Hollywood, Florida, U.S.
I love making movies and hope to write my own screenplay someday and do some producing and be behind-the-scenes as well.
At a young age, I had to give up a lot of things, like being able to hang out with my friends.
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.
Someone once told me that something they really liked about me was that they thought that I was really down to earth and not high-maintenance. I think that was cool. It’s important to stay grounded.
New York, in itself, has this frenzied, chaotic feeling to it. It’s such a big city, and it’s always moving, and there are so many people.
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 don’t want to be the type of person to have my relationships plastered in magazines.
If you’re smart and you care about life, you’ll take driving seriously.
I want to play a variety of different characters in different genres of film.
I’m skilled in the Twitter and Instagram sense of the social media verse.
I’ve written a few songs that have to do with being in a relationship, the bad and the good.
I would love to work with Cameron Crowe; he’s definitely one of my favorite directors.
You have to be really careful with what you put out on social media and who you’re talking to online.
Guys don’t like girls that throw themselves at them. That’s something that I’ve learned.
When you know what you’re passionate about and what you want to do, just go for it and own it.
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.
My favorite TV show is probably ‘Glee.’ I’m a Gleek, like everyone else!
I guess because people are more aware of who I am, they’re going to wonder about my personal life.
When I go to a concert, I can’t help but feel happy and everything else just goes away. I hope everyone feels that way at my concerts.
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.
I don’t want to sing boring pop songs – I want to sing songs that are meaningful to me.
If you love something, you have to stay really focused and can’t let outside things distract you.
I could work 24 hours and I wouldn’t complain once because I’m happiest when I’m working.
People always ask me, ‘Is there a rivalry between the Nickelodeon and Disney stars? Do you guys hate each other?’ Like everyone has to be on one team. If you’re a Selena Gomez fan, you can’t be a Victoria Justice fan. We’re both half-Latin, and people put us in the same category.
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.
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.
I love ‘Homeland.’ I think it’s such a well-done, well-acted TV show.
I love fashion and there is no easier way to express yourself than through the clothes you wear.
I think there’s a perception out there that people know me based on these glamorous photos they see of me in magazines, but I have about two hours of hair and makeup and then people to dress me, to make me look even better, in those pictures.
I live for comedy. I’ve been doing it for such a long time. Comedy is hard in itself.
When I was younger and first started watching MTV I loved watching TRL. I loved watching my favorite singers/bands perform.
Being a teen can be tough. Just try to surround yourself with really good friends that really have your back, and also be a really good friend to those who really care about you. If you’re not sure about certain things, talk to your friends that you trust and your family.
Guys who are charismatic and fun-loving and sweet and generous are the ones I want to date.
If you’re going through friendship issues, I would say, first of all take a step back. How important is the friendship to you? Sometimes, if someone’s not being a good friend to you and isn’t treating you the way you should be treated, then you kind of have to move on sometimes.
I do love getting dressed up, but sometimes it’s glam and edgy mixed together.
Focus on something that you have a passion for and hone that skill; it will make you feel confident about your ability.
I will say that a lot of songs that I’ve written are from my own personal experiences which are special to me.
I’m all about the supplements. I take fish oil every single day, as well as vitamin D, magnesium, B complex, vitamin C.
When I was little I had this notion of being a marine biologist. I grew up by the ocean so I was always in the water but realistically, I don’t think I would make the best marine biologist.
If you’ve been driving for a little while and nothing’s happened to you yet – and you’ve been texting and driving – you think, ‘Oh nothing’s going to happen.’ But all it takes is an accident happening with one of your friends or God forbid, something happening to you, to really give you a wake-up call.
My day-to-day look is inspired by comfort, color and just how I’m feeling that day.
A guy wants a classy girl who is smart and has goals – someone that he wouldn’t be afraid to bring home to his parents.
I look up to Mick Jagger because he’s an amazing performer and he’s such an individual. I respect him and admire him eternally.
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 feel so honored to be reprising the role of Janet Weiss and stepping into Susan Sarandon’s shoes.
I think it’s really cool how J. Lo’s been able to balance an acting career and a music career. That’s something I strive for.
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?’
Both music and acting are huge parts of my life – it’s all about balance.
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.
Sometimes I feel edgy, sometimes I feel like I want to wear a bright, bold beautiful color.
You know when you have a good relationship with someone when you are just perfectly happy to be quiet and just hang out and do nothing.
