On her upcoming country album:
“I”m scared as hell. Some days I go to sleep and I”m like, What am I doing People aren”t going to take me seriously. Music is my favorite thing, and I”m going to fight to make it happen.”
On her figure woes:
“I was on the beach in Hawaii and there were paparazzi in the bushes. I don”t think anybody wants to be photographed in their bikini unless you”re like a Victoria”s Secret model. There”s always a little voice in my head that says, Suck it in a little morebut you know, I”m so comfortable with who I am, I”m just like, screw it! Take pictures!”
On her favorite workouts:
“Long runs. Yesterday I ran 9 miles and I was euphoric. It was amazing. My knees hurt and I was in pain afterward, but I did it!”
On things she cannot avoid:
“Parking tickets. I have three right now. I always get them. Maybe the [cops] are just drawn to the fact that I”m in a red zone and shouldn”t be parking there. That could be it.”
