BD: One of the most important people in your life is your son, Ryder. Does he understand what is going on with Mom?
MJ: We've explained to him Mommy's working. When he is with my mom, she shows him [me] on TV, "Look, Mommy''s working." He is out with me right now, and he will come with me to rehearsal and see what is going on. ... But he is still so little that he still doesn't truly understand.
BD: You have put a lot of time into prepping for the Idol tour. What are you most looking forward to?
MJ: When I imagine the tour, the first thing that comes into mind is when I get to play Salt Lake—when I walk out on that stage and they say, "Your own Megan Joy." I'm sure I will cry.
