3. She loves dancing and wants to step up her game. "I get so inspired by it," she says. "I'm working on it, but I'm nowhere near ready for So You Think You Can Dance!"

4. Her style is retro but modern. "I'm really in love with the modern take on the '60s and '70s happening right now," she shares. "One of my biggest style inspirations is Twiggy, so seeing pieces from that time period makes me really happy."

5.  Her go-to nail polish color is white because it goes with everything. Once in a while, she'll mix it up and go for a bold red color instead.

6. She was so inspired by Penny Lane in Almost Famous that she named her first guitar after her. "She's mysterious, free-spirited and lives her life as if it were an art piece," she gushes. We could say the same about her, not to mention how talented she also is. ????
