Teairra Mari may only be 17 years old, but she's already been crowned the Princess of the Roc. With an upcoming album, a couple of hot tracks already hitting the airways and Jay-Z by her side, this is one Detroit native you'll be hearing a lot about in the future. Check out my interview with Teairra Mari!

Sindy: Hey Teairra! How's it going?
Teairra Mari: Great, great, great!

Sindy: Congrats on your new album!
Teairra Mari: Thank you!

Sindy: How come you named the album, Roc-A-Fella Records Presents... Teairra Mari?
Teairra Mari: Because it's true! And it's self-titled - you can't go wrong with that! Roc-A-Fella Records presents me!

Sindy: Ok cool. So why do you describe your album as "a girl's dictionary?"
Teairra Mari: You know, it's like when you stumble on a word and you look it up in the dictionary, but with this album, it's guys trying to figure their girl out - they can listen to the album.

Sindy: I really like your latest single, No Daddy. I think it's a totally hot track, but it's got a serious message behind it about growing up without a father... is this album an autobiography?
Teairra Mari: Yes, it really, really, really is. It's me, my life.

Sindy: So what's your fave track?
Teairra Mari: That one! I love the whole album, but that's my favorite.

Sindy: How did you become crowned as the "Princess of the Roc?"
Teairra Mari: Jay-Z came up with it. It's nice! I mean, coming from him, anything is nice!

Sindy: You have a really cool name. How did you get it, and what does it mean?
Teairra Mari: Well, my mother named me Teairra. Mari is just a name that's been passed down from generations.

Sindy: So how'd you get discovered?
Teairra Mari: I started with this local production company in Detroit, we put together a demo, LA Reid got it and he signed me.

Sindy: Have you always wanted to sing?
Teairra Mari: Yes, my whole life. It's always been second nature.

Sindy: What was your first ever live performance?
Teairra Mari: In school, at a talent show. I was in the fifth grade. I sang No, No, No by Destiny's Child.

    A sudden gust of wind blew it out of my hand and I never saw it again. I was kidnapped by terrorists and they only just let me go, so I didn't have time to do it. The lights in our house went out, and I had to burn it to get enough light to see the fuse box. Another pupil fell in a lake, and I jumped in to rescue him. My homework though drowned. I used it to fill a hole in my shoe; you wouldn't want it now. My father had a nervous breakdown and he cut it up to make paper dolls. My pet gerbils had babies, and they used it to make a nest. I didn't do it, because I didn't want the other kids in the class to look bad. I made a paper plane out of it and it got hijacked. ET stopped by my house and he accidentally took it home with him.
