ME: You’re wrapping up the Femme Fatale tour with Britney Spears. Was it everything you wanted? Have you talked to Britney?
JESSIE: Being on the Femme Fatale Tour was like one summer- long dream! The Toy Boys and I had such an amazing time! It was the most incredible feeling hearing the arena roar with applause every night! I’m really proud of us! Britney is a sweetheart, It was nice being around her and her dancers too. Definitely made some new friends on this tour.
ME: You will now be heading on the Identity tour with some of the hottest artists in electro-pop. How excited are you? Will your show be different from when you were on the Femme Fatale tour?
JESSIE: I’m so pumped about ID Fest! I am changing up the entire show and adding in new remix versions of songs of mine into the performance, as well as playing “Summer Boy” for the first time live. It’s going to be so fun!
ME: What can you tell us about your second single?
JESSIE: We are still promoting “Push It” at radio but we have lots of great options for the 2nd single. A lot of my inspirations are still a blend of 80’s pop but with an electro sound. Maybe my Fannequins will let us know what they would like to hear on the radio.
ME: You’ll be filming a video soon…. anything you can tell us?
JESSIE: We are doing a viral video for “Naughty.” That song was so much fun to do live on the Femme Fatale tour and a real fan favorite. I really wanted to release this song as a video because the choreography is so hot and we got this great space to film it. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.
The Show Me Your Tan Lines EP is available on iTunes NOW!
