The way I become friends with somebody is a slow process. You can’t just spill your guts and tell them everything about yourself and expect them to listen and understand you because you don’t know them. It’s the same thing with a relationship.
“I don’t (deal with gossip). This comes from maturing and growing up, but I’ve learned to let things roll off my back. If people say negative things, I could care less. But I let it give me a boost of confidence if they’re saying nice things. If the press says anything, I see it as a plus because at least people are paying attention and watching the show.”
