My mom and I always had a great bond. It was always a natural friendship bond since early on. My mom was 18 when she had me.

Some suggestions for you :

I want Violet to be proud of every little thing that is her - her hair, her body. We're all different, and from early on, I've always said she has a very confident personality, and I want her to maintain that.

There are a lot of options when it comes between music and acting. For me, because I'm so passionate about my music career, you have to be extremely passionate when you have opportunities like films and real money actually coming to you compared to with music.

I also have two dogs, a Chihuahua and a Yorkshire terrier, so if they like him, that's a good sign.

I'm all about 'molde de arroz con picadillo'.

My mom was a cheerleader and had me as a teenager. I remember her giving me some pom-poms and teaching me how to do some splits when I was 3 or 4.

I would just love to do something where I'd have to train and work really hard and do one of those types of action movies, which a lot of women are doing now.

I've always loved Jennifer Lopez, and I think, as an entertainer, she is a great example of a strong woman that is also very levelheaded and cool and produces her own content.

In the world's eyes, what they know of me is from the blogs. What they know is from the media.

I felt like a dork growing up so this is shocking.

I guess NBC must have noticed that one of my main staples is social media. So, when they approached me for 'The Voice,' I thought, 'Why not be the first one to do it?'

I've got Christian Louboutin' s 6 1/4-inch Equestria boots. I wear them so much, I turned the red bottoms brown!

My 'Chili Palmer' was my mother. Her name is Carmen Milian, and she's my manager. Before getting into music, we actually educated ourselves, and I went to college for music as a business and learned the business side, and she read a lot of books.

With my first single, 'AM to PM,' I was just this cute 18-year-old. But 'cute' didn't get me older roles, and 'cute' wasn't selling records. I wanted people to see that I'd grown up, so I did 'Dip It Low.'

I know that my dad not being in my life made a huge impact on me.
