Victoria Justice Reveals Her Secret to Long-Distance Relationship with Pierson Fode

Victoria Justice Reveals Her Secret to Long-Distance Relationship with Pierson Fode

Victoria Justice brightens up our day on the February 2015 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands January 6!

The 21-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about her new MTV show Eye Candy, her boyfriend Pierson Fode, meditation, and more. Check it:

On Eye Candy: “It’s a very sexy thriller-drama. Victorious was musical singing, happy times, and colorful, and this show is the polar opposite, which is 100 percent why I was drawn to it. I do have a little bit of a dark side. I’m not this, like, queen of darkness, but it’s exciting to be in a darker world—dark characters don’t scare me.”

On taking control: “During my teenage years, I definitely learned to become more assertive. I feel like young people can sometimes be scared or intimidated by people in power or someone older than they are, but you can’t be afraid to speak up for yourself and speak your mind. Being able to take charge of situations and push through those difficult times is what helps you grow.”

On her relationship with Pierson: “It all comes down to chemistry—it’s either there or it’s not. And relationships are not always easy. I’m currently in a relationship, and he’s in L.A., so it’s important to find ways to stay connected—even just playing Words With Friends and Skyping when you can. When you’re young, not every relationship is going to work out. You’re going to go through breakups, and you’re probably going to have your heart broken. It’s important to remember that just because someone breaks up with you, it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. All relationships are a learning curve.”

On rising above the pressures in her life: “I believe in reading self-help and inspirational books—on my nightstand are ‘The Alchemist,’ ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff,’ and Deepak Chopra’s ‘The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.’ I’m also a very spiritual person, and I strongly believe in the power of meditation and the fact that you can change your own mind. Sometimes if you get to a certain level of meditation and you tap into your subconscious, you can attract amazing things into your life. It’s all about self-love, being your own best friend, and enjoying your own company. Once you have that, the world is your oyster.”
