Raven Symone Dishes Advice That Every Young Person in The Industry Needs To Know

Raven Symone knows what is what, people and if you’re a young person in the industry, you need to read her advice.

As one of the OG teen stars, she’s been through all of what you’re going through right now and if you listen to anyone, it should be her.

Speaking with EOnline, Raven gave this same advice to Raven’s Home on-screen son, Issac Ryan Brown.

“Make sure you watch your money and you have a good lawyer and that you take your vacation time,” Raven says. “Working on a television show and being the star of it at a very young age, people will ask you to promote it and go here or go there or go here or go there.”

She continues, “When you’re working like that you forget to take breaks, you forget that you can’t just work just because you’re a kid.”

Raven adds that relaxation and rejuvenation is key too.

“They always say, ‘Oh you have enough energy, you’ll sleep when you’re older.’ Or, ‘Your body will bounce back.’ But it’s really not true, we’re still human and we still have to go through things and we still need to rejuvenate no matter how young we are and even if it is playing our video games at home,” she says. “We deserve that break, just like an adult does.”

He added, “Our cast is just really incredible.”

A lot of people might not remember that just when her acting career was kicking off, Raven-Symone also released her debut single called “That’s What Little Girls Are Made Of” — and she was amazing!

The Raven’s Home actress and producer’s young co-star Sky Katz saw the video and heard the single for the very first time this week during her appearance on MTV’s Summer in the City, and had the best reaction.

“She looks pretty dope!” Sky said when seeing the video for the first time.


She added, “It’s just funny seeing here there [on the video] and then at work.”

Raven Symone Talks Her Strong Friendship with Anneliese van der Pol

Raven Symone Talks Her Strong Friendship with Anneliese van der Pol

Raven Symone and Anneliese van der Pol have one of the strongest friendships in the business and the key to it all is making an effort to keep in touch.

The two Raven’s Home stars went through just about everything side by side growing up and came out on top.

“It would have to be the camaraderie we had behind the scenes,” Raven shared with Buzzfeed. “We had such a fun time. I don’t know how many cakes I’ve had in my face and hair, all of the costumes we had, and the fact that we were a family.”

Raven adds of first connecting with Anneliese, “We are still close today, we chilled after the show ended. It was funny because, like, I’m this person: I don’t text you every day, I might not call you every day, you might hear from me maybe once a month. But that’s because I’m workin’, that’s ’cause I’m talking to my momma half the time, and she [Anneliese] understood that.”

“So we always had tabs on each other, so I moved here [to NYC] and she called me and was like, ‘You’re moving to New York?!’ I’m like, ‘Yeah!’ She’s like, ‘I’m already here!’ So we had our moment there, we went out a couple times, but we’ve always taken care of each other on our off time.”

We might say others are friendship goals, but really Raven and Anneliese invented the term.

Raven Symone Wishes She Grew Up in Today's More Body-Positive Era

Raven Symone Wishes She Grew Up in Today's More Body-Positive Era

Raven Symone has spoken out about how important it is to her that all body types are celebrated on Raven’s Home — and now she is opening up about how that was not at all the case in her (very public) childhood.

“I wish I was living now as a younger person,” the 31-year old actress said in an interview, “I probably wouldn’t have so many mental issues.”

Raven went on to detail how she was told she was “too big” to perform in concert when she was younger.

“I still did it!” she remembers to People Now. “I was on tour forever because it’s not about your size, it’s about what you have to say, if you can sing or dance, and performing. It’s not about your size.”

Fortunately, she thinks things are getting better in terms of body positivity.

“In this day and age you have all kinds, and it’s funny, it’s serious, it’s every color, it’s every head shape, it’s every hair,” she continued, “And there’s androgyny, and there’s LGBT coming in, and it feels good. We didn’t have it enough last time and I guess that’s what the past is for — to make sure the present is what it needs to be.”

We’re glad she made it through the tough times to be the body-positive role model she is today.

'Raven's Home' Isn't Trying To Be 'That's So Raven' 2.0

'Raven's Home' Isn't Trying To Be 'That's So Raven' 2.0

We can all admit that we were obsessed with That’s So Raven when it aired on Disney Channel — and even years after that.

Raven Symone gave us the catchphrases “Oh snap”, and “Ya nasty” — which we’ll admit we still use today.

But don’t go comparing the sequel series, Raven’s Home, to the original.

“We’re not trying to match the old one,” Raven explained on Good Morning America this week.

“We’re trying to present a different style and present a different show because if you keep trying to chase the old, you’re never going to keep up with it.”

Raven adds, “This is a new show all together. Yes, you have the same characters, Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels, but you have four new kids.”

“I think we’re creating a whole new show all together with some familiar characters, but it’s a different show” — and a great one at that.

Raven Symone just revealed a huge secret about Raven’s Home!

During her interview on The View, the actress and producer opened up about getting her Fine Arts degree and how she’s put it to good use on the Raven’s Home set.

“I got my AA in fine arts, finally,” Raven revealed. “I have to tell you, you’ve [pointing to Whoopi Goldberg] received multiple presents, other people from the show have received presents, but you know what’s super fun? Do you guys know what secret Mickeys are?”

She adds that she was inspired by the secret faces of Mickey Mouse that were hidden over themeparks and movies and created a “Secret Raven”.

“I have paintings that I painted inside of Raven’s home,” she says. “And you’re going to have to figure out which ones are mine because my art is in my show and I’m so happy about it.”
