"Glee's" Heather Morris Glams Up For "Teen Vogue"
It’s no secret that Heather Morris aka Britanny S. Pierce is one of our absolute favorite Glee characters. She’s hilarious, a great dancer, and has some of the best, albeit most absurd lines in the show.
Morris sat down with Teen Vogue and told them about all her girlie goodies and idiosyncrasies.

Here’s Heather Morris’ interview with Teen Vogue:
Teen Vogue: “In your pre-Glee days, how was working with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyonce [/lastfm]on her Single Ladies tour as a backup dancer?”
Heather Morris: “We had twelve-hour days of nonstop dancing. It was so cool to go around the world.”
Heather Morris: Adrenaline! Though, I always make sure I get eight hours of sleep because I know that that feeds my energy the next day.
Teen Vogue: How was high school for you?
Heather Morris: Honestly, I didn’t enjoy it. My dad passed away before my freshman year, and it altered how I thought. I was depressed–I didn’t hang out with my friends. I worked through it by dancing.
Teen Vogue: What’s your favorite Brittany S. Pierce one-liner?
Heather Morris: “When I pulled my hamstring, I went to a misogynist.” I think it made people think about whether or not misogynist was actually a word.
Teen Vogue: What would be your dream song to sing on Glee?
Heather Morris: I would die to do “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid! I used to sit on a rock and sing that when I was four. I’ve wanted to perform my entire life. I found a paper I wrote in kindergarten class about what I wanted to be when I grew up–and I wrote “a famous singer”!
Teen Vogue: Tell us about your contest with Flirt!
Heather Morris: I’m looking for someone fun and playful to costar with me in a Flirt! online video.
Teen Vogue: What are your must-have products?
Heather Morris: I like Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner–it’s so light, which is important because my fine hair gets oily. Flirt!’s mascara is insane–I don’t need false lashes when I wear it. Like most dancers, I love lip stains! We hate gloss because hair gets stuck in it. And I like Proactiv as well as Olay wipes, which I use to get off all my makeup.
Teen Vogue: What are your other hobbies?
Heather Morris: Crocheting baby blankets! My mom volunteers at a teen pregnancy support center. One day she handed me a ball of yarn, and I got hooked–knitting is so relaxing. I also bought a camera recently, and my roommate and I are trying to start a production company. We’re finishing up our first short film, which will be on Funnyordie.com. Clearly, I hate having downtime!
