You seemed pretty comfortable with the pajama party theme.
I loved it, because it's like a typical day in my off time. Some of my girls come over and just chill, eat popcorn and watch TV.

Is there a NO MEN ALLOWED sign nailed to the door?
I'm not completely into the coed thing. I'd probably just have the girls over. We'd drink some wine, put on movies like The Notebook and just talk about men and our relationships.

What are you like in a relationship?
I'm kind of a homebody. I like to sit at home, cook, clean. I'm not the clubber—I don't drink. My sisters tell me that one day I'll be the perfect wife for someone.

Is the position already filled?
Yes. My sisters are going to kill me for saying it, but I don't care.

Shucks. What's the craziest dare you've done?
At a slumber party, I was dared to run outside in my underwear [laughs]. And I did it.

Doesn't exactly sound like a perfect-wife characteristic.
Of course I wouldn't do that now. We were kids and having a great time.

So who was your celebrity crush back in the day?
I had a fetish with Usher when I was young, when he released "Nice and Slow." It's weird now, because we actually know Usher on a personal level, so now we're like best friends.

Have you ever told him?
No, I wouldn't. He used to tease me, try and hook me and his little brother up, and it was just funny.

Usher's baby bro or not, how can a guy get a private party popping?
A nice massage with some baby oil would be lovely. Maybe some Luther Vandross. That would get the mood completely right.
