The "Umbrella" singer becomes a CoverGirl
Did you play with makeup as a girl?
I was a tomboy until my early teens and then my mom, a makeup artist, wouldn't let me because I was too young. But now I can because I'm a CoverGirl.
What are your favorite products?
I never leave the house without concealer—it's so important under the eyes.
Why did you cut your hair?
I just had to get that innocent, generic look off of me! I had to come into my own, be edgy and different.
