<p>Small talk with Brooke Allison.</p>
<p><strong>What are you up to?</strong></p>
<p>Nothing. Just chilling out.</p>
<p><strong>What is a typical day like for you now?</strong></p>
<p>I just got off the 98 degrees tour, so I’m doing nothing for a few days and then I’m back out doing radio shows. </p>
<p><strong>Was it fun touring with 98 Degrees?</strong></p>
<p><strong>Is performing different now?</strong></p>
<p>Yeah, because people now know the words to my songs.</p>
<p><strong>You were discovered on the site?</strong></p>
<p><strong>Whose idea was it to put your songs up there?</strong></p>
<p>The girl who worked for my manager at the time put me up there.</p>
<p><strong>What song was up there?</strong></p>
<p>It was an original song that my manager at the time had written for me.</p>
<p><strong>Was the studio a new experience for you?</strong></p>
<p>I had really been in the studio my entire life.</p>
<p><strong>Were you always doing pop music?</strong></p>
<p>I’ve always done different kinds of music, but growing up I started in country music. I grew up in Texas so it was bigger, but I discovered pop music and started really getting into that.</p>
<p><strong>Who do you see today that you emulate?</strong></p>
<p>Celine Dion. I’ve looked up to her my entire life.</p>
<p>Her amazing voice and I’ve heard she is really sweet. I like the idea that she can have so much talent and still be really nice.</p>
<p><strong>Had you always been in the business growing up?</strong></p>
<p>I’ve been in the music business since I was three. I’ve been all around Texas, but this is a bit different today.</p>
<p><strong>How have your friends reacted?</strong></p>
<p>They’ve been really supportive.<br />
<strong><br />
Do they ever ask you to tell someone that you might meet, like 98 Degrees, that they like them or something like that?</strong></p>
<p>(laughs) Yeah, all the time.</p>
<p><strong>Do you act like a fan when you meet them too?</strong></p>
<p>I try not to act like it, but I still get starstruck. (laughs)</p>
<p><strong>Do you like the thought of being a role model?</strong></p>
<p>I think that would be cool if that happened.</p>
<p><strong>Do you get nervous onstage?</strong></p>
<p>I’ve never been nervous. I feel more comfortable on stage than even hanging out at the mall.</p>
<p><strong>Are you the same person on stage as off?</strong></p>
<p>I used to be really, really shy. I’m not so much anymore because I deal with people a lot more than I used to, but when I was shy I would be quiet before and change on stage.</p>
<p><strong>Michael Jackson is quoted as saying something like your voice is a gift from god. How did he come to hear you?</strong></p>
<p>I’ve been friends with the Jackson family my entire life.</p>
<p><strong>Was it a big deal still when he said that?</strong></p>
<p>It was something he didn’t have to do. He’s a very nice guy.</p>
<p><strong>With “The Kiss Off (Goodbye)”, are you hoping to get AOL for life for free?</strong></p>
<p>(laughs) I hope so.</p>
<p><strong>It must be nice to have email on the road so that you can contact friends.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Do you keep in contact with fans on your website.</strong></p>
<p>I hang out on the message boards where fans can ask questions and stuff like that.</p>
