Haley Reinhart Craves Comfort Food, ’90s Toons & Beatles Everything: Favorites

Erika Brooks Adickman | May 18, 2012 11:47 am

Favorites is our recurring video series on the personal preferences of the pop artists who inspire us. Because the artists we love love stuff too.

Here’s what you probably didn’t know about Haley Reinhart: The 21-year-old American Idol Season 10 alumna loves herself some family time. We only chatted for a bit, but in practically every question we asked, the “Free” singer managed to mention a sweet childhood memory involving her mom and pops, or good ol’ home sweet home.

The Chicago native has a warm spot in her heart — make that, her belly — for the city’s famed deep-dish pizza, as well the Historic Navy Pier’s Great Ferris Wheel. But that doesn’t mean the girl doesn’t travel. These days the sun-loving blonde likes to get down poolside, drinking Jack & Cokes, in L.A. And if her picks for favorite album are any indication, she’s probably spinning The Beatles while she soaks up Vitamin D.

Hear Haley confess even more of her favorite things in the video above, and don’t forget to pick up her debut album, Listen Up!, when it drops on May 22.
