Haley Reinhart reddit AMA June 4th, 2018
I thought this was posted somewhere, but I guess not, Haley's having her second reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) tomorrow 4pm Pacific time.

Don't wait until the last minute because Reddit's password recovery didn't work for me, I still haven't received the email to change my password over a week later, so don't wait to make sure you have a working password.

It looks like a thing that reddit AMA's do, the celebrity shares a photo of them to prove it's actually them who's going to answer the AMA

RE: Haley Reinhart reddit AMA June 4th, 2018
I'll be there.

for what it's worth, Reddit gets a really unfair bad reputation in the press because of a small subsegment of it's users related to reactionary right politics.

There are also reactionary left politics but neither of those tell the value of the place.

I lost 60lbs last year via support at the r/keto forum

I got in great physical shape with support from their Body Weigh Fitness forum

https://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/


There are forums on vintage furniture , jokes etc

MODERATION : each forum gets moderated 2 ways - Each forum's community makes it's own rules for decorum - some are the trashy trolling you might read of but those are on subjects you do not need to go at all

1) Voting system by users promotes comments voted up to the top (although the threading system will let people try to glom on, even within that next tier the better ones rise up - Down-voted comments get hidden by default unless a users has that system turned off
2) Topics are run by individuals that create them(not reddit the business) and usually they appoint other people as co-moderators . Active forum moderators will delete "low effort" posts or off topic comments depending on the level of discussion they expect. The different forums will often have special threads of the day for more gossipy questions.. although each forum has different standards.
3) Flagging.. like all forums for the most offensive stuff reddit itself might step in but that is the last resort and generally they won't do much of it if people go off to their own corners - you might find some really offensive stuff if you went to the wrong place but it doesn't take long to figure out you're on a bad topic and "unsubscribe" from it if you somehow accidentally got subscribed.

forums about Jokes and Funny or WhatCouldGoWrong are filled with snarky puns and one liners but even those get policed by

But forums like r/history and r/philosophy and many others delete even clean jokes or opinion that isn't backed up with at least some attempt at sharing useful information and references - or if not deleted they just get voted down and hidden.

https://www.reddit.com/r/history/ hiostoyr has 13 million readers and thousands of active ones with really good exchanges on book titles and concise sharing of past connected events

there are forums on many computer languages and technical skills like woodworking etc



On a thing like a Pop Music AMA it might be in between, you might see some snarky comments but JUST vote them down .. they get hidden unlike YouTube where the trolls get shown even higher because of responses

The moderators in pop culture thing probably won't go around deleting posts unless they are openly obscene, (i.e. you might see a couple dumb blond jokes -survive ) but just ignore the stupid ones and if you make a good point you'll see you get 10x the up-votes as the rude person.

Upvote good questions and they will rise to the top and bury the bad ones.. taking the high road keeps most of the forums at the site pretty clean and polite (outside of some questionable puns)

Two of my questions Haley answered:

Quote:haleyobsession
Hi Haley! Last Kiss Goodbye has us all excited for your next album! Do you think HR4 will be a mixture of covers + originals like WTS? was, or are you looking to put out all original music?

Quote:Haley
HEY First questionnaire! Hoping to have a majority of the songs be original. Make my mark! Wink
----

Quote:2Addicted2Haley
You commented on Maddie Poppe's instagram about how you thought she deserves to win. Did you actually keep up with the current season of Idol and which was one of your favorites from Maddie?

Quote:Haley
If I'm not touring/out on the road, I enjoy watching idol, always have! Smile Loved Brand New Key, one of my fav tunes along with God Only Know's... Which is my Fav Love song & I want it played at my wedding one day hehe
----

Quote:KlumSteve
Have you ever heard directly or indirectly that Paul McCartney is aware of your appreciation for the Beatles and that he respects the quality of your songs & songwriting?

Quote:Haley
Wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'...!!! Hopefully one of these years. BUT, I did connect with Geoff Emerick.... Engineer for many of their albums (circa '66 thru '69)

He heard my version of Oh! Darlin... loved it and said Paul would too, then proceeded to tell me the story of how Paul and them recorded it!!

----

Quote:trockyroad
Hi Haley!

As a singer/songwriter, what usually comes to you first or inspires a song; a catchy song title, a melody, or actual lyrical content?

I guess a second part to that would be; how do you know when a song is meant for you to keep, or that it is one that you want to shop around to other artists? And are there any songs that you've had go to other artists that you helped write that you wish you would've kept for yourself?

Much love and good vibes. - TRock

Quote:Haley
Melody has always come first for me... I feel like it inspires the rest of the material. But there have been times where I've started with a title in mind... for ex: Check Please! Wink
----

Quote:Reinharted4life 6 points 3 hours ago
Do you have any plans on releasing your cover of "(I've Had) The Time of My Life"... maybe including it on your upcoming album? It's sooo good Haley! Please Smile

Quote:Haley
I'm tempted to throw it on my next album.... Maybe you guys can convince me Wink
----

Quote:zach23456
What has been your favorite album to work on thus far? Mine is Better. I think it was really genre defying and a true masterpiece. It felt like you were inventing your own genres and the songwriting was top-notch.

Quote:Haley
I appreciate that mister! Better is indeed my baby, which I crafted ever so lovingly haha...

Do you have any plans on re-recording "Oh Holy Night". Your version is the best out there!

Quote:Haley
Thank you! I'd love to put out a Christmas album one of these years..! Keep hounding me and it'll happen haha Wink

Quote:Jcld1029
Hi Haley! This question has been on my mind for a few weeks so I’m glad I get a chance to ask:

Is there a specific story or narrative you constructed on What’s That’s Sound? I recently noticed that the track list could be a way of conveying a journey of some sort. “Let’s Start” at the beginning,

“For What It’s Worth”- the narrator sees the chaos/disorder in their world

“The Letter” featured the sound of an airplane at the end, they’re leaving to escape said chaos

“Can’t Find My Way Home” is like the narrator being lost, maybe in life

“White Rabbit”- the psychedelic things the narrator sees on the journey

“Somewhere In Between”- the narrator being caught between their two worlds

“Bring The Love Back Home”- maybe deciding what to change about themselves when they get back home

“These Boots Are Made for Walkin’”- the narrator returns home more confidently?

I don’t know, I’m just spitballin’ here. But I’m dying to know what was your thinking behind the order of the track list.

Love your music. Thanks!

Quote:Haley
Wow! I love your perspective. And that's what it's all about... interpreting music with your own unique imagination. I have connected a few of these dots myself yes, but I also like to arrange a soundtrack by the song keys... meaning, how each song flows or transitions into another. For instance, I sing a note at the end of Bring The Love Back Home which matched quite nicely to the Time of the season as well as These Boots (both in the Key of G).

Quote:Trinidadhalien
Hi Haley Reinhart. First of all you are the queen of vocals! Would you be sharing a video or a clip or can you give us some vocal warm up tips that you do? I have listened to if not all of your live performances posted online and you are never of key or off in pitch

Quote:Haley
You are too sweet! I do some warm ups... (not as many as I should) but when I do, I sound like a mermaid summoning a pirate to the sea..!
----

Quote:siemsw
Haley! So awesome you’re doing this Smile

I have seen the Extra gum add EVERYWHERE! What has been your reaction to its success and your cover getting all this acclaim all these years?

Quote:Haley
It'd such a dream come true for me... And I never saw it comin'. It's lit a dream senecio to have a song get picked up at radio because of a commercials success, along with the thousands of Shazam's and calls requesting my version.... I still have to pinch myself sometimes thinking, holy moly this thing is platinum!!!

Also, me and my fam still get super excited and or cry every time it comes on the tele hehe Wink
----

Quote:Erinrippee
You have a gorgeous voice and can do so many different genres! I love your rock/raspy side like when you cover Piece of my Heart, have you written any more original songs that showcase that side of you?

Quote:Haley
Thanks! I've got a rocker one for ya that I can't wait to bust out!
----

Quote:Erinrippee
Hi Haley! You have great voice acting skills, in F is for family and even in some of your Instagram stories the little voices you do would be great for cartoons. Aside from F is for Family, do you see yourself doing anymore voice acting in the future?

Quote:Haley
I would love to do more voice over work & plan on it! As soon ad my schedule allows and the right project comes along... or maybe I should just make my own someday Wink hehe!
----

Quote:2Addicted2Haley
So there's this Japanese commercial that has one of your songs that we haven't heard before. It currently has over 1.4 million views on YouTube. The question is, is there a full version of that song or was it only used for the commercial?

Quote:Haley
'Twas only for the commercial... you never know what could happen, but they seem to want to keep it that way. And if so, don't fret! There's more tune to come
----

Quote:TunefulPopPhoto
Hi Haley!

My multi part question isn't really that important, but I must know...

Have you watched the Sister Act films? If so have the movies and their soundtracks influenced your music in any way, and lastly can we expect a cover of "I Will Follow Him" at some point in the near future? Maybe with fellow Idol Melinda Doolittle and Post Modern Jukebox? OK. The last part is more of a suggestion, but still! Smile

Quote:Haley
Great tune, grew up with my mom singing it! Love sister act haha... love lil Lauryn Hill, def inspiring as a young girl who sang for crowds at an early age as well!
----

Quote:iharthaleydaily
What can Haliens expect from your next album?

Quote:Haley
It's in the very early stages. Right now I'm going through my song list and picking out my favs while writing new ones!
----

Quote:MarionCotesworth
Hey Haley, we have a few questions we like to ask at all our AMAs over here at r/americanidol. First one: How has your perspective on American Idol changed in the years since you were on the show?

Quote:Haley
Hey there! The judges are obvi different along with the producers of the show, so it def changed the structure of the audition process and more so (what they choose to show on tv.) I appreciate all its diff corks & characteristics. Can't speak for the other reality singing shows, but I know how real and authentic Idol is... That's why I'm so proud to have it be such an incredible platform & stepping stone on my journey.

----

Quote:Celly735
Most beautiful Haley,

Beside the obvious, what are your hobbies? Another tour to SF? Love your work! Never cease to share your gift! Big thanks!

Quote:Haley
Thank you lovely! I love being out in nature, out on the water (a boat if poss), soaking up the sun and grounding myself. Rollerskating, shopping, and hula hooping are a few of my fav hobbies as well Smile
----

Quote:ghastlygiraffe
What did you think of the latest season of Idol? How did you feel about the judges and who were your favorite contestants?

Quote:Haley
The judges cracked me up. Very funny and endearing. Loved the first half of the season the most! Love the lil chick with the long hair she whipped around. Hope she keeps shining her light bright!
----

Quote:MarionCotesworth
Here’s our second question from r/americanidol: If you could go back and change one thing you did on the show (song choice, etc.) what would it be?

Quote:Haley
Wouldn't change a thing hunny! Wink But I do wish I took more footage for my memories... It seems as years pass, it becomes that much more surreal.
----

Quote:iharthaleydaily
How does little Bill Murphy's character develop in Season 3 of F Is For Family?

Quote:Haley
Oh! He develops quuuuite a bit haha... and he has his share of good and bad days. Just recorded this morning & its hard not to laugh it's so dang funny!
----

Quote:kcn109
Hi Haley! What is your favorite memory from your time on American Idol?

Quote:Haley
Ahh far too many to choose one! But I did love meeting all the mentors aka superstars as well as my fam (top 11) Smile
----

Quote:WasJosie
Hi Haley! You are one of my favorites, so glad to see good things happen for you. What was your inspiration for Last Kiss Goodbye? When you choose what to work on, do you have a strategy for how to appeal to the demographic that you see as your potential fan base, or is it really more intuitive?

Quote:Haley
Thank you! My intuition has always led me, first and foremost. I wrote this song some years back, realized I don't have anything out there quite like this... then came the vision for the video... and then strategy with the A team! Wink
----

Quote:HaleysTusk
I can barely keep up with new artists and songs, where do you go to find some of the new 'unknown' artists to check out, friend recommendations? Spotify suggestions?

Quote:Haley
Release radar on Spotify is cool! the more you use Spotify, the more they catch on to your style and feed you new tunes that you're bound to dig! I also loooove shazaming tunes and making them into playlists later!

Quote:iharthaleydaily
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?

Quote:Haley
Anything Carmel-y or black cherry... throwback fav was strawberry cheesecake haha
----

Quote:Jcld1029
Haley,

So tell us...

Was the Idol Mansion actually haunted?

Quote:Haley
Hahah probably, some shady stuff went down there... Doors flying open, leaks, ants, oh my!
----
Quote:MarionCotesworth
Final question from r/americanidol: What do you wish you had known before going on American Idol?

Quote:Haley
That all my wildest dreams would be heard and come true... but then again, I think I already knew. Wink Just had to put in that workkkk and have faithhhh!
----

Quote:iharthaleydaily
Can you please make more Haley in the kitchen videos on your Instagram story?

Quote:Haley
I don't cook often, but when I do... I'll try to insta story it hahah!

Hey Haley!

What’s your favorite Harry Potter book and/or movie?

Quote:Haley
Probably the first one! I'll never forget watching it at my school desk for a pizza party hah!
---
Quote:Jcld1029
Nice to hear from you Haley!

Not a question, just letting you know us fans admire your hustle. Releasing music, doing voice acting, writing music for other artists, touring and recording with PMJ, etc. Your portfolio is diverse, and you inspire us to “plant a lot of seeds” Big Grin

Quote:Haley
Why thank you. Smile I truly believe planting the seeds will make your garden grow and grow...!
----

Quote:iconickk123
So one of the projects that you're working on at the moment is voice acting for the Netflix series "F is For Family." Would you ever want to actually act in a show or movie? If so what would be your dream role?

Quote:Haley
Indeed... My fingers are crossed for the big screen! I'd love to play a corky weirdo, or an all American girl, a Bond girl, girl interrupted Kinda girl, a 60's throwback chick... so many roles come to mind!
----

Quote:]iharthaleydaily
What show are you usually watching when you see the Extra Gum commercial on TV?

Quote:Haley
One of my fav shows... impractical jokers hahah!
----

Quote:Reinharted4life
Hey Haley! Just curious... Do you still have curly hair?

Quote:Haley
Yeah it's in there somewhere Wink
----

Quote:HaleysTusk
I heard Mike Meyers has come back to acting. What can we do to get you or your songs on the next Austin Powers movie? Any of your acting contacts might help out? Tongue

Quote:Haley
You guys know I'm allll about that, keep me posted haha! Wink
----

Quote:Erinrippee
Do you plan on ever doing a duet with Drew?

Quote:Haley
Indeed. Smile))
----

Quote:2Addicted2Haley
You've said that "Last Kiss Goodbye" is a song that you wanted to release as a goodie for the start of summer. Does that also mean is it a stand alone single and not on your next album or will it most definitely be on the album?

Quote:Haley
I'd like it to be on the album. Maybe as the dreamy interlude or outro... wherever feels best!
----

Quote:Jcld1029
Hey Haley! As a longtime fan it’s awesome to see you continue to release new music and achieve your dreams!

I hear you have a new album on the way, hopefully this year. What makes your upcoming music different and better (no pun intended) than what you’ve released in the past?

Quote:Haley
Some of these songs will be newer... and some of them will be the hidden gems I've collected over the years and always wanted to re-record/reproduce and release!
----

Quote:2Addicted2Haley
As a songwriter, what song are you the most proud of writing so far?

Quote:Haley
Proud of so many for diff reasons.... But Love Is Worth Fighting For is the first one that popped in my head because of its soulful nature and the meaning behind it.
----

Quote:HaleysTusk
In the WTS tour, you brought back a Listen Up! favorite to perform live (Wonderland). With those recent Joshua Shultz, black and red jazzy photos, makes me think it's a good time to finally give "Liar" some love next tour? You've never performed it live before Smile

Quote:Haley
That could be fun, love that tune! first one I really wrote with Rob Kleiner
----

Quote:damonhucks
Had a meet and greet with you in Charlotte NC last year and you were AWESOME.

My question is: You've stayed relevant since Idol, even more than some of the winners. To what do you credit the most for your continued success?

P.S. Love your work with Casey...come back to Charlotte soon...LOVE YA...TAKE CARE!!

Quote:Haley
First off hi and thank you!!!

In this case I wouldn't credit any ONE thing... I believe success comes along when you tap into ALL of your gifts/hidden talents/passions/etc... I feel blessed that I can be a part of so many remarkable projects & maintain my own brand. I also have great fans like you to thank for coming to my shows and buying my records. Thanks again!
----

Quote:MyNewAccount962
Do you want to sing in more commercials? Your cover of Elvis "Can't Help falling in Love" in the Extra Gum commercial was certified Gold so i was wondering if you did?

Quote:Haley
I would LOVE to. I've had a whole bunch of my tubes in commercials at this point. Check out chase bank, and some sexy faucets haha... Looking forward to the next! PS CHFIL went platinum now Smile) Thanks for your support!
----

Quote:2Addicted2Haley
What was an act of kindness that recently happened to you or witnessed?

Quote:Haley
Me & Drew traveled up to Portland and fed some hungry hippies our left overs haha!
----

That's it, I think.....reddit's point system moves the questions up and down that's why they may not be in chronological order

Quote:Thank you allllll SO much for being a part of this. Your quetions were AMAZING and so are YOU! Keep it real... Until next time. Wink Check out my new ditty, Last Kiss Goodbye & follow me on all socials for updates on current projects! Cant wait to give you more art, 'tis my pleasure and a true honor.

Sincerely,

Miss Haley Reinhart
