Hype Hair: How has your experience on the show been?
Sasha Gates: A blessing in disguise. You never know how things like this are going to unravel, how people are going to react when you let them into the most intimate parts of your life, but it has been fun! I have so many supportive fans and my fellow WAGS have become some of my closest friends.
HH: Tell us about your new music and what inspired it.
SG: I have always loved music. My father is an incredible musician, so I grew up around music. I always say, even if I couldn’t sing I still would! I don’t have one artist in particular who influences me, I am influenced by all kinds of music from reggae to pop, and I am inspired by a variety of sounds and instruments. Check out my new single, “Oh Yeah, My Hitta” on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
