"Marilyn Monroe Is Not One Of My Heroes"
LB: Oh, it was a different producer?
LB: Are you going to tour or perform in support of the iTunes releases?
HM: Um, I'm not sure about a tour, but yeah, I think I want to perform in several places. 'Cause "Higher" is coming out, but I also have some other songs coming out. And I'm doing those also. So yeah, I want to perform.
LB: Like concerts?
HM: Yeah I think so.
LB: Who do you consider your musical influences?
HM: I have a bunch of people I consider musical influences. I would say The Eagles are one. Elvis Presley, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears...
LB: Britney Spears?
HM: Um, not so much now, but before.
LB: Poor girl.
HM: Yeah, I know. Gloria Estefan. I love her. Just a bunch of people. I feel that music is influenced by everyone, actually.
LB: By everyone?
HM: Yeah. I'm influenced by everyone.
LB: Do you consider yourself more of a musician or an actress?
HM: I would definitely consider myself a singer.
LB: Have you had training before? Or lessons?
HM: I have. I used to take voice lessons when I was younger. I have always been in musicals. I've been in dance performances. I've been training for this since a young age.
LB: So music is your passion?
HM: Definitely. It is truly my passion.
LB: I know The Hills is moving into a fourth season and you'll be pretty busy, but do you think you'll keep up with your singing after The Hills is over?
HM: What do you mean?
LB: Do you see yourself singing for the rest of your life?
HM: Yeah, definitely. This is definitely the career that I want to go down and dedicate myself to. Like right now every day I live and breathe this stuff. Every day I am in the studio. Every day. And if I'm not there I'm in the dance studio. And it is really my passion and really what I am dedicating my life to.
LB: When Season Four airs, are we going to be seeing a lot of that side of you? In the studio and the dance studio?
HM: I don't know; we haven't filmed Season Four yet, so you never know. You never know until it airs anyway. You never know.
