As soon as the camera is on her, it’s astonishing. She’s a true star, a true hardworker. When she dances, and she is with twenty of the best dancers in the world, your eye goes to her. When she sings, I mean, when I would do my vocal sessions with Justin & Benj, they were like: “No, this way, this way.” Like, really. And with her, they’d just let it go. She is a pure natural. She is unbelievably respectful to everyone she works with, incredibly professional. And, it really hasn’t happened very often in my life, to work with someone where it’s so blindingly obvious, that she is going to be, if she wants it, the biggest star of her generation. And that could be in music, or dance or acting, whatever she wants.
