I am woman, hear me roar.
Depression, as far as I'm concerned, is just a waste of time.
Believe it or not, most people think of me as a recording artist, but actually the way I think of myself and the way I earn my living is as a performing artist.
I think that two people who decide to live together in a marriage situation, they have an obligation to make the marriage work for them.
If you tell people your ambitions, they usually laugh at you. When I told my girlfriends when I was 12 that I was going to Hollywood, they all laughed. And here I am!
It took me a year to really learn the American lingo. I really feel for people who are coming here and don't speak English at all. It must be hell.
Most of the people I know in show business don't need anybody pushing them at all. They're extremely aggressive.
My audience are the same people who bought my albums years ago. These people are now married, with their own homes, their own families. If I'm in concert, I get people now who bring their kids.
My audience is the baby-boomers, the bulk of the population. This is also a group that is being ignored by most record companies because they're not the Top 40 hit singles market. They forget these people still listen to music.
I thought Erica Jong's Fear of Flying was one of the biggest pieces of crap that I've ever read in my life.
I couldn't do anything. I'd work in a department store for a couple of weeks, but I couldn't hack it. I couldn't even type! I had no skills whatsoever outside of show business.
I was very strongly influenced by women's magazines and I really believed tha a woman could not be married and raise a family and have a successful career all at the same time.
Stop living a day at a time and stop worrying about age.
You're not going to find a man whose socks don't get dirty or who doesn't snore.
I don't know if it's a sign of all the chaos that is happening out there or not, but I've lately craved the structure and order of classical music, the balance and symmetry.
