Celebrities: Azalea Black
I interviewed Azalea Black the founder of Black Management. When I sat down to talk with Azalea, I really forgot that she was so young. At only 21 years old Azalea, knows what she wants and just how to go after it. Read the interview below and get to know Azalea better.
In New Mexico the entertainment industry is very small, so after 3 years of working as a choreographer I decided to take my career to the next level and move to Los Angeles when I was only 16 years old.
That same year my father died and that’s when I realized that I needed to pursue my goals in life no matter what happened, because I had an over all greater purpose here. The hardest part about that decision is not having my family out here especially my mother and sister because we were so close, but I know great things come with great sacrifice.
You were once a dancer/choreographer, do you ever miss it and do you like working with girls that were once in your position?
How hard was it for you to start your company Black Management?
What made you want to manage people instead of being managed yourself?
What is your favorite part of your job?
Traveling would have to be one of my favorite parts of the job because you interact with new people, cultures and the food is usually amazing!
Who have your worked with so far, that you just knew was going to make it big?
Well I’ve worked with so many people and everybody’s made it in their own way but two of my favorites would have to be Tammy Fey and Raz B from B2K.
Who would you like to work with and why?
This may sound a little funny but if I had to pick someone I would say Tina Turner because she is a legend and a perfect example of a strong woman. My mother use to play her records for me, they were incredible and still are.
Is there any advice that you could give to someone wanting to make it big?
If you really want something just work hard and never give up because who knows what could happen the sky’s are the limit.
How does it feel when you work with someone like Tammy Fey, that you just see her succeeding?
It feels great in a sense I’m succeeding to because she’s my artist and we’ve both grown so much that we’ve become proud of each other.
What advice do you usually give the artist's you work with?
Just to never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted!
Basically, if you want something bad enough, with a lot of hard work and dedication you can make it happen. Keep pushing ahead no matter what detours come your way and you just never know.
