The Victorious star wants you to get excited about the show’s soundtrack, and all the fun music on it. Get started with this Q&A, and a free listen to her new song, “Best Friend’s Brother!”
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Victoria Justice over here at Seventeen. She’s bubbly, fun, smart — and don’t forget — majorly talented. We’re going to get to see a little bit more of that talent next week, when the Victorious soundtrack comes out on August 2. Victoria sat down with Seventeen to spill about everything from the music to her crush on — surprise! — a best friend’s brother.
17: What’s your favorite song on the soundtrack?
Victoria Justice: It’s probably between “Freak the Freak Out” and “Best Friend’s Brother”, which is a song that I actually wrote for the show.
17: What’s the story behind “Best Friend’s Brother” — did you ever have a crush on a friend’s brother?
VJ: When I was around 14 years old, in 8th grade, I had this crush on my best friend’s brother. He was two years older than me. It was one of those things where I would go over her house and we would all play Halo 2 together and go swimming in the pool and stuff. I think we both had little crushes on each other, but it never went anywhere. If it had, it would have been really weird. I wouldn’t have been willing to risk my friendship for dating her brother. Friendship is always more important.
17: Do you ever get nervous before you perform?
VJ: I definitely still get a little stressed out and nervous. There’s a lot of pressure going on stage in front of all these people. It really is crazy though, because as soon as I get on stage in front of the crowd all of that goes out the window and all I care about is having fun and entertaining the crowd, and making sure they have a good time.
17: What do you do before you get out there, to calm your nerves?
VJ: I like to just chill and collect my thoughts and conserve my energy. That way when I finally have to get out there and perform I have a burst of energy. I just hang out backstage and breathe a lot.
