I've had enough boyfriends and enough issues. I'd seen enough train wrecks.
My tastes and inspirational artists were always rather eclectic and diverse.
And I'm also looking for a comeback record and it has to touch a lot of people.
Did people think I sounded black? Totally, but that was a marketing tool as well, but also this is how I grew up and these are my influences.
All you needed back then was a blow dryer and a dream.
By the second tour I had rice cakes and hummus with me, and I was jumping rope in my room.
So when I'm working out I do things extreme.
But once you strip that down, you realize it's all about a voice, like a Norah Jones - that's inspiring to me.
I have to be very careful about diet and exercise.
I just try to get out of my own way because if anyone is their own worst enemy, it's usually you.
This is one hell of a business I picked to be in.
I came out the box and for seven years I had a huge career. And then it's done, it's dumped. But I ain't gone, and I refuse to be gone.
I smoked some pot as a kid, but I just never did drugs.
I'm not looking to go out there and make a rhythmic Timbaland track.
My first tour I was on the road for 18 months. You're just out there promoting.
