I think it's fair to say that besides your incredible talent, a portion of your success comes from your very unique, incredibly easy to identify voice.
Was there ever a time that you disliked your voice? What do you think about it now?
It's incredibly difficult for me to hear myself on a recording, speaking.
Singing - that
I can listen to, and critique it and listen to it.
I feel like I sound like a bug too. I feel like a combination of Betty Boop, Marilyn Monroe, and a 5 year old. And my voice will never have balls in it. And that's good. It is a unique voice. It is probably a voice that some find, I'm sure, annoying (in fact, I'm sure cuz I've read it) but it is mine.
And more so than when I walk down the street it's when I speak that people recognize me.
So I think surely it's probably hurt me in my career, but mostly it's been a blessing. It's unique. I'm never going to be Demi Moore. It's never gonna happen. She's amazing and got her sound. But I'm never going to be a sex call operator. It's never going to happen.
