Bea Miller stopped by the Billboard office to help fans get to know a bit more about her as part of the “You Should Know” video series, as she revealed when she began making music, the time she fangirled over the Jonas Brothers, and what inspired her latest song “It’s Not U It’s Me.”
Miller, who was born in Manhattan and grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey, tells Billboard that she got her first guitar when she was 12 years old. “Her name was Charlotte. I named her, I was very excited,” she admits. “That was kind of what started my writing career.”
Asked to recall the time she was the most starstruck, Miller says that when she was eight years old, she met the Jonas Brothers for the very first time. “I actually wrote a song with Nick, so it's kind of funny now. I toured with DNCE, so it's kind of awkward now that I'm like their biggest fan,” she confesses with a laugh.
