Karina Iglesias Interview Part Three

Karina Iglesias

Lesbian Life: I notice you are on Facebook and Myspace…how has these social networks benefited you as an artist?

Karina Iglesias: The social networks especially facebook has been very helpful, I’ve landed several gigs and interviews and met a lot of people through facebook. Somebody saw me at a show and I was contact through facebook and was able to perform my own tunes in DC this past summer, so facebook has been good to me. Facebook does have a calendar and if anyone wants to see quickly where I’m appearing that’s the best way to find out.

You are a beautiful, sassy, sexy women with talent…our readers are going to want to know are you in a relationship?

Yes!

With a women?

Yes I am!

So are you lesbian or bisexual?

Lesbian, (laughing) I don’t have it in me to fall in love with a dude.

Has being lesbian created any barriers for you that you would like to share with our readers, and if so how did you overcome them?

I know sometimes I don’t get certain work because of the way I look. I’m fine with that because at the end of the day I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I’m not that feminine and not that masculine, I’m kind of in between. I want to give 100% but if I am not comfortable you’re only going to get about 50. I’m okay with it, I know other work will come.

So what’s the plan for your career for the next 5 years?

I want to be a part of a major tour, or be the opening act for a major recording artist and I’m putting myself out there enough to where it’s bound to happen. I don’t know if that’s going to be in Miami it could be New York, it could be the West Coast I might just pick up next year and decide to try it someplace else… it might be Atlanta. There could be a niche for Latina Lesbians doing r&b in the ATL. Something about stepping up the game to a higher level is where I will be in the next 5 years, like nationwide level and also record album number two in those five years.

Is your CD titled “THE WAY” your most recent release?

The Way is actually the only album that is out right now on I tunes and CD Baby it was released in 2006. The Way is actually the title track of the album and it’s also one of the tunes on the album. The Way was my tribute to Mr. James Brown because he was an awesome entertainer. He too enjoyed Michael Jackson and I think he is one of the most sampled artists of all times. You can hear him all over any hip hop album in the 90’s. I decided to use that track as the title of the album because the whole recording process was effortless, everything just fell into place that is just the way it was suppose to happen it was just very simple for me. I’m half way through with album number two.

Where can our readers find you on line?

karinaiglesias.com and Facebook.

Is there anything else that I didn’t ask that you want to share with our readers?

If anyone out there have the same goals and aspirations as I do and they want to be a musian your best bet is to follow your gut and work really had. I’ve been doing this for 10 years now and I feel like now is when I’m finally paying my dues so it is a process and it s rough. You have to have tough skin in this business because not everyone is going to like you, not everyone is going to agree with what you do or like what you do. Keep on going at it no matter what and eventually you will land where you want to be. I would like to leave everyone with a little motivation, sometimes it gets hard and you do want to give up. That’s when you write another song and get it out of your system and keep on going.
