Bow Wow Interview (pg. 2)

Bow Wow is all grown up and he's ready to unleash his new sound with his latest disc, Wanted which features the track, Let Me Hold You. Hear what he has to say about music, his love life and more!

Sindy: What was it like working with JoJo?
Bow Wow: It was cool, it was cool. Actually when I did the record, she wasn't in the studio. Everything was already pre-recorded and I just had to go in and write my verse after everything was already done and I laid it. But we did do the video together, it was cool.

Sindy: What do you think is your biggest achievement in your career so far?
Bow Wow: Ummm, so far in my career I would say there's two things - selling out Madison Square Gardens was definitely a highlight and the other would be my new record Let Me Hold You being number one rap record in the country.

Sindy: Do you plan on focusing on music or will you take more acting roles in the future?
Bow Wow: Later on in the future, I definitely see myself closing my career out in film, so people can look forward to me doing that. I'm definitely going to be [kwlink]taking part in that[/kwlink].

Sindy: Is there anyone specific you would like to work with in the film industry?
Bow Wow: I would love to work with Denzel, I mean who wouldn't want to work with Denzel? Any of the greats, any of the great actors and actresses, it would just be a pleasure to be a co-star. And even though I'll star in my own films, it would just be a blessing to work with someone like that.

Sindy: So what's your new movie about?
Bow Wow: The new movie is a '70s movie, set in 1978. I play the main character and it's about a group of kids who's skating rink actually gets closed down so they're forced to go over to the North side to go skate. So, a rivalry heats up and they're battling it out to see who's going to be the best and we enter a skate off. But not only that, the main character Xavier, who I play, goes through so much in life, you know. He's going on through life without a mother and he's just left at home with his little sister and his father. And his father's there to raise men, not boys and he's very, very hard on my character and he's going to make you hate him in this movie, without a doubt.

Sindy: Did you have to learn to skate for the movie?
Bow Wow: Umm, no not really cuz I'm from the Midwest so I already knew how to skate. We would go skating all the time. It really wasn't nothing for me, I just went in there and did my thing. The only thing that we did have to do, we had to learn some new moves on skates, we had to dance on skates, so we had to do choreography on skates. I thought that was crazy, but other than that, everything else was a'ight.

Sindy: What do you like to do when you have some time off?
Bow Wow: When I have my own time off I like to just chill, you know what I'm saying. Talk on the phone, relax, play basketball, go swimming and just do different things like that.

Sindy: Who's the coolest celebrity you've had the chance to meet?
Bow Wow: I'd have to say Hilary Clinton. I met her at my apartment. There was a function going on at my apartment in LA at the time and she was there and it was crazy. To see her embrace me and have her know exactly who I was - yeah, it was just crazy.

Sindy: Wow. That must have been cool. Do you have any celebrity crushes?
Bow Wow: No. I don't have any celebrity crushes.

Sindy: Do you have a girlfriend?
Bow Wow: Ummmm, I'm happy. Let's just put it that way.

Sindy: What qualities do you look for in a girl?
Bow Wow: Nice personality, looks, if she carries herself like a woman and doesn't really disrespect herself or her body. She's just gotta represent and understand the strength and knowledge of being a woman.

Sindy: So, for your clothing line, are you very hands on with the design process?
Bow Wow: Well I don't have my clothing line anymore, I'm dealing with Rocawear now. They're actually sponsoring me for my tour so I'm kind of on the verge of signing with them.

Sindy: Oh cool. Will you be helping to design any of their clothing?
Bow Wow: No, not at all. Damon Dash, he deals with all that.

Sindy: What's your favorite food?
Bow Wow: Ummm, Italian.

Sindy: Favorite TV show?
Bow Wow: Monday Night Football, when football season is on.

Sindy: Do you have a favorite football team?
Bow Wow: Oh yeah, the Atlanta Falcons.

Sindy: Favorite movie?
Bow Wow: Scar Face. I love all gangster movies.

Sindy: Favorite place you've ever traveled?
Bow Wow: Ooh. I've been to so many places I couldn't pick. That'd be tough.

Sindy: How about a place you've never been but would like to go to?
Bow Wow: Aspen.

Sindy: What kind of advice would you give kids wanting to break into the music industry?
Bow Wow: Just stay focused. Do something you really want to do and just go for it. Don't let nobody tell you you can't cuz you always can. That's what that song Big Dreams is about - just go ahead and go for it. Stay focused, keep God in your life and you can do anything you want to do if you put your mind to it.

Sindy: Cool. Well, thanks so much for talking to us Bow Wow!
Bow Wow: There it is. No problem. I just wanna say to my fans that I love you guys, check me out on the Scream IV tour and also, go out and pick up the brand new album, Wanted.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
