Mickie James recently spoke with Josh Stewart of Newsday.com and revealed that she is planning on releasing a full-length album later this year to follow her 2010 debut digital release, “Strangers & Angels.”
“I do want it to be a real career,” James says. “… I want to cross over into that and take my fan base with me in the music side. It’s been a slow process, a lot of work, but it’s been good work. It’s just like when I broke into wrestling, still learning, still perfecting. Just like I’m still learning things in the ring.”
When asked whether she would consider an MMA career she said, “I don’t really follow MMA. I don’t think I could. I’m an artist, a performer. There’s an art to what we do to the wrestling. I don’t want to really fight anybody.”
She also spoke on the new phone app Viddy, the video equivalent of Instagrams, allowing people to post 15-second clips and also add audio and graphic elements. “It’s cool to be able to give your fans, and people in your life, a look at a lot of things that are going on,” says James, “With Viddy you can show little things that are going on around the house, the kind of things going on when I’m not in the ring.”
