"The schedule is crazy--it's all suitcases and hotel rooms
and you just go nonstop. It's a crazy lifestyle, it really
"I love doing normal things - movies, shopping, going out
with friends, writing, reading, taking hot bubble baths
- that's a big one for relaxation. I also love to go to
art and history museums."
"I'm always nervous before I go on stage, [but] once I'm
out there everything is great and it's my favorite place
"My parent's divorce and hard times at school, all
those things combined to mold me, to make me grow up quicker.
And it gave me the drive to pursue my dreams that I wouldn't
necessarily have had otherwise."
definitely a dream come true to be recognized and to be
able to sign autographs. But, it's also a lot of hard work
and can be draining. If you don't know already, you will
quickly learn who your real friends are."
don't want to be just a straight pop singer. I'm a vocalist
and that's what I want to be seen as in the long run."
been quite a roller coaster ride, but I've grown and learned
a lot about myself...The greatest thing is being able to
interact with fans and touch people's lives..."
not really religious but very spiritual. I give money to
this company that manufactures hearing aids on a regular
basis. More people should really hear me sing. I have a
gift from God."
"I'm an ocean, because I'm really deep. If you search deep
enough you can find rare exotic treasures (gallstones)."
would just make me one more person pushing them (her fans)
to feel like they have to be something they're not."
not just another bimbo. I've got a brain and a heart. And
I'm not going to let my body distract people from that fact."
being 18 does put even more pressure on you if you want
to be taken seriously as an artist, because you have to
be on top of what you want to say, how you want to say it,
what you want your points to be and how to get them across.
You have to be way sharper than anybody else because people
expect you to be this bubble-gum airhead, like a dipsy young
girl who doesn't know what she's talking about."
think society has created it's own image of what is the
perfect girl, like there's a certain body type that's the
right thing for girls to look like. Somehow, young girls
are brought up to believe that."
okay to be confident and have opinions and to go out there
and be something like a firefighter. As a girl, it's really
important to remind yourself of that."
part of why I wanted fame so bad was to use it to spread
the word about domestic violence and child abuse. It was
something that I had been exposed to, and had experienced
on a certain level. When my schedule clears, I'd like to
go to schools and talk to kids, maybe share my experiences."
too easy to give in to peer pressure, to listen too much
to the male's opinion. I receive letters from fans writing

love this polar bear! I'm happy to be able to help preserve
the special gifts that animals give by joining Stars in
the Wild and their commitment to ensuring the survival of
the planet's greatest natural resource."
on Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit): "Fred, man, how dumb are you
if you're trying to get with somebody and then you're going
to appear in a video that flat-out disses her. Fred and
I were actually being cool with each other. He took me out
one time and bought me a milkshake. After hearing rumors...

told me before the video came out he wasn't in it."
