Over the last decade, Brody Jenner has become a recognizable face in pop culture—and not just because of his last name. Known most famously for his starring role on “The Hills”, Jenner has had his hand in many areas of entertainment—from appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, his new app BrodyMoji, to his status as celerity DJ. Brody comes to Ottawa on March 31st to be the official DJ of the 6th Annual Casino Royale at the Brookstreet Hotel.
Brody Jenner: When I’m on stage I want to get a sense of what music the crowd wants and I make sure everyone is having fun. Events are totally different from Vegas, festivals, & corporate events so you have to be prepared to have the right music for each event. I spend countless hours before each event making sure I’m prepared with the right selection of music to play.
Faces Magazine: As I’m sure you remember it can get pretty cold up in Canada, are you a fan of the cold weather or do you prefer the beach life?
I prefer a bit of both actually. I went to college in Colorado and spent a large portion of my life snowboarding.
What’s your favourite part about living in Malibu?
How laid back and friendly everyone is plus you can’t beat the weather and surfing all year long.
You’ve traveled to a lot of interesting places besides Ottawa (obviously) are there any trip destinations that stood out for you? Any places you’re hoping to visit or head back to?
I love Indonesia. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world and I usually go at least once a year for a surf trip with my friends.
If you had the chance would you trade your fame for a normal life where you weren’t watched so closely?
No, I don’t think I would change anything about my life. I kind of knew what I was getting myself into when I started all of this and in the best-case scenario you gain fans and they become interested in what you are up to, so I feel grateful for that.
Being a DJ you must have an interest in music. Who would we find on your playlist?
I love all types of music from Tom Petty, NIN, Daft Punk, Martin Garrix, Jay Z, Beastie Boys, Bruno Mars and Flosstradamus.
What does a typical day look like in the life of Brody Jenner?
Spending time with my fiancé, playing with my 3 dogs, or going surfing if the waves are good.
Do you have any advice for all the guys out there trying to make an impression with their ladies on Valentines Day?
Having success on V-day is all about the effort and not the amount of money you spend.
Where can we expect to find you next? Any big plans for the future?
Yeah lots of exciting things coming in 2018. I have some very cool apps in development and my best friend Adam and I are releasing original music under the name MORE BETTER so stay tuned.
