  • I don't know what that means.

  • Smiley face emoji.

  • I don't know if I can do an Irish accent.

  • I don't know about this boyband member bagging.

  • You're making waves in the music industry right now. They're saying you're more influential

  • than Miley. What's that like? People saying that when you're not even doing stuff half

  • as crazy as she is?

  • I don't know. I'm a massive Miley fan. I love her, like I think she's the coolest and I

  • think she has so much fun and I feel like she gets a lot of hate for everything that

  • she does, but I mean, she's just having fun. I want people to have fun. I think the world

  • needs to have more fun, you know what I mean? And whatever that means, whether twerking

  • is for you or not, I think that people just need to have more fun and lighten up a lot

  • more. And I think she's bringing fun and silliness and a sense of humour back to pop music and

  • I love that and she's amazing and I think the coolest thing about it is that like her

  • music is really good and she's just pushing the envelope and yeah... And doesn't really

  • care what anybody else says. I think that's a great thing. I can't see myself ever twerking,

  • but yeah, I think she does a great job at what she does.

  • I think you're a very sassy character though on Twitter and stuff. I love how... Oh God.

  • No, I like how opinionated you are. Do you think it's really important for your fans,

  • for them to see you kind of standing up for yourself?

  • Yeah, of course. I mean, I think, if it's necessary, if things happen that you need

  • to stand up for yourself for, you absolutely should take the opportunity. Um, but I would

  • love to just use Twitter as a platform to talk to my fans and like have a great day,

  • like smiley face emoji. I don't condone drama. I don't condone any silliness like that, but

  • you know, there comes a time when you need to stand up for yourself and sometimes it's

  • just what it calls for, but yeah I love... I don't know, I love my fans for being understanding

  • of that and supporting me.

  • Well, you've got ten million of them on there, so you're doing something right.

  • Now, you have got your new single Right There featuring Big Sean coming out on November

  • the 11th. How important is it to you that it does well in the UK?

  • Very important. Um, I love coming here. I love the UK. I love my UK fans. So it's really

  • important that does it does well here, but um... Yeah, I don't know. I hope everybody

  • likes it.

  • And you've got your album out, and I believe you've got a song on there with boyfriend

  • Nathan.

  • What was it like in the studio working together? Because I know if I was in the studio with

  • a guy I really liked and I really fancied, I would get no work done.

  • Well, here's the thing about it. We weren't dating at the time when the song happened.

  • And it was sort of a surprise to me, like I just recorded the song as a ballad. I thought

  • it was just going to be a ballad on the album, and then one day our manager Scooter Braun

  • sent me an email. He said check this out, and it had Nathan on it and it was like the

  • song but in duet form, and I was like... Geeking. Just fan girling. I was dying. He killed it,

  • and yeah I don't know. I love his voice.

  • What's it been like though hanging out with Nathan and the rest of The Wanted lads?

  • It's been fun. It's been amazing. I love getting to know the rest of the boys. They're all

  • really nice, yeah. He's in great company.

  • Our other quote British boyband One Direction is making waves in the US. What do you think

  • of them?

  • What do I make of them? Yeah. I don't know what that means. I don't know what I make

  • of them. What does that mean?

  • What do you think they're like? Do you like them?

  • I'm not too familiar with like all of their music, but I think they're great. I love like

  • their big songs that I've heard on the radio stuff, I think are really fun.

  • You can concentrate on The Wanted anyway.

  • Now, who would you like to work with in the future, both on screen acting and in the studio?

  • I love, on screen, I'd love to work with like Steve Carrell or like Seth Rogan, Jim Carey.

  • I love the funny guys.

  • And in music...

  • I would love to work with Imogen Heap. She's like my number one favourite artist of all

  • time. She's my inspiration. It would be a dream come true. I don't think it will happen,

  • and if I ever got the opportunity I'd probably cry, but yeah that's like a dream collab...

  • Or like Frank Ocean, Bruno Mars.

  • That's very similar to what Jennette said about comedy actors.

  • Oh, really?

  • Yeah, she probably said like Robin Williams.

  • She was exactly the same. Tina Fey, all of them. I got Jennette to try something, which

  • was just to test your versatility seeing as that you're in the UK. See what you're like

  • with your accents.

  • I was practising last night.

  • Okay, let's see what your British accent is like.

  • What do you want me to say?

  • Anything you want. Tell us what you've been doing in London.

  • Oh, I can't do this. I'm like the worst.

  • In London...

  • Um...

  • I've been working and

  • meeting lots of nice fans. I can't do this.

  • That's great. How about Irish? Because Jennette was really good at Irish.

  • She is? I don't know if I can do an Irish accent.

  • No, I sound my lucky charms.

  • That's cool. It was a mix between an American/Irish accent.

  • Terrible. That was great. No, that was good. Better than what I could do, which is why

  • I didn't attempt it.

  • You have to try it now. You can't like leave me hanging.

  • This is my British accent. I think it's pretty good.

  • Can you do an American accent?

  • Uh... I can try. I don't know. I'm not very good.

  • That's good. That was really good. That was much better than my British accent. I love

  • it.

  • Now, like I said, you bagged yourself cutie Nathan Sykes from The Wanted. Being a singleton,

  • it would be great to know what your top three tips are to bagging yourself a boyband member.

  • The three tips to bag... Top three tips! I don't know how, what the protocol is for boyband

  • member bagging.

  • Um, but as far as um, but as far as like boys in general, I'll just go with that, I guess

  • um... Don't like try too hard. I think when you're looking, you don't find anything, you

  • know? And um, I think always let a boy initiate.

  • You know? Because if you like text a boy, like in the beginning, you have to be a little

  • cautious and like, not play games, but just be a little like wary because um, as a girl

  • you just don't want to get hurt or whatever. But um, I think in the beginning, you just

  • have to like, always let the boy initiate. That's the easiest way to do it because if

  • you text a boy like hey and like he doesn't hit you back for the next four days, you're

  • going to be like... What have I done? You know what I mean? So just let the boy initiate

  • and just don't try too hard and be yourself and I don't know about this boyband member

  • bagging. I'm not much help.

  • I think they're good tips. I'll take them on board.

I don't know what that means.
