I started working when I was seven and I was working for five dollars a night at the Met.
I started singing at the Met when I was seven, and the competition was so fierce that it really prepared me.
I've learned to take jobs as an actress that is meaningful to me because I've never taken a job for the money.
I try to keep myself as sane and as grounded as possible by surrounding myself with normal people, such as all the friends that I've had from when I was little.
I know that I am my worst critic. I know that if I can walk away from the set at the end of the day and feel that I did the best job I could and feel proud, that's what will satisfy me.
I've been in the studio experimenting on making a CD of my own. I'm trying out different producers, styles, sounds. With music, as opposed to acting, you are not playing a character. You are showing people who you are. I really want to have my spirit in it.
