Kristyn Burtt is an LA-based entertainment reporter who has covered everything from 'Dancing With the Stars' to the Oscars. If she’s not on the red carpet, she’s at home in yoga pants watching Netflix and eating potato chips.

She loves lip gloss, manicotti and Prince

Singer Mya has conquered the stage, screen and even Dancing With the Stars. SheKnows got the inside scoop on some of her favorite things.

Mya started her career as a hip-hop dancer on BET's Teen Summit. By the time she was 19 years old, she had a hit record with musical artist Sisqó called "It's All About Me." She even went on to win a Grammy Award with Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim and P!nk for their collaboration on the remake of "Lady Marmalade" from the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack.

She has a new EP called Sweet 16, which is a tribute to the 16 years she'd been in the music industry when she released her first album back in 1998. Her longevity speaks volumes about her incredible talent.

SheKnows sat down with the talented R&B singer to learn more about what she loves, from lip gloss to manicotti.
