So you know, my plan was that I was going to make records, and be a rock star. And that’s really what I wanted to do. And I sang from the time I was very young.
And I think that’s why I was going to be a musician. I was very rebellious. And I didn’t want to be an actor. My father used to say to me you should be an actor if you want to be in the arts.
It was really fun. It was fun for a lot of reasons. It was fun because nobody thought that we would be successful. It was on a network that wasn’t even there at the time.
I don’t know, Y’know, I always wanted to be one of those cheerleader girls and I never was that, and I was never sort of cute and perky, and I always thought it was fun to be cute and perky, and those, I don’t know what those girls are doing now.
For me it’s also – the music is equally as important. I mean I think as somebody who writes music, there just has to sort of be the marriage between both.
But I started it when I was going through a transitional time in my life. At the end of it, it really sort of symbolized it. I had made room to change, and room to grow. I recorded it in a little room.
And then I think now we are – you know his – like I’ve always said. His spirit is so large that we feel his presence around the show, and we always will. He will always have a voice.
So they’ve actually – it’s not that her character is a singer, but she had ambition to do that at an earlier time in her life. So I’ve actually sung two or three times now on the show.
Um, I have an enormous faith in God. I have an enormous support system that also has that same belief.
To be shapely when you’re in the seventh grade is not exactly what everyone’s looking for, or they weren’t then, as someone was telling me the other day. now, that’s like a really great thing to do, to be, but then it wasn’t.
I’m very comfortable as a singer. In fact, I think it’s more – I identified my self-esteem, my self more in those ways when I was growing up. I really – it was kind of my calling card as a kid.
