DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - On her radio show Tuesday, Khloe Kardashian Odom chatted with Kat Graham, and if you don't know her name yet, you probably will soon. Khloe accurately described the star as "more than a triple threat." Graham is an actress, singer, songwriter, dancer – and she has one very special celebrity crush.
Fans of the supernatural may recognize Graham as Bonnie Bennett from The CW drama "The Vampire Diaries," currently in its third season. "It's kind of crazy because, when we shoot the show in the boonies of Georgia, you don't really feel the magnitude of it," she said.
The show has featured some of Graham's music in the past, but the 22-year-old starlet is now working to expand her music career. Khloe spoke to Graham over the phone, as the burgeoning singer was "locked in a recording studio" in Atlanta. She just signed her first major recording contract with A&M Octone Records last week, and is busy prepping her first major-label single –"Put Your Graffiti on Me" – for release later this year.
Graham described the track as "upbeat industrial pop." They are also producing a music video. "I think that it's something the fans are really going to like," she said.
Khloe asked how young star is able to juggle all of her career goals, and Graham made a comparison to the reality-star-turned-radio-host. "One of my favorite things about you is that you just kind of do whatever you feel like doing," Graham told Khloe. "If I wake up in the morning and want to make a record, I make a record."
"I just end up working hard on the projects I put my time into," Graham added.
Graham's similar work ethic must have gotten Khloe a little ramped up inside. "You are a hot vampire," Khloe told her guest. "Let's just suck each other's blood." But it's actually another Kardashian that gets Graham's blood boiling.
Khloe asked Graham about rumors that she has a crush on Rob Kardashian, Khloe's little brother. "Yes, it's totally true," Graham admitted, getting a little embarrassed by the topic. "Black people don't really blush, but I would be blushing if I did."
