During her Blank magazine photo shoot Cassie gave a preview of her single “Make You A Believer” featuring Jadakiss off her upcoming album and chatted with the magazine about what fans can expect from her album, acting, working with Lisa Price and more.
On her dream collaboration: Prince would be amazing. Isn’t that everyone’s answer to that?
On what fans can expect from her new album: Its top secret! (smiles) I’m going to let the music speak for itself. The one thing I will say is I love it.
On her pre-stage rituals: Chill with my friends catch a vibe… I don’t need much. Candles, candy, wine and before I even think about hitting the stage- a prayer.
On working with Carol’s Daughter founder Lisa Price: She is just really kind, talented and its great to see how far a girl and a dream can get.
On pursuing acting: I’ve done a few things. I would love to act more; film is ideal for me. Its something I want to devote more time to – for sure. I would love to work with David Fincher or Oliver Stone.
On the pros and cons of being a quadruple threat: Wow that sounds pretty epic. I don’t know that I see it that way. Honestly, I feel blessed that I get to do what I do and be creative that I just try to focus on constantly growing and being the best Cassie I can be.
On what she would do if she could not be a performer: I’d be a chef or a museum owner I’m into modern art.
On taking a risk by shaving her head: My hair wasn’t a risk to me. I just did it. Loved it, still love it actually. And am I a risk taker?! You gotta live, no risk no reward. Life is boring if you paint inside the lines.
