Hey M Girls!
Daniela Brooker has been wowing the UK audience with her powerful vocals and catchy songs for months, and now it's time to introduce this sensational 17-year-old to you M readers! According to Daniela, her musical style is like "Gwen Stefani because it has a pop-rock feel mixed with some hip-hop, too." We got the chance to sit down and chat with Daniela about music, embarrassing moments, her guilty pleasures and more!
M: Hi Daniela, thanks so much for hangin' with us today! As an artist, what inspires you to write songs?
Daniela:"Listening to other artists inspires me. I think it's important to listen to old music and have a mixture of classic and modern because today you can get music that loses the meaning of good song writing but obviously you have to stay current and put entertaining songs out and you have to find a medium."
M: Did you ever have an embarrassing moment at school?
D: "Yes! Once the boy I had a crush was sitting at the bottom of the entrance of the school. It was our last day so everyone did something crazy, and I was on rollerblades! Well, I ended up falling down the whole flight of stairs and landed on my face right in front of him. He's much older than me so it was even more embarrassing. He just laughed and I ran away and have never talked to him since."
M: Do you have any guilty pleasures?
D: "The Kardashians! I love them. Whenever I'm in NYC I have to go to the DASH store! I have a t-shirt that says DASH and I wear it around London and everyone's like, 'where's your shirt from?!' and I'm like 'oh, just DASH NYC.'"
