Hot on the heels of releasing her excellent brand new EP, Nemesis, we caught up with Bridgit Mendler to get to know the former Disney Channel star and rising alt-pop artist a little better.

Above, the "Atlantis" singer opens up about how she navigates heartbreak, who her favorite vocalist is, how acting and music compare, the importance of inspiring young people to fight for their rights and more.

Nemesis was released on November 18 via Black Box Records. Listen to the EP on Spotify and watch Bridgit's video for new single "Do You Miss Me At All," below:
