The hottest stars and most-hyped movies, TV shows and mu­sic are all right here.


We caught up with the Dis­ney babe to cel­e­brate the launch of her sec­ond al­bum, Evo­lu­tion (out Oc­to­ber 14). WHAT IN­SPIRES YOU TO WRITE A SONG: YOUR OWN EX­PE­RI­ENCES OR YOUR IMAG­I­NA­TION? It’s a lit­tle bit of both. When I’m writ­ing songs, I take from my life ex­pe­ri­ences and from oth­ers who in­spire me, but I do also love to use my imag­i­na­tion. WHO ARE YOUR BIG­GEST CRE­ATIVE IN­FLU­ENCES? Lin-manuel Mi­randa, who wrote and starred in the Broad­way mu­si­cal Hamil­ton, is the first per­son who comes to mind be­cause he is the def­i­ni­tion of ‘cre­ative’. I’ve been lucky enough to see Hamil­ton twice. I’ve also al­ways looked up to Adele, Christina Aguil­era, Bruno Mars and Justin Tim­ber­lake. To me they have all re­ally taken cre­ativ­ity to the next level and never fail to one-up them­selves ev­ery sin­gle time. WHO IS THE COOLEST CELEB YOU’VE EVER MET? Bey­oncé – I met her at a studio once. There’s re­ally noth­ing to say other than she was like a god­dess fig­ure walk­ing into my life. She’s just as beau­ti­ful on the in­side as she is on the out­side, and that’s such a crazy thing we for­get some­times, that th­ese peo­ple we think are out of reach are ac­tu­ally hu­mans.
