PrettyCity sat down with the talented and gorgeous
singer to talk beauty, natch!
Staying in shape is serious business when you’re
a champion roller-skater who trained at The Olympic
Training Center in Colorado Springs. Able to execute
a double axel on wheels, Cole explains that staying
active while having fun is her secret to sporting a
killer body, “I love taking dance classes, jogging,

apart from the legion of bottled-blondes that she’ll
undoubtedly end up being compared to.
But unlike the others, staying true to her roots is
sure to keep this singer, songwriter and performer rolling
along the road to superstardom.
