Cece Frey is one of the most talked about contestants on The X Factor this season. She has been in the bottom two for the past 2 weeks making it virtually impossible for viewers to forget her. But it's also Cece's style that makes her a standout.
Britney Spears said she thinks Cece is having an identity crisis and is trying to look like Ke$ha! The confident performer loves to place leopard print on the left side of her face. I'll never forget this chick, partially for her look, and partially because she sounds great when she sings on Thursdays to secure her spot on the show!
Yesterday I spoke to Cece about the leopard print (how could I not), how wrong I think her song choices are, and what kind of songs she'll sing in the future so that she doesn't end up in the bottom 2 another week.
POTP: When I watch you, when you sing the save songs on Thursdays, you blow me away. When you sing on Wednesdays, you sing completely different songs that don't showcase your abilities and your talents and your confidence and your range. What's going to go down this week. Give me some good news!
Cece: Okay gurl. Real talk right now. I'm starting to kind of get that common denominator. There's a reason that my safety songs are keeping me in this competition, and maybe if I sing something more like a safety song, I wouldn't need to be saved! So I think this week you guys can expect to see something completely different than what you see on the Wednesday shows. We're getting back to basics.
POTP: I'm scared because you said people will see something that they're not used to seeing and I kind of feel like you've been venturing far from your original performances.
Cece: When I say that you're not used to seeing it, I mean you haven't seen it in a while. I think I'm getting back to the basics, back to me. I think everybody's gonna get a side of me that everyone seems to responds really well to me on Thursday nights.
POTP: So the leopard print, are we gonna be seeing more of that in the competition?
Cece: The leopard print is kind of coming in and out. There are some times that I need it, some times that I don't. I like to leave it at home for some performances. I feel like I have an alter-ego on stage sometimes but sometimes I really want people to see the real me.
POTP: What if there are people watching that don't like leopard print and are like 'I'm not voting for the girl with the leopard print!' I'm just being out there.
Cece: There's always gonna be something that people don't like. People didn't like my brown hair but now they don't like my blonde hair. People don't like my clothes, people don't like my songs, but on the opposite end of the spectrum, there are people that love my new look, that love the leopard print and want to see more. I try to cater to the positive and myself, that's how I strive to live my life.
