MØ Talks about Her Weird Experiences From Her Tour On Jimmy Fallon
While backstage, MØ shared some of the weirdest things that have been thrown onstage plus her pre-show ritual while on the road.
Karen Marie Aagaard Ørsted Andersen (born 13 August 1988), better known as Karen Marie Ørsted or by her stage name MØ (“pronounced like ‘mercy’ without the ‘cy’“, Danish pronunciation: [‘mø]), is a Danish musician, singer and songwriter signed to Sony Music Entertainment. Born in Ubberud, MØ has been compared to electropop artists such as Grimes and Twin Shadow. Besides being an acronym for her middle and last name initials, the word mø means “maiden” or “virgin” in Danish. Her debut studio album, No Mythologies to Follow, was released in March 2014.
MØ collaborated with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea on the 2014 single “Beg for It“, which peaked at number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100, earning MØ her first entry on the chart. The following year, MØ was featured on Major Lazer and DJ Snake‘s single “Lean On“, which peaked highly on international charts, including number one in Australia, number two in the United Kingdom and number four in the United States.
