Last time we heard from Bella Thorne, she was doing the “Harlem Shake” on the Get Schooled Victory Tour. We recently caught up with the “Shake It Up” actress, who magically manages to split her time between starring in a hit TV show, encouraging teens to stay in school, educating fans on the world water crisis and texting up a storm.
And while it was recently announced that after three seasons, “Shake It Up” is going to get canceled (Wah!) our favorite ginger is not letting that get her down. She’s on board to star in an upcoming horror film, “Home Invasion,” and she recently signed up to pen three YA novels! See what else is on her mind lately, from dating deal-breakers to causes she really cares about!

Like most girls, Bella is so not into guys who don’t text back. It’s hard to imagine any guy who wouldn’t text her incessantly, but we feel ya, girl! If she ever encounters boys who don’t volunteer, Bella isn’t afraid to shake ‘em up until they do things her way. “If he wasn’t volunteering for stuff, I’d be like, ‘No! You’re gonna come with me, and you’re gonna volunteer so that they have one extra person, because one extra person can do so much.'”

Bella is a spokesperson for The Thirst Project, an org that raises awareness about the global water crisis and brings water to those who need it most. 780 million people in the world lack access to clean drinking water, and 3.4 million will die of water-related illnesses this year alone. That’s almost as many people as in the entire city of Los Angeles! Bella loves lending her voice to The Thirst Project, but she’s ready to get hands on. “Now I actually want to go to Uganda and help build a well,” she says. “I can lend my voice to all of these charities, but I just wanna really do something — like really do it!”
