The Litterboxx – Episode 38 with Justina Valentine

Justina - Press PhotoEarly on in my life, I attempted to make being a musician my livelihood and was quickly brought up to speed with how much of a real hustle it is. When I met Justina Valentine in college I was in the thick of MAKING THE BAND MAKE IT MANNNN and was struck by her husky voice, irreverence for anything actually going on in class (my presence was questionable as well) and obvious love for music. Us Jersey girls, we’re resilient and persevere through it all. I’ve watched her career blossom over the past few years and have run into her in a variety of music realms including Warped Tour, many musical nooks of NJ and now in LA, post wrapping production on MTV’s Wild’n Out. She’s a babe and quite the character. Justina Valentine always keeps it interesting and sexy. Check out my chat with her about JERSEY, making it in this biz, some of the real trials and tribulations, as well as her experience filming and continuing to make music. SHE MADE IT MAN.

The Litterboxx – Episode 37 with Jax

When I was younger, being on American Idol seemed like the dream. It was a place where anyone could flex their talent, embrace their unique style and put it to the test in front of all of America to see. That’s no pussy shit, it’s a true look into someone’s ability to deliver their talent on the spot. On this episode I sat down with a fellow Jersey girl and musician Jax, who brought that dream to life. We discuss life on Idol and after, as well as the many amazing perks and friendships that come along with the lifestyle. Jax recounts the motivation behind her songwriting and how trying yet beneficial her time honing in on her skills was. We discuss dating as musicians (god knows I had many bad calls under my belt) and the glorious fuckery that has crossed our paths. It’s hard being young, deep and talented. Jeez 🙂

One of my fave chats this wear, grab some popcorn and join the clam gang.

The Litterboxx – Episode 36 with CeCe The Mamacita (Cecilia Valencia)

IMG_7119When I moved to LA, one of the biggest holes that formed in my life was my lack of bold, spicy, hilarious and lovable Latina girlfriends. As a woman who always grew up with the Spasian influence, my entire life has been surrounded by Latina’s with the biggest hearts, babeliest faces and feistiest attitudes. The phrase “I’ll cut you” is some real shit to me.

So when CeCe came across my way I jumped at the chance, not only is she a fellow media and radio personality, but I could feel the depth of her vibes and the genuine quality behind her intentions. In this episode we talk being ethnic ladies in this industry, what it’s like to be on the frontlines (including the good and the bad times) and her upcoming book with Yesi Ortiz that highlights some of the most outrageous dating stories. We talk about her impressive radio career, correspondent gigs for NUVO and Fox 11, as well as all kinds of other hilarious lady experiences. Kindred spirits of the fiery kind.

Check Cece out on socials and listen to her on KDLA every weekday!

The Litterboxx – Episode 35 with Charlie Bellmore / Jasta

On this episode I take The Litterboxx to NAMM to check out the fresh selection of gear geekery. On my quest to find something interesting, I chat with my homeboy Charlie Bellmore who slings the axe for Jasta and Kingdom of Sorrow and plays live with many different bands. He also dons the production hat, as many musicans eventually do. Overall great guy who has worked his ass off to live the dream of making music. Warning, it’s a total bro down.

greyClam chat is back for 2016 and I sit down with my good friend Alison to talk about being a strong woman in a creative field of work. We discuss the difficulties of switching career gears, myself with being a DJ and her life change, heading up marketing for Affliction.

The Litterboxx – Episode 32 with Matt Swain / Black Space Odyssey

MATT SPACE, ODYSSEY
MATT SPACE, ODYSSEY
In life, you’re pressed to find a few solid people you find hilarious. I have been blessed to find some of the most ridiculous assholes to surround myself with, who not only are talented in a number of artistic areas but can actually cope with my hellish, jerk sense of humor (EAST COAST BB). I have my good friend Matt Swain back on to talk about a myriad of bullshit on my last trip to NYC. We talk about the golden era of NU METAL, how ridiculous Times Square is and making it in the music biz. WE ALL KNOW WHAT A FEAT THAT IS.

The Litterboxx – Episode 31 With Shaun Vizzy

yooo

If there is one thing I love doing, it’s dissecting a man’s brain, “Why do dudes do the things they do” is a constant question both my girlfriends and less savvy guy friends keep throwing out there. For this episode, I bring on my boy Shaun who works with a myriad of artists but balances life on the line of metal and hip-hop, just like myself. Shaun talks about getting engaged in a very public way from a guys perspective. For all you rock ladies, pretty much the dream proposal. I guess not all guys suck ass.

We chat working in metal and hip-hop, how music plays into our lives and learning the everyday art of hustling. He’s put in work with Sid from Slipknot and producing videos for BReal TV, best of all he’s a funny ass motherfucker. Listen in + check him out on Twitter + IG @shaunvizzy https://twitter.com/ShaunVizzy

Check out an interview Shaun did with Jon Davis from KORN + Eddie from Suicide Silence.

The Litterboxx – Episode 30 With Gavlyn

All my life I’ve had chola ambitions. Somewhere in the mix of my Spasian background it seemed a natural transition. There’s been hints of it. I did have buttole-esque lips in the 90’s and a love of cheap doorknockers in the 00’s. These days however, I just live vicariously through the youth.

12119140_917634684958180_7223910756610191336_n-1

When I met Gavlyn she struck me as my dream mini-cholita. Her attitude, voice, world view – it was all pure heart and kinda badass. Love that style in a time where so many people spend too much time obsessing over perfection instead of taking in the experience. Gavlyn is real deal talent who takes the initiative to move her own brand forward. As you know we on Boxxtalk, take kindly to that sentiment.

She just dropped a new album “Make Up For Your Break Up,” the first from her label Peach House. We’ve all had that breakup that maxes us out at Sephora. True lady shit.

The Litterboxx – Episode 29 with Kenza / Moi Mag

It’s a rarity I meet another woman who can groove out to some hardcore, look like a million bucks and dance her ass off to some hip hop all at the same time. Step in my chica Kenza who works PR for Vans and runs her own femme-posi digital mag, Moi Magazine. We like to talk shit…like, a lot. This episode is no exception so take a seat, things get ridiculous.

11933443_10153627334490970_7011507615091116517_n

We dive into being asked out by the most random dudes and our plenty of dating experiences (+ encounters with fuck bois) in LA and elsewhere. Recalling some embarrassing yet hilarious stories, Kenza dives into being a strong woman but wanting her man to COME CORRECT and loving a little romance (who doesn’t?). As two children of immigrants we talk our upbringings, the importance of a damn good mani and Kenza’s extreme love for pimp DRIZZY aka Drake. If you haven’t watched the “Hotline Bling” video yet, now is the time.

As a fellow curvy, assertive woman Kenza’s talks about her baby, Moi Magazine, which is encouraging body positivism for women of all sizes. Embrace the uniqueness, it’s what makes you YOU. Plus, who doesn’t love a little more booty?

The Litterboxx – Episode 28 with Laura from BReal / Smokebox

On this episode I link with my girl Laura who helps run the ship at BReal TV. She’s lived in NY, Paris and LA – let’s say she has experience dealing with some interesting things around the world. We talk about the magical world of cannabis and what it’s like being someone who doesn’t smoke or drink, constantly around it. Oh, temptation!

We discuss the fun of dating in NYC and LA, Bieber’s massive dick and all the fun things in between. You ever fall out with someone and realize there’s “no new news” to report from them? Welcome to our lives 🙂
