Glam Girl has released her first video “Make Me Famous,” a song which has raised some eyebrows with its controversial take on fame. But, of course, the video wouldn’t be Glam Girl’s without pushing boundaries. The music video features the pop star at her most gloriously provocative as she tries to sign a deal with a record exec: implying sexual acts, a ménage à trois with total strangers in an elevator, showing plenty of skin, and basking in thoughts of voyeurism.

Despite the song’s feel-good, sunny vibe, the video is a dark look at how far the younger generation goes in their quest for fame. Like Glam Girl’s lyrics proclaim “I WANNA BE FAMOUS, I’LL DO ANYTHING TO BE FAMOUS” “We’ve got an entire generation who have grown up with cameras documenting their lives,” says Glam Girl. “Then they look at shows like Jersey Shore or the personalities on YouTube. People are becoming incredibly famous and getting sponsorship deals for being over-the-top versions of themselves. It’s a completely new development in entertainment, and it’s having a crossover effect on attitudes and behavior.”

Glam Girl — who wrote, produced and executive produced the piece — continued to say: “It has been a wonderful experience to record this song and make the music video. I’m looking forward to sharing this video with the world. It’s my favorite song off the EP and I hope my tongue-in-cheek message is taken to heart.”

Glam Girl‘s first video “Make Me Famous,” is a clip that has raised some eyebrows with its controversial take on fame. Watch as the provocatively primped pop star tries to sign a deal with record label execs by implying sexual acts while desperately whining: “I wanna be famous, I’ll do anything to be famous.”

The press release for the electro-pop track describes the song as being ”feel-good” and “sunny” despite the dark undertones of the subject matter that concerns how far the younger generation will go in their quest for fame.

Glam Girl — who wrote, produced and executive produced the piece shares: “It has been a wonderful experience to record this song and make the music video. I’m looking forward to sharing this video with the world. It’s my favorite song off the EP and I hope my tongue-in-cheek message is taken to heart.”

Glam Girl’s EP Think My Clothes Off was released this Fall. For more information regarding Glam Girl, visit her official website, here. - We Heart Pop

Q: If you could classify your music in a genre or a number of genres what would it be?
Mainly top 40 pop with some electronica and urban influences

Q: If you could use a tagline of less than 20 words to describe your music and who you are what would it be?
A Hollywood chick not gone Hollywood, who tells you how it is on pop high energy club beats and melody.

Q: What is your musical background?
I grew up in a family that didn’t nurture music or any form of arts or sports but I was always drawn to anything that involved music, dance and sports. Once I left my parents home at the age of 18, I immediately submerged myself in a 24/7 boot camp of vocal and dance training. I won a music scholarship in Europe and afterwards enrolled in the Musician Institute in Hollywood where I graduated with a 3.8 GPA degree in the IAP Program. My first vocal coach introduced me to the old jazz standards, and I fell in love with Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald-- their tone of voice was so mesmerizing. After that phase, I got into dance music, neo-soul, R&B, pop, electronica. Originally all I wanted to do was just be a singer, but eventually, because I know exactly what I like and what I want, I also became a writer and a producer, and the rest is history, ha ha.

Q: How was 2010 for you?
Considering that in 2010 I was just getting my feet wet, it has been an amazing year, full of accomplishments and full of blood, sweat and tears as well, and yes I would do it all over again.

Q: Who inspires you musically?
Timbaland, Mariah Carey, among others

Q: Which modern day artists do you look up to?
Jessie J, she’s a true artist

Q: Is there anyone you would like to collaborate or gig with?
Definitely Jessie J

Q: What songs are on your ipod at the moment?
Well I’ve got over 3,000 songs on my ipod, of course Jessie J Abracadabra, Do it like a dude, Nobody’s perfect, Mamma knows best, Trey Songz: Bottoms up, One Call: Blacklight, Katy Perry -- Kaskade Club remix: Teenage Dream, Ne-Yo: Cause I said so, Beautiful monster, Eminem: Not afraid, J Rae: Price Tag it’s Jessie J’s song remix, lately I’m into a lot of fitness remixes. Well if you don’t stop me, I can go on and on for hours.

Q: What is your creative process for creating a track?
99% of the time I produce a track first and after I write melody and lyrics. But there have been a few times when I had a melody stuck in my head and I built a track around that melody. The crazy thing is that the times I came up with a melody first, was while I was asleep, those notes were so strong they woke me up in the middle of the night and I had to turn my iphone on and record it before I would forget.

Q: What’s more important, melody or lyrics?
To me they are both really important, I definitely can’t stand stupid / empty lyrics, like when I wrote my current single “Make Me Famous.” Yes the chorus purposely repeats “I wanna be famous, I’ll do anything to be famous, make me famous, make me famous, make me famous,” but the verses paint a picture of people who strive to be famous without having anything to bring to the table, who will do anything in their quest for fame. My songs all have a story and / or a message. In addition, a catchy melody and hot beat are a must! All those elements combined are what make a hit song. When people listen to a song they want to relate to the story you are telling or they wanna take their minds off the BS they deal in their everyday lives.

Q: Where are you based?
Los Angeles

Q: What’s it like being where you’re from?
Well L.A. is one of the toughest city on the planet, one of the most competitive, the bar is set very, very high here………this is a place overcrowded with thousands of people trying to do the same thing you are trying to do. That’s why the entire industry are cruelly pimping the artists. This is a city where if you wanna play in a club, it’s strictly pay for play. You wanna get some press or radio play, just throw the Benjamins and all doors will be opened to you. That’s why the majority of the new and up and coming artists making it right now are the rich kids……….What pisses me off is that they don’t really care about the music, they are in it just because it’s cool being in the music industry and they got money to blow, just something to think about …………..In case you are wondering where I belong, well I got no sugar daddy or rich parents, wasn’t born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest, or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom. I’m doing this the way you are supposed to. I played and I bombed in every club in town, and then killed it in every club. I knocked on every door, looked for every opportunity and didn’t take no for an answer, and kept going no matter what, and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail, and figured out who I am as a singer and performer. I work hard to always take it to the next level.”

Q: What are you currently working on?
About to release my debut EP. Stay tuned for the title announcement in the weeks to come. I’m promoting my first music video, “Make Me Famous,” in pre production on my second music video and in production on my second EP.


Glam Girl - "Make Me Famous" Video Still

Glam Girl - "Make Me Famous" Video Still

Q: What’s been the highlight of your career to date?
Actually, there have been quite a few in just a short amount of time:
At the 18th Billboard World Song Contest, the judges comment was, “Make Me Famous”: “Strong commercial pop appeal. Very original and creative.”
Opened for Bone Thugs N’ Harmony
Been featured on 350 Clear Channel radio station in the U.S.
Getting airplay in Sweden, UK, Netherlands

Q: What are you hoping to achieve in 2011?
The sky’s the limit. It would be nice to be nominated for a Grammy. A lot of people will answer “releasing my album,” but that’s the easiest thing to achieve. For me it will be dropping my EP and selling thousands of copies, increasing my fan base, getting airplay in other countries, getting endorsement deals, placing my songs on film and television, anything I can possibly put my mind and my hands on.

Q: Do you have any gigs or shows that you’d like to tell us about?
I’m playing at The Joint on May 22, 8771 West Pico Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90035. Tickets can purchased on my site www.glamgirlmusic.com

Q: What do you do to relax?
I wish I would have time to relax, but there’s no sleep for big dreams, all I do is work. But I’m not complaining at all, this is what I love to do. Even if I don’t have the time now, these are the things I luv to do: Play video games, I’m a PlayStaion 3 & PSP chick (favorite games: every Metal Gear & Metal Gear Acid, every Call of Duty, Resident Evil, every Socom). Sleep as much as I can when I get the chance, catch some movies, Listen to music… yes, you heard it correctly, even if make music I still love listen to other people’s music. Traveling, Sports, Kick-boxing, Sky Diving, Working out, Go-Karts, playing Black Jack, Good Food (favorite food Sushi, Thai), Cooking, Swimming with Dolphins, Rescue Dogs, Paintball, Trying to make a better world.

Just because it is April doesn’t mean our Music March Madness has ended. We are excited to bring you the talents of this next artist/music producer to our online publication. Meet Glam Girl the new Indie pop sensation that is taking the Indie Music Industry by storm.

With a style that is a cross between Janet Jackson and Rihanna, fans will enjoy the wonderful fresh sounds of this artist’s music. In this recent spotlight with Glam Girl, the rising star speaks openly about her quest for stardom.

Isaac: It’s an amazing time to be a DIY artist/performer/band/musician. What do you feel you contribute musically to the Indie Music Culture?

Glam Girl: Hopefully something new, something fresh.

Isaac: If you had an opportunity to sign with a major label, would you sign now knowing you may have to give up some of what you have build up over the years about you in the process?

Glam Girl: I don’t think so. I will sign only if I will be able to keep my masters and have my label in the mix as well. These days 99% of up and coming artists are forced to sign a 360 deal, meaning labels now take money even from your tour, merchandise, ringtones; you name it. What’s the point killing yourself just to make somebody else rich?

Isaac: I remembered Simon Cowell from American Idol talking about the “it” Factor that makes a musician/band stand out. What do you think is your “it” factor that makes you stand out from others in the music business?

Glam Girl: This is one of the biggest challenges these days, how to get noticed by the audience? How do you stand out from the other thousands of artists out there? After someone shows up in a meat dress, how you gonna top that. In the entertainment business, everything imaginable has been done and redone already. I think that it’s gonna get to the point that in order to get people’s attention someone will skin himself on live TV.

Aura, confidence, strong personality and image, let’s not forget to add to the mix a catchy song, shake it and you’ll have my IT factor.

Isaac: One of the one important element that will make you stand out from the rest of the musicians/artist in the music industry?

Glam Girl: The majority of the artists, especially the up and coming, try to come out copying established artists. To me, it’s pointless trying to be Lady Gaga when there’s already one Lady Gaga out there. I’m not and never have been a follower. I always have been the one setting a trend. I always have been the one people copied. People, when they listen to my music, all say it’s different, even if I’m very commercial. I always strive to create my own sound in my vocals and in my production.

Isaac: Do you feel you have given it your best when pursuing your musical dreams so far? Why or why not?

Glam Girl: Definitely yes! From day one, I’ve been given 1,000%. For the past year, I’ve worked 17 hours a day, never took a day off, had no personal life, just been working my ass off 24/7, and gave my all, knocked on every single door, explored every single possibility, did tons of research, rehearsed a million times to reach perfection. No regrets or complaints at all, this is what I want to do, and I’m fortunate enough that I have the chance to go after my dreams. I am also featured on 350 US radios to date.

Isaac: Who do you look up to for your own influences and why?

Glam Girl: There are so many people that I look up to. As for music producers, it’s Timbaland. As for the artists: Whitney Huston, when she was Whitney, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Sade and many more.

Isaac: Do you feel that Indie music gets the respect it deserves? Why or why not?

Glam Girl: The music biz has changed drastically and is still changing. If you just look at the past Grammy’s, unexpectedly The Suburbs won “Album of the year.” This would have never happened 10 years ago. So, yes, Indie music is starting to get respect, and it will gain more and more as the years will go by, till we get to the point that music will be only indie, existing labels will disappear, and the new labels will serve more as a helper to the artist rather than an owner of the artist. This new label will assist with marketing, bookings, networking and the other promotional aspects of the music business. But instead of owning all the rights to the artist, musicians will pay their labels for their help and the musicians will retain their rights.

Isaac: If you could change one thing about the music business, what would it be and why?

Glam Girl: The people that gravitate around it. The “why” will just open a Pandora’s box and we’ll be here talking for months, let’s just leave it as It is.

Isaac: What has been one of your biggest setbacks and how did you overcome it? What lesson did you learn about yourself?

Glam Girl: The biggest obstacle I constantly face is being taking seriously as a music producer. I’m an attractive girl and get some respect and props as a music producer, that’s the biggest challenge. What did I learn? Just believe in yourself and keep delivering high quality music that will shut everyone up.

Isaac: What type of feedbacks have you been receiving about your music from fans and music critics?

Glam Girl: So far very positive. Without the support of a major label behind me, in just a few months I have already accomplished big things. My single, “Make Me Famous,” is being played in constant rotation on radio stations in Sweden, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Italy and the U.S. In conjunction with the radio play, I’m opening for big acts like Bone Thugs N’ Harmony, Omarion, and Marques Huston.

At the 18th Billboard World Song Contest, even if I did not place in the top 3 in my category, the judges comment was, "Make Me Famous: Strong commercial pop appeal. Very original and creative." It also received great reviews on iTunes and YouTube.

Isaac: If you knew that you would never gain fame and fortune with what you are doing now, would you continue to make music? Explain.

Glam Girl: This is one of the reasons why the music industry is where it is right now. Unfortunately, these days everybody and their mama want to be singers or producers, so the market is over saturated. Most of the people in this industry are in it for the wrong reasons!

I can't deal with the greed! That's why I just do me, and stay true to myself and to my vision! Everyone claims to want to be famous but can't deal with PRESSURE, HARD WORK and MUCH MORE and got NOTHING to bring to the table ... ShowBiz ain't for everybody!!

Music is a part of me, is what I breath, is in my blood, is what I do 24/7. And it’s not for the fame and fortune, ‘cause, especially when you are an up and coming artist, it’s all struggle, no one is willing to give you a penny, no one will believe in you. And this is the real test for who is in it for the right reason.

It just really upsets me when I see a lot of singers or actors who have made it, and all they do with their success is just simply destroy themselves when there are tons of people that will kill just to have the chance to be where they are. That’s why I wrote “Make Me Famous.” I was just sick and tired of watching all those untalented people becoming famous overnight for no reason, like the Kardashian sisters, the Jersey Shore kids, Willo Smith. So I decided to write a song about it.

Isaac: How do you handle negative feedback or negative energy about your music?

Glam Girl: Not everyone is gonna like everyone, and everyone is entitled to an opinion. I'm human and humans are way too far from being perfect. Negative comments or feedback? It just depends from who they are coming from. If they come from someone that I look up to, and they know what they are talking about, I take them in serious consideration and use them as a constructive criticism to be better. If they come from someone that is just hating for the sake of it because they are miserable with their life, I don’t pay any attention.

And actually the more someone tells me I can’t the more I’m gonna prove that person wrong. Don’t forget that I live in one of toughest cities on the planet: Hollywood, The Land of "NO" & "YOU CAN'T.” Also I’ve been trained by rejection since I was a kid, ‘cause the first people who have been negative and been really hard of me were my parents. Life is 10% what it does to you and 90% how you respond to challenges.

Isaac: What role do your family and friends play in the equation of your pursuant of a music career?

Glam Girl: I grew up in a family that didn’t nurture arts or sports, but I always was drawn to anything that involved music, dance, acting and sports. I never got any support from friends and family. When I was a little kid I wanted to be an actress, and I remember saying that to my parents, and my father said to me: “Who the f.....k you think you are, you are nothing.” Those words might have hurt at the time but those words are what fueled me all my life to prove to my lovely father that he was wrong.

The majority of my friends have not supportive either, because, according to them, making it in the music or entertainment business is almost impossible and blah blah blah. Most people DON'T SEE what you see for your life. Their mission will be to TALK you OUT of your Dreams and VISIONS. And If you don't move on your dreams, you gonna keep waking up everyday at 6 am working for SOMEONE ELSE WHO DID!!!

Isaac: What is the best site/s that you can be found on the Internet?

Glam Girl: There are different sites where I can be found:

Isaac: The floor is yours; final words & wisdom of thoughts...

Glam Girl: An old Indian told his grandchildren, "In every human life is a terrible struggle. A battle between two wolves. One: fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment and betrayal. The second: Joy, LOVE, humility, trust, generosity, truth and compassion. "One of the children asked: "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old looked at him in the eye and replied: "The one you feed." - Junior's Cave Magazine


What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Who are your major influences?Do you have a record label? Straight up pop with some electronica and urban influences. I have so many influences among artists and producers. I listen to artists from Sarah Vaughn to Timbaland. A few times I even bought a few songs of artists that I do not like at all, but at the time they had a great single, so I went for it.

Yes, I do have my own label, in production right now on a couple of albums.

What can you tell me about your instruments? (i.e., is it brand loyalty or will you play withwhatever'savailable?) What made you choose the instruments you have now? Was it cost, style, personaltaste, playability etc…? I don’t play an Instrument but I use plug-ins, and gear for my studio. I do have some brands that I’m totally craze about. As a producer I love Native Instruments, I’m a big fan of Massive, Battery, Urban Arsenal. My choice is due to my personal taste and the brand style.

Do you have any upcoming shows? I’m getting ready to go on tour in the US, Sweden, UK and Italy. My booking agent is finalizing the dates as we speak, so stay tuned.

Who writes your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs? Do you think these topics will change over time? I write and produce all my songs. I like to create stuff that I know, things that have happened to me or to someone that I know, things that are part of our culture. I tell it how it is, without sugarcoating and I don’t like to use cliché phrasing. I’m a visual person, so I like my verses to be very detailed, like a movie scene. They will change because I always write about what is relevant to me at the time.

How has your music evolved since you first began writing? Of course my music has evolved because life, music, character are about evolution. A person that doesn’t evolve is not alive.

What is the ultimate direction for you as an artist/band? Are you seeking fame and fortune? What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands or get started as a solo artist? My ultimate goal as an artist and producer is to have at least one Grammy. I know a lot of artists who say that but the majority never go after what they say they want. But this is what I really want and I’m willing to keep on working until it will become reality.

Not too long ago when major labels dominated, there where perhaps 30-40 superstar artists, everybody elsenot part of that list the chance to be known was almost impossible. So the new millennium came and things changed. Slowly the majors started disappearing and everybody and their mama wanted to be an artist, and now the new trend is to be producers cause artists think they’ll hit the Lotto producing. The industry has changed drastically, and is still changing. As it is for everything, there are so many pros and cons. There are way more opportunities these days for up and coming artists, but on the other hand the market is over- saturated. So if before you were competing against 10 people now you are competing against hundreds, thousands. The other down side is that the level now is the lowest ever.

How can fans-to-be gain access to your music? Do you have a website with sample songs or a demo CD? Can your fans hear you on the radio? My single “Make Me Famous” is in stores now. To to:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/make-me-famous/id381599071

“Make Me Famous” is being played in constant rotation on radio stations in Sweden, UK, Italy and the U.S. So, guys keep on calling your local station and request “Make Me Famous.”

Is there anyone you'd like to acknowledge for offering financial or emotional support? There are a few people that absolutely deserve to be acknowledge for believing in me: Darryl Swann has helped me become a better artist and a better producer and I’m very grateful. In one word, meeting Darryl: priceless, he’s my backbone, my mentor, I like to call him my lil’ angel. - Music Lunge


Glam Girl, singer/songwriter and music producer, has released her first single, “Make Me Famous” now available on iTunes, Amazon and Napster.

“Make Me Famous” is a biting criticism of people who strive to be famous without having anything to bring to the table, who will do anything in their quest for fame.

Glam Girl’s music and lyrics explore various modes of expression to create a fresh, sexy feel employing both electronic and organic elements, with subject matter ranging from playful to introspective. “It combines a whole new mix of different genres, from pop to a touch of electronica, some dance combined with some R&B and neo-soul,” says Glam Girl.

While honing her music skills, Glam Girl has worked as a professional model around the world and has been published in top magazines including Max, Amica, Allure and 100 Cose. Along the way, she was introduced to independent record producer Darryl Swann (who has worked with such artists as Macy Gray, Erykha Badu, the Black-Eyed Peas, Mos-Def and John Frichante of Red Hot Chili Peppers). Swann admired her voice and image and inspired her to pursue her music and assisted in the production of “Make Me Famous.”

“Darryl has helped me become a better artist and a better producer and I’m very grateful. In one word, meeting Darryl: priceless.”

“Working on this album with some talented producers that I admire was really an amazing experience. The producer-mixing engineer I chose to work with added so many unique sonic layers to ‘Make Me Famous.’ My intention was to step into his world and combine his skills and talent with my own vision and sound. The results were magic,” says Glam Girl.

Working out of her home studio, Glam Girl is producing her debut album “Think My Clothes Off” for an anticipated end of summer release.

“I’m looking forward to influencing others in a positive way,” says Glam Girl. “My message is you can do anything if you just put your mind to it. Growing up, all that I kept hearing was ‘no you can’t,’ and those three words made me stronger as a person and served to build my character.”

Why this name?
I didn't choose this name, pretty much the name chose me. Everyone says that the name Glam Girl fits me has a glove, due to my sense of fashion and to my sex appeal.
Do you play live?
Yeah I will start in the next few weeks playing live in LA, at the moment I'm rehearsing with the band. I love playing live but I also love been in the studio.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The industry has changed drastically, and is still changing. As for everything there are so many pros and cons. There are way more opportunities those days for up and coming artists, but on the other end the market is over saturated, now everybody and their mama wanna be artists or music producers. So if before you were competing against 10 people now you are competing against hundred thousands of people. The other down side is that the level now is the lowest ever.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Absolutely NO.

Bio

Like a cool glass of fresh lemonade, Glam Girl arrives just in time to quench the thirst of parched pop lovers, craving the next female show-stopper. A bit more tart than sweet, she writes and sings what the new generation thinks with a bold attitude that empowers young girls to stand strong and never take “ish” from anyone, especially boys.

For years Glam Girl has chased the only dream she knows is certain. Glam Girl grew up in a family that didn’t nurture arts or sports but she always was drawn to anything that involved music, dance and sports. Once she left her parents home at the age of 18, Glam Girl immediately submerged herself in a 24/7 boot camp of vocal and dance training. She won a music scholarship in Europe and afterwards enrolled in the Musician Institute in Hollywood where she graduated with a 3.8 GPA degree in the independent Artist Program.

Glam Girl is a quadruple threat artist: Singer, Songwriter, Music Producer and Dancer. She released her debut single, “Make Me Famous,” in July, followed by her ten-song debut record, “Think My Clothes Off,” in the fall for which she wrote all the music and lyrics as well as produced. Her debut single, "Make Me Famous," is a biting criticism of people who strive to be famous without having anything to bring to the table, who will do anything in their quest for fame.

Glam Girl involved several key collaborators on the album, including Darryl Swann, Grammy Award-winning independent record producer and audio engineer who has worked with such artists as Macy Gray, producer Rick Rubin, Mos-Def, John Frichante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Erykah Badu, the Black Eyed Peas, and Paul Blake Weinstein, a songwriter/producer at Timbaland productions.
Also featured on the album is world famous guitarist Jay Williams who played for Boyz II men, Whitney Houston, Tamia, Kelly Price, Melanie Fiona, Sisco, Monteil Jordan and many others.

For her next recording session, Glam Girl will collaborate with Grammy Award-winning Hip Hop/R&B record producer and songwriter Manuel Seal. Formerly a contract songwriter and producer at So So Def Recording, Seal has written and co-written many hit songs including Usher’s "You Make Me Wanna," "Nice and Slow" and "My Way"; Destiny Child’s "With Me," "My Boo"; and Mariah Carey’s number one singles "Always Be My Baby" and "We Belong Together." 

Without the support of a major label behind her, in just a few months Glam Girl is becoming the new rising pop star on the music scene. “Make Me Famous” is being played in constant rotation on radio stations in Sweden, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Italy and the U.S.
This singular rising pop star hasn’t been plucked from a model casting call, born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest, or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom. “I’m doing this the way you are supposed to. I played and I bombed in every club in town, and then killed it in every club. I knocked on every door, looked for every opportunity and didn’t take no for an answer, and kept going no matter what, and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail, and figured out who I am as a singer and performer. I work hard to always take it to the next level.”
Glam Girl knows what she wants, and is poised to get it. “As for the boys? They all come and go, but my career is here to stay.”
