FUSE TV - Q&A: Big Freedia Says DJ Snake & Diplo Are on 'Just Be Free' Follow-Up

After three full seasons of the deeply honest Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, it seemed only fitting that Freedia herself would gift her worldwide fanbase with more of the story in the form of a memoir. Out now, God Save the Queen Diva! takes a closer look at Freedia's formative years in the New Orleans bounce scene. Among many revelations, the book sheds light on the challenges of coming out to a community unfamiliar with and afraid of the gay experience, her family's narrow survival of the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the unique foundation of self-love and dedication that later led Freedia to global celebrity.

Fuse was fortunate enough to cross paths with the busy diva as she breezed through Brooklyn for her first-ever book signing, where we were given a few clues on what to expect from the next season of her Fuse TV series, her future book ideas and the star-studded follow-up to her 2014 album Just Be Free

Season 4 of your show is on the way. What can you share about it?

It's going to be even more interesting than the last season, of course. We keep stepping it up! This is actually going to be my international turn for the TV show. They'll get to see me going international and doing my thing on the international level now.
