Fefe Dobson Interview (pg.2)
Sindy: Do you remember the first concert you ever went to?
Fefe Dobson: Yeah, it was the New Kids on the Block. I don't remember a lot of it. I just remember crying and Joey having his shirt off.
Sindy: How do you feel about being compared to other artists like Avril Lavigne?
Fefe Dobson: I don't think I have to worry about that anymore with my second album coming out. You have to just do your thing and eventually over time people will realize who you are and what your music is about. You can't rush that.
Sindy: What have you found to be the most challenging aspect of the music industry?
Fefe Dobson: Lack of sleep. You always have to be on and ready to go. It can be hard to be energetic all the time.
Sindy: On the flip side, what has been the most rewarding aspect of your career so far?
Fefe Dobson: Being able to record a second album is pretty rewarding. Just playing music for a living is so great!
Sindy: What is your definition of girl power?
Fefe Dobson: Being yourself and not letting anyone hold you down or pull back on the reigns and hold you back from what you really want to do. Girl power means going after what you want.
Sindy: Coolest celeb you have had the opportunity to meet?
Fefe Dobson: Justin Timberlake was an awesome guy, a lot of fun. Also, being able to meet older artists who I admire like Joan Jett and Cyndi Lauper, that's been really cool.
Sindy: Celebrity you'd really love to meet but haven't yet got the chance to?
Fefe Dobson: I'd really like to meet Madonna. She seems like a really amazing woman.
Sindy: Do you currently have a boyfriend?
Fefe Dobson: No, I am currently single.
Sindy: What kind of guys do you usually fall for?
Fefe Dobson: Just nice guys. Ones that don't have egos and are fun to be with. I would really date anyone - another musician, fan, whoever - as long as they aren't full of themselves and we get along.
Sindy: What do you like to do when you have some time off?
Fefe Dobson: Just what other regular people like to do. Hang out with my friends, go to movies.
Sindy: Coolest place you've traveled to?
Fefe Dobson: I really loved going to Seattle because that's the home of Kurt Cobain and just the history of that city was really cool.
Sindy: Place you'd like to travel to that you've never been?
Fefe Dobson: I'd like to go to Jamaica because I haven't had the opportunity to go there and it is part of my heritage. I think it would be a really beautiful place to go.
Sindy: Favorite movie?
Fefe Dobson: Growing up I really loved Beetle Juice.
Sindy: Favorite food?
Fefe Dobson: Pancakes
Sindy: Favorite item of clothing?
Fefe Dobson: My converse shoes.
Sindy: One tip you would give aspiring musicians and songwriters about breaking into this business?
Fefe Dobson: Go after what you want. Don't take no for an answer and don't stop for anyone. Put everything you can into pursuing what you want!
