Oh she thinks she's Lady Gaga. You know what her 'real voice' reminded me of? Mikey Minden's. Which makes sense -- she likely practiced the talk with him.
I watched her TED Talk for some context -- the subject is embracing personas and the 'real' you. Which is ironic, because if TEDTalkErika is meant to be the 'real Erika' talking about her stage persona Erika Jayne or her wife persona Erika Girardi -- then why does TEDTalkErika feel like a persona as well?
IMO Erika has a lot of self-loathing which she covers up with bragging. She'd rather play a one-dimensional show
