When Dallas born journalista Angelique Garr was only 12 years old, she quickly recognized her love of writing.. While the other kids were drawing and playing, she was writing short stories and articles for the yearbook. “I was the one that everybody came to when they had a paper due,” she laughs. The 28 year old has since worked in the tv, music and fashion industries and is a natural at freezing the moment with words. Angelique has interviewed many of Hollywood’s MVP’s. “I love meeting intriguing people,” she says. “…Especially if it’s someone I really admire. I’ll keep my cool, but on the inside, I’m about to explode.” Recent film-subject Frank Lucas and model Cindy Crawford are only two of her most memorable conversations. Others include Russell Simmons, Janelle Monae, 2 Chainz, RZA, Trey Songz, TGT, Vivica A. Fox, Fantasia, Brian McKnight, Trina, Jadakiss, Joe Budden, Mobb Deep, Juelz Santana, Avant, Joi, Plies, Talib Kweli, Ray J, Foxy Brown, Keyshia Cole, Pete Rock, Chrisette Michele, Bun B, Snoop Dogg, Hosea Chanchez, Rockmond Dunbar, Dick Gregory and many others.
After taking a brief hiatus from writing around 1997, Angelique rediscovered her love while interning at Universal Music Group and Interscope Records in Dallas. As a result, she is a self-proclaimed “hip-hop head,” who also loves fashion and art. Her absolute favorite assignments are fashion spreads and hobbies include singing, watching as many movies humanly possible, and teaching positive social media skills to young teens. She has also served as Social Media Manager and Blog Editor for two secondary schools in the Birdville ISD school systerm in Ft. Worth, TX. Publications that have showcased her work include Rhyme & Reason Magazine, TheSource.com, FEDS Magazine, Basic Magazine, Yo! Raps.com, The Dallas Morning News, Dallas Examiner, Dallas Post Tribune, and the beat goes on. Her latest venture, Journalicious!, was a full entertainment news and gossip site that was launched because of the success of this blog, which received over 10,000 page views at its height. . “I’d like to thank everyone that visited and followed http://www.JOURNALICIOUS.us, receiving their daily dose of ‘Celeb News and other Goodies’ over the past 7 years,” says Angelique.
In 2007, Journalicious! Media was launched after briefly providing her PR talents to DP Next Generation (Tha Dogg Pound.) The internet publicity and marketing service has since lended media authority to numerous local and international artists (such as BoyFace, Suga T, Alexander Star, Grammy Award Winning Producer Jah Born, RC & The Gritz, etc.) and has media relationships with numerous labels including Universal Music, E1 Music, Warner Bros. Records and others.
