Any young Canadian that’s ever worked in the media would be lying to you if they said they didn’t even once dream about being a MuchMusic VJ. Well after two failed attempts on the VJ Search, I’ve gotten my chance….well…sorta.
Last week, Canadian rap superstar Shad came through town after his big win over Drake at the Junos for Rap Recording of The Year and I got the chance to interview him. Well normally, interviews are pretty standard. I do my research, bring down my recorder, do the interview and then I spend hours transcribing.
But on his recent tour, Shad teamed up with Scion to offer media a pretty cool opportunity. Shad got his “people” to tape the video for us, old school MuchMusic VJ style. I didn’t tell him then, but I was dying with excitement. First, to finally get a chance to have a good chat with him because he way too nice of a guy and secondly, to not have to transcribe. You have no idea how painful that becomes.
Check out the interview, you’ll notice I hardly got any face-time, which is sorta why I know I’ll never make a good VJ. Blogger for life!
