Q&A with American Idol's Allison Iraheta
SR: What would you say is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
AI: It wasn’t really much of advice; it was mostly that they pointed out the fact that I am who I am, you know? It’s like, do you want to get out there and know who you really are and who you want to be as an artist? They told me that, "We know who you are, and we know what you want to do." And I really stuck with that, because it’s really, like I said with Pink. She’s stayed true to herself since the beginning. And, them telling me that they know who I want to be in the future is already, now, a boost, a confidence boost.
