Be­fore the chart-top­ping songstress makes her big-screen de­but in the up­com­ing an­i­ma­tion Sing, we chat­ted to her to get all the goss from the cutest flick of the year.

HAVE YOU AL­WAYS WANTED TO GET INTO FILM?

There’s some­thing about an­i­mated films that has al­ways in­trigued me, es­pe­cially when­ever they would in­volve mu­sic. I just re­mem­ber watch­ing old Dis­ney Princess movies and re­ally want­ing to be the voice of one of those char­ac­ters.

WHAT AT­TRACTED YOU TO THE ROLE OF MEENA THE ELE­PHANT?

I could re­late to Meena a lot! She’s a re­ally shy, timid girl who loves to sing but doesn’t know how to over­come her fear of get­ting on stage. When I was younger I was def­i­nitely shy; I knew I re­ally wanted to sing but there was some­thing just re­ally scary about it. I had to learn how to get over that fear – once I started singing it would all be OK.

ARE YOU AN AN­I­MAL LOVER?

I am, yeah! I think an­i­mals make the world cuter, I can’t pic­ture a world with­out them. I have two dogs that I love so much – a chi­huahua called Ricco and a boxer pit­bull called Roxy.

WHAT’S YOUR SPIRIT AN­I­MAL?

My spirit an­i­mal will for­ever be an ele­phant – I’m ob­sessed with them now!
