PZO: As a musician, what are your best qualities?
I would probably have to say that I am my own critic. That’s a good quality I think when you are able to be honest with yourself if something is not at your best ability or you could do something better. I also try my very best not to blend in. That’s not just musically, but that’s in my everyday life and I’m not afraid to be laughed at.

PZO: Describe your music in five words or less.
  Rock and Roll, Pop, Unique, Vintage and Honest.

PZO: What’s a common compliment people give you?
  They like my live show.

PZO: What was the last meaningful thing you did?
Tell someone I love them.

PZO: What is your best childhood memory?
When my mom and my sister sang “You Can’t Hurry Love” the Phil Collins version.
PZO: Was that a one-time deal?
Fefe: It was one time. It was on and they were trying to make me feel better about relationships and they just started singing. It’s the only time I’ve ever really seen them get together for a common goal.

PZO: What’s one thing you would not do for any amount of money?
  Live my life alone.

PZO: What is something you have always wanted to do, but haven’t done yet?
 Swim with dolphins. That would be so cool.

PZO: Given the opportunity, who would you kidnap for a day?
<laughs> Who would I kidnap? Justin Bieber.
PZO: and what would you do?
Fefe: He would teach me how to do the doogie or whatever it’s called, the doggy, the dougie—what is it called?
PZO: The dougie.
Fefe: The dougie. Yeah, see I can’t even say it. He’ll have to teach me how to say it first.
PZO: Have you met him?

PZO: What’s one question you’ve never been asked in an interview that you would like to be asked?
Not sure. I like interviews that are spontaneous. You’ve asked me a lot of spontaneous questions. They’re cool. I like being asked questions that I’m not asked a lot.

PZO: You’re going to be on an upcoming episode of Hellcats.
Correct, I’m very excited.
PZO: Did you already film it?
Fefe:Yeah, we already filmed it. It’s me performing one of the bar scenes performing my new single, “Stuttering”.
PZO: Did you do any acting?
Fefe: Uh no. I acted like I was in a bar.
PZO: How was that experience?
It was awesome. Everyone on set was amazing and super cool. The energy was totally up there it was so great. I would love to go back on the show. They’ve been so great with promoting my music. They’ve played “Watch Me Move” and “Stuttering” already. It’s pretty cool.
PZO: Do you watch the show?
Fefe: Yeah, I have been able to catch a few segments. But I don’t have cable, so I have to like try to YouTube episodes.
PZO: They put them up on thecw.com about a week after each episode is aired.
Fefe: Oh, there you go. I’ll do that.

PZO: I think in an interview a few weeks ago, you mentioned going on tour with Forever the Sickest Kids, is that still in the works?
  I think it’s all being talked about, like touring in general is all trying to be worked out right now. I know we’re talking about taking a road trip with me and my guitar player just hitting up random cities and kind of like playing.

PZO: Your album Joy, comes out November 30th, you’ve been working on this for four years, what can we expect?
  It is a concept record. The concept is that I’ve always been a rock pop artist. So I thought why not make that literal. It starts off with a radio station like white noise trying to change channels and goes into my pop section so it’s like pop radio and then half way through it goes back to radio station white noise and it goes to my rock section which is my rock radio. So it’s literally a pop rock record.
PZO: Do you have any collaborations?
Fefe: It’s not really collabos. Orianthi plays guitar on one of the tracks [“Can’t Breathe”], Kevin Rudolph you know did “Ghost”. It was a lot of great producers and stuff, but I didn’t really do any collaborations on this album. Maybe my next record I’ll start hitting up the collabos.

PZO: It’s pretty awesome that you’re able to do your own music and also be able to write songs for other artists. Are you working on anything new for anyone right now?
Thank you. Yeah, hopefully I will write some more. I’d love to do something for the Britney Spears album. That would be a dream to write something for Britney. We’ll see, you know? Every day offers a new blessing and just something new, so we’ll see.

PZO: What would be your pitch to get someone to buy your album when it comes out on November 30th?
I would just do the Nike pitch. “Just do it”.
