7. I sang the National Anthem at opening day at Dodger Stadium when I was 14 years old. I cried my eyes out in the bathroom before, because I was terrified. I was also wearing a crushed velvet vest and MC Hammer pants. When I walked to my seat afterward, somebody said, "Hey, good job, but this is California. We're casual here." I didn't know what to say to that.

8. I love making lists. Lists of things I need, things I want to do, things I have to do, things I didn't do.

9. When I feel sick, my mom taught me to "eat a steak." I think it works.

10. I'm pretty disorganized but I think I hide it fairly well.

11. I have a passionate love for pizza. Any kind. It can be cardboard and I still think it's good.

12. I'm Italian, German, Portuguese and French.

13. I love dogs pretty much more than anything.

14. I love to cook, but I'm not that great at it.

15. I still keep a journal.

16. I'm going to write a musical.

17. I have a terrible sense of direction. Nobody ever lets me lead on tour. They're smart for doing that.

18. I get my feelings hurt pretty easily, but I try and hide that too.

19. I cry a lot. I don't bother hiding that.

20. I'm recording a new EP with Ben Folds. I can't wait.
