On healthy eating:
"As soon as I'm supposed to diet, that's when I eat more. Before the MTV video awards, I was trying to lose weight, but my uncle did a barbecue and we had this amazing potato salad that I couldn't turn down. I ended up gaining five pounds."
On looking flawless:
"I don't go for facials. I've realized that so much of what appears on your skin has to do with what goes in your body. I always take my make-up off with MAC's cleansing wipes. They could take down a house! I use a moisturizing cleanser and I never towel-dry my face; I let it air-dry instead. I also keep my hair off my face when I'm sleeping. That keeps my skin smooth."
On her Barbie-inspired makeup:
"I always wear pink lips. It's a Barbie look and I love it. I tend to stick to the same eye look- a big black lash and a big black liner. I like to layer my lashes and sometimes add glitter to my eyelids."
On branding her new perfume:
"I knew if there was a pink wig on the bottle [of my new scent], it would be synonymous with my persona. When they came back with a sketch, I nearly passed out - it's perfect."
