What artists have influenced what you do as a musician?
I think Kelly Clarkson. Also Paramore. They have a great sound. The Jonas Brothers co-wrote and produced six of the songs and they had a lot of input, so they influenced the album.
You recently turned 16. What was the party like?
I didn’t really throw a party. I went to Applebee’s with my band.
Yeah, I love Applebee’s. On the day of my birthday, I had a concert so 18,000-20,000 were singing happy birthday to me. It was awesome.
When you’re being tabbed as the next Miley Cyrus or the next Jonas Brothers, how does that affect you?
I’m not allowed to read some of the gossip sites because they really take a toll on you. So I don’t see a lot of that. I like to focus on what I’m doing. I’m just having a good time right now.
What’s it like so far starring in your own series, “Welcome to Holliwood”?
It’s very crazy. I was nervous in the beginning. It’s hard to carry a comedy show. If you’re not funny, the show is not going to be funny. I’ve never had a lot of confidence in comedy, but I’ve really let loose and totally had fun with it…
