Grace VanderWaal is now a millionaire thanks to winning ‘America’s Got Talent’ Sept. 14. HollywoodLife.com sat down with the talented pre-teen and she’s telling us EXCLUSIVELY what’s the first thing she’s going to buy with her big bucks. Read on for her answer that is totally too cute for words!
“That hasn’t sunken in yet that I am a millionaire, Howie had to explain what that was to me,” Grace, 12, sweetly tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY after her big win on America’s Got Talent. So what’s going to be her first big purchase? Designer outfits? A new iPhone? Nope! She’s got the down-home wishes of a pre-teen from upstate New York! “I want to buy a treehouse, actually buy two, one for me and one for my sister with zip lines joining them so we can visit each other,” she explained. OMG, are you dying like we are over her adorable first purchase as a one percenter?
“My Dad always said he would build one but never did,” Grace added. Now she can hire an architect to build the treehouse of her dreams with all the money she’s taking home from AGT. We love the fact that she’s making sure to include her sister, that’s so sweet that she wants to make sure they each have tree houses of their very own. After all, young girls need their own private spaces!
Hopefully the Suffern, NY pre-teen will have plenty of time to get to play in her treehouse before she heads to Las Vegas to headline her own show, which is an additional prize in the AGT win. After being declared “the next Taylor Swift“ by judge Simon Cowell, she can use her new natural residence to keep writing out those killer original songs that impressed the judges and fans so much. Taylor has been known to have certain spaces where she likes to write, and we’re sure Grace’s treehouse will provide perfect musical inspiration.
