She might not be your Barbie girl, but she's definitely a People's Choice Awards nominee!

Music sensation Ava Max is ready for the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards this Sunday night. The pop singer is nominated for The New Artist of 2020 at this year's show. She sat down with E! to dish on all the other incredible music acts nominated this year and who has her vote. First up on her list—Rihanna!

"Oh my God, she's incredible. As an artist, as a creator, as a beauty ambassador," she shared. "I feel like she's just so incredible the way she pulls herself together. For so many years, but in such a classy way. I just love it. She has fun with her style, which I like too."

When it comes to what she's watching, Ava revealed that there is one famous family that she can't get enough of! Of course it's the Kardashians and their E! reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"I love that they're themselves," she explained. "They basically created this whole world of social media. After Paris Hilton, it was the Kardashians. Now social media is big because of them. I think they opened up this whole movement to talk about yourself but also in like a positive way."

Ava was also a big fan of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King, which took the world by storm earlier this year.

"Tiger King was wild when it first came out. I feel like everyone and their moms were watching Tiger King," she joked of the controversial show. "I was kind of hesitant at first when I watched it. It's entertaining but its also kind of crazy, so I'm torn. I don't know whether to love it or hate it."

When it comes to her fellow music artists, Ava has to give credit where credit is due, and she's all about The Weeknd right now.

"I feel like his voice is so soothing. Anytime I hear him on the radio, I feel like this calm energy comes through me, but I also want to party at the same time which is weird," she shared. "The Weeknd is the only person who could do that to me. Make me feel calm but also make me want to party. He's great."

You can party with The Weeknd and Ava too on Sunday while watching the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. to find out if either of them will be presented with a PCAs trophy! Don't forget to check out Ava's debut album Heaven & Hell out now.
