The Fast Five - Jessica Mauboy

Jessica Mauboy hits the stage for one show only this month as part of her Yours Forever tour. To no-one’s surprise, it had already sold-out by the time of print, but we couldn’t let this homegrown legend slip by without gracing our pages – she’s our gal! – so we asked her to answer The Fast Five for us.

What’s the first album you ever bought? 
Mariah Carey’s MTV Unplugged.

If you could see any artist or band – living or dead – this weekend, who would it be? 
I always wanted to see Michael Jackson. His songs live today and forever. That’s one person whose dedication to music you could really feel.

Whose posters did you have stuck to the wall as a teenager? 
Hanson, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and Whitney Houston.

What song would you like played at your funeral? 
I haven’t ever thought about it, but if I had to pick one, I would probably say something by Abba or Bee Gees. These two bands were always able to hit your heart, but still make you feel like you’re on your feet and dancing, even though the lyrics were heartbreaking and about pain. 

Finish this sentence. The thing people would be surprised to know about me… 
I am terrified of balloons. My lovely friend had filled my hotel room with balloons as a surprise for my birthday and had no idea… she then felt so bad and came to remove them all from the room and put them in the hallway!
