I had a chance to spend some
quality time with talented American Idol performer Jax, who is about
to embark on a 37 city tour American Idol Live Tour and chat about her
music, rock ‘n roll influences and her future.
But I am going to make you
wait until next week for the full interview because I am headed out
on an important family vacation in about an hour. As a small peace offering
to hold you over, we did a quick question and answer for a segment we
call RARA’s Six Pack: Six fun, generally entertaining questions
delivered in rapid fire sequence. True fans and members of her loyal
Jax Pack will already know a bunch of this stuff, but still a fun read.

Cretin: What’s your
favorite place to see a concert in the New York/New Jersey area?
Jax: It’s got to be Madison Square Garden. Got to be.
Cretin: And New Jersey?
Jax: Starland Ballroom (a great venue in Sayreville)
Cretin: How long have you
had the @Jax Twitter handle?
Jax: (Laughing) Oh my gosh, not so long. I just got it right before
American Idol started, I tracked down this man named Xavier from India
at like 4AM, when it was noon his time. I begged him for two years and
finally he gave it to me after I told him I was on the show. He was
a big fan.
Cretin: I was thinking it would have been impossible for you to be the
first person using it, especially with it being the nickname to our
neighbors in Jacksonville.
Jax: That’s true and a lot of people named Jackson use it as a
name. It was crazy, and I sent that guy and his kids a Christmas present.
Cretin: If you were a huge
megastar, what ridiculous food request would appear on your rider?
Jax: I’d have a lot of water, sushi and definitely a lot of Taco
Cretin: Do you have a song
that’s a guilty pleasure?
Jax: Yes, for sure. “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from
Funny Girl by Barbara Streisand. (With an infectious laugh) That’s
a song I jam out to in the car; windows down, full blast. That’s
my pump up song to get myself confident before a show.
Cretin: Do you have a favorite
Jax: That has to be “Dream On,” it’s a classic. My
favorite Steven Tyler song is the new single, “Love Is Your Name,”
it’s country and it’s freaking awesome.
Cretin: Last question, what
color is that damn dress, my wife and I still can’t agree?
Jax: (laughs) I like that. That damn dress is blue and black. I never
saw white and gold. I ordered that from London.
Cretin: My wife sees white and gold.
Jax: (laughing) Why? Not when I wore it, right? There’s no way
she saw white and gold when I wore it, that was so blue and black.
Cretin: We need to rewatch the video
Jax: She’ll see the blue and black and then when she looks back
at the picture it will be blue and black. It will be ruined forever.
