We are gearing up for the premiere of season 4 of “Pretty Little Liars” in June, so it is fitting that the lovely Lucy Hale covers the June/July issue of Seventeen Magazine.
In the issue, Lucy dishes on dating, learning from her mistakes and even gives some insight on her new album.
She’s Learned From Her Mistakes: “[The old Lucy] was confused. I would say things I wouldn’t normally say, or date people I knew I shouldn’t be dating, or go places I know I shouldn’t be at—just making bad decisions and mistakes. Not to say I still don’t make mistakes all the time, but I feel like I’m heading in the right direction.”
She’s Recovered from Her Eating Disorder: “I’m so unbelievably lucky that I’m not like that anymore because it is a horrible way of life and it’s miserable. It consumes everything you think about and you can’t pursue things you want to do…I used to spend so many wasted days being depressed and feeling gross….I learned you have to be happy. People who are the happiest are the most beautiful.”
Staying Positive Is Her New Mantra: “I’ve weeded out the negative people and now only surround myself with people who uplift me…I know what I have to offer and I feel good about it…I never understood jealousy. I’m a girls’ girl. I want to be happy for you and root for you.”
“Everyone’s given different gifts and different blessings for a reason and I just think that so much wasted energy goes into [jealousy]. All the energy you use for being jealous could have been used for something really great.”
She’s Moved On From Ex Chris Zylka: “I was just telling [my best friend] the other day that I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to want to date someone again. It just seems so exhausting. When I like someone, I fall really hard and I invest everything. When it’s gone, I’m like ‘I’m never doing that again!’”
Bonus! Deets About Her New Album: “My album is something I’m really, really, really proud of. I’ve intentionally been quiet about it because I want the music to speak for itself. People are either going to love it or hate it. But I think that once they hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Okay, she loves this and is serious about it.’ This is my pride and joy—it’s my baby! I worked my butt off on it.”
