I’m on the set of my Billboard cover shoot here in Pasadena. We are so excited to get me all done up. I just got off of a 15-hour plane ride from Sydney, Australia. So they’re covering up some jet lag, but it’s gonna be a fun day and this is a dream come true.

Today with Lainey, she’s such a beautiful, flamboyant country star. We really wanted to give her kind of a spin on that we were thinking like, let’s elevate it to this kind of LA ‘Boogie Nights,’ pool party vibe. So she’s basically like, welcome to my villa. I look amazing. Would you like some lemonade?
