Hi, everyone! Yesterday was a big day. I released my new single “Never Let Me Go” and I think it’s the best one yet! I pushed myself more vocally on this track than ever before and I hope you love it. Stay tuned to see me record this song on upcoming episodes. You can download it now on iTunes.
Also, Joe and I got to go to MTV’s Video Music Awards last night in Brooklyn. It was my very first time at the VMAs. The energy there is amazing and vibe is so relaxed. Fans were screaming at their favorite celebs going down the red carpet and everyone had a smile on their face! All of the performances were great, but there is no denying that Justin Timberlake blew the roof off. His performance gave me chills. He is one of the most humble and sweetest guys out there. He deserved his special award on so many levels. He was beyond amazing. God Bless him. I’ve been watching the VMAs for as long as I can remember, and to be there was more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you Johnny Wright for making it happen.
And thank you, Joe, for planning a beautiful birthday weekend for me! I just wish I wasn’t sick. I felt pretty bad when I woke up the day we flew out. That was why I squeezed lemons down my throat on the plane -- an old tip from my grandmother. A truckload of lemons wouldn’t have helped this time. The dry air in Arizona made my throat even worse. A single drop of water felt like swallowing glass.
