Every free day, every weekend, I am in a recording session. I'm very lucky to have such supportive people around me.
I've always wanted a 'Full House' reunion, so when you see stuff like this comes back, it's super exciting.
Every Christmas Eve, the elves will come and give us a new pair of pajamas.
My first inspiration for acting came from the first episode of 'Hannah Montana.' That's when I knew I wanted to be a singer and an actress.
My favorite makeup look was for my 'Eyes Wide Open' video done by Torsten Witte. It was so dramatic and definitely captured the magic of the video.
It always feels good to put something you're proud of out in the world.
I like to emphasize my eyes because if I do it well enough, then they look very blue.
When I was growing up, we went to Musikfest every year, and I have vivid memories of the corn on the cob. I'm going for the concert, but I'm really going for the corn.
Honestly I'm not a huge TV person. The only show that I've seen every episode of is 'Pretty Little Liars.' It's my favorite show. I wish I could get into other shows, but I just don't have time!
Singing is about telling a story. When you are onstage, you get to be your own self… When acting, you're someone else.
I go through my comments sometimes, and I'll just take snapshots of the terrible ones and send them to my friends. I know it's horrible, but they actually make me laugh. They make my day.
I have always looked up to Adele and Christina Aguilera as singers ever since I was very young, and now my favorite male singer is Hozier.
I feel like the more I work on different songs and the more I work on my voice constantly… I always feel better after I post a cover. Even if it's doing the little 15 second covers, I'm working on my craft, and it's really good for me, and I feel good after I do it.
I've never had to fend for a child's life, which sounds very terrifying.
I'm very lucky; I have a lot of knowledge. My favorite band is The Beatles, so a lot of inspiration for my music comes from them, too.
We all have stories for a reason, and if we keep them to ourselves, I don't feel they would help anybody.
Everybody has their own story – it's who you are. If I wasn't five-foot, I wouldn't be who I am!
Truly, with a sitcom and the rhythms of comedy… music is so helpful in that area of life.
I didn't feel self conscious 'cause my sisters and I all had thick brows, and by the time I got to the age that I could be self conscious about them, they were in style!
I think the song itself, 'Smoke and Fire,' is just a metaphor for the feelings that you feel in a relationship.
When I was 6, I opened my mouth and didn't stop singing. I had a voice and wanted to use it.
There are a lot of things that people go through, and maybe they don't know how to get through it, and maybe you do, and if you have some sort of knowledge or power, share with the world.
The first songs I learned was 'Crazy' by Patsy Cline and 'At Last' by Etta James. I had been growing up with the Beatles, Pink Floyd, great bands.
I get inspiration from literally everything and anything. I take inspiration from people, relationships, stories, and I take inspiration from movies I see, books I read and songs I hear.
My size is a huge part of me. You just have to appreciate those kinds of things. So I wasn't born with long legs – who cares. You just have to embrace it. Being body positive is really important to your overall happiness.
My favorite thing before going to school was watching 'Full House,' 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch,' and 'Boy Meets World.'
Everybody takes at least 20, so even if you see a good selfie, it probably wasn't the first one. So my tip is to just not take it too seriously and have fun.
I can't speak for boys because I'm not one! But I just imagine they think differently.
That's just a symbol of how you should deal with a breakup. You can cry for a little bit, eat some ice cream, but I think, after that, it's like, get up, listen to some powerful music and do something that makes you happy, be productive.
It's hard to see someone with a 'perfect' body and be like, 'Why can't I be like her?' But that person was born to be who she is, and you're born to be who you are.
I loved all of the 'Zenon' movies. Those were my jam mostly because of the fashion. I loved something about the space buns and the weird neon colors. I couldn't just wear that in real life because people would look weirdly at me, but maybe at a party or something.
I approach everyday personal beauty very naturally; I try to make it look like I'm not wearing makeup.
