"I love roller coasters. I love the Disney Cruise, seriously. I told myself I would never go on a cruise and I went on that and it changed my world. It's so good, it's so clean, and the food is delicious. And, they're not paying me for this. I think I sold the Disney Cruise to so many people because I was so impressed. I didn't even have a kid at that time. I went with my family and I was like, 'I don't want to go.' I had my own room and everything and I was like, 'Yo! What is this?' I started telling everybody and they were like, We're going to go! And I'm like, Maybe they should be paying me now," she says with a laugh. Have you taken your daughter, Ella? "I haven't yet. I'll take her next year for sure. Disney, hook it up," she laughs. WE WANT MORE Do you ever get out to Miami? "I've been to Miami once. I think I didn't know what to expect. Oh, everybody's in shape? I'm going to put my towel back on." She laughs. "Um, that's the Miami I saw. I was like, 'Holy hell.' And I stayed at, what is that hotel? It's a very snazzy hotel. It's huge, blue…" Fontainebleau? "I stayed there and I felt so, again, this is my introverted..." She gasps. "I don't know if I belong here," she whimpers. "It was just so big and all the women were just gorgeous and the men were like, y'know.... But I need to go there now. I need to do Miami-Miami. I need to go to that really famous club that everybody goes to, that people can't get into." LIV? "LIV. Is that still good? I feel like I need to do Miami --go to all the restaurants, party, and go to the pool. Once I workout more, I think I'll go back," she laughs. What are you watching on TV? "Semi-ashamed and semi-not, 'cause I'm on a set all the time, sometimes you just need a getaway from... not that I need to make an excuse for what I'm watching, but I'm like, I can't watch another movie. I don't want to watch anything. I just want to watch reality TV. I just want to watch 90 Day Fiancé. I'm hooked on this show. I tell people about it like I tell them about this Disney Cruise. Whoever created that show is a genius, that's my show." What artists are you listening to? "So, I have Spotify now… so late to everything. I love the new Justin Bieber album. He has this one song. I have to put this out, I couldn't stop listening to it. I always think of when they're singing, I'm like, I'm in the video. I'm like, Oh my God, that's such a sweet song, like, he's talking about me. But I don't care if it's him, you just feel like that girl, y'know? It's just such a good song. It's not "Yummy," it's the other song that's probably really popular. But anyway, I like his song, I thought it was really cute." You did a music video. "I have. I did one with Jason Derulo," she sings his name and laughs. How was it doing that? "I did Jason Derulo's "It Girl" and then I did a video with Mos Def a long time ago with the black girl who is in The Bronx Tale. It was such a good set. I was like, Oh, I don't mind doing this again. I was Jason Derulo's It Girl; this is when I was on Gossip Girl. It's like a love story. It was fun," she laughs. "Super sweet guy." Photo Courtesy ABC
