You sound a lot younger.
Pamie: I'm twenty-five.
Jangela: Your level of sarcasm I associate with someone much older than you are.
Pamie: It's called finely honed comedy skills.
Jangela: I just meant
Pamie: I know. What are you working on now?
Jangela: I am working on a demo this Thursday. I've got a really weird life, I guess, in some ways. I went to school for policy analysis. Right now I'm working as a research analyst. It's great work and I probably have my dream job now in terms of what I would have wanted to do academically. In school, just a lot of discouraging things happened to me musically. I worked with a label that went under. And when I was finishing school and I was deciding whether to do the music thing or the academic thing, I thought academic was the way to go. This is the corny part, but the Popstars process -- and you won't see this on the show -- it doesn't compare with the people with the most minute shred of talent to the most talented in one space sharing the dream. Something about being a part of that, I just feel like I just turned twenty-four and I'm not getting any younger. When I turned twenty I cried, and I told my boyfriend, in the R & B pop industry, if you're not in around twenty, twenty-one, it's a harder climb into the industry. So I figure this is the last year. You go to school to get into the most lucrative position in the field that you're in, so anyone that's in the entertainment industry and says they don't want to end up in the most lucrative section of it is full of it.
