Cover Story / Interview Piper Rockelle
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am 13, and I love making videos, recording music, and creating fun content with my friends.
How did you become a social media personality?
I made videos on the Musical.ly app and things just kind of took off. I participated in pageants when I was younger, and I have always loved to dance.
What has been the best part of being a content creator?
Touching the lives of the fans (my BBYS)and giving them fun content to brighten their lives. I’ve become friends with so many great people through my content.
What is the worst part of being a content creator?
Ugh, well, I guess it’s that you do sometimes get used by people that aren’t really your friends and it really hurts me. I am so thankful to be surrounded by my squad now. They are all genuine friends. I love them!
Did you have a moment when you knew this was going to change your life?
I think it was when my mom and I moved to LA. It was hard to leave our family in Georgia, but we both just knew this new life we were making would change everything.
Who are some of the people you love watching?
I love Addison Rae, Wengie, and Lilly Singh
Who would you love to collaborate with?
Addison Rae for sure! And I would love to work with Jennifer Aniston some day!
What have you learned about yourself this past year?
I am resilient. I know I am only 13, but I have been through a lot, and I learned that though hurt and disappointment is hard to live through, it taught me lessons that help me get right back up and keep going.
What are some of your hobbies or interests that people don't know about?
This isn’t a secret, and it’s definitely my passion...cat rescue! My mom and I have rescued over 500 cats already and we don’t plan to stop! We have a catuary in our home and we help rescue and get homes for cats whenever we can.
Tell us about "Treat Myself" and your music journey so far.
Treat Myself was really my first single. I had a blast creating the song and the music video and it helped inspire me to then release Sidewalk, BBY...I and my most recent release, Butterflies. I am so excited to FINALLY get back out on tour later this year and have the opportunity to perform some of my music live!!!
Is there new music coming soon?
Yes I am working on a song now that deals with bullying, and I hope to release it soon! I am always working on new music.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
Well, I’ll be 18 and I hope I will still be entertaining people, making music, touring, moving over to TV or movies maybe? And DEFINITELY still rescuing
