I don't want to wake up and not truly be enjoying my life and these amazing things around me.
I'm living life as best I can – but I'm not exempt from failure and making bad choices.
I am constantly working out-circuit training, jumping rope, and stair-stepping, and sticking to 1200 calories a day. It can't be something that you're doing to lose weight, and then once you do, you're done. I do it every day of my life.
The world when I was 13 wasn't truly driven by tabloid magazines and social media and reality shows. I was able to have a little more of a private life.
The funny thing is the songs that people think are about me probably aren't. And the songs that are probably are the ones they wouldn't think… so that's where it kind of is funny.
I was told when I was little I couldn't have an opinion because you want everyone to buy your record and like you.
I think singing traditional country is wonderful, because I'm bringing it to my generation and to the younger kids.
I'm very ADD when it comes to working out. I have to keep it interesting for myself or it just gets quite monotonous.
Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I see a child, then I look and see a woman who should be turning 60.
Janis Joplin is definitely one of my biggest influences. She taught me how to feel music, and I don't think there's anyone like her that could bring such pain and emotion to a song.
Reba McEntire came through town when I lived in Texas. She had this amazing theatrical show with, like, 13 different wardrobe changes. I was eight and I was like, Wow, I wanna do that!
I don't ever want to bring a child into this world without being as healthy as I can be; it's as simple as that.
People are so quick to judge and make decisions for themselves about situations they know absolutely nothing about.
My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn't a fulfilling marriage for either of us.
I needed to become something besides the star everybody had built me up to be.
What's life without love? You can accomplish everything you want in life, but without anyone to share it with, what's it really worth?
Just because someone can sit behind a computer screen and have a different name and hide themselves, they feel like they can do anything to anyone.
I don't earn my money from trying to hurt people or get in the tabloids.
I want to make my music and be a happy woman, a good wife, a good mom and one day hopefully have a child of my own.
Keep your sense of self; don't get caught up in what people want you to be.
I don't believe it's productive to go around and badmouth anyone that I work with, because at the end of the day, we all have to sit in front of each other and agree or disagree.
What people don't understand is that it wasn't about Dean or Eddie, it was about whether or not I was in the right place.
Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and…. I'm Mrs. Cibrian!
