“Candles have always been a mainstay for me – home, on tour in hotel rooms, dressing rooms, green rooms.. you name it. Creating peaceful spaces that also smell good – this is a natural new step for me to expand into the home and wellness marketplace and taking the time spent at home during this pandemic to pivot a bit in my business.”
“..no one is as passionate about my career as I am. It’s me, self-expression, something I’ve wanted since I was 5… Nobody knows better than me if you look a certain way you’re going to be fighting to prove you’re smart..You grit your teeth and get on with it
but it’s always there..
just like I always feel the distinction of being a black person. On several occasions as an example sitting on an airplane in first class and they go -let me see your boarding pass like I’m sitting on the wrong seat..”
“..if I’m good to myself, I’ll be good to everyone else..I want to be remembered for what I have to say as Jody Watley the singer – songwriter – not the former dancer with Shalamar.” – Jody Watley
Whenever I look back on interviews for these throwbacks.. it’s good to know that though I continue to evolve .. my essence remains pure and intact. No BS.
