Carmen Electra Talks New Music, Fending Off Sharks and the Future

Carmen Electra really needs no introduction. You know her from Baywatch but probably best from that poster you had hanging over your bed in college. Recently, she’s restarted her music career. Here she tells us a little bit about her new track and punching sharks in the nose.

You’ve been in the entertainment industry for a while. How’s it feel to last this long?
Persistence is the key to longevity. If you want something bad enough you will work hard until you get it. Plus I have the best fans ever and it’s their support that helps me keep pushing!

You’ve done TV, movies, modeling and now music. Which has been your favorite?
I can’t choose one over the other. I feel music is your own expression, in movies you’re playing a role and modeling is sort of like painting a picture.

If a child was drowning, could you use your Baywatch knowledge to save them?
I did learn CPR on the show. If anyone was in danger, I would try to help, especially if it was a child. But lets face it – truth is my lifeguard skills aren’t great so I may try to save someones life and end up drowning in the process.

What if they were about to be attacked by a shark? Would you punch it in the nose? The shark, not the child.
As a huge fan of shark week, I have learned that you are supposed to hit them in the nose (the shark, not the child!), but I would probably grab a real lifeguard to do the dirty work!

You’re restarting your music career. How did that come about?
It all started with a handful of people who believed in me and were constantly saying “you love music, this is what you want, just do it!” so I decided to give it a shot in a very low-key home studio. There was no pressure, we were just having fun. It didn’t truly set in until I was booked for my first performances of “I Like It Loud,” in NYC.

What kind of music do you listen to? What’s your favorite genre?
It depends on my mood. Sometimes hiphop, dance music, rock or heavy metal. Different music motivates me in different ways – its whatever I’m feeling at the time.

You have a follow-up song to I Like it Loud called Bigger Dick. Did you do extensive research on this?
HAHAHA!! No. Maybe you have the wrong idea about the song!

What’s the message of the song? I mean, no one likes a braggart.
This has nothing to do with bragging, I am so not that kind of person. Its saying I’m not going to be passive anymore, so if someone is mistreating you, get the courage to do something about it and stand up for yourself.

So when can we expect your album to drop?
Currently in the studio recording!

Out of all the celebrity competition shows (DWTS, Splash, The Apprentice, etc) which would you most rather do and how do you think you’d fare?
I would be more interested in shooting a reality show than being on a competition show. I was entered into dance competitions from the ages of 5 to 17 so it feels more exciting to try something different!

Say you were told you had 24 hours to live, what would be the last thing you’d do and what would be the last thing you’d eat?
I would have a raging party with all my friends and family and I would eat lots of sweets and go out celebrating life! I would definitely go out with a bang!

Any future projects, besides music, coming up?
I just finished shooting 2 movies, “The Book of Fire,” and “Monica,” and I am about to head to Vienna to perform in the Life Ball.

Carmen Electra banged Dennis Rodman, she is trash since that day. While she does look good in those pics, she does have aids. As we all know, once you have sex with a negro you get hiv then aids. It’s a proven fact, google it.
