Happy Birthday, CL!
The K-pop superstar is 24 today, moving into what might be her most exciting year of life yet. After nearly six years as the leader to Korean phenoms 2NE1, CL has established herself as an important front-runner in K-pop's international expansion; breaking records and busting down barriers. This spring, CL will shift her focus to America with a full-fledged U.S. debut with Justin Bieber/Ariana Grande manager Scooter Braun. The singer/rapper told Billboard first about her itch to show not only herself, but all Asian women in a new spotlight.
