"I think it's great that people like American Idol and The Voice, because it shows that they have an appetite for these pop-reality shows.

I was rushing around, trying on different make-up — so I had like five different foundations on one side, and a bunch of different lipstick and eye pencils on the other side of my cheek — and my hair was like some crazy side-ponytail, and I was wearing two different shoes asking, 'Which one looks better? What should I do?' as I tripped everywhere. I really don't try to be cool, because I'm not."
