He was like, do you want to do the end credits song for the film? And I said, “Oh yeah that would be awesome. Um … what are they doing for their soundtrack, just out of interest?” And he was like, “I don’t know I can find it out.” I was really keen to curate it. I had this idea that it would be really cool and I think I know what is the right sound for the project. So they were really into it and it just started happening. It’s really been my baby, which is awesome. It’s so rewarding, but it blows my mind that this massive studio has just handed the reigns over to a 17-year-old. I’ve literally been doing it by myself, contacting every artist, sorting everything out.</span></span></p> <p dir="ltr"> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.6227272207086736;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;margin-left: 36pt;"><span id="docs-internal-guid-8b3fcc5a-addb-03e7-9b5a-a369ac351945"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-weight: bold; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Can you tell us some other artists that are involved?</span></span></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.6227272207086736;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;margin-left: 36pt;"><span id="docs-internal-guid-8b3fcc5a-addb-03e7-9b5a-a369ac351945"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">I don’t know if I want to tell you anything yet!

Often you get a heroine in a movie like that and they’re just not cool characters. They’re kind of sappy or kind of boring. But Jennifer (Lawrence) perfectly embodies Katniss Everdeen and you can’t not be interested in that character. She’s so smart and so tough and so brave, but she’s also like, I’m really confused and I don’t know which guy I want to date but like … hold on dude. There’s more important things to do than think about dating. I’ve got to save the world right now. It’s very fresh and modern which I like, but it’s also super youth based. It’s a good set of films. </span><a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/festivals/lollapalooza-festival/6205835/lorde-talks-mockingjay-weird-al-and-new-music-at-lollapalooza" style="text-decoration:none;"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(17, 85, 204); text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">(x)</span></a></span></p> <p dir="ltr"> <span id="docs-internal-guid-8b3fcc5a-addb-03e7-9b5a-a369ac351945"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">have you all noticed something a little strange happening on </span><a href="http://www.thecapitol.pn/" style="text-decoration:none;"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(17, 85, 204); text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">The Capitol’s website</span></a><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Ubuntu; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> recently?

I’ve seen cat whiskers on people in the Capitol before, but none so long. The result is a grotesque, semi-feline mask, which now squints at us distrustfully.</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.15;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;margin-left: 36pt;"><span id="docs-internal-guid-6d130a58-2077-04a6-0ba7-ab584657972e"><a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000405/" style="text-decoration:none;"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Cambria; color: rgb(17, 85, 204); background-color: transparent; text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Michelle Forbes</span></a><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Cambria; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> cast as</span><a href="http://wpc.556e.edgecastcdn.net/80556E/img.site/PHcsdfArhhWdff_1_m.jpg" style="text-decoration:none;"><span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Cambria; color: rgb(17, 85, 204); background-color: transparent; text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> Lt.

Jackson kept the team under control and often gave them orders. Jackson helped Katniss receive the task to guard Peeta during the night.
