Lily Collins: 'I'm Not The Next Rihanna Or Adele'
EXCLUSIVE! Phil Collins' daughter hasn't ruled out a music career...
Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 14:03
The Stuck In Love actress, who recorded her first song I Believe (In Love) for 2011 flick Mirror Mirror, hasn't ruled out swapping the big screen for the stage, revealing she would love to combine her passion for acting with music.
Speaking exclusively to MTV News UK, the 24-year old explained: "I'd never say never, but I would like to do a musical movie where I get to experiment with that more, as acting if definitely my focus and my passion.
"Incorporating music would be quite fun I think and musical movies are definitely happening right now."
When asked which particular artist she would most like to sound like, Lily replied: "Oh my gosh there's too many that I enjoy listening to. I'm kind of a mix of everything really. I don't really have one in particular.
"I love Rihanna but I don't think you could be the next Rihanna… I love Adele but no-one could be the next Adele. I'd want to be the best version of myself and draw from all the artists that I really like listening to and create kind of a new type of sound."
She added: "I just want to be Lily. I don't want to be doubling anybody because everyone is so awesome as they are."
You can catch Lily as Samantha Borgens in new flick Stuck In Love, which is out June 14. Read our review of the movie here!
