Megan Nicole is a pop singer from Texas, and today, she's the subject of our New Music Now Interview!
batteryPOP: When did you start performing?
Megan Nicole: If you count the performances I put on in my living room, then basically since I could walk and talk. The coffee table was my stage, and I put my parents through shows almost every night. Whether it was a play I wrote or dancing and singing. I always had my younger sister in every "production" as well.
bPOP: Where do you get inspiration for your songs?
MN: I pull inspiration from my own life and just from people and the world around me. The beautiful moments of falling in love, experiencing things for the first time, or the heartbreak and challenges we all struggle with all come into play with the songs I write.
bPOP: If you could write a theme song for any cartoon, what would it be?
MN: If it's a cartoon I came up with it'd be about a girl (who sang) and her pet penguin and the adventures they went on together. Haha I have a bit of an obsession with penguins.
bPOP: What is the funniest thing that's ever happened while you were performing?
MN: I really should start keeping a journal! I know so many crazy things have happened, but I can't always recall them. Recently though, I decided to wear high heels on stage. They were really cute and went well with my outfit. And of course I fell not once, but twice. It was pretty bad, but funny at the same time. I usually wear combat boots when I perform and will definitely stick to that for a while.
bPOP: Where's the weirdest place you've ever performed? And if you could perform anywhere, where would you sing?
MN: The weirdest place I've ever performed would have to be this little place in Houston I would go to for open mics. There is not much of a music scene out there so it was limited on the places that had these opportunities. Let's just say it wasn't the nicest of spots. I would love to one day go to Japan and perform. That would be awesome to go there!
bPOP: If you were a superhero, who (or what) would your sidekick be?
MN:A penguin with super strength. No one would expect anything from a cute little penguin.
bPOP: If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would you sing with, and what would you sing?
MN: I would love to one day perform a duet with Stevie Wonder. He is incredible. I grew up listening to him and being able to sing any song with a legend would be amazing.
bPOP: If you had to start a band that just sang about one thing, what would you sing about, and what would your band's name be?
MN: I think I would call the band I Love. And we would sing about all the things we love. Like food. Chocolate to more specific.
