Unlike many of the other Disney alum, Chelsea Kane does not have an alternative career as a singer. Despite a turn on "Dancing with the Stars," there's not a big connection between Kane and music at all. But on this weekend's "Drop Dead Diva" finale, Kane will get to unleash her inner pop star.
Kane plays a pop star on TV
In a recent conference call interview, Kane confessed, "This was so much fun to play a little country singer. I grew up singing and doing theater and I'm a huge fan of the Taylor Swifts and Carrie Underwoods of the world. And, of course, I don't consider myself a singer, so to get thrown into this pop star character was a lot of fun."
Whichever celeb Kane might be turning to for inspiration, she'll be playing Paige McBride, a singer charged with the murder of her ex-boyfriend. But the case is complicated, as most "Diva" cases are known to be. It seems McBride's beau was murdered in the exact same fashion she'd written about in one of her songs.
Many pop stars use song to express their deepest secrets
This isn't a totally far-fetched concept. After all, people are constantly analyzing songs for clues about celebrities real life affairs. Just recently the Internet has been buzzing over the inspiration for Taylor Swift's latest single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Is it about Jake Gyllenhaal or John Mayer many wonder? And it seems that Kanye West was expressing his secret love of Kim Kardashian as far back as 2009 in the tune "Knock You Down."
And Kane certainly has been surrounded by her fair share of pop stars with veiled secrets in their tracks during the course of her career. After all, she spent two seasons playing Stella Malone on "Jonas," so she got to spend time with famous siblings - Kevin, Joe and Nick.
The Jonas Brothers wrote songs about their real life loves
She recounted, "Working with the Jonas Brothers at the very beginning of my career was fascinating because they were surrounded by fanatics. And there were even some cases where there were songs written about them and they would write songs about their love life. So it was really interesting to watch the yearbook of our friends, who we ran around with, writing all these pop songs about each other and decoding which one was about who."
Find out if Kane's character is guilty of anything more than spilling a few secrets when the "Drop Dead Diva" finale airs on Sunday, September 9 at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. Central on Lifetime.
