  • My #1 fav @MuchMusic interview was when @JustinBieber came to New.Music.Live. - Not for the obvious reason of me being totally crazy over him, or bc he was / is the biggest popstar in the world... OR bc he was SOOO sweet, taught me to play the DJEMBE, introduced us to his little sister & joked about my "Bieber Fever" tattoo... This was the most memorable interview for me bc I almost didn't do it! I was sat down / asked by my producer Cary, if I thought I could handle it. I had only been in TV for a month! To host a 1 hour live special with JB! Terrifying! I told him I'd think on it. I basically cried all wknd bc I didn't belieb (haha) I could do it. My friend Bobby sat with me & gave me a pep talk. I agreed to it. What a rush! It's not THE greatest TV in the world, but from this I learned how rewarding it is to step outside your comfort zone! I look back feeling proud. Thanks for the memories Much! 30 Years of Much airs today at 9E/6P! #throoowbacccckkView Photo

  • In 2nd place for my fav @MuchMusic interview... @TeddysPhotos tattooing me! Now this is one of my favs for many reasons! One being that Ed is one of my favorite musicians, two being that I'm only 1 of 4 people he's tattooed, 3, it was so cool that @PerezHilton put it on the front page of his site and 4 being that this was a pain in the butt to make happen. It almost didn't happen because of health and safety issues but of course the universe conspired to make it work! Long story short, Ed and I became pals after we met at #MMVA - we both love cats and both have an arm that is slowly collecting random coloring book looking tattoos. Getting tattooed together was inevitable, "why not you tattoo your paw print on me!" - YES! If you take a look at his upper left arm, you will find "MEOW" etched in there! The only tattoo I've EVER done! Success! (Two more things, pardon my British accent that creeps up when I'm around him / thank you again @fyinktattoos (Nikki) for supervising!)
