How did you get so happy?
Hard work. No longer living by anyone else’s demands. I’m grown, I’m evolved, I can accept all that comes with being an individual.
What comes with being an individual?
In my case, trust, faith, hope, optimism, courage, wisdom, enthusiasm, and pizzazz.
What do you do?
I lip-synch, but I’m more of an example, an icon in my own right, a muse. I want people to look at me and feel inspired, to feel hope, to smile. I want to surge positive energy in your body, confirm that you too can be yourself.
Does it happen that way?
Oh, sure. I get some “Wow, oh my goodness, what the hell, you look fantastic, holla brotha” when I’m walking down the street, but my favorite thing I ever got was, “I am just so glad you’re alive.” I’ve had so many people say that to me, and that’s what assists me on continuing my journey. I was put on this earth to be a bodhisattva, to just glow, emanate love, respect, peace, pizzazz. It’s powerful.

It’s Gaymonn a/k/a Andre J! If you guessed correctly give yourself a free hug. I was missing my love so I decided to do pull a Teyana Taylor and google him, baby. The above Q&A is from New York Magazine’s March 2007 look book interview. You will thank me later once you look at his sessay pictures.
