Her acting in her show is so frighteningly good and she’s so convincing that I’m sure I’ll end up encountering her same cold demeanor and scary stares that I’ve seen from her on screen. Sho. Instead, I am greeted with enthusiasm and cheerfulness. I learned during the chat that this was the real Izzy G. He’s charismatic, funny, and talented beyond his years.

Sitting on a white couch in her parents’ home, Izzy is full of energy. She admitted she was a little nervous, so to ease her nerves, I borrowed an oversized t-shirt from her No Doubt band from her friend and wore it to the group’s large show at Coachella. I asked if he had seen the reunion. “I saw Olivia Rodrigo’s part,” she replied, talking about the “Vampire” singer’s surprise cameo on her opening weekend. But what she watched in its entirety was Lana Del Rey’s mesmerizing headline performance, accompanied by Billie Eilish’s duet of “Ocean Eyes” and “Video Games.” “I’m a big fan of both of them, so I was really happy to see them together… [It’s] “It was like I was in a coma,” she said with a laugh. “I had FOMO.”
