Kathy Beth Terry interview: "Katy Perry has been great to me"

Spare a thought for 13-year-old Kathy Beth Terry. After spending a cosy night in playing Sudoku with her Weenie Babies, she not only found herself at the centre of a house party and grounded indefinitely, but also thrust into the limelight as the star of Katy Perry's music video for her latest single 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)'. Four weeks after her shenanigans were put on display for the world to see, we caught up with her to find out how she's handling her newfound fame.

Are you still friends with Rebecca Black after the party and are you a fan of her song 'Friday'?
"Yeah! Rebecca's got a great sense of style, she's designing my forest princess dress for the next LARP convention. I get so, so excited for her every time 'Friday' comes on the radio! It's nice to finally be able to relate to what getting down on Friday actually means!"

How are you using your newfound popularity?
"Mostly just to connect with new people online that have similar interests. I never knew there were so many people into Sudoku and the solar system like me! I've made a few really great Weenie Baby trades recently as well."

Who are your music heroes and what do you like most about them?
"Hanson and Sugar Ray, because they've both got REALLY cute lead singers! Katy Perry has also been really great to me, performing on stage with her has been so fun!"

What's the weirdest thing you've had stuck in your braces?
"I chewed on a pen one day in history class. The ink tube part got tangled in my braces. Luckily, Dr. Rosenthall was able to remove it, but my mouth was blue for two days!"

Would you consider applying for The X Factor and what would you sing?
"Chumbawamba's 'I get knocked down, but I get up again, you're never going to keep me down'! I'm very accident-prone, so I feel it's pretty appropriate!"

What are your top three style tips when dressing for a party?
"Make your hair REALLY big, wear lots of neon colours and swap one of your shoes with a friend and wear a mis-matched pair - all these things are guaranteed to get you noticed!"

When is your next party and can we come?
"Due to the whole 'grounded for the next 5 years' thing, I'm laying low on having a lot of people over for a while. The next party will be online, that way you can all come!"
