Skylar Grey Performs "Wear Me Out" and Talks "Don't Look Down" Album and Tour

The day before her "Don't Look Down" solo album launched and 2013 tour kicked off, singer/songwriter Skylar Grey joined us in the What's Trending studio to perform her original song, "Wear Me Out," and take fan questions about creating the new record.

"It's such an amazing feeling to finally have pushed this baby out," she said of the album. "I've been working on this album for three years. I've been holding onto this for so long. Now everybody can hear it."

She added, "I'm finally proud of every single song on the album. If I'd put it out a year ago like I was supposed to, I wouldn't have been as proud of every song. So I'm glad I waited."

And fans can't help but notice that the tone of the songs is quite rebellious. When asked about her inner rebel, Grey says, "I think as I get older, it gets more rebellious. As a kid you feel like you have to rebel, but I feel more rebellious now."

For those interested in her hat, it's from her friend's YUMS brand, with which she's doing an Instagram contest, for a chance to win a prize package!
