Lucy Hale has grown into an acting sensation due to the success of Pretty Little Liars.
But the 21-year old tells the latest issue of Teen Vogue that she "wanted to be a singer" while growing up in Memphis. ABC Family fans are glad she followed a different career path.
In the magazine's featured interview, Hale also dishes on Pretty Little Liars spoilers, fashion and her affection for a certain curly-haired singer. Excerpts follow.
On Taylor Swift: "She's amazing - listening to her songs is like reading a girl's diary. We've gone through a lot of the same relationship things."
On preferred fashion: "When I dress up for events, I prefer Marc Jacobs and Dior. But I dream about wearing Chanel one day."
On life in Los Angeles: "There's jealousy everywhere and tons of politics. The problem is that people in L.A. never really have to grow up."
