For most people, August marks the time when summer begins to gradually wind down. The days begin to get shorter and the nights become longer. Usually, this means that the season for having fun is coming to an end. But we're here to promise you that this year will be different. Meet Felicia Wang - you may remember seeing her at some of the biggest import car shows in the last few years, but what you don't know is that these days Felicia also goes by the name of "DJ feLNLove". As one of the newest members of the premier group, "DJ4LIFE", Felicia now develops her DJ'ing talent at some of the hottest night clubs around the Bay Area. So why is this good news for you? Because after you spend some time reading her in-depth interview and drooling over the sixty exclusive-to-TunerPlayground photos of her, you'll definitely be motivated enough to drag your ass off the couch, away from your Netflix account, and over to the next kick-ass party that she'll be spinning at this Fall. We guarantee it.
TP: So we have to ask, how did you get into modeling? Were you discovered?
FW: I started out by helping my cousin with the import show team that he was involved with. I decided to model for them at their first car show.
TP: Do you consider yourself beautiful? What do you think is your greatest asset? What makes you unique?
FW: I think beauty comes from the inside. People tell me that I have a fun, outgoing personality, and a big heart...I also know that I have a lot of confidence...and to me that's beauty! ?
TP: We'd have to agree with you there. So what was the first major event that you modeled at? What made it most memorable to you?
FW: I went to my first import car show when I was 19. I entered a modeling contest for Import Tuner Magazine while I was there, and instantly made it to their Top 3 selected models of the month!
TP: Have you ever used your looks to take advantage of someone? Be honest.
FW: Haha. I don't ever like to take advantage of anyone, but I must say it's good to be me sometimes...I get VIP treatment at most places I go. Not to mention, my cable/internet bill went from $95/mo. to $15/mo. because I offered the cable guy a glass of wine! *wink*
TP: Wow. That sounds like the plot of a DVD we rented recently. Hahaha. Just kidding. So what are some of your hobbies? Any hidden talents you'd like to share with the world?
FW: My two favorite hobbies are music and exercising. I also like to dance, and what a lot of people don't know is that I can actually sing quite well too! ^_^
TP: Awesome. We'll have to take you with us the next time we go to karaoke. So, tell us how you got into DJ'ing. What is DJ4LIFE?
FW: Well, I needed a change in pace...with my love for music and a timely coincidence, I started through a good friend, DJ Tall Sasha, who is the founder of the DJ4LIFE Academy. With his amazing skills, he taught me how to spin with the passion to become the next successful Female House DJ in the U.S. As for DJ4LIFE, it's an Academy that teaches you everything you would want to learn about DJ'ing. They are based in San Francisco, but also have instructors all around the world in places such as: Hong Kong, Miami, Seattle, and Las Vegas. They are the first organization that provides opportunities for their students to spin at clubs nationally and internationally.
TP: Wow that's awesome. So what does your DJ name mean? How did you come up with it?
FW: My first name is Felicia, so a lot of my friends they call me Fel. To feel the music is all I ever need to fill my heart with emotion and love. Hence the name, "DJ feLNLove".
TP: Very cool. So what is your astrological sign? Do you believe in horoscopes?
FW: I'm a Taurus, and I CAN be stubborn as a bull sometimes, so yes, I believe in horoscopes! Haha.
TP: Haha. What does a typical day look like for you? Where do you like to go for some time alone?
FW: I start my day with a cup of coffee and homemade breakfast (I love to cook and I love breakfast!). I also go to the gym almost everyday. Other daily activities include practicing (to become a better DJ), checking out new music, hanging out by the pool, shopping, getting groceries, networking, etc. When I need time alone, I like to just drive around with music blasting in my car. I also like to hit up different outdoor restaurants or wine bars and just enjoy a few glasses of white wine by myself! ^_^
TP: Nice. So where's one of your favorite places to eat at?
FW: Pluto's. I go there a few times a week...salad topped with fresh grilled meat, healthy and oh so yummy! Hehe.
TP: Since we are an automotive interest website and most of our readers are motor-heads, we have to ask, can you drive a stick? Have you ever thought about getting into racing?
FW: No I can't drive a stick...my hands are already pretty busy when I'm driving, so automatics just make everything easier. Racing? Haha...my life is already a race! ^_^
TP: Does size matter for you? You know we're talking about car engines of course.
FW: Oohhhhh. Size ALWAYS matters! Haha. ^_^
TP: Good answer! So if we looked through your cell phone, what kinds of juicy things would we find on there?
FW: Hmm. You'll have to use your imagination on that one. Lot's of good stuff!
TP: Oh boy. Haha. So what item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
FW: Bikinis. Gold accessories. And heels, heels, HEELS.
TP: What has surprised you the most about modeling? What has your most memorable modeling moment been so far? Most embarrassing?
FW: I've had the pleasure of meeting a lot of really cool fans out there. Earlier on in my modeling career, I was at Hot Import Nights selling my prints and calendars. Right before the show ended, this young guy came up to me and asked, "how much would you charge if I were to buy everything that's left on the table?" I joked around and said "three hundred." He left and a few minutes later, came back with $300 to buy EVERYTHING I had. That really surprised me and made my night!
TP: Wow. That's a dedicated fan right there. So what do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?
FW: Looks would catch my attention, but to keep me interested the guy has to have talents or skills, humor, goals in life, and a big heart! ^_^
TP: How do you feel about pick-up lines? What was the best line that was used on you? Did it work?
FW: You know, so far no one has used a good enough pick-up line on me that I can actually remember. I think someone needs to come up with a really good one. Let's go guys. Time to step up and impress me! ^_^
TP: Haha. We'll get to work on that one. So what is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on a date? How did the rest of the night go?
FW: I wouldn't call it weird, but there's definitely a very memorable one... I went on a first date with this guy. We were at a lounge/restaurant having dinner. When it struck midnight, the staff there started to sing Happy Birthday to him. Turns out he invited me out on a first date to celebrate his birthday! I was definitely a bit shocked. The rest of the night? That would be my secret! Hehe...
TP: Damn. We need birthdays like that. Haha. So what gets you in the mood? What are some of your turn-ons?
FW: I'm all about the atmosphere, and the music of course!
TP: On a scale of 1 to 10, how wild are you in the bedroom?
FW: Hmm. It definitely depends on how much alcohol I've had. Hahaha.
TP: An alcohol to wildness ratio eh? Haha. While we're on this topic, what do you wear to bed?
FW: Lingerie...sometimes nothing. ^_^
TP: Sleepover at your place next time? Deal! Haha. Favorite position in the bedroom? How do you like to get it on?
FW: Haha. Sure thing. And I think you guys know...I like to be the boss! ^_^
TP: Goodness. So what is something no one else knows about you that you are willing to let us in on first? And your answer above doesn't count. It has to be something else!
FW: I'm actually really really shy around guys I like. Hehe.
TP: Aww. Were you popular in high school? If so, why do you think that was?
FW: I was a bad kid, so Mom sent me to Taiwan for high school. Everyone wanted to be my friend because they thought it was cool that I came from the United States. Little did they know that...I AM cool! Hahaha. Just kidding!
TP: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
FW: I would want the power to control time. Sometimes I feel like there's just not enough hours in the day to do what I want to do. There are also times when I'm suffering and I just wish it would all be over quickly.
TP: I'm sure everyone can certainly relate to that. So do you use Twitter? Facebook? Myspace? What do you think about social networking sites and how they have affected models these days?
FW: I have Twitter, Facebook and Myspace, but currently I'm only actively using Facebook, since that's where most of my friends and fans are. I think these social networking sites have had a huge effect on artists and models these days. They help keep us connected with each other, and help people stay up to date on what everyone else is up to. They're also useful tools for marketing.
TP: Agreed. So what are five things you never leave the house without?
FW: Phone. Keys. Wallet. Gum. And my business cards.
TP: Do you like to travel? Where have you been that you absolutely loved? Where would you like to go someday?
FW: Oh, I love traveling! My dream is to travel around the world. Every place I've been to has opened my eyes and my mind in different ways. Italy, Japan, and Africa are the next 3 places I'd like to visit!
TP: Where can your fans find you online?
FW: Add me! www.facebook.com/feLNLove
TP: Where can your fans expect to find you with TunerPlayground next? What venues will you be DJ'ing at this Fall?
FW: I'll be posting the flyers for my upcoming parties on Facebook - so be sure to keep an eye out. As for with you guys, perhaps I'll be DJ'ing at the next big TunerPlayground event. Stay tuned! ^_^
TP: Sounds good! Well I think it's time that we wrap up. Any last words? Shout outs? Feel free to plug yourself and your friends as much as possible ...ready? Go!
FW: Thank you to Tom, Keith, and everyone at TunerPlayground for giving me the opportunity to express myself and for having me as the Feature for this month! I also want to give a big shout out to my DJ crew "DJ4LIFE" for having me as a part of the family, and for helping me to experience the world of DJ'ing. Last but not least, my family, my friends, and all my fans who've supported me throughout this entire journey! You guys ROCK!!!!! XOXO
