Before this brown-eyed girl was topping the charts, selling millions of records and winning a Grammy … she was just an aspiring young singer from Boca Raton, Florida.
She got her start on Broadway in 2008 in the musical, “13,” before rising to TV stardom on a pair of Nickelodeon shows. While acting, she also signed on with Republic Records and released her debut album in 2013, which included her first top-ten single … featuring one of her famous ex-boyfriends.
Speaking of exes, this dangerous gal has several songs inspired by her relationships with them … including her first number-one single last year.
The brunette pop star would follow it up with another number one, and go on to become the first solo artist to hold the top 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.
