This week on THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL HIM & HER PODCAST…
( 0:55 ): Welcome back to TSC HIM & HER Show. #568: Today we’re welcoming 90’s icon Mark McGrath to the show. Beginning his career as the lead singer of hit band Sugar Ray, Mark has co-hosted EXTRA from 2004 until 2008 and hosted cultural staples such as The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, NBC’s Radio Music Awards, MTV’s Rock N’ Jock, and so many more. Plus, he starred in the first American season of Celebrity Big Brother, coming in 3rd for the season. Today we sat down with Mark McGrath to talk about all things 90’s nostalgia, the rock and roll lifestyle, and how he made his marriage work in the world of fame & fortune and after infidelity. He also gets into how fame & work evolves as you get older, how the industry sometimes requires you to “sell your soul”, & how he personally navigated life in the spotlight. He also gets into the details of how human interaction has been slowing in the last 2 decades, how personal branding has helped him remain relevant, and how to stay grounded in the music industry.
