You may recognize Maggie Sajak from her notable last name (she's the offspring of Wheel of Fortune's Pat Sajak) but the 18-year old singer is taking the country scene by storm, and bringing a touch of high fashion with her. Oh, and balances her singing career with her pre-med studies at Princeton. The Daily caught up with Sajak, and it seems like that other blonde country starlette has a bit of friendly competition.
How did you get started with your singing career?
I’ve been singing my whole life and I’ve always listened to country music. It’s become a passion for me and I’ve been pursuing it professionally for the past three years.
But aren’t you still in school?
Yeah, I’m a sophomore at Princeton.
What do you study?
I’m not sure what my major is yet, but I am doing a bit of pre-med because I want to lay the groundwork, in case I ever want to go to medical school.
That’s impressive! What have you been working on career wise?
I just did a music video for my latest single, "Wild Boy", that was shot at ACME studios in Brooklyn, with Tom Betterton and Jenny Gage as the photographers. I worked with Billy B on the makeup, and the stylist was Nina Sterghiou. I ended up wearing an Alaïa dress! Madeline Poole did the nails, and while she did something clean and simple, she’s really amazing. I love mixing fashion and country, which is exactly what this group of people did for me.
What other fun have you had in fashion?
I did a shoot for Teen Vogue at Princeton and we focused on a punk look with a big blazer and chunky shoes, which I plan to wear this fall. The other look was denim on denim, which I wouldn’t usually think of wearing.
Will you consider wearing denim on denim now?
I will, as long as it’s done right!
Did you like the shoot?
We got to try on a bunch of different clothes, just racks and racks of stuff. I felt like I was in a dream.
