Black grew up at 8 Mile until her parents separated when she was six years old. Her mother rejected her father’s marriage proposal and married another man. Black has the logo of her biological dad’s hair salon on her hand, Beaton Colors. He was her first introduction to Rock N Roll as a child and growing up she would always be with him backstage at fashion shows and photo shoots. When she was 15 years old she discovered her dad had cancer, he died when she was 16. Black was so hurt by the experience she was expelled from schools for fighting against people making fun of her situation, she later ran away from home and started doing drugs, drinking and begging on the streets.

At 16, she moved to Ann Arbor, MI, where, attracted by her volatile charm, some University of Michigan students let her crash at their dorm for six months. Then she went on the road with Armor for Sleep, whose drummer, Nash Breen, is a childhood friend. When she returned to Detroit, she quit doing drugs and talked another friend into road-tripping with her to New York.
