This is probably going to sound really weird but I always think about life in the shower. For me the shower is such an amazing place. It is the place I feel most content in my own company. I always feel like I have a purpose when I am in the show. The purpose being to clean yourself. But I feel there is something really special about being incapsulated in glass. You’re freeing yourself from the grime and germs from the day which provides an opportunity to clear your head at the same time.
Today has been an amazing day. I finally uploaded the interview I did with Adam Lambert. I tweeted about this earlier today but I wanted to write a blog explaining in more detail what these interviews mean to me. When ever I do an interview I feel an intense amount of pressure. I feel pressure not from the artist, not because they’re a celebrity not because I don’t have faith in myself I know how precious time is. For me to have 5, 10 sometimes 15 minutes with these artists is a real privilege. For the fans I am getting them that one step closer to their favourite artists and I really don’t want to let them down. I always want the interviews I do to give the fans that little extra something that they’ve never seen before. I really want the artist to have a good experience in the interview. I’ve been in experiences where artists have come to me in bad moods because other interviewers have encroached on topics that they’re not wanting to share or aren’t ready to discuss.
I understand that you don’t want to share every aspect of your life with a complete stranger you’ve never spoken to before. For me I always want my interviews to be fun. I want artists to remember their interviews with iHeartRadioNZ because they were fun. Yes it is important to have questions set out that you want to ask but it is just as important to listen to the answers and make conversation from what the artist is saying. In the heat of the moment this can be difficult sometimes.
I love social media more than anything. I think it’s completely amazing that I can tweet at any time of the day or night and that there is someone somewhere in the world who is going to see my tweet and they could potentially respond. Because of my twitter friends I don’t feel lonely. I was never the cool kid at school I never really wanted to be but sometimes it’s nice to know that someone is there. On social media I know someone is always there. Whether its a silly meme a stupid selfie or a quote with a little more substance people take the time to read my thoughts.
My twitter is kind of like an open diary, you get an insight in my thoughts, you experience the things I experience while I am experiencing them. It really is an amazing feeling and I absolutely love sharing all of these experiences with you. I guess I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. Thanks you for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for always being there no matter what time of the day or night. Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts but thank you so much for being a friend. In a world with so much hate it is refreshing to know that there is a whole lot of love. We could take the time to think about all the people who’ve said nasty things but the truth is I will never remember those people how I remember how great you are. Nothing can describe the happiness I feel when I think about my twitter friends. The most exiting part is we’re only just getting started. We have so many more adventures to share together. I can’t wait to take you along for the ride.
Don’t be a stranger I love hearing from you and I will always respond when I can!
All the Love.
