Janel Parrish Interview

Dec 13, 2007

By: Sindy

She's best known as Jade from Bratz: The Movie, but there's a lot more to Janel Parrish than that. We sat down to chat with this completely un-bratty star!

Sindy: So you were signed to Geffen Records this year. That must gave been HUGE for you.
Janel Parrish: Yeah, this is something that I've wanted for a long time. I recorded a song that ended up on the Bratz Soundtrack and, from that, I ended up signing a record deal. So, yeah, I still can't believe it!

Sindy: Are you recording your first album now?
Janel Parrish: I'm writing some songs myself, and writing some with other people. I'm just getting prepared, really.

Sindy: What can fans expect from it?
Janel Parrish: My music is mostly piano-based. I guess I have pretty introspective lyrics, like Jewel crossed with Mandy Moore, but I dance as well. So they can also expect that I'll be up there boogying as well.

Sindy: When do you expect it will be out?
Janel Parrish: I'm not sure yet. It depends how long it takes to write and record. It's my first album so I don't really know what to expect.

Sindy: So will you be taking some time off acting to focus on your music career, or do you plan to do both?
Janel Parrish: I definitely plan to do both. I'd really like to do a musical movie as well. I'm open to everything.

Sindy: You got your start in the theater. Do you have any plans to return to the stage?
Janel Parrish: Yes, absolutely. Musical theatre has always been my first love and I'm definitely planning on going back to Broadway one day.
