I was blessed in the sense that I got handed so much early on in life. I got a lot of the things people go through their 20s and 30s craving.
It's nice to have been around long enough to be a part of people's lives. A lot of people who come to my show are real nostalgic for the '80s.
We are supposed to enjoy the good stuff now, while we can, with the people we love. Life has a funny way of teaching us that lesson over and over again.
Even though I pretty much made my own decisions early on, when I was younger I tended to overbook my life.
I have lived in the United States for half of my life, my entire adult life.
I have the life of Riley. I take my kids to school, do a bit of work in the afternoon, pick my kids up, microwave a meal, hang out with my kids, and work for a couple of hours.
My mother has never been involved in my professional life. I am very close to my mother but we keep it on a mother-daughter basis and not a work-related basis.
Any time I have to get on a plane and leave my kids for a few days, it's kind of tortuous.
Every time I show up to do something here it's considered a comeback. If I came into town and they didn't call it that, I'd be disappointed.
I used to think I had to stay frozen in time. No amount of Botox will keep up.
Even if your job is a professional singer, we still dork out at home.
It's very validating when you are new in the industry to get awards. It boosts your self-esteem.
I'd love to a duet with Luther Vandross.
I'm just passionately in love with my kids.
I would make tea for Joni Mitchell or clean her car, anything to be in the studio and watch her work.
