Bea Miller Brings Some Fresh 'Young Blood' to Yahoo
When we last saw Bea Miller (known as the more formal "Beatrice" at the time), she was sobbing her little eyes out on a Thanksgiving-night elimination episode of The X Factor Season 2. (Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever.) But now, a little less than two years later, Bea finds herself with much to be thankful for.
Now a 15-year-old Instagram sensation and budding pop-rock star, the more grown-up but sassy-as-ever Bea is signed to Hollywood Records, in conjunction with Simon Cowell's Syco label. Her debut EP Young Blood just went to #2 on the iTunes Pop Charts and #64 on the Billboard 200, and with a full album forthcoming, the future is looking bright for the artist formerly known as Beatrice.
Citing hard-charging influences like Nirvana and Taylor Momsen's Pretty Reckless as influences, Bea Miller isn't your typical reality-show singer or child star, but that's what makes her so awesome. Bea recently stopped by Yahoo Music, sporting an ice-blonde choppy bob, grungy plaid, and badass Doc Martens, and she rocked for us, acoustic-style. And she proved she really does have the "X factor," even if it won't be long before she's made a name for herself outside of Simon Cowell's old show.
