21 Questions With . . . Jessica Mauboy
Jessica Mauboy has a very sexy voice. Not her singing voice — that's more on the serene side — but her everyday speaking voice. It's low and husky and, for some reason, so surprising. Interviewing her, she laughs often and is full of funny little expressions — i.e., "Oh, my life!" when asked to choose between Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum.
Here, Jess is chatting to us off the back of yet another successful single release, and a new lease on life to match. Her new song "This Ain't Love" is catchy — like, hooks-you-with-one-listen catchy — and sends the totally on-trend message of conquering self-doubt. "I go through certain phases where most days I'm just overloaded and consistently in doubt, like, 'Am I doing this right?'" she told us. "And other days I'm really knowing, like, 'Yeah, that's exactly right'."
We asked Jess 21 questions, touching on ~important~ stuff like, "Burgers or pizza for life?" and then covering actually important things, like the work the singer does with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Scroll for more!
