ariel tseng - fortune killers
*Note* - This interview with Ariel made me laugh SO hard, all three of us (Felicia included) were all giggling during this interview, so thank you Ariel for bringing your humour!
Myself: For the readers and your knowledge, this project is all about shining light on women in the music world. Whether they are the lead singer, or a badass drummer, I want to use this as an opportunity to celebrate THEM and their talent in music. So, thank you for taking the time to chat!
My first question is who were some of your influences musically growing up?
Ariel: Backstreet boys, NSync, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, Ashanti, Michael Jackson, Ja Rule, and 50 Cent. Just to name a few.
Myself: You have DEFINITELY been waiting for this question… LOL.
My other question was what are some of your favourite parts about performing?
Ariel: I like the attention, I like knowing people are looking at me, and I also like knowing people are looking at me and thinking WOW she is so cool, she’s so hot. * a lot of laughter *
Myself: I am going to add onto this question and ask how you feel about being a FEMALE drummer? I think it’s pretty neat to be out there, when it isn’t very common to see a female drummer and kick ass like you do. I also think its an awesome influence towards young girls!
Ariel: Yeah I definitely think its pretty sweet, I feel like there is a lot of pressure. I feel like there is a lot of pressure to be really good and that is the main thing. You have to be good. It’s really great, the only thing is that there is honestly MORE PRESSURE. Feels good to be an influence to young girls.
