Young rapper Diggy Simmons,17, recently took time out to chat with the folks at Seventeen.com about his new album and the burning question in every young girl’s mind. Click over to find out exactly what this young man looks for in a girl.
Check out the interview highlights below:
Seventeen: What song on your new album are you most excited about?
Diggy Simmons: “Four Letter Word”. All my fans are loving it. Everywhere I go, they sing it back to me – and it’s not even on the radio yet!
17: What inspires your songs?
They come straight from my life. A lot of people think I started rapping to follow in my dad’s [Rev Run of Run DMC] footsteps, but for me it wasn’t like that. It was more about getting my feelings off of my chest. My song, “Unexpected Arrival”, is about how no matter what people say or think about you, and despite any doubts people have, in the end it’s just about your arrival in life. It’s about not worrying about getting others’ approval.
17: What kind of girl catches your eye?
DS: I love confidence. I love a girl who knows what she wants and who she wants to be. I like somebody who can have fun and just live in the moment, but who also knows what she wants for her future. I like a girl who has her head on straight, but who’s also a sweetheart. I just want somebody I can kick it with, like my real best friend.
17: Does she have to get your family’s approval?
DS: No, but I would definitely bring a girl to meet my family if she were really special. That would mean a lot to me.
