Very talented but I am not enjoying the direction she is heading...seems like a disaster trying to break away from a flood of girls that love the innocence, talent, and beauty without having to be overtly sexual...now that she's 17 she's breaking away hard from that image and I can only say that I am very happy that my 7 year old doesn't like her, idolize her and want to be like her....whew, dodged that bullet.
