The 40th annual American Music Awards took place on Nov. 18, 2012, at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Here is what this American Music Awards star said backstage in the American Music Awards press room.
Did you really grab Justin Bieber’s butt?
It was fun. I hope it was worth it for Bieber. I did grab his butt. I’m single. I think that’s cougar rape, if you ask me. It was firm, just like you would expect.
Who are you wearing tonight?
Dolce and Gabbana. Those rich a**holes.
What can you say about World AIDS Day? Do you have any advice on how to raise awareness for AIDS prevention?
As a celebrity, I feel like I’m in a pageant right now, FYI. Use as much of social media as you can. I would spread awareness through that, since it seems to impact so many people on such a large scale. So I would probably put out some good messaging.
Is there a song that you’re sick of hearing?
I’m a little over [Carly Rae Jepsen’s] “Call Me Maybe,” but I love her. That’s all. Because guys come up to me and go, “Call me maybe,” in a bar. Oh, you’re so original.
Are there any toys or books that your son really likes?
I really zeroed in on doing imagination play with him, so I’ll buy him two-by-fours and blankets, and tell him to go create something. He doesn’t watch TV. He doesn’t really play video games. Everything is through the world of his imagination. And it’s made such a huge difference. So there isn’t a brand necessarily. I just let him use his imagination.
What inspired you to grab Justin Bieber’s butt? Was it spontaneous for you to do that?
Well, it better be, because that’s just weird if it isn’t. Yeah, I gave him a kiss, and there was a lot of lipstick. And then my partner Luke tried to wipe it off. And I was like, “No, a**hole, I did that for a reason: so he’d remember me.” I couldn’t help it. He was just so delicious. So little. I just want to tear his hat off and eat it. I just loved it.
