HB’s 5 Star Treatment is a quirky, off-the-wall way to get to know a few of your fave celebs outside of the questions they are usually asked. From breakup remedies to moments of lust, #TeamBeautiful digs deep and gives your fave celebs something to think about with our 5 Star Treatment.

There’s something about the bright-eyed, curly-haired, juicy-lipped cutie, Elle Varner that connects me to her. Other than the various times we’ve run into one another at various industry events and the self-proclaimed nerdiness that she makes look purposely fly. It’s just this familiarity in her personality that’s endearing and draws you in.

And once you’re “in,” that gritty, soulful, funky voice of hers proves that she’s got the staying power to make her a superstar. Elle’s debut album, Perfectly Imperfect couldn’t be more fitting as a self-description. The little girl who grew up in the studio blossomed into a fully-grown artist, ready to devour the music industry with a sweet soul and even sweeter vocals.

Right after her heart-warming performance, Elle met me backstage for a brief chat. She candidly explained that she’s finally getting to a place where she’s not a victim to her stage fright any longer and she’s now able to let herself go on stage and it shows. She was vulnerable and honest and the audience felt every part of her soul as she sang the words to “Refill.”

Check out our quick chat below:

*If I was stranded on a desert island I’d bring…A guitar, my mom and dad. That would be weird after a while. [laughs] A man to procreate with, a guitar and my lucky…


Protection?! I want to make babies! [laughs]

**How do you express your love…Through words and touch.

*** The best way to get over a breakup...writing songs. I feel like honestly, my album was more about how in love I was than how devastated I was from heartbreak. I don’t know if I even tapped into that yet. That might take a while.

**** The one thing that I don’t like about myself…My teeth, my overbite. I would say my forehead, only because mean people try to be like, “Oh you have a big forehead.” How about Sade, Rihanna, Tyra Banks–three of the most beautiful women with big foreheads. I’m in good company!

*****What was your last moment of lust…I was lusting over this guy, probably yesterday. He was just sexy. It was a “Not Tonight” moment.
