Biography

São Paulo, Brazil (2003 – present)

Cansei de Ser Sexy (commonly known as CSS) is a band from São Paulo, Brazil, formed in 2003.

The band name is Portuguese for “Tired of Being Sexy” (taken from something Beyoncé once commented to the press: “I am tired of being sexy”).

The members are: Lovefoxxx (vocals), Luiza Sá (guitar, drums and keys), Ana Rezende (guitar and harmonica) and Carolina Parra (guitar and drums). Former members are Iracema Trevisan (bass) and Adriano Cintra (drums, guitar, vocals and production).

In an interview, guitarist/harmonica player Ana Rezende explains the band’s name: “[…] we heard that Beyoncé had said that she was really tired of being sexy, which is a really retarded thing to say. It’s like saying, “Oh, I’m tired of being rich.” So “tired of being sexy” in Portuguese is cansei de ser sexy, so we put it on the flyer to promote the show that we were playing and we kind of got stuck with that name. It was just the stupidest name that we could have ever come up with, but it’s funny and I love it. But sometimes people think that we’re serious and we’re tired of being recognized for our bodies or something like that, and it’s nothing like that at all…”

CSS owes a lot of its success to word-of-mouth promotion on the internet, starting with the Trama Virtual website, a kind of Brazilian MySpace. A live performance in 2004 at Tim Festival on the same stage as 2 Many DJs and Kraftwerk increased their fanbase.

    eu amo o trabalho que as meninas fizeram com o planta, nao sei pq voce sentem tanto a falta do adriano, ele ra bom ok mas elas sozinhas pelo menos pra mim se sairam muito bem <3 [+1] Tem um povo que simplesmente pelo Adriano ter sair já ouviu o novo cd com mal vontade e saiu espalhando o ódio. Se eu ouvir o CD de um artista que eu sei que eu não gosto é bem provável que eu não gosto, pq simplesmente não quero gostar, entende? E o Planta não é um CD de primeira audição, ele é um CD que te conquista com o tempo. Tem músicas como Girlfriend, Sweet, Faith In Love que são bizarras de primeira, abomináveis... depois vc começa a reparar no instrumental e sua cabeça explode. HAHA
