High school pain for 'Glee' star Heather Morris

Unlike her "Glee" character Brittany S. Pierce, Heather Morris' own high school experience wasn't exactly something to sing about.
"Honestly, I didn’t enjoy it. My dad passed away before my freshman year, and it altered how I thought," the 23-year-old star, who plays McKinley High's lovably ditzy cheerleader, tells February's Teen Vogue. "I was depressed - I didn’t hang out with my friends. I worked through it by dancing."
That would eventually lead to a pre-"Glee" gig as a backup dancer on Beyoncé's Single Ladies tour. "We had twelve-hour days of nonstop dancing," says Morris. "It was so cool to go around the world."

The Arizona native tells the magazine she has wanted to be a singer since she was a child, and although she's had the opportunity to perform some of the most popular songs ever recorded, there is still one show-stopper she hopes to tackle on the hit Fox series.
"I would die to do 'Part of Your World' from 'The Little Mermaid'!" says Morris. "I used to sit on a rock and sing that when I was four. I’ve wanted to perform my entire life."
