I’m really not that special. Really, I’m not. I was on a big TV show, but it was just a TV show.
I’m religious. I think this is something God had planned for me.
It’s not the money. It’s not the fame. It’s the influence.
No matter what the situation you’re in, if you’re raised in a loving environment, that’s the most important thing.
There are stars out there who would die to have this much exposure.
While everyone I work with may not share my beliefs, I have been surrounded by nothing but support.
I know this is going to sound cheesy and like I’m trying to be Miss America, but the most important responsibility a celebrity has is to set an example and be a role model.
I kind of had my life planned out for me. I’d be married at some point, have, you know, 1.5 children, and be a principal possibly one day. But I think that that was kind of my problem. I allowed myself to plan out my life and didn’t let provident direction guide my life.

Well, financially it’s a little bit better. But it’s better than than when I was a teacher. But I kind of – it’s allowed me to buy a house. And I’ve been able to help my mother with some stuff and my brother. So, that’s nice.
Well, there are certain words and emotions I don’t want kids hearing, and I’m not changing because they think it’s going to sell better. This is going to sound horrible, but I got 12 million votes doing what I did.
I was on TV for almost sixteen weeks during American Idol. It’s at the point now where it’s old.
I’d never take a job where I had to do something that I didn’t want to do.
I’m being trained to shake the bon-bon appropriately.
I sometimes think I might be autistic because I like to know – I need to know – my beginnings and my ends. I don’t have to be in control of it, but I need to know what’s going on.
