On her Vegas show:
“When you tour, it”s so hard on the body. I look back and I don”t know how I did it. Being in one place is cool. It”s more stable environment. Las Vegas is a fun place. There is so much going on. The energy here is incredible. You feel it walking through the casino. Everybody is here to have a good time.”
On her workouts:
“I have not been this sore in my entire life. When I started working out, I was sore for like, three days. I could hardly move. I”m really challenging myself with the choreography… whenever I do a show, I”m really keen on making it a show. I love to dance and perform. Because it”s Vegas, I want to do something different. This is the perfect place to bring it to the next level.”
On her taste of fame:
“It was kind of like a dream. I”m from a small town and I wasn”t expecting anything. When it happened, it was kind of surreal. I got so busy traveling that I was oblivious to it all. I didn”t even realize what was happening. It was like a dream that I never woke up from. It was pretty spectacular… It”s important to have a group of people around you who can keep you down to earth. It”s a mind-altering experience when you become a pop star at such a young age. Some people are made for it and some people aren”t. If you keep good friends around you and stay grounded, you”ll be ok.”
On her personality away from the stage:
“This is the thing, I”m actually really shy. I don”t like having my picture taken. I don”t like the attention, but it”s something that comes with success. I”ve accepted the paparazzi are going to be there; I just try to wear the same thing every day so I become uninteresting. I”ve never [followed the tabloids that write about me]. I know there is rude stuff out there, but I choose not to be a part of it. It”s all kind of silly.”
