DIVINE DIVA INTERVIEW WITH PLASTIC MARTYR
When you were starting out in your career how did you know you were making the right choice as far as pursuing that career for yourself?
I guess for me I knew it was the right choice based off my level of happiness and that I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else. You should love what you do, if you don't love it then you should make a career change. Happiness should be more important than money.
Who were you biggest influences growing up?
Growing up I didn't really have a lot of influences as far as celebrity influences goes, my mother is someone who influenced and inspired me to be a strong and brave woman. She gave me the courage to be who I am more so than a celeb.
When you faced obstacles or fears along the way how did you overcome them, and move beyond them?
I tackled them head on. Ever since I was a kid whether it was with bullies or just obstacles in life I made myself over come those by pretty much making them my bitch for a lack of a better term. Even if I was terrified on the inside I didn't let it show.
What or who inspires you and why?
I'm really inspired by life, the good and the bad. I usually use the negative to inspire me to create something positive like a song or draw on negative experience to help with an acting performance. I like using real life as inspiration because it seems to achieve the most genuine and honest results.
If you could go back in time and change anything about your life would you change anything? If so what would you change and why?
Absolutely. I'd change a lot. I'd probably have physically transitioned earlier, I wouldn't have turned down certain offers that I turned down then, which I only turned down because I never felt like I was good enough. Looking back I was good enough I was just scared of failure.
What do you feel is your greatest achievement?
I don't think I've accomplished it yet. I think thus far, working with a major label like Capitol Records was a huge accomplishment and also helped break down a very ugly and unfortunate barrier in the industry.
What are the most important lessons you have learned along the way?
To never give up, to ignore what people say. To not listen to managers or agents or casting directors rejections, it's really not personal and their opinions are meaningless. Believing in yourself is the most important thing you can do.
What do you hope others will remember most about you and your life?
I hope people remember me for being real, and authentic and genuine. I don't ever want to be a self aggrandizing celebrity. Those kinds of people have lost touch with reality and are delusional and selfish. That is the opposite of what I'm trying to do.
What is the best advice you would give other women who are not sure what path to choose in their life?
I'd say don't put too much pressure on yourself. I'm constantly evolving and so is my career in both negative and positive ways. So remember to be happy and listen to what your heart tells you.
What does success mean to you?
Success to me means achieving your goals, whatever those may be. When we die we can't take our houses or handbags with us, but we do leave behind our story. So success for me is when I leave this earth knowing I left a positive message behind.
