The Tennessean chatted with Jennette McCurdy about her upcoming single, Generation Love. The debut of the video for Generation Love and her performances of other songs from her upcoming album will be at the CoolSprings Galleria during her Generation Love event for St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital.
Funds raised through the eventâ€™s $10 charity package â€” which includes a two-song CD, 8-by-10 photo and meet-and-greet with Jennette McCurdy â€” will go to the childrenâ€™s hospital
â€œI enjoy songs with universal messages about trying to make the world a better place. I donâ€™t want to push anything down anyoneâ€™s throat or be preachy or anything like that, but I just want songs that make people feel good.â€
Her other song, “Break Your Heart” , has a strong effect for revenge.
“Itâ€™s about getting back at someone who broke your heart and the way youâ€™re going to get back at them is by breaking their heart by singing it to them on the radio. I canâ€™t imagine a better kind of revenge. And thatâ€™s a fun song to sing because I pick someone out in the audience and really sing it straight to them.”
Debra McCurdy has been battling cancer for years and just recently returned for the second time. When asked about her mother’s condition, Jennette said during the interview:
Sheâ€™s still going through chemo and everything. Itâ€™s a continuous battle and itâ€™s rough on everybody, but at the same time I feel like I can speak to people when I meet them in person on some level of understanding, though of course everyoneâ€™s situation with cancer is different. I thought, â€˜Whatâ€™s the use in having so many blessings unless I try and give back in some way?â€™ â€
She further mentions about her new song, “Hate Those People”, which she says has a “totally fun different angle” of her music.
“Itâ€™s about seeing those couples that are so mushy gushy on the street. You know, they are so lovey-dovey and kissing and holding hands and are so happy, and sometimes you just hate those people. But usually the time you hate those people is when you are alone yourself and you yearn for that same thing that theyâ€™ve got going on.â€
