Interview: Tyrese Gibson Talks Black Nativity, Fast 7, And Pursuing His Dreams

Tyrese has always proven to be an unstoppable force in the entertainment industry. Nevertheless, he is still striving for more.

You may already know that he is an international movie star, a two-time bestselling author, and a Grammy nominated singer and songwriter. But did you also know that he is now a record company CEO, a film producer, and an owner of a travel agency?

Yes: Tyrese is THAT man!

I was fortunate enough to take part in a press interview with the self-proclaimed “Vision Implementer” himself yesterday. During the talk, he discussed everything from his humble beginnings and rise to superstardom, to his plans for the future.Tyrese Gibson Interview 

He also shared some inside scoop on the details of his newest project. I’ll share more on that with you next week. 😉

But for now, let’s get into the mind of Mr. Tyrese Gibson:

Tyrese Gibson Interview 

The secret to the success of  Tyrese’s 20-year career in entertainment is his willpower and determination. He has never been one to back down from anything. He firmly believes in executing on his visions, dreams, and ideas. On yesterday, he launched his very own Voltron Travel agency, where he and his staff of 25 agents are on a mission to help people get to their loved ones for the Holidays. He is also holding the ranks of Voltron Records, where he is building up an impressive portfolio of recording artists.Tyrese Gibson Interview

He is doing all of this in addition to touring, recording, and filming movies…..plus being an amazing Dad.iSo what is the driving force behind his many hats? And how does he achieve all of the success that he does?Tyrese Gibson Interview

“I think of the world as an empty canvas waiting on new thoughts to think. It’s up to us to create those thoughts,” he said during the interview.

~To explain this quote, Tyrese used the example of James Cameron and his creation of the blockbuster film ‘Avatar,’ and how James has always said that the world of Avatar was in his mind. He says that it’s a great representation of the possibilities of how far the imagination can go.Tyrese Gibson Interview

He sees no problem in seizing every opportunity, and he is not afraid of failure.

“Who are we to decide that just because we have access and resources to [things] that we’re not going to do it” he said. “I might very well hit a wall, but so what??! What makes me successful is that it started out as a vision, a dream, or an idea; and I executed and got it done.”

He feels it’s his responsibility to use his influence to make a difference in the lives of others. He proves it  by not only giving a look into his life as a singer and actor, businessman and Father on his Instagram and Twitter accounts, but he also shares video messages of his personal reflections on Mobli. What he calls “The Voiceover Diaries,” has gained over 11 million views and received thousands of likes and positive comments.

In his words, he is a man that wants to “influence the influenced, and inspire the inspired.”

Even with everything Tyrese has accomplished, he still has goals he is working to achieve. One is playing Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a biopic. For the past 5 years, in between studio recording, touring, media appearances, and filming, he is extensively studying Dr. King’s life and doing research into Dr. King’s background by spending time with his family—even going so far as to stand at over 15 podiums that Dr. King preached from during his lifetime.Tyrese Gibson Interview 

So far, his efforts have produced a short film, “A Dreamer’s Dream,” which he said was his way of “putting his goal out into the atmosphere to get it into existence.” Channeling the spirit of Dr. King, the film also includes the voice talents of songtress Jill Scott and actor Blair Underwood.

As for roles in the near future, Tyrese opened up about what movie goers can expect from his part in the film Black Nativity, set to open in theaters on November 27.Tyrese Gibson Interview

When [y’all] see my role in this movie…sometimes folks don’t take you seriously in Hollywood when you only do franchise movies…you have to do these type of roles that are dark, and that has layers” he said. “There’s a different heartbeat that comes with these types of roles, and it’s been an answered prayer for me. It’s going to shock people. There are many places that I can go as an actor, and this film [Black Nativity] afforded me that opportunity.”

He said the film will be more aggressive, but will still have elements that fans have come to love. There’s lots of nervous energy on the set, but everything’s going great and fans can expect to see another phenomenal film.

 .

Lastly, here are some awesome quotes Tyrese shared during the conversation:

 .

“When you have self-love, you don’t allow anybody’s opinions or perceptions of you to become your own opinions and perceptions of you.”

 .

“It’s not always about what you go through to get to where you wanna go – it’s about the outcome.”

Tyrese is one of the most inspiring celebrities I know. His confidence, fearlessness, and perseverance always makes me feel like I can do anything. It was a great pleasure to hear his thoughts and ideas, and I cannot wait to see what else he has in store.
