Former ‘Victorious’ star performs at Pier Six Pavilion with Big Time Rush on Friday

At 20, Victoria Justice has money, fame and fans, thanks to a starring role on the Nickelodeon sitcom “Victorious.” But the Florida native still doesn’t have her driver’s license, a result of spending her teen years focused on work.

“I’ve been on Nickelodeon since I was 12,” Justice, who also acted on “Zoey 101,” said. “Pretty much all of my teenage years have been spent on that network. I’m really curious to see what’s next for me.”

Recently, Justice‘s focus has turned from TV (“Victorious” aired its series finale in February) to music. While Justice, who performs at Pier Six Pavilion on Friday, recorded songs for three “Victorious” soundtracks, she released her first song separate from the kid-brand last month.

Gold,” the first single from Justice’s forthcoming debut album, is a song about a friendship that should be more romantic. Although she didn’t write the song, Justice says the lyrics reflect her attitudes on dating.

“You have to establish a good friendship and let it blossom into something more,” she said.

The song is forward (“If you want me like I want you then man up and make your move,” goes the chorus) but far from racy. As is often the case with stars who grew up in front of the camera, Justice says the material on her new album (which does not have a release date) is more mature than “Victorious” songs but “not anything risque or scandalous.”

“I take pride in the fact that people consider me to be a good role model. I’m happy to do that,” Justice said. “I’m not looking to shock anyone or go crazy with my solo music. That’s not who I am anyway. At the end of the day, I’m making music for me and I hope people like it.”

Justice answers questions like someone who has had plenty of media training. Throughout our talk, she replied in broad terms that revealed little insight into the personality behind the popular Victoria Justice brand. When asked why “Gold” was the right first single, Justice didn’t have a passionate backstory for the song.

“Honestly, I was kind of torn between ‘Gold’ and this other song I wrote called ‘Shake,’” she said. “I was going back and forth with my label about that. I guess we all got on the same page about ‘Gold.’ I don’t know. It’s a fun, pop summer jam and my label really believed in the song.”

Justice, who has writing credits on “Victorious” soundtracks, says “Gold” is the only song on the album that she didn’t have a hand in writing. She views this album as a way of expressing herself through different sounds. It will fall under the category of pop, Justice says, but the album will have elements of other genres she enjoys. One song has a singer-songwriter vibe, she says, while “Gold” has a hip-hop influence.

“I do enjoy the bridge [of 'Gold'] because I get a little gangsta with it,” Justice said with a laugh.

With a tour ending next month and no acting job to return to, Justice plans to focus on being “a normal person for a little bit, not so crazy and hectic” this fall. Afterward, she’ll return to the studio to continue work on her album. (Justice says she’s already worked with Toronto pop hitmakers The Messengers.) She also plans on reading scripts to find her next acting project. As an actress and singer, many possibilities remain open to Justice, which could be the most thrilling aspect of all to her.

“It’s kind of an open book right now, which is exciting,” she said.

At age 20 Victoria Justice has the kind of resume most artists can only dream of in a lifetime. In addition to TV and film, she can now add “successful touring artist” to the list.

There’s no shortage of singers attempting the leap from tween-TV stardom to touring musician, at varying levels of success. But Justice and her team, including Jonathan Shank of Red Light Management, are taking a pragmatic approach to develop a music career for the long haul.

She’s got a high-profile gig for the summer, co-billed on an amphitheatre tour with Big Time Rush. But her one-off dates prior to that outing show she can hold her own, with sellouts at Philadelphia’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts and Cape Cod Melody Tent in Massachusetts.

Shank acknowledges it can be a challenge building a music career for an artist well-established from years of work in television, with shows like “Zoey 101” and “Victorious” under her belt. But he’s determined to continue the momentum Justice is building on the music stage.

“The focus has been on the music since [“Victorious”] went off the air. So certainly going forward will be a juggling act between TV, film and music,” Shank told Pollstar. “We have to figure out a way to carry the fan base along and make the mainstream aware of who she is as an artist. She’s an amazing vocalist and performer. She’s a breath of fresh air for a lot of young adults and parents alike.”

In addition to her singing and acting talent, Justice is flexing her chops as a songwriter as well. Her single, “Gold,” is currently climbing the charts and Justice expects to release a debut album early next year.

“The strategy really is to continue to build her social media presence, continue to have her out there in the touring market and figure out an entry point at radio for her next single,” Shank said, adding there will be more headlining dates and international touring later in the year.

Victoria Justice rose to tween idol status after starring roles in Nickelodeon shows like Zoey 101 and Victorious, honing her singing chops on the show’s soundtracks. Last month, the 20-year-old Florida native released her debut solo single, the uber-catchy pop track “Gold.” Fuse caught up with the singer-actress, who’s currently on tour with fellow Nick stars Big Time Rush, to talk about her debut record.

“I’ve written a few songs about boys, relationships and love,” she says. “I definitely draw from real-life experiences, any emotion that I’m feeling that I want to get out there. I’m still working on it, but I’ve written a lot of songs that I’m super excited and super proud of.”

This summer, a new batch of pop princesses is out to claim their rightful places among some of the more-established chart queens in the genre like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. Two of the biggest contenders happen to be graduates from the school of “Victorious.”

After the Nick sitcom wrapped up earlier this year, both Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande set off to record debut albums. Justice explained to MTV News what it was about the series that spurred so much musical creativity from the two multi-hyphenate performers.

“We’re all very musical people, so I think it was just natural for us to want to put out our own music,” Justice said. “And ‘Victorious’ was great practice for me. I had never really sung professionally until ‘Victorious,’ so it was great experience. It was great practice being in the studio, performing on the show, and it was just a lot of fun.

“And I actually wrote three songs that ended up on the show, which was very cool,” she explained. “So that was really exciting. I think it really just set me up in the right way to be able to do both [acting and singing]. I’m passionate about both.”

Justice just dropped her video for “Gold,” serving as a tease for her own album, set to debut later this year. She said that with her teen-queen days behind her, she’s ready to make a more grownup statement and that she’s been given a lot of freedom to do so. “I’m in creative control. I’m steering the ship,” she shared.

“I want it to be a little more mature. I’m 20 years old now, so I’ve grown a lot as a songwriter, as well,” she added. “I think my album is definitely going to be pop. I’m kind of playing around with different types of pop. ‘Gold’ is more mainstream pop, and I wrote another song that I’m super excited about, and it’s one of my favorites that I’ve ever written … I’m just exploring with a bunch of different sounds. It’s been really fun getting to write most of my music.”

That song, the name of which she didn’t want to reveal just yet, is “more singer/songwriter-y pop.” “It’s a song that I wrote for a boy, and that’s kind of a Bruno Mars-ish vibe,” she explained. “It’s kind of in the vein of a ‘Just the Way You Are,’ but it’s a girl singing it to a guy. But it’s a really, really fun, catchy song, and as soon as you hear it, you want to snap your fingers and dance and automatically makes you happy. It’s really, really upbeat.”

If the internet rumors are to be believed, Victoria Justice is set to move to “Ravenswood” later this fall when the “Pretty Little Liars” spin-off makes its debut. In fact, the project even landed a spot on her IMDb page. However, according to the actress/singer, her bags aren’t packed, and she has no plans to board a flight to the highly anticipated ABC Family soap.

“I’m not. I’m actually not,” she told MTV News of the reported role. “I don’t know. I was in talks for it, but it ended up not working out for whatever reason. I think it’s a great project, and I wish them luck with it, but I’m not attached.”

Instead, Victoria is focused on her debut album, set for release later this year. She just dropped her single “Gold,” and enlisted the help of eye candy Colton Haynes to play her boy toy in the video. But just because she has music on the brain doesn’t mean she’s taking an extended leave from her other gig as an actress.

“I love acting. I love it. I’d love to do more movies. I’m also open to doing a TV show again,” she said. (Her stint on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” wrapped up earlier this year.) “It’s just something I want to be really passionate about. I’m not sure when that right project is going to come around. When it does, it’ll be awesome.”

Former ‘Victorious’ star tells MTV News she’s ‘very honored’ to have Haynes in video for ‘edgier’ single ‘Gold.’

Former ‘Victorious‘ star tells MTV News she’s ‘very honored’ to have Haynes in video for ‘edgier’ single ‘Gold.’

Victoria Justice knew that when she heard her latest single she had some pop-music gold on her hands. The track, aptly titled “Gold,” perfectly encapsulates the empowering message the singer/actress is hoping to spread on her in-the-works debut album, set for release later this year.

“From the moment I heard it, I just thought it was a really fun, catchy pop song, and I also liked how it came from a place of female empowerment,” she told MTV News about the song, on which the former “Victorious” star tells her crush to “man up” because she’s gold and he should make a move.

She continued, “I’m all about girl power, so that was important for me. I just thought it would be perfect as a summer release. It’s a lot of fun to perform live … For me, I’m not coming from a place of being cocky, it’s more female empowerment.”

As Justice preps her post-”Victorious” music career, she feels this track not only sets the tone for her album, but has just enough mass appeal to keep all of her fans listening. “I think it’s a song that appeals to all ages. And it is, like, a little bit edgier and a little more mature, but not anything that was going to turn off younger fans as well,” she said.

She also shows off a sassier, flirtier side in the video, which she dropped last Friday. It features “Teen Wolf” and “Arrow” star Colton Haynes as her love interest. Justice, however, has a more colorful way of describing his role in the clip.

“I love Colton. He’s such a sweetheart. I met him when I was 15. We were both auditioning for a Nickelodeon original movie and we both kind of kept in touch over the years. And I just think he’s obviously super good-looking, ridiculously good-looking, but he’s also such a genuine, nice person and I really just enjoy hanging with him,” she said. “We were joking about the fact that he had done two other music videos [My Chemical Romance's "I Don't Love You" and Leona Lewis' "Trouble"] before, so he’s a three-time video ho. So I was very honored to have him as my video ho. I think he rocked it!”

Also rocking it in the clip is Justice‘s wardrobe, which includes flirty dresses and even one gangsta chic ensemble, which tops Justice‘s list. “I mean, the wardrobe was really important to me. I’m super passionate about fashion and clothes, so that was one of the most fun parts of the video. I just wanted it to be girly and fun. One of my favorite sections is when I do the rap breakdown and that’s a little bit of a sexier look,” she said. “I think all around I wanted the feel of the wardrobe to be a little bit more mature, a little bit sexier.”

Coming off her run on the Nickelodeon TV series ‘Victorious,’ the singer/actress is working on her first solo album and touring this summer with fellow Nick stars Big Time Rush.

School’s out for Victoria Justice, and for the singer/actress, “Summer Break” means touring with fellow Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush.

“It’s definitely a really exciting, important time of my life. I try not to take any moment for granted. You know, I’m definitely going to be taking lots of pictures on tour and tweeting,” Justice said in a recent phone interview from her home in Los Angeles. “I’m super-grateful for the position that I’m in right now, and I’m grateful that I get to do what I love. I feel incredibly lucky.”

On Sunday, the “Summer Break Tour” is bringing Justice and Big Time Rush to Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena.

For many of her fans, Justice has grown up with them right before their eyes. The Hollywood, Fla., native started her acting career a decade ago and within a couple of years landed a supporting role on the Nickelodeon series “Zoey 101.” She moved up to Nick leading lady status with “Victorious,” playing an aspiring singer navigating life at a Hollywood performing arts high school.

“This tour to me is like my final hurrah for ‘Victorious,’ and I just want to thank all the fans for being there for me and for the show. But at the same time, it’s like we’re introducing them to and letting them hear my new music. Hopefully, they’ll come along on this journey with me,” Justice said.

“I’m 20 years old now and I’m like in creative control of this part of my life, which is very exciting. It’s a bit like a reintroduction of myself because I kind of am in this transitional phase.”

The cable network surprised and dismayed many viewers when it announced last summer that the musical sitcom would not be renewed for a fourth season. In March, “Victorious” won the Favorite TV Show prize at the fan-voted Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards anyway.

“And I cried. I cry every time. I cried this year, I cried the last year. It’s just always going to happen,” Justice said laughing.

“The fans are incredible and they kept the show going and they were just so supportive. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to give them like a big finale, but it’s also kind of nice at the same time to go out on top and to leave people wanting more.”

Justice isn’t leaving devotees who have grown to adore her big voice and bubbly songs wanting for new music. Following two successful “Victorious” soundtracks — singles from the show have sold more than 3 million total tracks and the infectious song “Freak the Freak Out” has been certified gold — she is working on her first solo album, which she hopes to release late this year or early next year.
