Mauboy Takes On Fans
The lovely Jessica Mauboy has taken time out of her ridiculously busy schedule to battle a super-fan on the subject of er, her, in the launch episode of MTV’s ’Fan Vs Band’.
The daft-as-a-doona new show, hosted by the inimitable Cheesy Mac, sees the world’s hottest stars go up against their number one followers in a bid to see who knows more about ‘em - and Jess’s ep is set to get you giggling and gasping in equal measure.
We’re just glad she got the chance to drop by ‘cos the singer’s been non-stop the past couple of months.
Not content with landing the support slot on uber-rapper Flo Rida’s Aussie concerts in September, bagging a part in the critically acclaimed Aboriginal film, ‘Bran Nue Dae’, which airs at the Melbourne Film Festival in July, the singer is also set to jet off to the UK this month, after inking a deal with the disco-tastic Ministry Of Sound label.
At least the Darwin darl has a new special someone in her life to help her deal with the craziness of fame.
While back in her home state for the recent Barunga Festival, the Northern Territory tunestress said of her as-yet-anonymous beau: "He is a good friend and a great boyfriend. I think as an artist, you need someone like that. He is giving me a lot of ideas; he is someone I can bounce off.”
And we all need someone we can bounce off, eh kids?
In other Jess news, the soul-singer is set to support Flo Rida on his Aussie tour this September, and recently signed a deal with Ministry of Sound according to the Sunday Herald Sun. She's set to travel oversees shortly to promote the album. Looks like the rest of the world is soon to find out what we already know!
Check out Jess’s side-clutching ’Fan Vs Band’ capers this Thursday, June 25 on MTV at 9pm.
