I actually love that idea.

Your first full-length album is coming out in September. Can you tell us a little bit about that? I’ve heard about a collaboration with LMFAO?

Yeah, actually. I look back on how the whole CD was made and the people that I met along the way and I don’t think I could have had that happen twice. It has a lot to do with timing and fate. Like I met Redfoo at the airport. I was getting kind of mobbed and his security men and him came over and saved me, and that’s how we met. Then we wrote a song together because we really hit it off. Him, Matthew Koma, Dallas Austin, Toby Gad, who else … there’s definitely people I’m forgetting—Cory Enemy. I’ve been very lucky with the people that have taken interest in the project and the collaborations we’ve made together I feel really excited about.

Are you guys just finishing and wrapping it up? Almost ready to go?
Yeah, actually today while I was getting ready to come here I did my first real listen-through and I’m really, really excited. I think there’s a couple songs here and there that we have to tie up some loose ends, but we’re in the homestretch.

What song are you most looking forward to getting out there and sharing?
There’s a song called “This Kiss” that I think I’m looking forward to sharing the most.

You’re definitely bringing the bang trend back in for summer. You actually inspired mine! Do you have any other beauty tips and tricks for summer?  
I can’t really say that I do. I’m still enjoying discovering more designers and getting to play dress-up in a bigger way than I ever have before. I’m new to this world, but I’m enjoying it very much.

You’re lucky you aren’t here on one of our extremely hot, horrible days. It’s been in the 100s like crazy.
Well we’re from Canada, so I don’t mind. [Giggles] It’s a nice change.

And I have to ask … did the guy from “Call Me Maybe” ever call?
[Laughs] Well if you’ve seen the video, he’s not actually even into girls. But that song was actually inspired by the guy that I was dating and it just ended up being one of those things where I never actually asked a guy for his number and I thought that’s one place where in music you can kind of live vicariously through your imagination and your braver self and that’s sort of what happened.
