Sleepless in Los Angeles and random thoughts on The Voice
Lying here in bed in Los Angeles and I am wide awake. I flew out here this morning from Austin, slept on the plane, then napped after lunch, and I’m just not ready to sleep. Which always sucks, but more so tonight because I have to be in the studio writing tomorrow morning.
I’m really excited to be back out here to write and I have some great sessions lined up. I can’t wait to start working on a new album. I would love to be in the studio by the fall. Everyone keeps asking me about what I’m doing or if I’m signed yet or what Christina is like in real life… I’m still me. Still Nakia. I’m writing new songs and playing them live with my band around Texas. Oh and as for Christina… She’s Christina! What do you think she’s like? Sweet, sexy, amazingly talented singer, driven, and of course… A true diva. I had very little interaction with her when the cameras were off but I think that was true for everyone on her team even.
Watching The Voice this season is tough. First there’s the timing thing. I rehearse on Monday nights. Or I’m performing. Or I’m living my life, etc… So I catch little bits here and there and most of that is on NBC.com. Then there’s the frustrating thing. I miss television. It was fun and it came very natural to me, so watching the show reminds me of how much I miss it. “It” being mainly the performances and rehearsals and interaction with the amazing crew we had and of course my fellow season 1 singers. There are other things I miss about it too, like the live audience and the yes, the cameras (I’m just a little vain… lol), but it was a very special moment in time for me. I’m glad it happened when it did and it will always be a part of my story.
Hmmm… I’m actually making myself sleepy, so this must really be boring you. Haha I’m gonna try to sleep while I can.
