Cece Frey is the X Factor finalist who has been in the bottom two three out of the past four weeks of the competition! The problem with Cece is that you never know what you're going to get with her.
Cece told me she loves fashion, but maybe she needs to pick a sound and look and stick with it. Britney Spears has always been extremely harsh with Cece for some reason. When I spoke to Demi Lovato's group member at CBS the other week, she revealed what kind of comments from the judges have helped her the most and what she plans to do with the $5 million prize money if she wins.
POTP: Your look changes every week. Do you want to keep viewers guessing?
Cece: I definitely want to keep the viewers guessing. I'm very into fashion. I'm very into high fashion. Everyone wants to call it gimmicky, call it whatever you want. The fact that I'm into high fashion is me.
POTP: Britney Spears does not hold back when she critiques you. Why do you think she's so harsh with you?
Cece: I don't think Britney's the only one that's harsh to me. I think LA Reid is harsh with me, Simon's harsh to me and Demi sticks up for me because she's my mentor and she knows the type of person I am and how badly I want this, so I always appreciate that. Britney Spears is the Queen of Pop, she just is, and here I am trying to be a pop star. So I think the queen is trying to give me the kind of criticism that will make me strong enough to handle this industry. I appreciate it.
POTP: What do you think of some of the harsh critiques from the judges?
Cece: I'm taking so much with a grain of salt. Sometimes I really take it to heart. When the judges give me constructive criticism, I take it that to heart and I do my best to take that to make my performance better for next week. But if I'm just told, 'Oh, I just didn't get it!' Okay, well there's nothing I can really do with that. I'm just going to let that be what it is and carry on with what I think I need to do to be better.
POTP: What would you like to do with the $5 million prize money?
Cece: I know this sounds unbelievable, but I don't even think about the prize money. As far as I'm concerned, I would love to tell Simon, 'Keep your money. Get me a career instead.'
POTP: You can have both.
Cece: If I can have both, I would definitely just use it to keep investing in my own career and livelihood as an artist. I'd probably buy myself a motorcycle. That's something I've always really wanted [laughs]!
