SHE is eccentric and electrifying but she certainly knows how to pump up a crowd.

Featured on the cover as Miss Vogue Australia 2012, Ruby Rose, with her alluring choice of fashion, was the major talking point of the 2012 ARIA awards.

This Australian hot shot will be coming to Gladstone on Sunday, January 27 for a massive Australia Day party at the Harvey Road Tavern

Ruby Rose Langenheim landed her first gig in the public eye in 2007 as a VJ for MTV.

Since then, the stunning multi-talented individual is known for appearing as a panelist on the Network Ten's The Project, guest judge and co-host of the Australia's Next Top Model Finale and designing her own fashion label, Milk & Honey.

Outside of this, Ruby's talents extend to DJ-ing, where she plays at the hottest clubs, parties and festivals around the world.

When asked what the best thing about being Ruby Rose was, the genuinely humble stunner is quick to reply: "My fans".

The Observer had the opportunity this week to have our own personal Q&A with Ruby Rose. Here are her answers.

Q - How did you come to fame?
A - Hmm I don't really think I came to fame or fame came to me, I wanted to be successful in my industry; where my passion lay, and that was music and entertainment.

It's like any career you choose, you want to do well. It's just that a bi-product of success in my industry is fame.

Q - What was life like before the fame?
A - Exactly the same, except I was broke.

Q - How did it feel to be a bachelorette of the year finalist in 2012?
A - Ha ha that was both funny and cute. I don't want to be like George Clooney though, as handsome as he is, I don't want to be a bachelor forever.

I mean .. I am too into love and the idea of love. Won't change my bachelor pad though, not for a few more years. It's like a rich 16-year-olds house ha ha - or Peewee Herman's play house.

Q - What are you working on next?
A - First and foremost the album, and my next single, I have really had to slap my Piscean brain into order. I have so many passions and loves.

I do have a tendency to get so excited and passionate about things, but I know that with something like this I need to let go of some hobbies and just focus on my album so I can use all my heart and soul on this. I am also working on my book, but they go hand in hand.

I'm laughing because I just realised I have a huge campaign coming up, and potentially a movie.. I am my own worst enemy.. ask my manager.

Q - What is a general day in the life of Ruby Rose like?
A - Every day is different, I am lucky if I have the same time zone more than two days in a row. I have 300,000 frequent flyer points on both airlines and I am constantly using them, but that's an indication of how much I travel.

I love it, but it means every day is different! I know coffee is the one thing that is a common occurance though. So is amazingness

Q - What inspires your music/your beats?
A - 80's is pretty intertwined in my fibre. I love Blondie and Madonna, Metallica, Guns and Roses; then I just love playing around with electronic sounds, but that have personality that are unique; definitely exploring what is possible.

Q - What excites you about coming to Gladstone?
Everything ( I have never been ). I am getting tweeted by so many excited people, so I want to put on a massive show!

Q - Do you have a motto or philosophy you live by, and if so what is it?
It changes all the time, but right now I am really just about being kind to one self.

You need to believe in yourself because your opinion is the only one that counts.

I truly do believe though that a simple motto I always follow is that you get what you put in, so always give every things you care about everything you have.

Q - How do you deal with all the media attention?
Well I guess it pertains to the above mottos, I learnt over time to just embrace the good and ignore the bad, because really its just other people's opinions.

Someone's opinion of you doesn't actual alter who you are. So you just take the hits and misses with a pinch of salt.

Q - Favourite activity or hobby?
Writing music, surfing, skating, dirt biking and boxing.

Q - What would you say is your biggest achievement?
Having created a position in an industry that didn't already exist and then I just kind of moulded it and found myself in the process.
