1. When did you know you wanted to be an artist?

In high school, my choir threw a bash. We would sing our choir songs and mix it with random solos. My teacher let me sing “Flat on the Floor” by Carrie Underwood and I got a standing ovation. I walked off the stage thinking, “How can I feel like this forever?”

2. Who influences you musically?

I feel like this changes daily for me. Being an artist is being very moody (laughs) My go-to’s are Destiny’s Child, Paramore, and Katy Perry. But my current playlist is Post Malone, Ariana Grande, and SZA.

3. If you could duet with any artist, who would you pick and why?

I feel like my fans want me to say Billie Eilish, which holy crap that would be a dream. But honestly I would lose my mind if I performed with Hayley Williams. So much jumping and belting. It would rock.

4. What’s one food you CANNOT live without?

Sushi. And that’s on rainbow roll.

5. If you could have any superpower in the world, what would it be?

To read minds. I know everyone says this superpower is the worst and that they want to fly. But I’m fascinated by the mind and would love to know what people are thinking and even more specifically, thinking about me

6. What’s been the highlight of your career so far?

Probably Katy Perry singing my song, “Don’t Want U Back.” I just about lost my mind when that happened. And then it was caught on film and broadcasted to millions? Crazy.

7. Are you a morning person or night owl?

Ugh. Right now, I’ve been doing a lot of studio work, so I’m currently a night owl. But I don’t like it. I’m more like a morning owl? (laughs) In a perfect world, I go to bed at midnight and wake up at 8:30 am. That’s the schedule I try to stay on most of the time.

8. What is your most used emoji?

Always in my top 2: ??

9. Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.”

10. Where do you see yourself in five years? Any future projects in the works?

In five years, I want to be on a stadium tour. My goal is to sell out the Staples Center in three years. Big dream, but I think I can do it! Right now, I’m working on releasing my next single, “Circles,” and releasing a ton of content on TikTok and YouTube. It’s going to be a year of new music and dope music videos. Definitely keep an eye out!
