Aidin Vaziri | Malibu beach bum Colbie Caillat was working in a tanning salon three years ago when, thanks to a little help from MySpace, her laidback single “Bubbly” turned her into a big-time pop star. Now the 24-year-old Jennifer Aniston look-alike is back with her second album, the chart-topping “Breakthrough,” a little better prepared for the madness that comes with writing songs that inspire thousands of people to sing along every time she takes the stage.
Q: According to your latest Twitter update, you’re supposed to be skydiving right now.
A: I’m supposed to go tomorrow.
Q: It’s your first time skydiving. Are you terrified?
A: No, I’m not. My friends are. They keep wussing out, but I’m so excited I can’t wait.
Q: Living close to the beach I would think it’s something you do every weekend, or is that not a good idea with the sharks and mean dolphins and everything?
A: Actually, you can’t skydive close to the ocean. You have to go two hours inland so you’re over the mountains.
Q: Are you going to do it naked?
A: Um, no.
Q: Why not? You might as well go all out.
