Actually was like hey I see you solo with -- you're on my radar again and I am the great -- He didn't let love that it and I listing of the new -- of material girl Madonna implying it's so exciting I think first of all. Just about I've been Madonna knows who Miami then turned her daughter like -- -- thing to an amazing thing and do and -- that can really be close like adding the cool list. Like juniors line that's available and that's for us and that flight.

Outstanding let me -- -- move on -- on -- fashion front what would you say your style is because it's. You're always looking good all thank you do you I would say on the very like urban chic -- -- like to take kind of more alike. -- being inspired street wearing a mile and kind of girly. Twist to it so me my -- as long we definitely have kind of found -- in fashion we just like to take risks. And being mean seventeen -- it should be confined to a box and just have fun like this is the time for me to experiment with fashion and try different styles on -- as well do it. And have some believe you're seventeen years and while spoke and -- think I mean some experts here anyways it graduates and when my 18 September 1 I will use. We'll do without love that your view they have not turned your back on the Disney Channel now I love Disney Channel movies my my kids do is that we watching together -- is on I like that. Boys can be you can train a -- like you train a dog -- the cuts. You might think I'm that basically Mike can't answer that -- -- -- a new step dad and step Brothers and everything in. Her life is basically flipped upside down in the boys around urges. As UNC just not. Really working for her so she tries to kind of manipulate her life and make it better by using -- on it and that is magical something happens and it's. How -- is -- a very confused -- that -- right there is either like forty. -- night I I think and he he's my age united everything everyone in the industry plays again anyway it's going. Working for the disease -- you see people like Miley Cyrus sort of take that total left turn from where they came from you ever. -- that's gonna happen -- you -- I kind of I portal I don't worry about that I think everyone has own career path -- their -- you know destiny what they're supposed to do and I admire the fact that she's so confident in her skin to be able to do that because not a lot of people. Can do that -- -- this is me. And just take whatever comes along with that so that's admirable if she's able to do that for me -- -- Obviously not going to be doing the same being you know -- I have a different drip -- a different personality that's just not who I am I'm going to be doing some indifferent to grow differently but. I think -- -- have to respect everyone's version of growing up in whatever they go through. You're gonna grow differently but to us gonna take some chances and some risks of playing Alia right and -- -- a lifetime movie she died way too young and a plane crashed some reports say the family isn't. You know overly thrilled that a movies being made I've been here. That puts you on the defensive where are you on that right now. Right now you know we haven't start mentioning thing but that was -- -- -- was my number one concern and mind. Important thing was you know the mother and the brother and that you know lifetime reached out IE -- I didn't. I didn't feel comfortable and how they did so they're working on making they reached out and family makes everything's okay did you reach out -- letter -- call -- what I mean I'm a -- -- -- of -- because they did the most important thing you begin I have been Eliot's plan miles highlights so. No I -- just cast like any other any other person would mean I I auditioned like anyone else tonight I got cast in the part and I just outlining it to be something that they're proud of and that she would be out of because all it is really you know the lifetime movie so it's never. It's just to honor her and into show how credible in the things she was able to -- that's online news that there is a little backlash on social media do you listen to a -- you -- you know for fire back. But I think you know people aren't tied to -- and -- you know people are. You know some people know me from the Disney Channel only know me from this and they don't maybe not don't think that I can handle the role -- won't be able to do whatever. But at the same time I was cast in the part I had nation like everyone else and I was -- and like I said my passion my love for early is so strong that feel like I would I'm just gonna channel her -- and do my best it. Honor someone I love so much -- taken so much from in my career and that's. It's an acting gig and you know what don't if you're if you're ever sending at tweet to seventeen year old girl -- beat up on shame on you don't listen to those people. And a great job you learn the part. And go do it right -- that. -- movies that premieres Friday based on Disney Channel and little -- -- -- be watching. Yeah.
