I’m definitely addicted to purses.
Singing is just another outlet to express what I feel and to show everyone who I really am. I really don’t talk about my personal life that much in interviews because that’s my life, but with music, the way I write explains who I am.
Behind closed doors, I’m a crafty person.
Be very professional because it will get you a lot further. You have to treat people with the same respect whether they’re signing your checks or cleaning up after you.
I used to breed poodles. I liked them because they were fluffy and so cute – and honestly, they make a lot of money when you sell them!
The way we function in society – it doesn’t make sense sometimes because it’s all based on how you look and then how badly you should feel after you eat the food we just advertised. And then when someone in the public eye goes up or down, it’s like a major moment.
I’ve definitely had obstacles in my career – my whole entire career – to stay a certain weight, to get smaller than I have been, but I look at my family, I look at where I come from and that’s not really in our genes.
I went to public school, elementary through high school. I went to homecoming, to football games, pep rallies, I got detention, I got an F. I’ve done it all.
I have a responsibility to not look crazy in public. I don’t want to be the person where later in life when I have kids, to say, ‘Don’t do this’ and my kids go, ‘But Mom, you did it.’
I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing.’
Everybody takes breaks, and I decided to take mine. I wanted a chance to wake up at two in the afternoon and not be a subject of entertainment. I wanted to be a human being. At certain times and certain years, I felt like the Energizer bunny. That gets old very quickly.
I’m not perfect. This is how I was raised. If I wasn’t in the industry, I’d be the same person.
It’s important for young people to know that they are made the way they are made and they’re beautiful and that’s how they’re supposed to be.
It’s difficult to not be able to just be yourself without criticism in any position, whether you’re in high school, college, or this industry.
I believe you should be comfortable in your skin no matter what you go through – emotionally or whatever – as long as you’re healthy.
