‘I have a lot of stupid tattoos,’ she said with a laugh.

‘When I die, I said to my friends that I want people to look at me in my coffin and for my body to be my life story,’ she added.

She was named Cheyenne Green, but according to her family, underwent several name changes over the years – including Winona Lisa Green and Winona Brooks.

She also adopted the stage name Lil Bo Weep as well as Unaloon. 

In 2015, she began producing music on SoundCloud and soon found a global fan base.

Winona battled depression, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction. She also tragically lost her child, a daughter, in March last year.

Winona previously spent some time working as a musician in Los Angeles where she performed live shows and released music online.

She adopted a punk/emo-inspired personal style from a young age, which included getting a number of tattoos, piercings and wearing her brightly-coloured hair in dreadlocks.
