TWIST just hung out with Bella Thorne! She dished to us about her new music, her favorite charities and Shake It Up. Check out our exclusive convo and video below!
TWIST: Can you tell us about your new music?
Bella Thorne: My music is very different. It's not all one genre. I've done more rock music, more hip-hop, more groovy. I have more TTYL kind of music and more dance music with dubstep. I don't want them to hear something on the radio and be like 'Oh, I could definitely see Bella doing that -- that's like all of her songs' -- I don't want that.
TWIST: Can you tell us about your work with the Never Quit Trying campaign. Why is it important to you?
BT: The Never Quit Trying campaign is really interesting. It's a huge organization for dyslexia. It's so amazing to meet all of these really smart people that have grown up in the world of business and who all have dyslexia. That was really inspiring. I'm lucky and thankful that they have me there. I know a lot of dyslexic kids and I know how hard it was for me. It's important that you never quit trying because no matter what, sooner or later you're going to get there.
TWIST: Why did you decide to get involved with Get Schooled?
BT: I think when you go to school every morning you're like, 'Ugh, I have to go to school.' It's not a fun experience; it's not something that you're like, 'Yay let's go to school and get up early!' What Get Schooled does is make it a really fun experience -- we had a dance party and had a lot of fun there. We made it different, which I thought was really important, like 'Oh my school's super cool, we had a dance party!'
TWIST: Can you tell us what's coming up on Shake It Up?
BT: We have a "Freaky Friday" episode that's pretty interesting. Flynn and I switch brains, which was just so weird. It was hard for me joke-wise because I look like a tomboy. It was like, 'OK, her character is a tomboy anyway, what does it matter?' It was funny for Davis because he was like, 'OMG' and totally like my character. That was really funny for him -- he has most of the jokes in that episode!
