Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale Wants to Launch a Music Career

Lucy Hale's secret is out: the Pretty Little Liars actress wants to become a pop star!

Though the 21-year-old Memphis native got her start singing on the American Idol spinoff American Juniors in 2003, she's spent the last seven years focused on her acting career. But after Hale sang an Eva Cassidy song during Pretty Little Liars' first season, she tells Teen Vogue's February issue she's toying with the idea of becoming a full-fledged musician.

"All I can say is that if I ventured out into that world, it'd be a dream come true. I took guitar a while back, and my heart wasn't in it at the time, but I'm ready to try it again," Hale tells the mag. "I sing in the car, at home -- it's a huge part of my life, especially since I'm from Tennessee. When I'm ready for it, I'm going to dive into it 100 percent."

Hale insists that she isn't just capitalizing on her newfound fame: she's always had musical aspirations.

"I never thought about acting when I lived in Memphis -- actually, pretty much the opposite. I wanted to be a singer," she says. "Someone randomly suggested I audition for a few things. I thought, 'Why not?' And I got a role on [Nickelodeon's] Drake & Josh. It was literally just a sentence, but I was so excited to be an actress."
