because at the time when you were a downtown star to a superstar, it was the fastest meteoric rise I've ever seen in my life. Did it feel that way? You know it At the time, I just thought, Oh, this is what happened. And looking back, I can't believe it. Yeah, it was fast, and it even gives me jitters. Now, when I think about putting out a new record because on the one side you think, Oh, I really want everyone to love it. And then on the other side you go. What if they really love it? Because I remember what happens when the world just falls in love with something that you've made and your whole life changes the atmosphere, the energy around you, the responsibility. It's just it zaps you into a roller coaster. But don't you think you're more used to it now, having gone through it with the first album and then with the fame, Um, do you understand? You know what I mean? You've been through it now, really, in the thick of it. And what I loved was cheek to cheek that you did with Tony because it was so different and people did not expect. It was so beautifully done and so beautifully executed. And it was so different that I love that young kids are hearing this type of jazz music that there never would have listened to, um and Bravo for that. But, I mean, it was a different reception. You know, I don't think I will ever, ever feel comfortable. And you've never gotten used to the fame. No, you I've never got Well, um, now I get I'm more frequently. I'm 90% of the time. Don't give a shit if somebody has a camera in my face while I'm at the grocery store right now, I used to really shut down, get emotional, run to my car and cry, Uh, like, hold my security guard and weep, like in the arms of, like, people that I didn't even maybe really know that. Well, yet they just worked with me. I mean, I really had a hard time because it's it's quite it is. Are you an introvert at heart or you an extrovert? What? Do you Are you pretending to be an extrovert? I'm not pretending. I just I guess it's when I have the permission and the stage is that permission? Once I'm on the stage, it's like I have permission to perform and every other hour of the day. Although I love performing for my friends and I will if they ask. I feel like that's my time to listen and learn and take in the things that are happening around me so that I can be creative. If you're always performing, then you're not watching because we still are all students. We are all students. I'm interested in knowing that at what point in the meteoric rise did you know I've got to get security guards because not everybody needs security guards. But you need to know how far into it a year later, six months later, because your fans are avid, rabid fans, and I'm not saying that negatively. It's positive I'm a little monster. Not so little, but, uh, well, yeah, being at your house, you're good. Yeah, Michelle is a double D monster, putting out a new broad line. That's what it's called. Double monster bras pattern, that pattern. That shit. You could have monster trucks
