Kate Pierson was on her second cup of coffee in her Woodstock, New York, home when we called her to chat. The redheaded singer of the B-52's is way more than a big voice, bouffant, and bellbottoms, she also owns, runs, and decorates two hotels with her partner Monica. Lazy Meadow
is located in upstate New York, and their newest venture is an Airstream oasis in Landers, California, Kate's Lazy Desert
near Joshua Tree, the Andromeda Astrological Society
, and the Integratron
Pierson spends time off the road enjoying fruit from her garden, appearing on Top Chef, preparing for a solo album, and postulating the future of digital music. She'll be recreating the atmosphere of the legendary "Love Shack" and feeding us audio "Rock Lobster" this Wednesday night in Hollywood at the Hard Rock Live with the rest of the B-52's.
