Colby O'Donis Interview

By: Sindy

Sindy:: Hey Colby, where are you calling from?

Colby: I’m in L.A. in the studio.


Sindy:: Cool! So you were nominated for a Grammy Award—how does that feel?


Colby:That feels good! It was very cool and interesting to go. I got to meet everybody.


Sindy:: What’s it like working with Lady Gaga?


Colby:: It’s cool, Lady Gaga is great, she’s definitely a unique person to work with. I had a lot of fun doing Just Dance with her.


Sindy:: What do you think of Lady Gaga's style?


Colby:I think it’s amazing, it’s great—Lady Gaga’s bringing back a style that’s been gone for such a long time, so it’s cool to see her do it so successfully.


Sindy:: You collaborated with Akon on Beautiful and I saw you guys performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno!


Colby:Yeah it was really cool. I’ve been watching Jay Leno since forever, so to actually be on the show is a little mind-blowing to me.


Sindy:: Did you get to talk to Jay afterwards?


Colby:Yeah I did, Jay Leno’s a really cool guy.


Sindy:: Nice! So your album took three years to finish—can you take me through the process?


Colby: I was recording songs all the time and if I thought something was really hot, I’d put it aside in a folder, and over time I would take it to the label and let them choose from there.


Sindy:: And you worked with some big names, right?


Colby::I did, I worked with a few different people on the record—T Pain of course, Paul Wall, Clinton Sparks, Akon, Lil Romeo and The Dream.


Sindy:: Do you like collaborating or do you like working on your own?


Colby:: At the beginning I liked working on my own, but now I do like doing a lot of collaborations now—just kind of expanding the horizons musically.


Sindy:: Who would you love to work with?


Colby:: Timbaland.


Sindy:: And Let You Go is the new single, right?


Colby:: Yeah, it’s based on a true story of a relationship I was in for about three years. We broke up and the song pretty much explains the whole process of what happened and how it went down.


Sindy:: Maybe your song will make other people feel better.


Colby:: Yeah, definitely.


Sindy:: You toured with New Kids on the Block. Do you have any funny stories from the road?


Colby:: Not really, it was a pretty exhausting tour—a lot of driving! It was pretty crazy, lots of fun.


Sindy:: Did you guys have a big tour bus?


Colby:: Nah, not me, I just drove a little car—kept the budget small as possible.


Sindy:: Good job (laughs). What’s a live show like for you?


Colby:: I have a guitar, dancers—it’s a pretty big show, it’s exciting.


Sindy:: What instruments do you play?


Colby:: Just two—guitar and piano—those are the instruments I love the most. I’ve been playing guitar for over ten years.


Sindy:: Do you still get nervous before you go on stage?


Colby:: Just a little bit before I go on, but once I’m out there, it totally disappears.


Sindy:: Any advice for aspiring artists out there?


Colby:: Yeah, just believe in your dreams and keep moving and eventually, in time, you’ll get there if you have the sticktoitiveness.


Sindy:: Cool, Colby! Thanks for chatting.


Colby:: No problem, thanks for having me.

    I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

    I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
