Sindy: Congratulations on the upcoming album!
Ashlee: Thank you so much. I am so excited about it. It is like the coolest feeling, you know. It was just so much fun. I've been doing 7th Heaven for a little while and everything and now I get to have my album and it's really just from my heart and I hope that people like it. I had a lot of fun making it.

Sindy: I really like the single so far.
Ashlee: Thank you so much. Yeah, my album it's got that kind of feel to it, it's definitely rock with a pop sort of edge to it. I'm really excited about it.

Sindy: Cool. So what was it like to have people film you recording your album for your new reality TV show?
Ashlee: That was definitely interesting. The reality show - I chose to do it because it's like a making of the album but at the same time they come into my real life too. And you kind of get to see everything I go through in the process. Sometimes there's stress and sometimes there are these amazing moments. Like, my very best friend, who I went to elementary school and junior high with, lives with me now. And so she is definitely part of it - cuz I get to come home and I'm like a regular teenager, I'm with my friends. And they got to capture that.

Sindy: Do you think it was a harder process having it all taped?
Ashlee: I think there are times when it is definitely going to be harder having it on TV. I think it might have been easier if I had of just kind of gone and done it, but I'm kind of excited because they like captured when I signed my recording contract to all this stuff. Right now I might be like, 'Oh my gosh,' when I go and watch it - cuz it's really hard to watch yourself, especially when it's reality - but I think that at the end of the day I am going to be so excited that I have that footage on tape when I'm older, to look back on and be like 'Oh my God, that's when I signed my deal' or 'That's when I wrote that song'. So I think that's a cool feeling.

Sindy: So have you always wanted to sing?
Ashlee: I have always wanted to sing. I never really believed in myself - I didn't know that I could do it. Then I just kind of did and now I am just so happy with it.

Sindy: What do you like better then - the singing or the acting?
Ashlee: I like both of them. I think that they both have had a really good influence on each other. With singing, I've got to do a little bit of acting cuz I'll have written a song and I have to go back into that moment when I record it and what I was feeling when I wrote it. And for acting - I just love acting - I love being on set and I love jumping into characters. I think that sometimes before I shoot scenes I'll actually listen to music before I do it to get me in the mood. So they have both been a big part of each other.

Sindy: Are you staying with 7th Heaven for a while?
Ashlee: Umm, I'm going to do 7th Heaven for some more episodes but I'm really at this point so excited about my album that I really want to focus on that.

    Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

    Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
