Fefe Dobson Interview

Nov 14, 2010

Check out Kidzworld’s interview with Canadian singer and songwriter, Fefe Dobson.

Kidzworld: How did you break into the music industry? And what challenges did you face along the way?

Fefe: I was a very persistent teenager and never took no for an answer. I worked with anyone and everyone to have my voice heard. I face challenges every day. When I first started it was the challenge of being a black female doing rock and now I find more than ever, it's about staying true to my artistry, and not following the pack.

Kidzworld: Who has been the most influential or helpful person as you established your career?

Fefe: My best friend. She keeps me grounded and steers me forward.

Kidzworld: Which of your songs is your favorite and why?

Fefe: There is a ballad called "Can't Breathe" that is really very personal to me & Orianthi lends a wicked guitar solo. The song is basically about a past relationship where I was like , be proud of me - stand tall with me- don't mess up a good thing, because I can't breathe without you. We could have everything if you just give up the act.

Kidzworld: People tend to put celebrities on a pedestal. But deep down celebrities are regular people. Can you tell us some tidbits about your personal life that your fans may not know?

Fefe: I love my puppy Pepper. I sing to her and talk to her sometimes like she is a human!


Kidzworld: What is your most embarrassing moment?

Fefe: Just the other day I was out and thought I saw an old friend, so I was like, "Hey!..Hey! Justin!" I was very sure it was him...but then the guy looked at me like I was crazy and shrugged his shoulders. Oops!..." Sorry, I thought you were my friend". I won't lie, I was kind of embarrassed.

Kidzworld: Do you have any crazy fan stories?

Fefe: Well, once when I was on tour in Europe, I decided to go online to my official fefedobson.com blog page and start chatting. The person I was chatting with didn't believe they were really striking a conversation with me, so I told them to give me their number, and I personally gave them a call. They were so surprised! It made my week! :)

Kidzworld: What is your favorite part about being in the music industry? Least favorite?

Fefe: Favorite part being able to make music and then share it with the world. Least favorite, those who make music for materialistic gain.


Kidzworld: If you weren’t singing, what other career would you pursue?

Fefe: I can't imagine doing anything else.

Kidzworld: Do you have any tours, concerts or new albums planned for the near future?

Fefe: Most definitely! Check fefedobson.com or twitter.com/fefedobson for tour updates or Bestfan.com which is my official fan site. I will for sure be at a venue near you very soon!

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
