It's not hard to fall in love with our December cover girl: those blond curls, that sweet voice and a mega-watt smile that just won't quit. And to top it all off, she's got a very smart take on her superstar life.
"I don't feel as if I need to make some giant statement," she told us. "When you start over-thinking everything, you stop being who you are and start being who you think you should be. I'm just going to continue to be who I am."
