[WebJefe] cya Robyn_B, thx for coming by
[chjr1] bye robyn
[WebJefe] Stefani, do you think Ileah Christidana inherited your voice?
[Tex] Stefani you are with Sony discos currently How are they treating you and how much do they involve themselves in you public persona
[Stefani]
WJ: she defnitely inherited my voice, or maybe just my lungs, LOL

[WebJefe] lol
[Stefani]
Tex: Sony really does not get involved in my personal life, they just help me out a lot with my career

[Blinkie] I listened to tejano music for Selena only but then I heard you sing. You and Selena were my idols but then she died and I felt like my heart had been ripped out for a long time and I never thought I could idolize anyone the way I did her but I want you to know that.....
[Blinkie] I are still my favorite singer besides Selena...
[Blinkie] I=you
[Blinkie] And I look up to you the same as I did her...
[Blinkie] And I believe that you can make it just as big...
[Blinkie] I think you definetly have the potential...
[Stefani]
Blinkie: thank you very much, that really means a lot to me, hugs and kisses to you :)

[WebJefe] that's really nice Blinkie
[Blinkie] I just wish that this houston radio station would give you air play so others can see what I see
[ChikkoBBL] back
[Blinkie] :)
[Tejanita] Stefani, does it bother you when ads are run with your name being misspelled?
[Stefani]
Blinkie: with people like you supporting me my career can't go wrong

[Tex] Stefani I apologize for no being clearer in my previous question what I ment was how involved is Sony in promoting Stefani and do you hope they would do more
[Blinkie] :)
[Stefani]
Tejanita: yes, it's very hard especially with the mixing up of Stefani and Stephanie Lynn cause people get confused

[MartaSan] and there's a new one named Stef now hehe
[Blinkie] I know! Whenever I mention Stefani, people think of Stephanie Lynn, it's frustrating
[WebJefe] That's why I usually say America's Sweetheart of Tejano Music, everyone knows who that is.
[Stefani]
Tex: Sony has a lot of artists and I'm sure it's hard to give all of them as attention as they would like but they've been dong a great job for us

[RayRay] Come on everybody say..SAP, SAP,...SAPOOOOOOOO! LOL
[Tex] Stefani all of the people logged on today and most of the people that read this log later on are fans of yours how can we help you the most
[Stefani]
MartaSan: yeah, here we go with another Stef :)

[Blinkie] So what's your favorite store to shop at?
RayRay is jamming out to La Sombra!
[WebJefe] dont say it!, I'll be there! ...... j/k...
[WebJefe] =:^)
[Tex] lol
WebJefe is jamming to Stefani!
[Stefani]
Tex: probably requesting our music at your local radio stations because if the music is doing good in those areas we'll be able to go to those areas more often if our songs our doing well
[Stefani]
Blinkie: Forever21, cause I can get tons of clothes for very little money :)

[Chikko] stefani was it u that sings a song that says si sale con uno to tres quatro or somthing like that?
[Tex] Stefani Your current single, if I am not mistaken, is Baila Con Migo which has a robust Spanish beat to it what was the inspiration for that song
[Stefani]
WJ: awesome! :)

[CHjr] la Paranda
RayRay steals Webjefe's Stefani CD!
[Tejanita] Stefani, the picture from Las Cruces on Holloween, did you show to your daughter, and did she recognize you?
[Blinkie] yes, that's parranda something
[Blinkie] my fav song
[Blinkie] lol, I can't remember the name!
[Stefani]
Tex: we wanted it to song real Flamenco/Spanish sounding, something different that Tejanos are not used to hearing

[CHjr] my fav is Baila Conmigo
[Blinkie] did you write Baila Conmigo?
[Stefani]
Tejanita: yeah, she did, she kept on kissing the pic :)
[Stefani]
song=sound

Tex is shaking it to Baila con Migo (_/_)(_\_)
[Stefani]
Blinkie: yes, I co-wrote it with Gabriel Zavala

[Blinkie] does it take a long time to write a song?
[RayRay] Stefani, is their any new material that you really wanna push or bring back into the Tejano main Stream.
[Tex] Stefani how would you characterize your next release?
RayRay hands Stefani a Lollipop!
[Blinkie] Is "Te amo solo a ti" an old song? Like did someone else sing it first?
[MartaSan] Selena sung it first hehe
[Stefani]
Blinke: it didn't take us long to write, it's just came to us, we wrote it real quick

[RayRay] lol
[Tex] Stefani many Tejano artists have family helping run thier career do you have any family working with you???
[Stefani]
RayRay: not really, we're just trying to keep progressing and expand our music
[Stefani]
RayRay: Mmmm :)
[Stefani]
Blinkie: I don't know where I got that song

[Blinkie] lol
[Stefani]
Tex: yes :)
[Stefani]
Tex: my mom, dad, my sister and now we got my brother learning the songs too

[Blinkie] The first song I heard u sing was Soy Feliz. Do you still sing that at your concerts?
[RayRay] Sooooooooooy Feliiiiz......
[Tex] Stefani recently you had a contest with Tejano Country with the prize being a day with you, which I sorely missed on winning, is it really hard for you to stay sexy and slender with such a small frame as yours at 5' tall
[Blinkie] But I totally fell in luv with Cellos. That was such a cool song! That made me run out to get the tape.
[Stefani]
Blinkie: yes, people ask for it all the time
[Stefani]
Tex: I recently started working out hard again and I *try* to watch what i eat...when we're on the road it's really hard cause we're always eating fast food
[Stefani]
Bllinkie: we still do Celos too cause everybody asks for those songs too

[Tejanita] stick to the salads and fries with no salt at the fast foods.
[Chikko] stefani u ever gunna make a concert here in robstown?
[Blinkie] Is there any web site or just plain ANYWHERE where I can get lyrics to your "Te Voy A Enamorar" album? I don't know spanish too well
[MartaSan] I've been trying to get some but I don't speak enough Spanish hehe
[Tex] Stefani your current persona has evolved to be more main stream and modern are you always dressed accordingly or do you wear sweats and t-shirts at home?
[Tex] I am a spanish major at ASU
[Stefani]
Chikko: sure we'll be down in Robstown soon

[Chikko] make it a free concert thats all i can afford
[Chikko] hehe
[Stefani]
Blinkie: MartaSan has all the lyrics to my songs in her Website, hehe

[RayRay] LOL
[MartaSan] I don't have the ones from the first album though hehe
[MartaSan] I can only understand like half of each song hehe
RayRay gives Chikko a quarter!

[Blinkie] awww
[Tex] Stefani I know of a few artists with Sony that have problems getting thier albums to the open market. Have you experienced the same thing? If so what can we do to help combat it
[Tejanita] how are you going to handle it when she goes to school, been there done that.

[JD] Stefani...so how do you feel about being nominated for the sexiest female vocalist by Starwave Magazine? You're in a great bunch.
[Stefani]
Tex: a lot of people asking about information because the people that handled it before didn't take care of it like it should've been taken care of, so now we're doing it and it's a lot of work but hopefully it will be a good thing in the long run

[WebJefe] j/k...
[Tex] I got PIcs
[Tex] wanna see hehe
[RayRay] Stefani, do you have a sports car?
[Stefani]
Tex: yeah, I guess it's different cause you get a lot of people that don't normally listen to Tejano music, but it's really neat to see their reaction and how much they like it...

[PRECIOUSJ] Stefani....do you have a Viper?
[Tex] Stefani The last time you were here in the Concho Valley you didn't have a strong turnout cause the Promoter didn't do much promoting how do you handle situations like that
[Stefani]
RayRay: I wish :), no I have Nissan Maxima
[Stefani]

[Tex] SanAngelo
[PRECIOUSJ] San Antonio
[WebJefe] Dallas
[Chikko] Robstown
[MartaSan] Pittsburgh, we got 9 tornados in one day LOL
[Eddie] hello!
[Caliente] Tex: You sure you don't work for CNN? :-)
[Chikko] hola eddie
[RayRay] hello
[Eddie] hello STEF!!!!
[RayRay] lol
[Tex] lol
[Chikko] uh that aint stef thats stefani
[JD] Buena noches...everyone! I'm off like a prom dress....take care...and keep tejano!!!!
[PRECIOUSJ] Stefani...whats your opion of tejano music being considered in a decline?
[MartaSan] LOL
[Chikko] cyas jd
[Eddie] hello PJ
[Eddie] hello webster!
[PRECIOUSJ] hey eddie
[Tex] later jd
[RayRay] Que Onda Eddie?
[CHjr] bye jd
[Eddie] que pasa jules?
[Stefani]
hello Eddie..

[PRECIOUSJ] nothin much Eddie
Eddie gives stefina a dozen of white roses
[Stefani]
Chikko: you know what's up

[Chikko] huh?
[MartaSan] stefina? LOL
[MartaSan] ROTFLMAO
[Chikko] huh?
[RayRay] must come down?
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: it is on the decline cause most Tejano singers are playing more Regional Mexican and Norteno than Tejano and I think that's a bad thing

[RayRay] That's right!!!!!!!!!
[RayRay] Good Answer.
[PRECIOUSJ] more tejano singers or is that labels are pushing the norteno sound more
[PRECIOUSJ] ?
[RayRay] that's also right!!!!!!!!!!
[Eddie] hey stefani, i noticed you were a guest on Tejano Countdown over the weekend...did u enjoy being a speical guest???
[RayRay] Good Answer too!
[Stefani]
Precious: because we're trying to make Tejano more mainstream and not copy another type of music

[RayRay] Tejano needs to go back to it's Chicano Flavor!
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: that's prbably true too because that's what selling

[Stefani]
RayRay: yeah, definitely

[PRECIOUSJ] I agree......I dont like the fact that these Norteno one hit wonders are messin things up....so to speak
[MartaSan] why's Norteño selling? It ain't as good as Tejano hehe
[Stefani]
Eddie: to me it's always fun being on tv programs

[MartaSan] I don't like it at all in fact hehe
[Tex] I am an engineer for a Radio Station in San Angelo and on the weekends I do a Tejano show but lately I have noticed a trend away from Tejano music to Norteno and Mexicano Regional and our only defense is that the people start calling and requesting more Tejano music
[RayRay] yea
[MartaSan] I'll call your station hehe
[Stefani]
Stefani: it's kind of hard for the Tejano bands to hit when we have so many Norteno and Regional Mexican bands taking over

[MartaSan] I gotta go to bed or I'll fall asleep tomorrow taking tests LOL
[PRECIOUSJ] Another reason I believe is that the labels seem to saturating the market with signing anyone.....do you agree Stefani?
[Stefani]
Tex: definitely people need to request more Tejano music

[Tex] It really is bothersome due to the fact that most Tejano singers bring in more money to the radio stations by way of concerts than Norteno music
[PRECIOUSJ] And making it hard for the already established bands
[RayRay] Basically you can not describe TEJANO as one Sound like R&B and Blues!
[WebJefe] cya MartaSan
[CHjr] bye MartaSan
[MartaSan] cyalls tomorrow
[Tex] laters Marta
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: they do saturate the market with people that can't sing, they just look good :)

[Caliente] Bye MartaSan
[Stefani]
bye MartaSan, keep in touch with me and take cares

[RayRay] later MartaSan!!!!
[MartaSan] my new e-mail address is marta@icubed.com if you didn't see it on my homepage yet
[RayRay] What tha.............
[PRECIOUSJ] in defense of your label....what do they seem to be doing about it?
[MartaSan] well I got a Geometry test 1st period so cyall hehe
[RayRay] Your in Jungle Baaaaaaaby!
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: I think that Sony has a lot of established artists and they're concentrating on promoting them

[RayRay] the
[Caliente] BRB. My pizza's here. Woo hoo.
[RayRay] unlike Capitol.
[PRECIOUSJ] cool
[PRECIOUSJ] I agree with that capital remark
[RayRay] Gary Hobbs went to Sony.
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: that' s too bad

[Stefani]
RayRay: yeah, he did sign with Sony

[PRECIOUSJ] Its funny how they say tejano music is in a decline yet...the labels report a very substanuall earning for the time being
[Tex] Stefani many Tejano artists after being successful tend to release music that is formulatic what do you do to combat this
[PRECIOUSJ] go figure
[Stefani]
well it's getting late and I have to get up and go to the gym in the morning

[RayRay] He said he at to promote his own music 'cause Capitol was giving him the shaft.
[Stefani]
PreciousJ: yeah, it's probably those sell out artists that are playing the other kind of music

[Tex] If Tejano Music is on the decline why is a local English Country Radio station in SanAngelo promoting Tejano Music Concerts such as Emilio this past weekend and more this summer
[RayRay] Yea I gotta work tomorrow! Another day...another pay!
[PRECIOUSJ] what other kind of music?
[Stefani]
Tex: I let Gabriel Zavala take care of it, he's always listening to what's new and other kinds of music and tring to incorporate into ours
