotten really into Fortnite.
She was a guest on a Giant Bomb video with gamer/comedian Abby Russell and played Fortnite for an hour. “I should warn you that I’m not very good,” St. Vincent prefaced her playthrough. “I play a lot but I’m not good … as long as the expectation is set.”
Her character design is “straight up paramilitary,” as St. Vincent described. “I also have another one that looks like a club promoter in Ibiza, like a blazer with… more like a yacht billionaire.”
She also talks about what her next console purchase might be: “I’ve been toying with the PS5 situation, which obviously I know it’s not out yet but I’ve been wondering how far down the rabbit hole I should go,” she said, adding: “I also recently got an Oculus, which aside from the nausea it gives me is really fun.”
