GREAT!! I heard rumors(from other comments in other articles) that she dropped a few pounds. I sure hope not. I am really looking forward to seeing the extra cushion on stage. I sure hope she doesn't forget the words again!

Can't wait to see her perform!! She's a real talent and a beautiful person inside and out. Success is the best revenge against the idiotic haters out there, so Lauren should be having a good laugh when all is said and done. Happy New Year! :)
