When I was asked if I wanted to interview the 27-year-old songstress about her new rendition (for the brand new Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital release of The Little Mermaid) of the iconic song “Part of Your World,” the answer was a great big YES. But it wouldn’t be me providing the questions; rather, it would be my princess and pop music loving second grader.
Check out the very important questions my little journalist asked right here:
Who is your favorite Disney Princess?
Am I allowed to have two? Because it’s totally tied between two. It would have to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid, of course, and Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Ariel from the The Little Mermaid because she has a tail and lives in the ocean and all and Belle because she loves to read books and I’m a nerdy book girl and I’m obsessed with reading.
How many times have you seen The Little Mermaid?
Someone asked me earlier when the first time I saw The Little Mermaid was and I really can’t remember. It was such a part of my childhood, I just remember always knowing the songs, always knowing the storyline, and I really don’t know how many times I’ve seen it, but a lot.
Would you rather be Ariel in the water or Ariel on land?
Um, I think Ariel in the water. For me the grass is always greener on the other side, and since I’m used to the other side, I would have to say living underwater and swimming around with a tail would be my choice.
Do you think the Ursula is the worst Disney villain because she steals voices and you use your voice so much?
I think that Ursula is a really scary one, and losing your voice would be terrible, but I don’t know if she is the worst of all. I was always scared of Jafar from Aladdin, he always scared me.
Do you think that Ariel would give her number to Prince Eric?
(Laughs) I don’t know, but I would hope so!
What is your favorite color?
It changes all the time. It used to be candy apple red but now it’s baby blue.
What is your favorite number?
What are you going to be for Halloween and is there any chance you’ll be Ariel?
Actually, my friends have been asking me that. I’ll be doing a show on Halloween so I’ve been talking to the band about costumes. I don’t know if we’ve decided but we’ve been playing with the idea that we’d all go as our favorite cereal box. It’s really silly. I’d probably be Pebbles! (She did not specify if she would be Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles).
What happened when Disney called you ans asked you to do the song? Did you jump up and down and scream?
Yes, I did pretty much exactly that. I couldn’t believe it. I think the first question I asked was, “Do I get to sing with a full orchestra?” They said YES and so I was very very excited.
