But I’ve always looked up to my sister [Haylie Duff]. She’s three years older than me and we’re like best friends. She’s never done anything totally outlandish and we’ve always been really close to my parents and she’s just been a really good role model for me to look up to. She’s really cool, she wrote two songs on my album and she’s really talented! And I love her and I miss her! (Laughs) I also love Dido and Nelly Furtado and people who are really into their music like that. And I love Renee Zellweger.”
