With the '60s era and Motown, my grandparents actually introduced us to that when I was younger, so I grew up listening to the Jackson Five, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Supremes and Diana Ross' solo stuff. I just loved it.
'Battlefield' was one of those slow-building songs, the way 'Tattoo' was. It was kind of a word-of-mouth hit. The more people heard it, the more they started requesting it on the radio.
I love berries. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black berries, anything with an 'errie' in it!
My whole journey has been about self-acceptance.
I love dill pickles! They're on my rider for my concerts so I eat one every day.
There are a lot of parallels to the 'Sparkle' story and my story.
