We’ve all been digging Kat Graham’s sexy, girl-power anthem “Put Your Graffiti on Me” lately, and we couldn’t help but picture what would happen if the song were blasting at one of those lavish Mystic Falls events on The Vampire Diaries. How much would you love seeing an Original booty popping? Well, that actually happened. Off-camera, unfortunately.
“We got a sneak peek of the video ahead of time, so Claire Holt [Rebekah] and myself definitely spent the remainder of the day going ‘tag me’ and making the little cowbell [sound],” Candice Accola, a.k.a. “Vampire Barbie” Caroline Forbes, told us on the red carpet of the Elle Women in Music Awards. Accola is a singer too, but lately she’s been showing off her skills to a more intimate audience.
“I’m in a ’90s cover band with a bunch of the crew members, and we played our wrap party,” she said. We’re not sure what they played, but she did say that to prepare she downloaded Kriss Kross’ “Jump,” Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.” and Weezer’s “El Scorcho.”
“It was a blast,” she said. “We did it season one too, it was ’80s themed, to liven spirits up at the end of the season.”
We’re sure she was great, but even if it wasn’t, it sounds like the TVD peeps would love it anyway.
“We are a family down there, not just the cast but the crew and the writers and production team as well,” Accola said. “I like to call it the traveling circus that doesn’t travel, because most of us including the crew relocated to Atlanta, so we’re kind of all each other has. We have to be supportive.”
You have us, too, Candice! And we definitely support this ’20s look she’s sporting in episode 20.
