go here for much Patriceness:
|Patrice Pike, Rock Star: Supernova|
TVGuide.com: So, you didn't really seem surprised that you were the one sent home.
Patrice Pike: I was pretty surprised, but I was ecstatic about the time that I had on Rock Star. No regrets.
TVGuide.com: You were in the bottom three a few times. Weren't you worried? Or did you think your original was strong?
Patrice: I wasn't really, I wasn't worried. I think that a lot of people who were watching the show are really looking for the perfect fit for Supernova. I'm totally confident about my work and my performances. I got to see [my performances] last night and I'm ecstatic about what I was able to do on the show. I just think that the good news for Supernova is that people are out there watching and are really supporting them finding exactly what they want in their lead singer.
TVGuide.com: Now, the Supernova guys seemed to be giving you kind of a hard time. Was that hard to take?
Patrice: Well, I haven't seen the episodes, so I can't really tell you what my take was in terms of what you haven't seen. But, everything that I took in terms of their criticism was really about pushing me toward seeing if I make sense for their band. I don't know if you saw the last episode, but there were nothing but compliments and accolades about my work; I got a standing ovation and it was awesome.
TVGuide.com: Right. How wild was that to be up in front of that very enthusiastic crowd every week?
Patrice: It was awesome. And, you know, this is all I've ever done my whole life. I've never had another job. And to be able to say that and that I've been only doing my own original music the whole time has been a dream come true. It was awesome.
TVGuide.com: Why did you fight so hard to do your original song this week?
Patrice: Oh, it was because part of the audition for Supernova was to play your music. I want to be in a band where I get to write music and I know that [Supernova's] looking for someone they can write with. I wasn't afraid of the challenge of going up and playing stuff for them. I auditioned with that song; they loved it so I played it on the show. It was great.
TVGuide.com: Will you be releasing that somewhere else?
Oh my, my, my!
