Monet, Monet Monico, Monet Lerner, pictures, picture, photos, photo, pics, pic, images, image, hot, sexy, Disney, singer, actress, music, albums, lyrics, interviews, newsMonét is quickly building a fan base by grabbing the audience's attention for every act she opens for, a heavyweight lineup that has included Jesse McCartney, B5 and the platinum-selling Jonas Brothers. Her relentless enthusiasm and bubbly attitude on stage is undeniably contagious.

"The other day the Jonas Brothers and I were playing at the same fair and this girl came out just to see me," Monét says. "She didn't even care the Jonas Brothers were playing across the way, and I realized that I'm actually making an impact on people. That's just what I want to do with my music; I want people to have fun and be free and smile."

For someone so young, the ups and downs of the business have yet to impact Monét's passion for performing or her commitment to her fans. In a time of fallen pop stars and frequent reports of alcohol and drug related arrests in young Hollywood, Monét pushes on confident in her own character.

"Yeah I'm 17 years old and could be influenced by that, but I choose not to be," the up-and-comer says. "I'm very self minded and I like to stay on the right track. I've never done those things and I never will because it's just not me and it's not who I want people to look up to me as."

"People looked up to Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, and I don't want to be the kind of person parents don't like," she continues. "I want to reach out to everyone. My mom and dad taught me very well and I'm very lucky that way."

Not one to simply walk the walk, Monét donates much of her time and talents to such charities as the Ronald McDonald House, The American Cancer Society and Children's Hospitals all over the country. This past year she received the 2007 "Care Award" to recognize her generous spirit.

Knowing exactly where she belongs, Monét has the positive attitude and the drive crucial to making it. To this rising star, there's really no other option.

"It's what I love to do and I know deep down in my heart if acting stopped, if the music stopped, I wouldn't live," she confesses. "I wouldn't be able to function because it's what I need.

"If I had to be a tax accountant I would die. This job is the best job in the world and I wouldn't trade it for anything."
