•Play games you can win: "I'm best at Scattergories. I can think of random words that nobody else will."
•Stock up on Oreos: "I eat them after the show. If I ate them before, you'd see all the chocolate in my teeth."
•Make time for shopping: "We make Target runs." Recent purchases: pillows and DVDs. Total DVDs on bus? "Probably 500."
•Punk fellow travelers: "We had a bus driver once who let us talk on his CB, and trucks would drive by and we'd moon'em."
•Karaoke the competition's songs: "I've been known to do Britney Spears awful. No, not on purpose."
•Don't have MTV cameras around 24/7: "I love not having to worry about having a mike on, or turning it off before I pee."
•Avoid leather pants onstage: "I used to split my pants every time I'd perform in New York."
•Get personal with fans: "This lady told me she got a tattoo on her butt. We had a five-minute conversation about if it hurt and if she felt weird having her butt up in the air. I think it's of her boyfriend's name. Thank God it's not Jessica."
•Wake up in another town and repeat: "It feels like Groundhog Day. It's the same thing every day, which is kind of like going to work from 9 to 5. It's like being normal—but really, it's not."
