An Interview With Dance/Club Music Queen and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star, ERIKA JAYNE!
Posted On 24 May 2016
Erika Jayne is a bona fide queen of the dance/club music world. She has had eight #1 Billboard dance singles, graced of the cover of Billboard Magazine twice, toured the globe, and even joined the ranks of Rihanna and the Pussycat Dolls for the most #1’s on a debut release.
The provocative dance vixen became a breakout fan favorite on the latest season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where she gave cameras a rare look inside her world of private jets, sports cars, and outrageous designer fashion.
Jayne’s poised and no-nonsense TV attitude has shown audiences just how many F#@Ks she gives about Housewives drama and any opinions about her super racy persona as an artist. And to express just how many F#@Ks she actually gives, her brand new single, “How Many F–ks,” will tell you all about it.
Learn more about Erika in the following All Access interview:
Thanks so much for your time! How’s 2016 been treating you so far?
EJ: So far 2016 has turned out to be an amazing year and I have a feeling it’s only going to get better.
Growing up, did you always want to be a singer? Was that always something that you thought about doing one day?
EJ: I started putting on shows for my family at age 3 and never really stopped.
Let’s talk about your newest track, “How Many Fucks.” When you first heard it, how did you know it was right for you? What do you love about it?
EJ: “How Many Fucks” was the perfect sassy commentary. Everyone can relate to the song because we have all been to that place where we just don’t give a fuck.

What was it like shooting the video for “How Many Fucks”? How creatively involved were you with the making of it? I love the dollar dress that you were in the first scene!
EJ: I am totally involved in all of my songs, videos, and shows from conception to end. If I am the mother of Erika Jayne then Mikey Minden is most assuredly the father.
How do you think you have grown as an artist since your first single, “Roller Coaster”? What has stayed the same for you?
EJ: The songs are tastier, the shows are bigger, and the whole world is my stage. My dedication to my craft and my passion for creating has not only stayed the same but have in fact grown.
Do you hope to release a full-length album soon?
EJ: I am currently in the studio making some incredible songs and I look forward to sharing them all with you.
What’s it been like balancing all the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tapings with your music career? Has it been a fun platform for you? What do you think the show has ultimately done for your career?
EJ: RHOBH has brought Erika Jayne out of the clubs and into people’s living rooms. I have had a great time balancing being on a reality tv show and creating and performing as Erika Jayne. It can be chaotic but I like it that way.
Who are some of your favorite artists? What musicians inspire you and your music?
EJ: I grew up admiring Prince, Michael Jackson, and Madonna.

At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope listeners take away from your songs?
EJ: Erika Jayne has always been Fantasy, Love, Escape, Glitz, Glamour, and Fun.
