“I am sad to be ending the “50 words or less” contest, as of July 22nd. If you entered the contest prior to July 22, your entry will still be considered. While I don’t blame ANYONE for wanting to go backstage and meet any or all of the top 10 Idols, I prefer my time and energy be spent on Megan’s Fans! “。
“I haven’t received a confirmation email from AI either and my daughter and I are shaking in our boots worrying the passes won’t be there tomorrow when we get there.
I went out and bought a ton of makeup to do my eyes like Adam’s are for the tour. I will probably end up looking like a clown and wash it all off. LOL. I’m making an Adam t-shirt tomorrow morning and putting a blue streak in my hair. If I don’t chicken out that is.
I experimented with dark blue nail polish yesterday covered in sparkles and liked it so much I never took it off. It’s so cool. And I don’t care who thinks it looks stupid on an old fart like me. LOL.
I am so nervous. REALLY nervous! And now after hearing that Adam didn’t come out to the barricades to sign autographs, I’m even more nervous. I hope he is all right.
OMG! I am meeting Adam Lambert in less than 24 hours! “
REALITY ROCKS: You are looking fantastic!
MEGAN: [posing] Oh, this is a video?
REALITY ROCKS: Yes.
MEGAN: Oh, I thought this was a picture! I'm all [poses]. So stupid! [laughs]
REALITY ROCKS: No, I'm not allowed to take pictures! They told us not to, to save time.
MEGAN: Oh! Okay.
REALITY ROCKS: So you're looking very Marilyn Monroe-esque tonight.
MEGAN: You know, my hair's curly for the show. I knew that everyone was going to be panicking [that her hair would not be done in time for the concert], especially the hairstylist, so I said, "I don't care, just get it going!"
REALITY ROCKS: I would imagine--as a girl myself, obviously!--that that would be one of the most fun things about being on the tour...the costumes, getting to dress up. Are you enjoying all that?
MEGAN: Definitely, it's really fun. It's new for me. It's not exactly my true style; when I do things after the show, it won't look anything like this. But it's definitely really, really fun.
REALITY ROCKS: So do you sort of have a dual personality, like "Casual Megan" and "Dressy Megan"?
MEGAN: Yeah, you could say that! Laid-back Megan and then super-glamorous Megan! Sure!
REALITY ROCKS: So a lot of fans want me to ask you...you just played your home state [Utah]. How was that? That must have been a blast!
MEGAN: That was one of the best nights of my life. I had almost 200 friends and family members there that even came back to the meet-and-greet afterwards. And tons of fans there, besides them. It was "my night."
REALITY ROCKS: Was there sort of a vibe of like, "local girl makes good"? Like, are you the hero of your town now?
MEGAN: Exactly! Yeah! They're really supportive, they said really super-nice things about me...it was great!
REALITY ROCKS: So when I last interviewed you, you weren't able to reveal the songs you were doing on the tour. But now we know what you're doing. Tell me why you chose those songs, which I think are perfectly suited for you.
MEGAN: Thank you! I chose [Corinne Bailey Rae's] "Put Your Records On" and [Amy Winehouse's] "Tears Dry On Their Own." I had to pick uptempo songs since I am a "starter." I really wanted to sing something slow to show off my voice more, but I've still gotta wait, I guess. But Amy, she's just jazzy, she's in-your-face, she's sexy and hip, and I was all about it, so that was fine. And then the other one, I just truly enjoyed doing it on the show, it pushed me along in the competition, so I've got serious love for it.
REALITY ROCKS: It's kind of ironic, because when you were on the show, weren't the judges saying you should do an Amy Winehouse song?
MEGAN: Well, I got both! Like, they told me to sing it--they said Amy Winehouse or Adele. And then when I sang it for them on a time when they didn't air it, they said, "You shouldn't do that. You should sway from the artists that you sound like." So I got mixed signals, and it was just stupid!
REALITY ROCKS: Well, yeah, the judges tend to do that in general.
REALITY ROCKS: Probably for good TV. But you know, American Idol is up for eight Emmys.
REALITY ROCKS: I think this cast has a lot to do with that.
MEGAN: Yeah, yeah.
REALITY ROCKS: The Amazing Race has won [Best Reality Show] six times...
MEGAN: Six times?
REALITY ROCKS: This time, I want American Idol to win. I think you all should go and perform at the Emmys.
MEGAN: I think that would be incredible, and I know that we would all love to!
REALITY ROCKS: Yeah, I think that should happen! So, obviously this tour is going through till September?
REALITY ROCKS: What are your plans afterwards?
MEGAN: Um, I want to make a few albums...
REALITY ROCKS: A few?
MEGAN: I want to make alternative jazz, I want to do children's music, and I want to do hip-hop and some bluegrass.
REALITY ROCKS: Hip-hop? The other things I knew about, but I didn't know about the hip-hop.
MEGAN: I love hip-hop so much!
REALITY ROCKS: That's a side of you that didn't really come out on the show.
MEGAN: No. But you know, the show didn't show, I'd say, good 80 percent of me. [19 Entertainment person tells me to wrap it up...boo!]
REALITY ROCKS: It's interesting because you say that you're sort of a "starter" for the tour. Is there any pressure in that, in way you're kind of kicking off the show? You're setting the tone--you and Michael [Sarver]. How do you do that? You're sort of...not the "warmup" act, but you're setting the tone.
MEGAN: Yeah, I'm a warm-upper!
REALITY ROCKS: What I mean is, you're the ones [you and Michael] that need to get the crowd going [because you perform first].
MEGAN: Yeah, well, fortunately, the American Idol crowd is pumped up enough as it is. They're coming and they're excited the whole entire night. But I mean, my songs are "up," I'm trying to get the fans up, I'm happy and excited, and I hope I can spread that vibe out to the audience. But for the most part, they already have that vibe!
REALITY ROCKS: But I'm sure you keep it going!
MEGAN: I try to keep it up!
REALITY ROCKS: That's great. Well, I'm going to let you go, but I will be in the audience, all pumped up tonight!
MEGAN: Okay, cool, cool!
