Justin Marroquin: Where does your love of music come from?
Jillian Stellar: My father is actually a guitarist/singer and would play for me all the time when I was younger. He was very proud to find out he passed down that passion to me.
Justin Marroquin: What’s your favorite type of music to play?
Jillian Stellar: I really love playing any song that has passion—the kind where the listener can feel the emotion of the song. It’s so much more cathartic than just your everyday catchy dance song.
Justin Marroquin: What inspires you?
Jillian Stellar: I’m inspired by things that happen to me in my life. Whether it is an ongoing event or just a snapshot in time, if it affects me, it gets a song.
Justin Marroquin: Do you experience different emotions when you play your music?
Jillian Stellar: I do, actually. Every song I write carries a certain memory. When I perform the song, I relive the memory and with that comes the emotion.
Justin Marroquin: What do you want people to think/feel when they hear your music?
Jillian Stellar: I want people to listen to the lyrics, and apply the songs to their own lives and how they’re feeling at that moment. I write my music to let people know that they are not alone in their pain.
Justin Marroquin: You’re also a model. How did you get interested in modeling?
Jillian Stellar: I went to a casting for Bella Life Models, where I met Christine Jenna. She said yes to me before she even asked for my name, which was a great feeling! I have been working with Bella Life Models ever since, and am having an absolutely amazing experience.
Justin Marroquin: What is your favorite aspect of modeling?
Jillian Stellar: My favorite aspect of modeling is seeing the final product. I’m in awe that I could look so beautiful. I hope every girl has an opportunity to be reminded in some way.
Justin Marroquin: In addition to your modeling/music career—your Facebook fan page is literally getting thousands of likes a day. That must be very exciting for you?
Jillian Stellar: I can’t believe I have so many fans! I wish I could tell them all individually how appreciative I am. Since I can’t, I make sure to remind them with status updates, new pictures, and new songs.
What do you hope to accomplish with your modeling/music career?
Jillian Stellar: With modeling, I would really love to have at least one picture published in a major magazine. With music, I would love to play some bigger shows and maybe go on a tour.
Justin Marroquin: For the rest of 2014 and beyond, what can people expect from you?
Jillian Stellar: More pictures, more music, and big things!
