Curtisha, the one you like, is a big sweetheart and when she showed up that morning she was like, "I didn't know I had to get all dressed up for today, I just brought my dancing clothes!" She literally danced the whole time for that second part of the auditions, so it was kind of mixed up.
Pamie: The U-Haul.
Jangela: They found out about the U-Haul thing by one of the cameramen. They ordered pizza for all the girls.
Pamie: Just pizza, that's all.
Jangela: So, we're all sitting down waiting and everything and one of the cameramen comes over and he just started talking to us and asked if the audition was holding me up from everything. And I guess he told Dave and that first day I didn't have the U-Haul with me or anything. All of the shots are from the next day. Dave filming it and making me open it up. And that day my keys got lost in the truck. I was nervous and I couldn't remember the words. They taped me writing it on my hands and all that other stuff. I wish they had shown more of the dancing parts with me.
My boyfriend's a really shy guy and I thought it was cute they added that in there. We filmed him falling asleep in the U-Haul truck. By the time it was over, my boyfriend was ready to kill my friend, so just to get away he went to the U-Haul and fell asleep.
They actually made me say all that. And really, if I was bummed that they showed me being cut -- the chances of me making it into the five girls was pretty small, so being featured in this show is just as steep. There are a lot of the girls in L.A. that no one's seen yet and once they're in L.A. they've got three episodes basically to get their screen time. So if it took a U-Haul to get my feature on the show, I'd do it again.
Pamie: What's your background in dance and singing that made you want to be a Popstar?
Jangela: The second I started talking I started singing to the point of annoyance. My parents have tapes of me singing "It's A Small World," as if it was the only way I could breathe, if I was singing that song. I've just always, always been singing. Your family and friends can tell you that you've got a nice voice, but none of that ever really motivated me. I kind of grew up with Madonna, and I think a lot of it, part of it was just watching her, as an artist. She's probably one of the few pop artists that has a head on her shoulders. She's smart, articulate, and I don't know, I guess in being musical and loving music and loving dance and also being an intelligent being, I figured if she can do it, why can't I? I write my own songs and I've been writing poetry my whole life, so if I weren't a musical artist my second goal would be to be a writer in some way.
