How did you get into Vine?

I was al­ways the funny friend grow­ing up and have al­ways had a love for en­ter­tain­ing but the whole Vine thing was an ac­ci­dent. I was in drama class one day and my friend showed me the app and asked me to start do­ing them be­cause she thought they would be funny. At first I didn’t want to but then I agreed and re­ally loved it.

When did you re­alise you weren’t just muck­ing around and had a se­ri­ous fol­low­ing?

Prob­a­bly around 500k I re­alised, but I don’t know specif­i­cally.

What’s the coolest thing that’s hap­pened to you since you’ve be­come more recog­nis­able?

To me, the coolest thing was get­ting to move to LA! I love it here.

What sort of re­ac­tions do you get from strangers when you go up to them for your videos?

Usu­ally they’re just con­fused or scared! Haha. Some­times they get a lit­tle ir­ri­tated or mad, if that hap­pens I just run away.

What in­spires the ideas for your videos?

I usu­ally re­flect or make com­edy out of ac­tual things that have hap­pened to me in my life.

Will you be do­ing more Lau­ren and Co videos?

Right now the se­ries just ended, but in the fu­ture YES. I loved it, it was a blast.

Who would you love to be a part of your videos?

Mi­randa Sings, Tyler Oak­ley, Ari­ana Grande, Amy Schumer,

and Bey­oncé.

You re­cently re­leased your first pro­duced cover song. How did you de­cide on “Whisky” as your de­but track?

I have been in love with Mar­ian Hill for a while so I knew I wanted to cover some­thing by them. Then I just knew I wanted it to be that one.

Will you be do­ing more songs?

Yes! Twice a month!

What’s next for you?

MU­SIC! Orig­i­nal mu­sic!!!
