Check out more pics and quotes from Cassie after the jump…
Who do you most want to collaborate with?
It’s pretty unattainable but I would love to work with Prince.
What prompted you to shave the side of your head?
It was time for a change and I never do anything crazy to my hair.
What did your Mom say?
I was worried about what she would think. But then she said, OMG…now I get to see your pretty face.
Tell us about the album…
It’s a cool blend of pop, hip-hop and ska. It’s urban Gwen Stefani meets Aaliyah. I hate referencing people but if you had to compare, that’s it.
Do you come from a musical family?
My Mom would wake us up by blasting music in the house. My Dad plays the trumpet, my brother plays the drums and my mom the piano. I played the piano too. I’m not as good as I used to be, but I can still read music.
