Ava Max: "Beyonce is my all time favorite performer"

That female empowerment surely comes in part from her mother -- a classically trained singer -- and the big-voiced divas her mom played around the house when Max was growing up. "She would sing a lot of Celine Dion and I would sing Celine Dion with her," Max says of how her early love of singing was fostered. "So that's how I got into the big vocalists like Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, then got into more R&B, the Fugees, and then into pop in the 2000s. That was crazy. Gwen Stefani and all that. I feel like pop and R&B are just my core."
When asked about her favorite concerts she's attended, Max doesn't hesitate to name Queen Bey as her all-time favorite performer. "When I saw Beyoncé, she did a two-hour show singing and dancing -- it was like my mouth just wouldn't close," she says. "I was like, 'OK, I'm drooling,' like, it's so good. Oh my God. No one's better. I'm sorry.
"She's incredible," she adds. "And that hair whip -- when she whips her hair, like, that's a thing. Like, she sings and dances and then her hair is -- I'm like, how? And did you ever see that meme where she like flips her hair and then her braid goes on her shoulder? It looks like it's some type of like creature on her shoulder, and you're like, wait, she did that just by herself. Like she didn't plan that, she just did it. So yes, she's definitely a dream."
