Hey babygoons, check out Verve Girl’s interview with our Mama Goon where Devin recaps on her journey,

When they (The Cataracs) contacted me, I just knew them as these weird, eccentric guys from Berkeley (California) who were getting a lot of love.” “It was three and a half years in the making,” says Dev. Not quite the Cinderella story everyone thought it was”.

Mama Goon, then goes on to talk about her hit track with Far East Movement “Like A G6″

”Radio stations didn’t like ‘Like a G6? at first, they said nobody wanted to listen to that kind of music. But, we put it on YouTube and all of a sudden it had one million views, two million, ten million, twenty. Somehow everyone knew about it.”

DEV then goes on to give advice for young people who are trying to get into the music industry, Dev has two suggestions.

“I know it’s the cliche thing to say, but don’t ever stop working. There is no other option, if this is what you want to do, then that’s it. You just keep working at it. You never give up.” Dev suggests utilizing all the things available to you, to be exact, social networking sites like Twitter,Facebook,Myspace, Tumblr and whatever else gets you noticed. “The Cataracs found me off my Myspace page. It’s not easy but never, ever stop if it’s what you want.”

DEV then talks about her awesome fashion before she became a huge success and now

“When I was a kid, we pretty much only had an Old Navy in my hometown, so my Mom became a person I could look up to for style.”
Now the singer is a little bit luckier with her fashion choices as she works with a company called Hellz Bellz. ”My stylist Lani does pretty much everything. She gives me so many options to choose from and we style the clothes to match the videos. I get a lot of creative control. I meet with the directors and get an idea of what I want.” With that said, Dev says that her everyday fashion is very dependent on mood. “Sometimes I’m in the mood for flashy outfits with sunglasses but sometimes I just want to wear something sleek with heels.”

Verve Girl then go on to ask Mama G about her the stunning dress she wore in her music video ‘Dancing Shoes’ she laughs and tells me she gave it to her younger sister for her grade eight graduation. I live every girls dream… I get to play dress up every day!”

Even though Dev gets to work with Hellz Bellz and plays dress up daily, the singer doesn’t favor any brands. “If I like something, I wear it, I don’t pay attention to brands.” Perhaps she doesn’t regularly pay attention to brands, but she is customizing a few pair of Puma shoes with Sharpies for Vervegirl (That’s the surprise I was talking about)! When asked if she has any plans for the shoes, Dev mischievously says, “I have a few ideas but I’ll wait till I see the shoes.”

Check out what Dev had to say to On the Download, Dev: A pop princess gives lessons on how to be a bad bitch.

Dev says : “It’s funny, when I look back at the first recordings that I did on my Macbook and put on MySpace, one some is this thing where I’m singing really prettily over this electronic beat, and another one is this track where I’m talking a bunch of shit over this really pretty beat, and over the last couple of years I have been developing in some ways as a woman and an artist, but it’s funny how when I go back and listen to this, I’m still kind of the same, like how I grow and change, but at the end of the day, I like what I like!”

Dev, for her part, appreciates the situation she is in now, in terms of the freedom she has to make music free of gimmicks or within the confines of a genre or scene. “For me, as an artist,” she explains, “I have the ability to be vulnerable but also make a pop record.” After the success of “Booty Bounce” and “Like A G6”, she continued to churn out vulnerable pop hits, like the top 20 smash of last year’s “In The Dark”, a masterfully seductive record that flips the switch on the dominant Euro-synth mode in current pop for a Caribbean-lilting dance track that was definitely one of the most buoyant jams of 2011.

“Yeah, I spent some time figuring out what I wanted to do, to create my introduction to the world. I wanted to show the world that I like a lot of different genres and a lot of different music, but at the same time, it’s all Dev.” In this case, “all Dev” means an infectious mix of the spitting rawness of hip-hop and the jump-up-and-down energy of pure pop, with Dev’s distinctive vocal style bridging the gap as she flits between confessional seduction and in-your-face sass. “I was a kid who really liked bands, and I really love just really raw performances, artists and live performers who aren’t afraid to mess up, aren’t afraid to spit on the group! And yeah, I don’t have to stand there with a guitar or be up there with a bunch of dancers like other pop people do– and I love that shit! But I like being a little– I dunno, I’m weird.”

Being pregnant triggered a minor crisis of faith for the singer, but clearly it was an event that has found her all the stronger, especially now that Night has finally seen the light in the States. “When I was pregnant, I wasn’t looking forward to, you know, writing songs about being a mother. I thought ‘Oh my god, I’m never gonna want to be sexy, I’m never gonna want to be a brat!’ But that’s the complete opposite of what happened– I had Emilia, and I felt way more confident and sexy than before. It made me feel like the ultimate woman, in a sense. If anything, it got worse, and anything that people will say will never bother me. And I try to be, you know, just as much of a bad bitch now as I was before. Having a kid, I want to raise my daughter to be confident like that. I really thought that that was going to change, and I was going to change, but it didn’t happen like that”.

Dev spoke to Univision news recently over the phone. She spoke about many different topics such as
Jimmys role in helping her juggle motherhood and a career

“my fiancé plays Mr. Mom a lot; he has my back and supports me and does whatever he can to help, and that means a lot. In the middle of the night, he will wake up with her because I’ll have to do photo shoots or shows the next day.”

What “The Night The Sun Came Up” means

“The album is like my little fairytale story; my rags to almost-riches. I’m from a really small town [Manteca, Californica] and I was working a 9-to-5 and now I’m on a big massive tour bus, playing these shows. I wanted a title that represented that turning of a leaf – a very fairytale-esque title.”

And singing Emilia Lovely to sleep

“Sometimes I do. It’s cool, she really likes music, which is perfect.”

Devin and Lisa (Devs hot mama) were interviewed by Recordnet.com and opened up about everything thats been happpening with Devs career, Emilia Lovely and Devs journey so far.

This is some of what lisa had to say about her daughter Dev:

And she’s actually a really good business woman. I’m so proud of her. At 22, she can go into a (record company) boardroom and really take control. “I get emotional. I tear up every time I see her with the baby. I’m proud of her. Very proud”

Heres what Devin had to say about touring so far:

“Since my first live show, I’ve been envisioning this, Everything. The props, lighting, back-up singers. A little DJ. It’s all finally coming together. It’s awesome. I have full creative control to make it my little fairy tale.”

About her homecoming defies imagining, too:

“Oh, I’m excited, It’s awesome. It’s really the coolest. It excites me to be playing back in the 209.”

About her “rags-to-almost-riches” story of this “small-town girl”- the inspiration for “Getaway,” a song on “The Night the Sun Came Up,” her debut CD that was released on March 27 – has similar qualities.

“I wanted to reflect very much the fairy-tale, rags-to-almost-riches story,” Tailes said. “Turning-of-the-leaf situations. I’m happy with it.”

While attending Delta College in 2008, DEV and a friend recorded a “super-weird, super-different” version of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.” Just for fun. They uploaded it to MySpace.

The album mixes bright, bouncy dance-pop with hip-hop rhythms, pure-pop tunes (think Katy Perry, Regina Spektor), an introspective semi-ballad (“Shadows”); a sped-up baby voice (“In My Trunk”); and collaborations with Enrique Iglesias (“Naked,” her current single) and rapper Fabolous (“Kiss My Lips”).

“Getaway,” the first of its 11 songs, refers to her transition from Manteca, and a job at an Old Navy store, to Los Angeles. The slightly spiteful “ME!” explores the journey from “Dev who?” to “Dev-in-demand.”

Her label – Universal Republic – is powerful (Winehouse, Drake, Florence Welch, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, “The Hunger Games”). She’s performed and recorded hits with the Cataracs and Far East Movement.

A Rolling Stone magazine critic awarded her album 3 1/2 stars. Just like Madonna’s “MDNA.”

What DEV had to say about Emilia:

“She’s great,” Tailes said of Emelia. “It’s been a good experience so far. I’m a musician and I wanna be a mom. I’m stubborn as hell. I’ll somehow figure out how to do both of them.”

Despite some “push back” from fans because her poppier-sounding CD is on a huge corporate label – Tailes writes lyrics and the Cataracs create the beats and sonic structure – Tailes is undeterred.

She’s no flavor-of-the-musical-month, either.

“I don’t have a life outside of this,” said Tailes, who used the baby delay to “tweak a few things” on the CD. “I’ve never worked as hard. It’s beautiful that I get to do this. There are pros and cons to everything. I love it. What a fun journey.”

Though it’s “first things first,” Tailes is “open to so much”: side roads into a movie. “That would be kind of rad. The big leagues”; clothing design, cosmetics and voicing a cartoon character: “I wanna play a bird. A Grammy would be cool.”

Though she’s recorded platinum-selling songs, Tailes doesn’t wear glass slippers.

“The ‘Cinderella’ thing,” she said. “They hear you on the radio and think you’re a millionaire. Overnight. I’ve worked hard for things.”

“The Night the Sun Came Up” relates to her rise.

“These are stories I needed to tell,” Tailes said. “Things that very much made it happen. Family support. The Cataracs. I’ve been surrounded by people who keep me strong and grounded. At first, I’d call back home crying. I wasn’t making money. I didn’t like begging.
