JOCKIN' MY FRESH: FEFE DOBSON COMMENTS ON THE RIHANNA COMPARISONS

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne
FeFe Dobson, the Canadian born rocker is back with a new album entitled "Joy," which she will be releasing independently. FeFe was previously signed to Def Jam from 2003 until 2006, when she amicably parted ways with the label.
FeFe recently did an interview with HoneyMag.com, and when asked what her thoughts were about people saying Rihanna bit her style, FeFe quipped, "I mean, for sure I question that, but who wouldn't. She is supposedly a fan of mine. I try to take it as a compliment. IT GETS A LITTLE MUCH WHEN SHE STARTS GETTING THE SAME TATTOOS AS ME..." That's code for: that b*tch is jockin' my fresh like a mickey...hot dammmmmn it's a new day!
I would DEFINITELY have to agree with FeFe. The similarities between her style at the time that she was signed to Def Jam (2003) and Rihanna's current style (who later signed with the label in 2005) is BEYOND a coincidence.

When FeFe first busted on to the music scene with her rocker-chick-sound-who-just-happened to-be-black, her music was refreshing to say the least because it showed consumers that "black music" did NOT just consists of R&B, Gospel, and Hip Hop...ROCK ON FEFE!!!
Interestingly enough, FeFe co-wrote and provided background vocals for the song "Start All Over," for Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus album.
FeFe currently has a new single and video out entitled "I Want You (I'm digging it). You can read the rest of FeFe's Honey interview here http://www.honeymag.com/message/story/view.castle?g=679901&m=7116431.
