When Ryan asked the rapper if he was thirsty, Wiz responded by saying, “I tried to take a pic with Demi, she wasn’t fucking with it.” Demi tried to defend herself, but Wiz wasn’t having it.

Alessia Cara Sits Down With Ryan Seacrest, Performs “Here” And Covers Shawn Mendes’ “Sitches”

Alessia Cara Ryan SeacrestYesterday, Alessia Cara spoke with Ryan Seacrest about her career, revealing how she went from making videos in her bedroom to hitting the Billboard charts. In the interview, the singer mentions in particular her cover of Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” as an important career milestone. That cover was featured on Ryan’s website a few years back, and the attention that it got there marked the beginning of Alessia’s videos getting a wider audience.

Alessia goes on to say that she had been posting videos of her covers since she was 13 years old, but that the view counts didn’t start to rise until after the initial exposure that her Justin Timberlake cover received on Ryan’s site. However, Alessia identifies her subsequent cover of The Neighborhood’s “Sweater Weather” as the point when she began to realize that something bigger was happening.

Alessia also discusses her recently aired interview with Taylor Swift. Alessia admits that she got more than she expected when she first thought to approach Taylor “trying to get someone to interview me about my album.” Not only did Taylor agree to eventually do the interview, but she also invited Alessia to join her on stage.

At the end of her appearance, Alessia sang her hit single “Here,” as well as a cover of Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches.”

Check out the interview and Alessia’s performance below.
