The Jewish Mother Interview

One of my fave interviews is at The Jewish Journal with Gail Zimmerman.

JN: I loved the version of Muse’s “Starlight” you sang on Good Morning America and can’t wait to hear you perform it at tonight’s concert. AL: Thank you. JN: The song’s lyric, “Black holes and revelations.” AL: Isn’t that beautiful? JN: What’s the biggest black hole you’re afraid of falling into? AL: Obscurity. That would be a shame. That would be a real shame. If I have anything to say about it, it won’t happen no matter what goes on with my career.

JN: What’s the biggest revelation you’ve had? AL: You know, at the risk of sounding a little bit cliché, that anything’s possible. I really think that, to a point, if you dream something and really visualize it, I think that it can come true. I really do believe that now.

JN: I know your mom’s going to be working for you. AL: She’s going to be helping me with administrative stuff. Yeah. JN: What’s the best piece of unsolicited advice she’s given you lately? AL: You know, it’s funny [but] my mom doesn’t give me a lot of advice these days. I think it’s kind of in the vein of an unspoken kind of advice. It’s more of a support thing. My dad’s really Mr. Advice. JN: There’s always one parent who’s like that. AL: Yeah, yeah yeah. My dad’s my teacher. Teacher-parent.
