Crave Online: What’s going on for you in the ring? 

Maria Kanellis: Well, I just won Diva of the Year so just won that. That was an amazing, amazing thing for me. It was all voted on by our fans so the fan wanted me to be Diva of the Year. Now I am. Outside the ring though, I have an album coming out. It comes out in April. It’s April 13 and it’s called Seven Sins. I wrote it and produced it so I’m very, very busy. 

Crave Online: Does WWE have a hand in music? Is it through them? 

Maria Kanellis: They do not have their hands on my CD. Mine is completely independent and I did it that way because I wanted it to be very me. I didn’t want it to be somebody else. So maybe down the road, but right now I wanted to start it off this way independently. 

Crave Online: How long have you been involved with music? 

Maria Kanellis: I was in music and I used to sing in high school. Now finally I’m getting the opportunity to showcase it. It’s so much fun for me. It’s a great outlet for me. 

Crave Online: You sing. Do you play any instruments? 

Maria Kanellis: I play a little bit of the drums but it’s all my vocals. 

Crave Online: How would you describe your sound? 

Maria Kanellis: I would describe it as rock music, twisted lyrics and definitely sexual appeal.
