FUN FACTS ON MONIQUE LECOMPTE
What celebrity do people say you look like?
The most common one that I get is Mariah Carey, which I take as a total compliment! I guess I sort of see that, but it definitely gets said more in certain photographs and when I wear my hair certain ways.
What's on your playlist?
Martina McBride's Timeless, Jefferson Airplane's The best of..., System of a Down's Mesmerize, Miles Davis's The Best of..., Sade's Lover's Rock, and a CD that I compiled of about 20 different country songs that I love including Happiest Girl in the Whole USA, Ode to Billy Joel, D-I-V-O-R-C-E, Satin Sheets, The Tennessee Waltz and It Ain't Easy Beein' Easy, just to name a few.
The craziest or most daring thing I have ever done...
Getting the Japanese symbol for friendship tattooed on me with my two best friends Destine' and Lisa would have to take the prize for that one! It was totally spur of the moment and crazy (for me), but I don't regret it one bit!
What three things couldn't you live without?
No. 1: God!!!! Through Him all things are possible! No. 2: My family and friends. I love people and human interaction too much to be without it. That's probably a large reason why I make friends everywhere I go! No. 3: Music. Some say that money makes the world go 'round. For me music makes the world go 'round. Even if I'm listening instead of singing or playing I have to have some sort of musical stimulation throughout most of the day or I'd probably go insane!
What is the worst job you've ever had?
Clothing retail! Needless to say, I hate folding and hanging up clothes now!
What is your favorite video game or board game?
The last gaming system I owned was Super Nintendo! My favorite game on it was Mario Bros. All Stars. Board Game: anything Trivial Pursuit, I especially like the SNL, movies, TV and music editions.
What is your astrological sign?
Virgo, born the year of the Dog.
Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have a Flame Point Siamese cat named Sky, he thinks he's a dog!
Hobbies outside of music?
Spending time with family and friends. NASCAR (Nextel Cup Series ... Go Rusty! #2 ... please don't retire!) and American muscle car shows. Anything outdoors like going to the beach, hiking, going up to the mountains to play in the snow, etc... I really wanna try snowboarding sometime this year!
