  • It's the most daunting assignment and all of media.

  • There's no way to prepare yourself.

  • Everything that gets thrown at you, the speed of it.

  • It is so fast.

  • And then the assignment is literally trying to get a usable sound bite from someone walking by you trying to get into the party.

  • How would you detail the ups and downs of that experience at the Met Gala, where all of those knobs, or cranked up to 10 years so well spoken, enjoy conversation very much.

  • You're like Texas State or something.

  • No university, Houston University of Cougars.

  • Um, ups and downs are literally the stairs that people come up on because I have Thio see Madonna walk from the very bottom of the carpet all the way up the stairs for each person that walks up.

  • It's just that level of anxiety that you're trying to like subdue so that you could just be a human in front of them.

  • I definitely change per person.

  • Like when Harry styles get after it was not the same reaction like, Hello, Mr Harry Styles.

  • My went into, like an English accent of swords.

  • I don't know.

  • What is it like interviewing Kim Kardashian when Kanye is doing that Kanye thing where he's standing next to her looking bored on the carpet, honey, enough.

  • They wouldn't thank you for acknowledging my truth.

  • That's literally what everybody was saying of in the comments on the interview.

  • But it was basically like Kanye came up and Kanye said to me like, Hey, I'm not going to answer any questions.

  • Tonight's her night tonight about her.

  • Cameras were not rolling.

  • There's no proof of any of this.

  • You'll think of lying.

  • I know, but that's exactly what he said.

  • So then I just all my attention was at her.

  • And then I threw a compliment to him at the end and made Kanye smile.

  • All hell's about to break loose.

  • Yeah, yeah, I know.

  • I'm gonna turn it like a rocket at some point.

  • This app came out.

  • Everybody was downloading it and I gave in to peer pressure and downloaded it too.

  • It was just like I'm gonna make some video sharing with my six friends.

  • It's kind of like a big group chat.

  • Did being popular like on social Media?

  • Does that translate to being popular in the classroom that could you see some sort of shift within the school walls?

  • Um, I was pretty obnoxious in real life.

  • This around my eyes, school experience.

  • And so when Devine kind of happened people just it was a pretty normal, like extension of your person in there like Okay, yeah, she just doing the same thing but online.

  • And then when it started taking off, people were asking me what I was doing or how it was doing it.

  • But treating me the same that can't be helpful.

  • I'll be right back.

  • We'll be back after these messages.

  • So for me it was exciting.

  • Thio step into double dare and host on Nickelodeon because I got to perform in front of kids.

  • Have you learned how to balance the sort of expertise of others versus your own instincts?

  • Because I'm not, is deep into it as you are, but at least from what I can kind of gather from experiencing things, you know that there's this weird sort of thing where the network, the production company in the individual right, the creator, we all have the same goal.

  • But then the network might be like, you know, Hey, we're paying for this like we have the final say production companies like we're building this.

  • We have the final say.

  • You might say, Well, hey, I've built this audience.

  • You came knocking on my door like, maybe you should listen to me more.

  • Yeah, and that's where I get very picky with the experiences that I have, right?

  • Like, I have to make sure that whatever, however, I'm aligning weather working with I truly do a lot with them and that I'm giving a blank canvas as an orders.
