Behind-the-Scenes of Victoria Justice's Latina Magazine Cover Shoot

Victoria Justice Latina October 2012 cover shoot video

Get an insider look at how Victoria Justice transformed into our cover model for the October 2012 issue, on newsstands September 11. The talented actress and singer chats about her favorite Latina icon, her daring dress for the shoot, and more!

"I think Latina magazine is really important to the Latin community - I think it represents Latin culture and I feel like Latina magazine highlights Latin people in a really nice way and I'm happy to be here," Victoria told us upon arriving at the shoot.  

When asked about her Latina role model, Victoria shared, "I'm a big J.Lo fan - mainly because she's followed the path I want to take." 

Rightly so, Victoria is already headed down J.Lo's path being crowned the cover star of our Young Hollywood issue. So what does Vic think sets her and her Young Hollywood companions apart? "I feel like today's pack of young Hollywood stars are different because they're more accessible. Things like Twitter and Facebook and YouTube - I feel like we're constantly putting ourselves out there to the world."

Finally, we asked Victoria to share her favorite Latin tradition, to which she told us, "The one big tradition that I follow is that every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken in my house - it's my favorite day of the week because of that!"
