WHO IS JENNY JC!! HEYDOYOU: DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FASHION AND YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
JENNY JC: I am married to fashion. Fashion is like my spouse and part of my daily routine. Everyday I wake up, and appreciate that I have my own personal style. Fashion and style is like second nature to me and it shows the world how versatile and brave I AM!! My personal style is defined as versatile from sexy, cute, stylish to rebellious, retro, comedic or fly and flashy. I can't really categorize my style under one certain type but I'm very creative. I've started trends and will continue to be a Fashion Icon because people love to watch my Fashion and Style!!
HEYDOYOU: WHAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS FOOD AND DO YOU COOK
JENNY JC: Attitude with food is HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY! Haha! I absolutely love food and eating it! Do I cook? This is a question my family and friends will laugh at, they'll tell you the truth and it's NO! I will cook someday but not today! I mean I made lasagna from scratch ONCE and it turned out very well. I live a busy lifestyle, the entertainment industry lifestyle so cooking isn't a priority at the moment.
HEYDOYOU: TOP 5 TUNES ON YOUR IPOD
JENNY JC: 1. Miss Independent by Ne-yo 2. Whatever you like by Rihanna and T.I. 3. Green Light by John Legend and Andre 3000 4. Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson 5. I wonder if I take you home by Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam
HEYDOYOU: WHAT'S YOUR DRINK WITH THE GIRLS/WITH THE GUYS/AT HOUSE PARTY/AT THE CLUB
JENNY JC: My drink would be bottled spring water especially the Nestle pure life brand cause I DISLIKE Dasani. Other drinks I would have are orange and cranberry juice. I don't drink alcohol. I don't need alcohol to have fun cause I have a "natural high".=)
HEYDOYOU: EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH A TRY - HOW DID YOU GET STARTED DOING WHAT YOU LOVE
JENNY JC: I began doing what I love which is everything dealing with entertainment such as dancing, modeling and fashion. I started dancing in elementary school, I remember everyday at recess time meeting up with my group of friends and making a circle, singing songs and going in the middle of the circle to show off our moves. Dancing was something I really enjoyed doing and will continue to do.
As for modeling, I started in high school and was asked to model in a lot of different fashion shows. It was really fun and I guess it runs in my blood because my mom used to be a model so she taught me different walks and advice on makeup, etc. Of course, I developed my own walk today! But that's funny, I just remembered my mom used to dance as well hahaha she had won Disco dancing awards from competitions and trust me she knows how to Boogie! She's a great inspiration to me! Love ya mommy!
For fashion and style it started from when I could dress myself and do my hair. I remember getting my first Calvin Klein sweater (even though it was a knock-off but who knew?! I wasn't rich, had to feed that piggy bank lol). It was a huge deal for me because that was a big fashion brand and with me being who I am, I had to have it. Fashion was important to me at such a young age, that I think my parents didn't get me name brand items on purpose, despite financial situations, worried that I would turn into a label-junkie. To this day, I'm not a label-junkie but I'm not totally against it either. I remember I used to take forever in the mornings for elementary school up to high school to do my hair and get my outfit, I always had my hair in something different like braids, ponytail, those coloured string things you twist in your hair, it was all a part of my style and fashion. I also remember when my parents told me not to wear something (might be revealing), but I would never listen unless they ripped it off me. I was very stubborn and still can be but I did what I wanted! Overall, dancing, modeling, and fashion was always in my blood and will continue to flow in my veins!!
HEYDOYOU: BAHAMAS BEACH BUNNY OR STYLISH SNOWY SOHO
JENNY JC: Bahamas Beach Bunny ALL THE WAY!!! I DETEST the cold and looking all bulky with layers, sweaters and parkas. Don't get me wrong, I still try and look good in winter lol.
HEYDOYOU: Toronto Bars (Your top 2 parties you never miss and why)
JENNY JC: Well, since I'm not being paid to promote/advertise any top bars I won't hahaha plus I don't really have any in mind at the moment. I've missed a bunch of parties, if you asked me 3 years ago I could probably name some like essence (which closed down). The club scene has really changed.
HEYDOYOU: IF YOU WERE A PERFUME WHICH WOULD YOU SMELL LIKE?
JENNY JC: Hmmm, I'm currently enjoying this version called Risky (mainly for the name) I guess you are what you smell like?! So yea, I would smell Risky! ;o)
WHAT'S NEXT FOR JENNY JC
JENNY JC: I look forward to the whole world of entertainment! I've been on television several times whether it be in music videos, modeling on CityTv Breakfast Television or in TV shows and movies. I love what I do. I look forward to my writing, singing career and furthering my dancing, modeling, fashion, acting and hosting career as well as starting my own clothing line. Doors have opened for me and I'm excited to see many more!
I give thanks to God and everyone, especially those who have helped me along the way and those who believe in me and especially those who don't want to believe in me and the haters THANK YOU!!!! To all my fans/supporters, I luv y'all!
