Getting back to that child and giving the child what the child may have missed - the reassurance of a nourishing and accepting love, a love that says you are special - is hard work.

We had four dogs, and I would climb in the bushes and sit down and speak with them....And that`s how I dealt with my life in the very, very beginning, when I was a kid.

Life is a journey, and I`m still walking it. And, like everyone, I`m going to have some days that are better than others, some days that are tougher than others.

We`re all driven to premieres or nightclubs and seen the rope separating those who can enter and those who can`t. Well, there`s also a velvet rope we have inside of us, keeping others from knowing our feelings. In this album I`m trying to expose and explore thsoe feelings. I`m inviting you inside my barrier. During my life I`ve been on both sides of the rope. At times, especially during my childhood, I felt left out and alone. At times I felt misunderstood....But no human heard those feelings expressed. They stayed buried in the past. But now the truth has to come out, and for me, the truth takes the form of a song. - on her 1997 recording "The Velvet Rope".

I`m not trying to be malicious. The only thing that Rene actually did with Velvet Rope is the production of the opening of the show.
