Priscilla ReneaPriscilla Renea may be new on the scene, but she's already gotten her first glimpse of celebrity life.

"I was going to this Jermaine Dupri thing in Los Angeles," the 21-year-old singer told us during a recent visit to our New York office. "We pulled up on the red carpet and I was like, 'No, please.' I didn't want to attract attention, and all the paparazzi started running and they were like 'Who are you?!'" Aware that they were hoping to snap A-listers, Renea was reluctant to get in front of the cameras. "Finally I was like, 'You know what, screw it.' So I got out and you heard the crowd go, 'Aww.'"

She may be a relative unknown to the swarms of paparazzi now, but after her impromptu performance for our staff, we're convinced that won't be for very long. The talented young singer-songwriter has been cutting her teeth on YouTube for years, uploading videos and establishing a relationship with fans. "When I started on Youtube I was just doing it for fun," she told us. "Ultimately I did have a goal, like yes, I wanted people to see these videos and hopefully something would come out of it but I never thought it would actually happen."
