Carlene – 5mins 2 Shine Feature GATA PANTERA NEGRRA – April



5mins 2 Shine

The 2nd feature of today is:




1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

Great question. I’m an alternative Hip Hop artist, with forays into acting, alternative plus-size modelling, and writing. I also make cyberlox and synthlox wigs and hairpieces. I think I’m pretty good at what I do…to wear all these hats I better be good!

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today

God/dess willing, I’ll be a well-known name on the indie circuit, selling loads of CD’s and seeing my video everywhere. You won’t be able to move three inches without seeing something somewhere about ThaGataNegrra!

3)What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The easy answer would be when I gave birth–but I’ve done that twice, LOL…so I’ll share this: I used to be a dance instructor and at the same time, I attended dance school for hours on end everyday. I would teach in the afternoons and go to school in the evenings, except for Saturday. I loved that time; I got to do something I loved all the time and it never felt like work…well, except when it was time for ballet. I hated ballet because my body just wasn’t suited to it, LOL. I was a hip-hop/jazz dancer!

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

I would ensure that everyone everywhere was afforded the same freedom that we are allowed here in the States. Too many people suffer needlessly for traditions and barbaric practises they would not have to endure if they could just make a choice.



5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

I love what I’ve read so far. The blog is entertaining and informative and I’m glad it’s out there. Read it–you’ll love it, too!

Gata Pantera Negrra’s throwback of the day is: ‘Escapade’ – Janet Jackson
