I've had a normal life, but I have struggled to get here. It hasn't been handed to me and it hasn't been easy.
I love change, and I love changing my hair. But it was strange to look in the mirror and think "Who is this girl?"
I don't drink, and I don't smoke. It's a personal preference. My mom has never drunk or smoked. I look up to my mom.
I'm happy that I was able to experience a normal life besides show business, because it gives you something to draw from.
I love Christmas, not just because of the presents but because of all the decorations and lights and the warmth of the season.
When fans come up to me and Vanessa, they're really sweet and ask for autographs - but once they see the guys, the girls tend to scream.
Zac Efron would make us feel guilty for eating big dinners. He'd say, ""Do you really want to eat those carbs?"" It was like, ""Thanks a lot!""
I did find some time to go to a record store and check out ""Headstrong"" actually in the racks. It was pretty cool; I never thought I'd see my own CD sitting there with everyone else's. I made my Mom take lots of pics!
Once in high school, I completely over plucked my left eyebrow all the way up to where you're not supposed to. I had no idea what I was doing and it looked terrible! My mom was like ""What did you do to yourself?"" I was so embarrassed.
I feel like people expect a lot out of girls, like you're supposed to know who you are and what you want out of life right now. Some girls know. I did. But lots of people don't know. You have to try a lot of things and not worry about what people are thinking.
