Queen of Freestyle, Lisa Lisa front woman of The Cult Jam, will be headlining this year at Queen’s Pride. With mega hits such as “Lost In Emotion”, “All Cried Out”, “I Wonder If I Take You Home”, and finally “Head to Toe”, Lisa Lisa quickly became one of the most relevant artists in music history, and continues to be a household name today.
Get Out! Magazine was proud to speak with Lisa about what it means to her to participate in such a glorious event. Her songs are still often played in clubs around the world, as she continues to sing live to audiences everywhere. Queens Pride is honored to have her.
What does being part of Pride mean to you personally?
It is an honor for me. We are all equal. Love us. Life is love!
As a freestyle artist with a huge gay following, why is it that freestyle music is still so relevant in gay culture?
I believe freestyle music is relatable lyrically, rhythmically, emotionally…relatable.
What songs are you planning to perform for Queens Pride?
The love of my craft will make me take you back to where I started: the hits.
Where and when can people see you perform?
All dates of future performances are posted on all of my social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
What part of Pride are most looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to celebrating life with everyone with my performance.
Musically, what’s on your iPod right now, and what would surprise people about that?
Wow, I listen to Tina Marie, Patti Labelle, Stevie Wonder, anything Motown, Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Maxwell, etc.
Any last words?
My last words? I’ll never be finished!
