“I’ve always had problems with my weight”

What’s your biggest health concern?I’d have to say I’d like to get pregnant within the next year or two. I’m going to be 36 this year and I don’t want to wait too much longer.

How do you keep in shape?
Dancing and performing practically every night is really stressful on the body and I have an exercise regime whereby I alternate weights and aerobics training. I won’t give that up, even now that I’m off the road. I do a regular two-and-a-half-hour workout six days a week, to keep myself in shape.

How do you stay healthy on tour?
It’s hard – my last tour took a lot out of me. I always have someone who prepares good meals for me while I’m on the road. I’m careful to get enough carbohydrates and protein. When you’re as physical as I am, it’s essential. I couldn’t exist on a Big Mac every night. Now the tour’s over, it feels great to be able to sleep and not have to be somewhere catching a plane. I’m not sure I’m going to be touring anytime soon. I’d like to stay home in LA and do a movie. Anything that would keep me close to home – I really miss my family.

Do you worry about your weight?
I’ve always had problems with my weight, which has fluctuated over the years. I was heavy at one point and not happy about it. I felt sluggish and my clothes were uncomfortable. I hope I’m a beacon to overweight girls that with a proper diet and exercise, they can lose those extra pounds. It’s just not healthy to be heavy. I’ve got great fitness trainers now so I’ve maintained a good weight for a while. I’m happy with the way I look and feel and that’s important for my self-esteem.

What parts of you aren’t perfect?
So many things, I don’t know where to start. I have bad hair days, get blemishes and bloated just like everyone else. It’s just you’re not there to see!

What drives you to perform when you don’t feel like it?
Simple – my fans. They pay to see a good show and that’s exactly what I want to give them. Singing and dancing and all the joy that goes with performing comes from my heart. If I can’t feel it, I won’t do it.

How do you relax?
I love my candles. It’s just amazing to relax by candlelight.

What’s your favourite and least favourite part of your body?
I like the small of my back but I hate my cheeks. They’ve been like this since I was a kid. They’re just like my dad’s but I have more meat on them and they hurt when I smile. But I wouldn’t have plastic surgery. I can’t believe what people pay to have that done.

What vitamin supplements do you take?
I have multivitamin and herbs. I’m very much into holistic medicine. I really believe the more natural it is, the healthier it is for you. That’s just my take and everyone has to decide for themselves what works, but I’d be lost without supplements. I think they’re extremely beneficial for me.

What’s your philosophy on life?
I really believe in mind, body and spirit. They all work together to make us better, healthier people. We’re all born special but I think we lose it along the way somehow, whether our parents don’t tell us enough, or at all, an it’s about finding that place within you that keeps you happy. You have to believe in yourself.

What’s your top health tip?
Beauty definitely radiates from within. So I’d urge everyone to have a beautiful heart, a beautiful soul and everything will come from that point. I’d use my mother Katherine as a fine example. She’s raised a big family and at this point in her life she’s astounding. She’s got beautiful skin, she’s so radiant. That’s what I want – to grow older with grace and dignity.
