Megan Nicole stopped by the TWIST offices to talk about her music and her YouTube success. She spilled about her style, and her advice for accessorizing. To find out her favorite YouTubers, check out our Q&A below! Plus, find out her best tip on posing for pictures in our exclusive video!
TWIST: How did you first start singing? Megan Nicole: I started singing when I was in fourth grade. My dad got us a karaoke machine for Christmas and I started to play around on that, and I realized that I really enjoy singing. But it probably wasn't until my freshman year [of high school], when I picked up the guitar, that I really fell in love with music altogether and decided that it was something that I wanted to pursue.
TWIST: Tell us about the video that started it all for you! MN: The video that started it all was a cover of [Eminem and Rihanna's] "Love the Way You Lie." It was a collaboration video and it ended up going viral. I ended up rapping a verse in the song, which was very interesting. We had another rapper, but he only learned two of the verses, so the other singer said, "Do you wanna give it a go?" and I said, "I don't usually rap, but I'll give it a try!" It seemed to work!
TWIST: Do you have any favorite YouTubers? MN: I really enjoy Boyce Avenue, I've worked with them four times before. They're really awesome and very, very talented. They're good at putting a twist on the song.
TWIST: Do you have a go-to favorite outfit? MN: I have this little black leather dress I got from H&M that I wear all the time, it's so easy! I love dresses because you put them on and you have a complete outfit. That's usually my go-to dress because it's plain and black and I can wear some fun tights with it.
TWIST: What is the biggest fashion mistake that you see girls make? MN: Shorts that look more like underwear!
TWIST: How can you best accessorize an outfit? MN: Definitely just having simple pieces that go with a lot of things. Like maybe a pair of little studs that you can wear with every outfit, a simple necklace and probably something that's either silver or gold in color that can go with a lot of things.
TWIST: Describe your personal style! MN: Well, I love heels and I love tights. That's actually kind of one thing that I'm sad about. I am happy that it's starting to become warm again but I love wearing tights because I have so many crazy kinds. I also love high-waisted skirts and collared shirts.
TWIST: Do you have any tips on walking in heels? MN: I don't know where I heard this from but you're supposed to walk heel-toe, heel-toe, so sometimes I'll catch myself when I'm walking and remind myself because I'll stumble. I'm not very good in walking in heels so I don't know if I should be the one giving advice. Although I do love them, I'm not the best at walking in them.
TWIST: Do you have any favorite drugstore beauty products? MN: I really like Baby Lips. I have this Cover Girl lipgloss I use a lot. Drugstores are great for lipglosses and nail polish.
TWIST: When can we expect more music from you? MN: They can expect to hear more music in the spring. That's very soon, so I'm very excited!
