8. (on performing Whitney's song "I Will Always Love You" just days after her death) I was really, really nervous. No one can touch Whitney Houston's version, obviously, but I went in to do my best. It was my dedication to her. I was so glad I got to do it.

10. (on who taught her how to drive) Oh, God. I actually went to driving school. I'm the youngest, so my parents were like: "We've been there, done that, and we're sending you to driving school." But I'm from Los Angeles, so I already knew the Los Angeles traffic pretty well.
