Jessica Jarrell Interview


Check out my exclusive interview with Jessica Jarrell!

Thank you for taking the time to speak with Jay Swag Entertainment News. First, can you please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about yourself?

"Of course! I'm Jessica Jarrell and I'm a recording artist and brand ambassador for Pastry shoes."

At what age did you start becoming interested in the entertainment industry? What made you want to pursue music?

"I started modeling when I was 4 years old...I really had no interest in music until I was 11. I was at school and my friends MADE me audition for this Christmas play they were having.  We thought we were in the acting auditions but somehow we ended up in the singing auditions lol! That was the first time I really tried to sing...and it worked. I fell in love with it."

Your first professional performance was for the Obama's at The White House. Can you tell us a little bit about that, and how you were feeling as you were performing?

"It's funny because my mom told me and I swear I couldn't breathe lol I was so overwhelmed because a little bit before that I was watching other young celebrities perform for his Inauguration Ball and I wanted to be there so bad. So it was really just a dream come true that I was there only a couple of months later. When it was time for me to get on stage I was so nervous because it was my first real show and it was happening at such a historical time; the first black President.  I just felt so honored."

How did you go about becoming friends with Justin Bieber? Are you two still friends?

"Me and Justin met a few years ago at a dinner with Nick Cannon and Baby Face to discuss Nick's movie we were gonna be in called The School Gyrls. We became friends while filming and that led to a duet and of course, a tour. We are still very close! He's such a great person." 

So I've read that you started your career modeling. Are you interested in pursuing any other aspects of the entertainment industry, or are you strictly focusing on singing at the moment?

"I am definitely interested in pursuing other things like acting and more modeling. My work with Pastry allows me to do runway shows and photo shoots where I'm modeling, as opposed to photo shoots that I do as an artist representing myself."

What's an interesting fact about you, that many people may not know?

"Something that will probably shock people is that I'm a science geek lol It's my favorite subject in school. I actually really like doing science home work! Biology, chemistry, physics, they're all interesting to me lol I was in the studio a few weeks ago and Mike Posner was helping me finish my physics :p"

Are you currently working on any projects that you can tell us about?

"Yes!!! I'm gonna be putting out an EP in a couple of weeks! I'm so excited! I think everybody will really love the songs and my new sound!"

If you could work with any artist who would you choose and why?

"I would really love to work with Chris Brown! He's such an incredible artist. I think it would be really cool if we did a song together!"

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

"Creative, edgy, and talkative lol"

Again, I want to thank you for taking the time to complete the interview. Do you have any last thoughts or comments

"No matter what people say..be yourself! do you and have fun :)"

-Jay P-
