On her first audition:
'A school play: James and the Giant Peach. I tried out for the lead, but I ended up being cast as the silkworm. I didn’t have any lines, but you know what? I killed it. [Laughs] I was a worm, but I was reacting and giving face, and I was the best dang silkworm there ever was.'
On her go to karaoke song:
'Anything by Michael Jackson. I know all the lyrics. But not “Man in the Mirror”—that song makes me too emotional. I’ll just start crying.'
On if she played with barbies:
I didn’t. They didn’t look like me, so I didn’t play with them. As a kid, my main interest was dancing. When I was 8 years old, I was in a hip-hop troupe.

On her Mad Men audition:
'I was 6, and before any audition, I would get so excited. I was obsessed: I liked learning lines. That was fun for me. I remember my first day on set. I was supposed to run into the scene with a plastic bag over my head, and my mother on the show says something like, “Your clothes better not be on the floor.” No one seemed to worry about the potential safety hazard of a 6-year-old with a plastic bag over her head! That was probably a little bit of foreshadowing, the darkness that was ahead for Sally.'
On celebrating her sweet 16:
'I would say it was my favorite birthday! I wore pants and a top by Giamba, and it was a lot of fun. There was food and boys and everything, but it wasn’t a prom!'
On her movie crush:
'I love Eddie Redmayne. I first saw him in Les Mis; I thought he was so, so good. And then The Theory of Everything came out, and he was spectacular. And he’s great in The Danish Girl. I love his commitment to his roles. He has great style too.'

On the first time she performed in public:
'I think I was 9 or 10. I went on the Ellen Show, and it was the craziest experience of my entire life. I was so nervous. My mom told me, “You’ll do great. You can do this.” I got on the stage to sing “Whip My Hair,” and when I was done, they said, “Okay. Cut.” I said, “Do I have to do it again?” And they said, “No—you killed it the first time.” I was, like, “Dang, I had no idea you were even taping.'
On her hit song 'Whip my hair' and if she wanted to be a singer:
'I kept telling my parents that I wanted to sing, and they said, “Okay—we can get some writers and producers here if you want this to be real.” So they got all those people in a room, and I was talking, talking, talking about the things that I loved, and the writers came up with that song. It was a beautiful experience.'
On who she looks up to fashion wise & if she cared about fashion:
'My mom. When she was on tour with Ozzfest, she was very raunchy. I loved watching her onstage.'
