  4. Firstly, we have no idea who Chocolatestine is, nor why she deserves OUR attention. You should have introduced her to your readership thoroughly, giving us reason to be interested in anything she has to say. The interview segment should be short and sweet and avoid all the obvious stuff. Where’d she get her name? What’s her biggest asset? Who was her mentor? How does she see her music evolving? Etc. As it stands, too much of a cliche.
