I don't want to sing boring pop songs - I want to sing songs that are meaningful to me.

Sometimes I feel edgy, sometimes I feel like I want to wear a bright, bold beautiful color.

I admire people like Kristen Wiig, who is hilarious but also does a lot of really cool films. I would love to have a career like hers.

My stepdad is a Patriots fan, so I've become a Pats fan, too.

Music is such a part of my soul.

If you love something, you have to stay really focused and can't let outside things distract you.

I'm skilled in the Twitter and Instagram sense of the social media verse.

I want to play a variety of different characters in different genres of film.

I can't hold a grudge anyway.

Everyone wants me to be perfect, but I am so far from perfect!

So many girls only care about guys and looking good all the time.

I've never been a partier.

Going to a concert is so overwhelming and the energy is amazing.

I am undeniably afraid of the dark!

I love going to second-hand stores.

I definitely think there could be stricter teen driving laws.

If you're smart and you care about life, you'll take driving seriously.

My favorite TV show is probably 'Glee.' I'm a Gleek, like everyone else!

I've always taken direction pretty well.

I drink lots of water, and I've been trying to do daily wheatgrass shots, but they're awful, and I have to plug my nose.

Someone's career that I admire would have to be Justin Timberlake's because he started off on Disney and he made this huge film career and huge solo music career. I really respect him as an artist.

I think talent makes me really attracted to someone more than anything.

My first concert was 'Nsync.

My mom is not trying to live vicariously through me.

I'm half Puerto Rican and every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken in my house - so that's like a very Latin staple. It's just so comforting. I look forward to every single Friday because I just can't wait for my rice and beans and chicken.

I listen to all kinds of music, honestly.

If you don't feel like you're ready to get your license - just because people are putting pressure on you, don't feel like you have to rush into something. Take your time, really feel confident and be ready. It doesn't matter what other people say, do what's best for you and makes you feel safe.

What really matters is what's on the inside.

I'd say that if you had a strained relationship with your mom, for whatever reason, the best thing to do is be open with each other, talk it over, try and work it out somehow as opposed to just putting a wall up and pushing them away.

I've written a few songs that have to do with being in a relationship, the bad and the good.

In a lot of ways, I wasn't a normal teenager.

My day-to-day look is inspired by comfort, color and just how I'm feeling that day.

You have to be really careful with what you put out on social media and who you're talking to online.

I love to read books by women I look up to who are smart, funny, and interesting, like Tina Fey's 'Bossypants' and Mindy Kaling's 'Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?'

I would describe my personal style as eclectic.

At a young age, I had to give up a lot of things, like being able to hang out with my friends.

I want to stretch myself as an actor.

I love my fans, and I try to keep in touch with them as much as I can.

I like people who can and like to make fun of themselves!

I'm a jeans fanatic. It's ridiculous how many jeans I have.

Just because something is on trend, it might not work for you.

Focus on something that you have a passion for and hone that skill; it will make you feel confident about your ability.

My number one thing was that if I ever did get successful enough to make it, I wanted to be able to give back to my family.

Educate yourself: Read up on current events and books.

It's nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you.

I'm all about the supplements. I take fish oil every single day, as well as vitamin D, magnesium, B complex, vitamin C.

I'm not looking to shock anyone.

I was almost 8 years old when I was watching a kid on a TV commercial, and I told my mom that I wanted to do the same thing. She said that I would need to get an agent and that she would research it.

I like being active and riding a bike around my neighborhood and exercising when I can.
