The 22-year-old Eye Candy actress opened up about her life on television, getting back into music and more. Check it:
On making the jump from Nickelodeon to MTV: “I think doing Eye Candy was the perfect next step for me. When you have a show on Nickelodeon, you know it has a shelf life. It was important after being on that network for so long, and people seeing me as Lola on Zoey 101 and as Tory on Victorious, that I leave a new character in their mind… I loved that it was a thriller, that it was dark, gory, and very sexy all at the same time.”
On releasing music again: “Now that I have a little bit of a break from the show, I’m definitely getting the itch to get back in the studio and start writing again. I miss performing so much. I miss being on stage and being able to share my music with people. Whether I sign to another label, I’m not sure, but I might just release stuff on my own just so my fans can hear it and I can share that with the world.”
On making it work with boyfriend Pierson Fode: “I am not perfect when it comes to being in a relationship, and it definitely has its challenges, but I think the key is communication. Just taking the time to really be invested in the other person’s life and their wants and their needs and how they need to feel loved.”
The 22-year-old Eye Candy star opened up to the glossy about the show, her career, and more. Check it:
On her image: “I don’t portray myself as one way for the media or the pubic and then I’m totally different in real life. I do try to keep my personal life private for the most part, and I’m not the girl who’s always out and about on the club circuit, drinking and doing drugs. The way I represent myself through my interviews and on my social media accounts is pretty much who I am.”
On her career: “I’ve been in the industry since I was eight years old. I think if you were going to try and sell people a certain image that wasn’t true to yourself, you could only fool them for so long, things would eventually come out, about who you really are. In today’s world with the internet, cellphone cameras and videos, you can’t get away with a fake persona for long.”
On Eye Candy: “It is much darker and that is one of the main reasons I was drawn to it. I took my time reading different scripts. I didn’t want to take just anything, for the sake of just working on something. I would’ve waited even longer if Eye Candy hadn’t made its way to me.”
