I'll be a nun, raise my daughter, and make albums.
When you get a chance to step back, you notice all these great things you've done and all these great people that you've worked with.
Just staying true to yourself and staying true to your passion. Following your gut.
That's the beautiful part about acting - you get to play somebody other than yourself. So, I'm open to people who can't sing, people who can, people that sing a little bit, or people that sing a lot.
There's a lot of people out there who go through hard times, and they feel alone. They feel like nobody is there. But I'm in the same boat.
