studio (un)scripted: 5 questions with anthony addotta.

ANTHONY ADDOTTA, The Best Thing That’s Ever Happened to Instagram (and the one that carried my luggage to the Uber the day I left LA)

To me, the studio is my happy place. Where is yours?
I may sound ridiculous but a staycation in a luxury hotel room. Nothing recharges me more than room service, an amazing bath tub, and crisp white bedding. It always recalibrates me and gets my creative juices flowing. Where are my hotel sponsorships at???

You have built an impressive following online. How did you go about doing that?
I started my page mid nervous breakdown in the first 6 months of the pandemic. I was crying every day for no reason and needed to find some way to make myself laugh. So, I started going on You Tube deep dives and thinking of jokes. I thought why the hell not see if I could make someone else who was having a hard time laugh too? 2 years in and I’m approaching 40k followers. And I earned every damn follower one meme at a time…no purchases here! My most viral content is usually about Pop Divas (Celine, Mariah, Whitney, etc.) or the Fast Food Giants of the World (McDonalds, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut…if you act like you’re above Taco Bell, we can’t be friends)

When you’re approached to promote a brand/product/campaign, etc. what are the qualifications you stand by before saying yes and posting?
Once I built up my confidence with my following, I realized I only needed to post products that I really stood behind and enjoyed. My personal life is all about wellness/skincare/mental health and most of my jokes are about nervous breakdowns and food, specifically fast food. It really gives a wide net for product placement and I still get giddy anytime I get a package in the mail to try new things. I felt like I really made it when I got a package from THE Deuxmoi. And my dream is to one day get a PR box from McDonalds…I manifest it every day and that’s when I will really feel like I’ve made it!

Your skin has been glowing since the day we met — give me all of your secrets! (Or at least one, please).
I’m all about serum and toner…but the real secret is a damn good laser. I’m also so excited to drown myself in my new Timeline Skincare.

If you could ask me anything, what would it be?
How do you make every spin instructor fall in love with you? Are you really Deuxmoi? When are you coming back to LA so we can get lasers together???
