Elizabeth Gillies, 'Victorious' Star, On Playing The Bad Girl And Being The Nice Girl Liz Gillies may play mean girl Jade West on Victorious, but in real life, the 19-year-old is sweet as can be. Offscreen, she's besties with her cast-mates (did you know she co-starred in the Broadway musical 13 alongside Ariana Grande?) and she loves to hang out on YouTube with her fans, where she frequently posts covers of her favorite songs. Liz gave me the scoop on how she deals with real-life mean girls, her upcoming album and which celeb's closet she'd love to raid.

HuffPost: What's it like playing Jade on Victorious?

LG: It's wonderful. I love playing Jade. I always say she's not so much the "mean" girl, but the "bad" girl in so many ways. She has a lot of human qualities to her -- she's not just completely sociopathic. She's sweet with her boyfriend. It's nice to play a character with some depth.

How do you deal with mean girls in your own life?

If someone's being less than courteous to you, I don't think you need to pay any attention to them.

Jade may be the bad girl on-screen, but off-screen, you've shown support for the anti-bullying movement and attended the premiere of Bully. What makes this an important issue for you?

I had a group of girlfriends who were mean girls and thought bullying would make them popular. I don't like when people say that we can put an end to it -- I don't think it's ever going to stop. I don't think that's a healthy way to look at it. I think it's more important to teach kids how to deal with it by finding extra-curricular activities or something artistic so they can express themselves and find a creative outlet for their anger.

On a lighter note, you sing covers on YouTube and you've sung on the Victorious soundtrack. Do you have any plans to put out an original album?

Yeah, I do. I'm working on it now. It's alternative rock. I love a lot of older rock music, so this is kind of an incorporation of that with some more modern elements. It's fun -- I can't wait for people to see it when it comes out....
