"Brandon is not my other half. He's a whole and I'm a whole," the 32-year-old singer tells Redbook magazine. "I've never believed in someone taking care of me, and that's probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability."
That being said, she does see the importance of keeping her marriage a priority. "I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex," she quips. "That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality—take care of yourself first!"
"I don't obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it," she says. "There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism – that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism."
