EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Expose's Gioia. She dishes on American Idol, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Clive Davis and Perez Hilton!!



There's a huge buzz in the air of Hollywood these days. The buzz's name is Gioia!! I found Gioia to be direct, sweet and brimming with amazing confidence. The singer's profile will be increased tremendously with her new solo release, her meeting with entertainment moguls and her possible addition to the "American Idol" judging ranks. I had the pleasure of speaking with her just a couple of hours ago......

1. Hi Gioia, it's a pleasure and an honor to speak with you today. I love your new single "Your Love is Lifting Me (Higher and Higher)." What an incredible remake. Why did you choose this song to cover?

HI GENO THE PLEASURE IS ALL MINE. I CHOSE THE SONG BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE IT WAS WRITTEN FOR ME. WRITING IS A FUNNY THING; SOMETIME I'LL WRITE SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE RHIANNA OR EVEN CELINE. SONGS THAT I'D LOVE TO BE SINGING MYSELF BUT I JUST HAVE TO BUCK UP AND DEAL WITH THE FACT THAT EVERY SONG IS NOT FOR EVERY SINGER. " YOUR LOVE IS LIFTING ME HIGHER AND HIGHER" IS FOR ME.

2. There has been a lot of noise going on about the music video you just wrapped shooting for the song. Sounds like you made a major motion picture. Can you give us a little more info on the concept?

GIRL GETS BOY, GIRL LOSES BOY, GIRL GETS.... GIRL? THAT'S ALL YOU GET GENO, MYSTERY DAALING...

3. I saw you on PerezHilton.com last week. How did this come about and what's your impression of Hollywood’s most hated celebrity blogger?

WE WERE IN VEGAS DOING A SHOW AT THE OLEANS ARENA. JIM OUR PUBLICIST MADE A CALL. WHEN PEREZ HEARD WE WERE IN TOWN HE INVITED US OUT, PRETTY SIMPLE HUH? HOW DO I FEEL ABOUT HIM? WELL... I DON'T REALLY KNOW HIM VERY WELL. HE WAS EXTREMELY GRACIOUS TO US AND VERY CLEARLY AN EXPOSE' FAN. I HONESTLY FELT A SORT OF SADNESS ABOUT HIM; SOMETHING IN HIS EYES.

4. Alright, let's talk American Idol. It seems like everyone is talking about the possibility of you joining American Idol next season and replacing Paula Abdul. What is going on with all of this?
SOUND'S LIKE YOU KNOW MORE THAN I DO. HONESTLY, I JUST CAN’T COMMENT ON THIS. IT COULD BE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR SOME OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.I'M VERY SORRY.

5. I've heard that you are meeting with Clive Davis and other entertainment moguls to make a deal with American Idol happen as well as support your comeback. Have any of these meetings happened yet? Can you reveal any latest developments?

WOW! YOU DON'T KID AROUND!! AGAIN, I REALLY CAN'T COMMENT. YES, SOME OF THESE MEETINGS HAVE TAKEN PLACE, BUT IT'S REALLY TOO SOON TO DISCUSS.

6. Why do you want to be on the show?
WHY WOULDN'T I? I'VE BEEN A SINGER SONGWRITER FOR MOST OF MY LIFE. I LOVE THIS INDUSTRY AND I'M TIRED OF LISTENING TO MEDIOCRE ARTISTS. EVERYONE DESERVES A CHANCE, IDOL HAS BEEN MONUMENTAL IN CHANGING THE 'IT'S WHO YOU KNOW' THEORY. ANY ONE CAN AUDITION ANY ONE CAN MAKE IT TO THE TOP, PROVIDED THEY CAN WALK THE WALK. NO LIPSYNCING HERE.

7. Are you and Paula friendly with one another?
WE'VE MET A COUPLE OF TIMES. I SUPPOSE IN HOLLYWOOD THAT WOULD BE A MARRIAGE. BUT NO REAL RELATIONSHIP HERE. YES I SUPPOSE IT WAS FRIENDLY.

8. What do you think of Simon Cowell? Will you two get along?
I DON'T THINK ABOUT SIMON COWELL, SHOULD I?

9. When you take a judge panel seat next season, what can we expect to hear from your criticisms and feedback on the contestants?
HA! TRICK QUESTION. YOU'RE A SNEAK!IF I WERE TO BE A JUDGE IT WOULD BE MY DUTY TO GIVE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. I'VE GOT A GIFT, I CAN BE HONEST WITHOUT BEING A TOTAL BITCH. I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT. PEOPLE RESPECT HONESTY! IF SOMEONE NEEDS WORK THEY NEED WORK, THAT'S LIFE. IT MAKES US WHO WE ARE. TRUST ME, I KNOW ABOUT WORK.

10. When is the new full-length solo CD coming out?
IT'S IN THE WORKS, NO DEFINITE DATE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE SONGS ARE WRITTEN. I'VE JUST GOT TO GET ALL THE PLAYERS IN ORDER.

11. What else is in the works for Gioia?
I'M WORKING WITH JIMMY D ROBINSON, HE'S THE GRAMMY POET. WE'LL BE RECORDING NEXT MONTH. I'VE JUST BEEN PRESENTED WITH A MOVIE PROPOSAL, IT WOULD BE THE STORY OF MY LIFE... IT'S ALL VERY EXCITING BUT A LITTLE STRANGE TO GRASP FOR ME RIGHT NOW. I'VE BEEN THROUGH QUITE A BIT, BUT AM I REALLY READY TO SPILL IT? I SUPPOSE IT'LL ALL BE SEEN SOON ENOUGH. HELL! YOU'LL PROBABLY KNOW BEFORE I DO!

Gioia, thank you so much for talking with us today!

YOU'RE VERY WELCOME, IT'S BEEN REALLY FUN! KISSES!

What a cool person Gioia is. Rock on Gioia! Thank you Geno for bring us this story.. I love this site... so much better than Perez Hilton. Perez has gotten so boring and full of himself lately.

Perez hates you Geno. Why do you even mention him?

Interesting. I have a hard time believing that Paula will go. But I give credit to Gioia and her pr machine. They has their stuff together! Her music is tight! And that body? Wow. I'm Jealous. Good job Geno.
