Mya Talks Music, Fashion and Rumors

Mya may have once thought “It’s all about me, me, me” but she certainly gives off the vibe that she’s as humble as pie. After watching YouTube (yup, she’s a fan too!), she sat down with Singersroom for a playful peek into her world. Find out what the beautiful, talented and mature songstress had to say.

Singersroom: I remember when you first came out over 10 years ago with “It’s All About Me.” How have you evolved as an artist and a woman since then?

Mya: I believe it was 12 years ago in 1998, Valentine’s Day to be exact. Well I’ve evolved in the sense that I now wear a size 7 instead of a 4, and I’m 20 pounds heavier. Otherwise, I’m the same girl. True evolution at its best!

Singersroom: When you look back at the course of your career, what was your most memorable moment and why?

Mya: Hmm, when I locked myself into the bathroom for quite some time at the office of a particular company to refrain from spazzing out. I thought I might’ve gone to jail that night if I didn’t count to 10,000.

Singersroom: You always look amazing on the red carpets. What’s your secret to looking stylish all the time?

Mya: I have no amazing secrets. I eat like a normal person, do my own make-up and hope to get lucky with something that fits.

Singersroom: What’s the craziest rumor you’ve ever heard about yourself?

Mya: All of them have been crazy, outrageous and pretty hilarious. That’s why they’re rumors.

Singersroom: There were also rumors once about you being pregnant? Any truth to that?

Mya: Yup, I have 6 children now. Check out the North Shore Animal League flyer for the “family portrait.” [laughs]

Singersroom: That’s funny. Ok so are you currently dating anyone?

Mya: Yes I am. I see her in the mirror every morning. And sometimes she gets on my nerves! Divorce papers as we speak, ugh!

Singersroom: Now that you’re 30, is there anything you know now that you wish you had known at 20?

Mya: Absolutely not! I believe too much information and knowledge at a young age takes away the fun and spice out of life.

Singersroom: You were the runner-up on Dancing with the Stars last year. Did you feel like you deserved the #1 spot?

Mya: Absolutely not! Donny Osmond was the true winner in my book for several reasons. I couldn’t have done what he did with the travel schedule he kept.

Singersroom: What did you like best about being on the show?

Mya: I enjoyed getting to eat what the heck I wanted and not feel guilty about it! Oh yeah and the glitter and stones and fringe!

Singersroom: You’re quite the philanthropist. What type of charity work are you currently involved in?

Mya: I am currently involved with The Mya Arts & Tech Foundation (www.tmatf.org), North Shore Animal League America (www.animalleague.org), and Africare (www.Africare.org).

Singersroom: What can we expect to see from Mya next?

Mya: Whatever you happen to stumble upon from me, enjoy it at your leisure. But you can absolutely expect to see me on the beach sipping a cocktail with my pinky finger out, at a Krispy Kreme going through a drive-through, going into rehab (just kidding!), walking the aisles of a pet supply store or at a Baptist church on a Sunday. Also, I am shooting the video for “Love is the Answer” with Cedric Gervais this month so my fans can look out for that.
