In an interview with FOX Audio Central after she was voted off American Idol, Majesty Rose talked about what the show has done for her as an artist, and her dreams for the future. Making music isn’t the only thing Majesty would like to pursue in the entertainment world. She’d also love to act and be a model!

Her feelings after her Idol elimination…

“There are a lot of mixed feelings. Like I’m happy that I did this and I’m happy
that I learned a lot from this experience, but obviously it really is a bittersweet
thing. Because you’re a part of this journey and you never know when it’s going to
end.”

What has her time on Idol has done for her as an artist?

“Well, I’ve grown as an artist because I wasn’t…like I didn’t even know that I was
an artist before I came. I knew what type of music I like, but it’s just I didn’t know
who [or] where I fit in that. Now, now I knew who I was. Like now I know who I
am on the inside, and I think I really, really grew as far as perseverance and really
just knowing where I stand in things and sticking to it. That’s where I’ve grown a
lot.”

The best part of her Idol experience…

“Well I made a lot of great friends. The contestants, like we’re going to be friends
forever. And I have a lot of fans and people who really believe in me. They
believe in me more than I believe in myself sometimes. So I’m really happy about
that.”

me and my journey of life.”

Her plans for the future…

“Well I definitely want to be on TV a lot. Oh my gosh, I would love to be a

representative for natural hair if I could have my own show just for kids ‘cause I
really like kids a lot because I mean I’m a pre-school teacher.”
