La Roux’s leading lady, Elly Jackson, recently sat down with MTV to talk about her “In For The Kill” collaborator, Kanye West. In the interview, Elly praises Kanye for not being afraid to work with some of the hottest artists out there on his new record. “What I really liked was the aspect of his idea of using all the best people you have at your fingertips, that people don’t seem to do that … and I think that was kind of his point with this record,” Elly explained to MTV News.
