I knew I wanted to act, and I was really driven, so I kept going for it. We moved to L. A. full-time when I was 8 or 9.
People talk worse about people than they talk good about people, because a lot of people like drama.
I ate a bug once. It was flying around me. I was trying to get it away. It went right in my mouth. It was so gross!
Like going to my favorite restaurant, it can sometimes get hard. I just can't go to the mall.
I stopped going to school in the middle of fourth grade. Everyone grows up with the peer pressure, and kids being mean to each other in school. I think that's such a horrible thing, but I never really dealt with it in a high school way.
Mom always tells me to celebrate everyone's uniqueness. I like the way that sounds.
People are going to say what they want to say and think what they want to think, and I can't change their minds.
I'm drawing the gossip surrounding the celebrity, or the image the celebrity tries to push on us.
I know I can handle dramatic roles, but I don't think I should have to play a young mother on crack to prove it.
I have an older sister named Haley and she wanted to be an actress. So I wanted to be an actress. It's really funny the way that some people don't give kids enough credit for like really being driven, and really wanting to do things so badly.
At first, when I got bad press and people would talk bad about my family or something like that, I would get really upset, but now it's just not worth my energy.
Now my music is kind of pop-rock, right? If I'm 25 and singing still, I don't want to be singing music like that.
Sometimes I just wish I had a day off. I really need to clean my room.
No, I'm not! I'm not a tomboy! I love my makeup! That's not true! I'm not a tomboy!
My life is very crazy and busy, but I love it that way.
Weird, but sometimes I feel more like my cartoon character than I do Lizzie because she's a little more edgy and snappy.
I also love Dido and Nelly Furtado and people who are really into their music like that. And I love Renee Zellweger.
I love clothes. I can't control myself. I have a huge fetish for shoes and clothes and make-up. I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to wear things over and over again.
I started taking singing classes just two years ago. It was great. I never knew I could sing but I kind of found my voice.
I pop gum. My parents get so annoyed with me. I know my dad wishes he never taught me how to do that.
When I'm on tour, I'm in a new city every single night, and the energy and the crowds and the kids and the screaming and them knowing every single word of my music and being onstage is such an energetic feeling with a big payoff.
