Personal Quotes (4)

Songs are like movies to me, and so you put yourself in the movie. You become a character in the movie. The new ones are exciting because they're fresh. But if it's not that, if the story is not what you get into, maybe it's the crowd response. You hit the first chords of 'She's In Love With The Boy' and 20,000 people start to scream, you're pretty motivated. You get what you need. And it's a great story. It works.
I always want to sing, but I don't always want to be trying to have #1 records. I don't think you can do it forever. I don't know what the time span of that is going to be. I want to sing because I want to sing.
I don't spend time wondering what might be next; I just focus on trying to savor every day. Maybe that's the biggest lesson of all.
I've been blessed to live a lot of dreams. But finally looking the way I want, feeling better than I ever knew I could and wearing tucked in shirt with a black leather skirt - that is way up there!
