#Quote
1I grew up being the girl who would always tune in to watch famous people talk about their careers, how they handled scandals and mega fame. I'm trying to pick up tips.
2Luckily, I have some amazing friends.
3I don't really use YouTube that much. I am a very Internet-oriented person, but I'm more of a Twitter freak - I'm always on Twitter. Or chatting with friends.
4I would love to be like Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez. They were catapulted into stardom when they were so young - like I was - and they still haven't gone down the wrong path and I hope neither or them will. I find that really inspiring.
5I have a huge crush on Josh Hutcherson and all the guys in One Direction!
6I like guys with a nice smile. I know it's cliché, but it's so true! I like a guy with a nice smile and nice eyes.
7I want to show people there's more to me than they think.
8I was one of those little girls who practiced signing autographs since I was 5 years old.
9I don't think I'm the worst singer, but I don't think I'm the best singer.
10I am worth something and I will be big.
11Dancing - that's really what I do at parties. I dance and I hang out with friends. That's my partying.
12'Friday' is about hanging out with friends, having fun. I felt like it was my personality in that song.
13To me I'm just a regular person going to the mall with friends, and now I'm in Forever 21 and I see this random group of girls staring at me and taking pictures. But now I usually have my dad, who is a really tall and intimidating person with me, so he's kind of my bodyguard.
14At times, it feels like I'm being cyber bullied.
