Quote of the Day:

Do I watch Halloweentown tonight or do I wait a few weeks? That is the question.

Elizabeth Gillies

Now that’s one Birthday Card! Yesterday, Candie’s modified their billboard in Times Square to wish Bella Thorne a Happy 17th Birthday.

This is interesting? Radio Disney tweeted a link to vote for The Vamps, Meghan Trainor, or Kalin & Myles to be the next VEVO Lift artist. To date, they’ve never played Kalin & Myles. Although, when they do we’ll be sure to add that info to our long list of artists you’ve read about here first that later wound up on their playlist.

Mackenzie Ziegler

October 8th, 2014

Tommy2: Hey, it’s Tommy2 and we’re in for a treat today – we’ve got Mackenzie Ziegler joining us to talk about the awesome music she’s been putting out and her exciting summer. Mackenzie how are you doing?

Mackenzie Ziegler: I’m good.

Tommy2: Awesome! Now since we talked last, you’ve been so busy. First off I want to know about your visit to the Teen Choice Awards. Who did you enjoy seeing perform?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well, I like Jason Derulo and I liked Demi Lovato’s performance.

Tommy2: Okay, that was interesting but you failed to mention the most important detail. Who was the hottest guy you saw there?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Nash Grier!

Tommy2: Now that didn’t even take a second to think about. Okay, prior to the awards, you were in Europe and Australia for the Abby Lee Master Class events. First off why don’t you give a run down of what those events are like.

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well, we just do some photo-ops with people. They come in and we take some pictures with them and then we do a Master Class and we teach them some combos and yeah, that’s pretty much… and then we perform.

Tommy2: Yes…you forgot the biggest part there, you perform! I saw one of those videos on YouTube.

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yeah.

Tommy2: That was awesome.

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes.

Tommy2: Is that kind of challenging sometimes because you’re not exactly in the normal dance and performance environment?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yeah, sometimes.

Tommy2: But you just gotta go with it, right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yeah.

Tommy2: Okay, and did you get a chance to see a little bit of Europe and Australia?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes, it was so cook being in Australia because we got to see all the kangaroos, and we held koala bears, so that was pretty cool. And in Europe it was really fun cause we went to the Eiffel Tower, and then in Paris we saw the Love Lock bridge. So…

Tommy2: It sounds like you got photo-ops with all the things you associate with those countries?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Mhmm.

Tommy2: Now let’s move to your music, when we talked last you just had put out your single for “It’s A Girl Party” and mentioned an album release was just around the corner. Did you have any clue that your self-titled debut would go all the way to #1 on iTunes?

Mackenzie Ziegler: No, I didn’t know that I was going to go all the way to #1, I thought I would just be at like #47 or something.

Tommy2: And not only did you have your success with that album, but “It’s A Girl Party” the music video is just still going, and going strong. It’s almost at 5 million views, is that another shock for you?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes, I was so excited when it got to 5 million views, well… it’s almost at 5 million views. But I was so excited.

Tommy2: And now you’ve got everybody singing that song in their head right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes! Sometimes when we’re doing photo-ops we have to listen to all of my songs over and over again and it gets stuck in hour heads.

Tommy2: But it’s still fun right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes.

Tommy2: Okay, now tomorrow, you’ll be releasing your new music video for “Shine.” What can you tell us about it?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well, my sisters in it, because it’s about my sister and she’s going to be dancing in it and we’re going to be on stage. And, it’s like a dream, and I’m dreaming that I’m dancing like her on stage.

Tommy2: And what’s next with your music, will you be heading into the studio anytime soon?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well, I’m going to do a Christmas album. Well, I did my singles… my Christmas single and it’s called “Christmas All Year Long” and I just finished the video for it.

Tommy2: So we’ll definitely have to be looking forward to that, huh?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Mhmm.

Tommy2: And what about that next step – will we get to see you doing any shows sometime soon?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well our working schedule is very tight, but I will eventually.

Tommy2: Say… eventually here I’m going to breakout and go solo right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: (Laughter)

Tommy2: Also, you’ve got another exciting thing you’re involved with and that’s a new clothing line. Why don’t us about the new “Maddie & Mackenzie Collection” that’s available at Mod Angel?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes, well it just went on sale so you can go buy it now. And, it was so much fun to do the photo shoot with my sister and Miss Abby.

Tommy2: And one thing special about this is that there’s only 100 of each piece and they’re even numbered, right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yep!

Tommy2: And one thing I can’t forget is what started this all, and that’s “Dance Mom’s.” Looking back is there an episode that’s one of your favorites?

Mackenzie Ziegler: I pretty much like all of them.

Tommy2: Obviously you’re very busy with all the things we’ve been talking about. What’s your daily schedule like these days?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I go to school. And then after school I go do privates earlier at one o’clock and I go to regular dance until nine.

Tommy2: Now since it’s October have you thought much about Halloween yet?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well, I don’t have my Halloween costume yet because we usually just go… one time we went as ourselves because we didn’t have any costumes. And we usually wear our dance costumes for Halloween.

Tommy2: So that’s the fall back just in case nothing comes to mind?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yep!

Tommy2: And of course there’s a lot of scary movies coming out, are you into scary movies?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Well… some of them if they’re not too scary because sometimes I get really scared and I can’t sleep at night.

Tommy2: Sleep is a good thing, right?

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes.

Tommy2: Mackenzie thanks so much for taking time for us today, it’s been fun again.

Mackenzie Ziegler: Yes, thank you!
