“..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.

So excited!! My “Sanctuary” Luxury Home Fragrance has arrived the bottle is beautiful and the scent smells divine very subtle notes of green tea, lemon zest and vanilla to match the luxury soy candle. Sensuous and calming – The fragrance will be available soon in my limited edition store :: jodywatleyshop.com along with the candle which just went live in the store last week!
You can also use this as a body spray as well.
It’s always good to create a peaceful interior environment that also smells good too – longtime must haves for me and so it feels natural to be able to expand into this lifestyle area of wellness for you all to enjoy – in addition to other Jody Watley branded items I have available. Throughout my adult home life, and career travel, backstage in my dressing room – candles and interior sprays have been a staple to create an environment that feels peaceful and smells good too. Growing up my son and daughter’s friends would always call our home ‘the peaceful house and traveling I’d always get that my room always made the hallway smell good and backstage at venues which are often not glamorous and unpleasant making me always travel with scents and candles that bring calm and peace.
To begin to bring this part of my passion to you now in these challenging times, to encourage you and be a part of creating greater peace and tranquility is very special.
