In the new issue, Lucy opens up about the brand-new her after she has recovered from an eating disorder and a breakup from ex-boyfriend Chris Zylka, all the while planning her very first album.
On the new Lucy “(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.”
Lucy on getting past 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.”
Lucy on the power of positive friends “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.”
On moving on after splitting from boyfriend of nine-months 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!’”
Lucy talks about her debut album – it’s going to be country! “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.”

As she continues to prepare for her first album, actress/singer Lucy Hale opened up about why she chose to make a country album for her big debut.
During an interview with Access Hollywood, Lucy described herself as “born and bred in Tennessee”, and listened to a bunch of country music growing up.
“Country music to me is the best music in the world. It’s storytelling and it means something and it can make you feel any emotion in the world and it’s just where my heart is,” the brunette beauty explained.
Lucy has been signed with Hollywood Records, working with producer Mark Bright on her new music. Lucy has also been working with Sugarland‘s Kristian Bush on the album, who admitted he was impressed with Lucy’s country side: “I would drive around in the car with her … and she always flips the station to the country station and always sings along louder than the radio. I’m like, ‘How do you know that song? I don’t even know that song. I’ve just heard of (the band) Florida Georgia Line. How did you get that? Did you get an advance copy?’ She just obsessively listens. Nothing creates a better writer or an artist than a great listener.”
Meanwhile, Lucy has kept busy on the set of her ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars, where she plays Aria Montgomery. ”(The album) is something I wanted to do way before ‘Pretty Little Liars’ or anything. I grew up singing, and acting sort of came up along the way. … (Recording) is a lot of weekends, it’s a lot of long nights but I’m so passionate about it … I’m just really excited.”
Lucy is expected to release her album later this year!
Joined by her PLL co-star Tyler Blackburn and the magazine’s publisher Karim Abay, Lucy was on-hand for the launch of the December/January issue which she is featured on the cover.

Lucy even revealed who she’d like A to be! “I want it to be a Bonnie and Clyde thing. Where Aria and Ezra are in it together. Or Spencer and Toby. But something romantic, they’re the bad guys.”
In addition to the return of PLL, Lucy has been hard at work on her first album – which will be country! “It’s absolutely terrifying. You only get one album. You only get one single. You get one shot in music. But I have a million different dreams. Why can’t I go out and try to achieve them all? Who are you to say I can’t?”
