We are supposed to enjoy the good stuff now, while we can, with the people we love. Life has a funny way of teaching us that lesson over and over again.
I would make tea for Joni Mitchell or clean her car, anything to be in the studio and watch her work.
Proving I'm a good mother is the one achievement I'm most proud of. It's brought out the best in me.
Disco is just pop music you can dance to.
I wouldn't consciously pursue trying to make something for the charts. It's just not in my scope now. I'd rather stick needles in my eyes.
If I was still at school, I'd be looking at Britney Spears and dying to be her.
It's very validating when you are new in the industry to get awards. It boosts your self-esteem.
Any time I have to get on a plane and leave my kids for a few days, it's kind of tortuous.
I'm definitely a pop artist at heart.
Every time I show up to do something here it's considered a comeback. If I came into town and they didn't call it that, I'd be disappointed.
I'm terrible at relationships. I consider myself to be smart and a good mother but it's taken me this long to realise you don't have to marry a guy after three days or dump him.
My sole focus as far back as I can remember was all about my dream to become a singer.
I have the life of Riley. I take my kids to school, do a bit of work in the afternoon, pick my kids up, microwave a meal, hang out with my kids, and work for a couple of hours.
My mother has never been involved in my professional life. I am very close to my mother but we keep it on a mother-daughter basis and not a work-related basis.
I used to think I had to stay frozen in time. No amount of Botox will keep up.
Even if your job is a professional singer, we still dork out at home.
Even though I pretty much made my own decisions early on, when I was younger I tended to overbook my life.
I have lived in the United States for half of my life, my entire adult life.
I was blessed in the sense that I got handed so much early on in life. I got a lot of the things people go through their 20s and 30s craving.
I'd love to a duet with Luther Vandross.
