With the VH1 Best Cruise Ever just weeks away, we caught up with a few of the performers on the ship to get the inside scoop. We asked them about everything from their choice of swimwear to their most insane fan encounter, and we'll reveal it all here in this interview series: Five Best Interview Questions Ever!
Our first featured artist is Ryan Star:
DK: This is your first time on the VH1 Best Cruise Ever. Have you performed at any other music festival quite like this?
RS: I have been performing my whole life so I have pretty unique experiences, but I've never performed on a boat!!! This is actually my first cruise ever.
DK: Do you prefer quiet walks on the beach or wild after hour parties?
RS: I believe in a good balance so I guess after a wild party I will be walking it off on the beach.
DK: What is your favorite boat drink?
RS: Are boat drinks different than regular drinks? Do I get to drink out of a coconut like on Gilligan's Island?
DK: Which special event would you most likely participate in or host? A) Karaoke, B) Flip Cup, C) Bingo, D) Trivia, E) Other
RS: Karaoke. I do a mean Freddy Mercury! Tights, stache and all.
DK: Do you have any surprises in store for the fans?
RS: Every show is such a unique experience. I feel like this one will have many unplanned memorable moments, especially since so many of my music friends from tour will be on the ship. So in this case I look forward to being surprised as well!
