International Pop Singer: Shana P
Half American, half Swiss, International Pop Singer Shana P allowed Fashion Girl Gone Wild to interview her. During our interview we found out that she opened up for Justin Bieber's 2013 performance. Our interview covers from her personal to artistic life!
1. How old were you when you started getting involved in music?
Officially, I was 7 years old when I joined a children's choir and we got to perform all over Switzerland. As far as I can remember, when I was about 4-5 years old I used to sing along to my parents' music in their car when we would go on a holiday trip to Italy. It was only when I was 15 years old that I started writing my own songs and then at age 19 I signed with my label.
2. Do you try to give messages in your songs? And if so, what are they?
I talk about things that I experienced myself. It's usually what I feel and believe people can relate to - when talking about love, deceptions or the loss of someone for example. These are things that everyone have in common and can relate to.
3. If you could open up for any artist on tour right now - who would it be?
Definitely Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, or Beyonce! Really, I am not to difficult.
4. Who is your favorite musical inspiration?
I grew up listening to Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, and Michael Jackson. I think they shaped the artist that I am today.
5. How would you describe your fashion style?
That's a tough one… I like being trendy but yet comfortable!
6. Where are your go-to places to shop?
My favorite place to shop is actually a UK website called: www.asos.com which I buy most of my outfits for my onstage performances from.
7. What is your favorite color and your favorite designer(s)?
My favorite colors are blue and yellow (maybe because I'm from Michigan, hahaha) and white. My favorite designers: Guiseppe Zanotti for shoes and definitely Elie Saab for dresses.
8. Any style or beauty tips?
I juice my own fruits and vegetables at least once a week (apple, celery, carrots, and ginger -which by the way is my favorite!) and I've stopped drinking milk since January - which seems to have a positive effect on me.
9. What is one item you can't live without from your closet?
My purses and shoes!! Sorry, couldn't just say one item… they are more important than my actual clothes. I think (hahaha).
10. What Spring trend are you looking forward to?
It's more of a summer thing but I just discovered a clothing line called Emma O' on Instagram and I am going to order a few of those beach dresses very soon!
