You were a judge on ‘American Idol’ this season. You didn’t like it, right?
Oh, I liked it. I just wouldn’t want to do it full-time. I don’t want to tell people they’re not good. It’s just hard. Plus I just think, “Who am I to say?” Bette Midler is one of my favorite performers of all-time, and I remember reading a story that her voice teacher in Hawaii said she’d never make it and I just think I don’t want to be that person who tells the next Bette Midler that she’s never going to make it.
