Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Pia Toscano has the voice of an angel, but she tells HollywoodLife.com she wants to take Hollywood by storm as well! Do YOU think that’s a good idea?

Pia Toscano is no one trick pony. The 22-year-old singer says that though music comes first, she is game to give Angelina Jolie a run for her money and thinks acting would be  a lot of fun!

“In high school I did a lot of musical theater. I would like to cover everything!” Pia told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the launch of the Samsung Infuse 4G by AT&T event in Hollywood May 12.

When asked whether she’s sees herself as a Meryl Streep or an Angelina she said, “I would like to do it all!”

After her elimination from American Idol April 7 left fans stunned, the singer was the center of attention and admits that she gets shy in front of cameras.

“It is something that I have to work on. It is still hard to get out of my comfort zone,” she said.

Don’t expect to be seeing the breakout star back on reality TV any time soon, though.

“I’m not sure that another reality show is for me,” she told us, adding, “I might get more comfortable in front of the camera and do more reality stuff. But we’ll see.”

Do YOU think Pia is Hollywood’s next big actress? Sound off below!
