The results? Roughly more of the same, although if anyone’s gotten Godney to budge and offer anything beyond her industry standard answers (“Cool,” “Fun,” “Sex & The City,” “Vanilla Candles”), it’s Mr. PJ.
Five tantalizing tidbits below… (Make sure to head over to Stylist now for the full interview!)
What was the last book you read?
The Mastery Of Love [sub-titled A Practical Guide To The Art Of Relationship by Don Miguel Ruiz]. It’s basically an analysis of love and what it means to love. It goes through all the different aspects of love. Who you are as a person, knowing yourself before you even attempt to love anyone else; that sort of thing. It’s really well-written and thought-provoking.
You’ve said in the past that it’s a thirst for success that defines you. Has your definition of success changed over the years?
For me, success is a state of mind. I feel like success isn’t about conquering something, it’s being happy with who you are.
When you’re performing, what are you thinking about?
What do I think about? Wow. Usually I’m so in the moment of being there with the audience that I don’t really have time to think about anything. You’re just focused on the tunes and what you’re doing and interacting with the audience and making sure you’re on cue. It’s more like a yoga state of mind, you know?
What music are you listening to at the moment?
Well I usually listen to a lot of hip-hop in my dressing room when I’m getting ready to go on stage, so Jay-Z a lot recently. And a lot of rock stuff like Aerosmith. That really gets me going and pumps me up. And then of course, there’s Jessie J and Adele.
Who’d be your dream musical collaboration at this stage?
I like Gwen Stefani.
Gwen Stefani…could you even imagine?! Britney, how are you always so perfect? Let’s allow our imaginations run wild with one of my favorite Brit Brit mash-ups from back in the day: “Tic Toxic”!
