VIBE: Your second album, Joy, will be released soon. Describe its sound.
Fefe Dobson: It's mature, but it's fun. It's more raw than the first record. I wanted it to have imperfections. Like at the end of "I Want You," there's laughter, because I was actually honestly laughing.
As a young, black punk rocker, why do you think young black women don't really follow the genre like a white teen supports a group like Paramore?
It doesn't make sense to a lot of people with that ethnicity or look, but that's what I love. I love rock 'n' roll, and I'd be untrue to myself if I did anything other than that or didn't have that element. I love Soul music, but I feel like that all can come together on my terms in rock 'n' roll.
Read the whole interview here. But here's the last Q&A.
What do you think of the constant comparisons to Rihanna?
There are always going to be comparisons with people. That's normal. When i first came out, there were comparisons with Avril [Lavigne], and that died out. And now there's one with me and Rihanna. It's normal. I just giggle at them.
I first learned about ms Dodson through my boyfriend. He's into all kinds of music. Check out his blog, by the way. Anywho, Fefe Dobson's song "I Want U" is featured on the trailer for Drew Barrymore's film, 'Whip It'. I like Fefe's style. It's pretty edgy.
Check out this video. Tell me what u think.
