IN YOUR MUSIC VIDEO FOR "REACH OUT," YOU ARE QUITE THE TEMPTRESS. WAS THAT AN INTENTIONAL IMAGE MAKEOVER?
I was ready to do something different. The intent was not to be overtly sexual; I’m not naked. I do have little shorts on in it—but I also wear a giant tutu. It’s good to show different sides of yourself.
WHAT’S THE WORST THING EVER WRITTEN ABOUT YOU?
I’ve been accused by the press of giving lap dances at clubs. I mean, little ol’ me? It’s shocking. People love to believe it—it’s way more exciting to talk about than the truth! And they’re so descriptive about these lap dances. I don’t even know how to do a lap dance!
DID YOUR NOW-INFAMOUS COMMENT ABOUT BEING A VIRGIN, QUOTED IN A MAGAZINE BACK IN 2006, COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU?
You know what? I was quoted saying I was a virgin, but I absolutely did not say that. That’s nobody’s business but my own. Somehow it turned into a bad thing!
