on SiriusXM's Hits 1 Hollywood radio show last month. "But I'm excited to sit with Jennifer because she said something really cool. She was a mentor on the last live season that I was there and she goes, 'Sometimes, you know, people can be as talented as they want, but if they don't have a work ethic then you're not going to make it.' And she's like, 'You're only as great as you're willing to work hard.'"
