We got into the last five or six minutes of the movie and it’s a very emotional ending. And…I saw Hugh just do this a little bit. I suddenly realized, Oh Lord, I need to do the same thing. And then this is what I felt. I swear. That was what happened and Hugh held my hand and of course I was done. I was finished. I’m just weeping and sobbing, but then we had to wait for the credits to roll before we could go up on stage and be introduced and while the credits were rolling cus’ they are long in these movies. I realized if this is the end, there is no more perfect and beautiful way to say au revoir, goodbye and adios than what has just happened.
A lot of people ask me, ‘How did you have the courage to walk up to record labels when you were 12 or 13 and jump right into the music industry?’ It’s because I knew I could never feel the kind of rejection that I felt in middle school. Because in the music industry, if they’re gonna say no to you, at least they’re gonna be polite about it. “
