I went to a Canadian college for performing arts and then I auditioned for Canadian Idol. That honestly was my golden ticket.
Canada was my whole world and my whole reality, and now I meet people who've never been there, and it's like, 'You've never been to my whole world?'
For nighttime or for an event, I'm all about the nice heel. Something that's still walkable but definitely very elegant.
No, I haven't asked for a guy's number, but I've always wanted to.
Reading serves as a good escape when you're in the middle of doing crazy things.
I've never been an all-black girl. I like pinks and blues and greens. If you come over to my closet, you'll be able to find a rainbow of things to wear.
I really like guys who have confidence, but not the cocky over-the-top confidence.
I have a couple of girlfriends who've told me some horror stories but I've never had a really terrible kiss before.
I'm still enjoying discovering more designers and getting to play dress-up in a bigger way than I ever have before.
The way I write is generally about love. I have a great fascination about the subject.
I definitely have a little attraction to bad guys, but they have to be sweethearts underneath. After all, I like to be treated well.
I feel very giddy with the idea of making my imagination take form and being able to put on a show where people leave feeling like they've experienced something.
I like to mix and match vintage with designer. It's how I create my own style.
Candy apple red is my favorite color. It's a powerful color to wear. It's always been that way – I've always been really attracted to that color.
I like when the song starts to take over and you feel like you have to dance more than write.
I think in general, lines are a bad idea. Especially if they sound like lines. Everyone's immediate reaction is to just kind of cringe a little bit.
Pretty much everyday, there's a moment where I'm having to pinch myself and think, 'When did this happen to my life?'
I can't tell you how lucky I feel to be able to collaborate with some of my dream producers.
One of my favorite things to make is homemade sushi. I know how to make the rolls and it's really fun to do.
I'm a little bit of a hippie at heart, so I always wear things that are comfortable and flowing.
I think when it comes to pop I'm past the point of curiosity. I admit to a full-on obsession with it, and I think it's getting worse, actually.
I'm not going to freeze under the pressure. I'm hoping I can stand up to it.
You can't always understand if someone's into you or not, so you should never really pursue something too far without gauging that first.
