The teen-sensation singer and actress, who's celebrating 20 years in showbusiness, on growing up in public, twerking and the patience needed for braids
Hi Brandy! You've been performing live recently - how have the shows been going?
I've been flying! Natasha Bedingfield once told me that when she sings she feels like she's flying, and I said I never really feel like that because I'm always worried about other things, but recently I've been more able to just let go. Now I'm so full of energy and love.
That's nice Brandy.
It's so nice!
So ... a lot of actresses who have done teen sitcoms and then had a music career have gone a little off the rails(1). Are you worried?
No, I think I've already gone through my bad girl phase … I've done things I haven't been proud of.
Like twerking on Robin Thicke?
Ha ha no! Look, everybody has experiences »

When Nickelodeon first launched in 1977, it seemed like little more than a child's answer to Saturday Night Live and MTV. In fact, it wasn't until Nickelodeon debuted the Canadian sketch series You Can't Do That on Television in the U.S. that this nascent network began to gain real traction amongst fans of all ages. Before too long, the basic cable channel became quite popular, especially with the launch of it's Nick At Nite line-up featuring such "classic" shows as Alf, The Facts of Life, Growing Pains and many others throughout the years. Viewership certainly proceeded to explode, turning it into one of today's favorite hubs for nostalgia of all kinds.
Nickelodeon had officially arrived in the 1990s, taking its signature brand to the big screen with Nickelodeon Movies in 1995. It wasn't until 1997, though, that this film division made its most iconic and beloved movie of all time: Good Burger. »
