One of the things we like to do on BSO is spotlight young ladies who aren’t just beautiful, but also who are making a mark in this new era of media.

Jennifer Brix is a perfect example of that, she relaunched her website today and if you haven’t bookmarked by now you will after reading this interview.

Today you are relaunching your site JenniferBrix.com, tell us a little about Jennifer Brix the person, the brand and site. How you envision it all working in the future?

As a person? I feel as though I’m fun, intelligent and alluring, I really want this to come across in the Jennifer Brix brand as well. Aside from branding myself, establishing an online identity and contributing to my niche, I started JenniferBrix.com due to my passion for writing, pop culture and current events. I wanted to find a voice in blogging atypical of the popular, negative gossip blogs that also cater to my demographic.

You do more things than just “blog”, you have done interviews with entertainers, covered events, on air radio and more, how do you fight the perception that you are just a “blogger”?

Well, I want my image to be strongly associated with my brand; I’m not just behind the computer. I want to be a reputable source for entertainment news, be it on-air radio (Power 98 in Charlotte, NC), my celebrity interviews, or event hosting. The term ‘blogger’ definitely limits your capabilities.

What do you see as the challenges being a female in media? What advice would you give to women who are just starting out?

I’m a realist, and realistically, if you’re a female it’s sometimes hard to be taken seriously in any industry because a double standard still remains in our society. On that note, I would tell any woman trying to establish herself to guard her reputation with her life because it’s truly all that you have at the end of the day. Once your reputation (whether personal or professional) is ruined, it’s extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get back. Be smart, think about how you want others to perceive you.

I found your site because of some of your Kardashian posts, what are your thoughts on the Kardashian clan?

I think they’re geniuses. Every move that they make is calculated and there’s always a method to their madness. Love their entrepreneurial spirit, marketing savvy and strategic publicity stunts. Love them or hate them, you know who they are & what they’re doing. There’s a reason the Kardashians made a collective $65 million in 2010.

Shows like the Basketball Wives and Love & Hip Hop have started to blend sports, entertainment and music all into one, do you think this is a positive thing that so much stuff is now out in the open or is just all entertainment?

Both negative and positive. Reality television and social networking sites such as Twitter take away the mystery of celebrity status, often exposing prominent media figures for what they really are and eliminating some of their appeal. However, I think shows like ‘Basketball Wives’ are positive for athletes (such as Eric Williams) and women like Evelyn Lozada — would we really know who they were otherwise?

Did you play any sports growing up?

I sure did! I was center and power forward on the varsity basketball team in grade school. Then I lost my athleticism in high school. Basketball is still my favorite sport though!

What accomplishment are you most proud of in regards of your career so far?

Probably my very first interview, moreso the scenario/situation than the opportunity. It was my freshman year of college and I was 18. I was invited to Fantasia Barrino’s dinner party at her home for an interview. I was there with a good friend but when it came down to the interview, I was on my own.

I was the creator of a 6-month old blog standing beside Good Morning America, Fox News and VH1 among other major media outlets. Nervous is an understatement. Luckily, everything went really well, but that moment definitely set the tone for my career pace.

Would you ever consider doing reality TV?

Ha! I’ve never considered that but I would never be opposed to it.

Finally tell us what we can expect from Jennifer Brix in the future and how people can keep up with you in your various social media spaces.

Ultimately? I want the Jennifer Brix brand to be a staple in the social media and entertainment realm. That would be awesome! Find me on Twitter @Jennifer_Brix or on Facebook (Jennifer Brix). Thanks Rob!
