Personal Quote:

If you're looking for inner peace from the outside world, you're not going to get that. The inner peace starts with looking at you from the inside. Understanding that everything that comes to you is what you are. Everything from friends to boyfriends to the job you get - it's all a direct reflection of what you are on the inside. See more »

Trivia:

A huge fan of Led Zeppelin since she was a child, the singer went so far as to perform the band's classic "Stairway to Heaven" as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986) [April 13, 2010]. See more »
