Some of you may know the 4″9″ 90 lbs pint size human barbie as the former adult entertainment vixen also known by the name “Little Lupe”. But these days the Columbian born beauty, of very humble beginnings, has shed her porn star image and aims to be the next pop star. With over 15 million views on Youtube her first single, “We Are The Party”, has already landed at #9 on the YouTube Weekly Music Chart.
Lupe has worked diligently these last two years, along with her group The Ex-Girlfriends, to shed her former image and bring her new venture as a pop star to life. Not only does she sings but she writes her own music, and she dances pretty vivaciously too!
I sat down with the lovely Ms. Fuentes to discuss her budding music career with her group and just what she has in store for her fans. Along with Lupe, the group is comprised of Smash a German Native-American, Baby J of Japanese and Brazilian decent, Dee-Love who is black and French and Tee-Money a Filipino. Here’s what she had to say.
Who is Lupe Fuentes?
I’m just a regular girl. I am just a normal girl who wants to follow her dreams. That’s a big part of my life. I’m finally doing what I’m passionate about. And I’m finally doing something for myself because I wanted to do it. I’m a big dreamer. I am myself.
This young lady has been among the music scene for quite some time but hasn’t yet captured the attention of main stream media, perhaps, because she is not mainstream. Jhene Aiko is a breath of fresh air, literally. Her vocals are breath taking, serene, and yet filled with so many emotions. Her debut album, ‘Souled Out’, is set for a 2013 but we can get a better idea of what she may have in store with new single “Mirrors”.
I absolutely love her voice. What are your thoughts on “Mirrors”?
