Alessia Cara is home in Brampton, Ontario (outside Toronto) rehearsing for her upcoming solo tour (which is here at the Fillmore Detroit October 6th).

We talked about the differences between opening for Coldplay, doing her own tour, and even her encounter with Tory Lanez (who sings “Luv”) – they are from the same hometown.

So, what was the inspiration for her song “Scars To Your Beautiful?”

Turns out it’s the women all around her, many of whom feel pressure to conform to  mass media standards of beauty.

“It was just really bothering me… and I wanted to speak out about it,” she said

Also, we got in a few random listener questions in too!
