She is an all-rounded entertainer to watch as she is set to cement herself in the music industry and in the hearts of many for years to come.

StarCentral Magazine recently caught up with DJ Jazzy to discuss her journey in the music industry, and here’s what went down:

How did you get started in the music industry? How were you actually ‘discovered’?

I have been in the music industry since I was 4. Both my mom and dad were creators of a kids’ pop group called “The Star Girls,” which I was a part of. The Star Girls were Aria Nominated and had number 1 hits in Australia, plus toured across Australia and The United States. I was Twinkle Star in the group, and ever since then, I knew that I wanted to be a performer.

What do you like most about singing?

It’s funny because the thing that I most love about singing is the part where I get to perform! I love singing, but I love being on stage the most.

What inspires you to be creative?

So many things inspire me, and they can happen at any moment. I can be inspired by other artists when I see a live show while listening to music, and the list goes on. I am filled with creativity.

Is there anything special that you do to get into a creative mindset?

Creativity just happens naturally, and when you get that spark, you need to focus on it. But there are many moments where I have to force creativity as my work revolves around being creative. Depending on what it is, I have different techniques to get a spark going. If I am songwriting, I love looking at quotes on Pinterest. If it is producing music, listening to samples really get the vibes going for me. If it’s photography, again, Pinterest is my best friend in giving me ideas.

What message, if any, do you try to put into your work?

I am filled with positive messages! I’m super passionate about mental and physical health, and I try to get these messages across through my lyrics and shows. I really love embracing being different, being who you want to be, loving yourself, and feeling confident. So many people have adversities that can be tough to deal with. My messages are not about focusing on the things you can’t control but looking at the things you can.

What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

Nothing has been able to beat touring Australia and the United States when I was a part of “The Start Girls.” I loved being in different places, staying at different hotels, and performing non-stop. I hope I can do that as DJ Jazzy very soon, and it’s 100% a goal of mine!

Do you ever find yourself unable to express your creativity to the fullest? What kinds of things inhibit you?

I have an amazing team behind me, especially my parents, who support me in everything I do. I have never felt there has been anything holding me back from my creativity, and I am very lucky to be able to say that.

Who is your greatest influence?

My mom and dad are my biggest influence. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I take after them in everything I do.

Do you feel that you chose your “passion,” or did it choose you?

It chose me. I have been singing, dancing, and performing before I could even walk and talk. I was always songwriting, scriptwriting, filming, animating, creating music, and so on. I naturally gravitated to it all from such a young age.

If you hadn’t chosen your field, what would your alternate field have been?

I love designing and creating concepts for homes. I probably would have been some type of interior designer.

What is your future? Inside your career or out of it.

I plan to make 2023 the biggest year of my life. I want to build up my development program, “The Day Dreamers,” for young performers. I want to pack out the year with live shows and also get my body feeling the fittest and healthiest it’s ever been! I want to feel strong, feel healthy and take my career to the next level!

Unfortunately, it isn’t the quick fix she had hoped for. Suburbia has a whole new set of rules and a local queen bee, Malvina Monroe (Maya Rudolph), who makes Giselle feel more out of place than ever. Frustrated that her happily ever after hasn’t been so easy to find, she turns to the magic of Andalasia for help, accidentally transforming the entire town into a real-life fairy tale and placing her family’s future happiness in jeopardy. Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after truly means to her and her family. “Disenchanted stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jayma Mays, Gabriella Baldacchino, with Idina Menzel and James Marsden. Directed by Adam Shankman from a screenplay by Brigitte Hales and a story by J. David Stem & David N. Weiss and Richard LaGravenese, “Disenchanted” is produced by Barry Josephson, Barry Sonnenfeld, and Amy Adams, with Jo Burn, Sunil Perkash, and Adam Shankman serving as executive producers.

Spider-Man Star Announces Social Media Break Citing Mental Health Reasons

It’s great to see that we are at a stage where celebrities don’t have to be ashamed of having mental/emotional issues.

Tom Holland recently revealed on his Instagram account why he’s been absent from social media.

“Hello and goodbye… I have been taking a break from social media for my mental health,” Holland revealed via his caption on his three-minute video. He also revealed that his return to Instagram was to help promote the Stem4 charity, a mental health organization he helps support through his The Brothers Trust.

Holland then goes on to explain in his video that he decided to take a break from Instagram and Twitter because he finds them to be “over-stimulating” and “overwhelming.”

He explained, “I get caught up, and I spiral when I read things about me online. And ultimately, it’s very detrimental to my mental state, so I decided to take a step back and delete the app.”

Holland thanked Stem4 for helping him with his mental health issues and hopes to see more young people speak up regarding their own mental health struggles.

He explained that four free apps are available through Stem4, including ones to help young people manage self-harm urges, symptoms of anxiety and increase motivation and low moods. There’s also another one to help family and friends support a young person’s mental health journey.

He further explained that he fully supports Stem4 because “there is an awful stigma against mental health, and I know asking for help and seeking help isn’t something that we should be ashamed of, but it is something that is much easier said than done.”
