It can't be all about somebody else's thing or their issues, it has to be you and then you can deal with the rest of the things in your life."
The 45-year-old singer is in Las Vegas preparing for her residency launching in May. She was welcomed to the city with an elaborate celebration featuring a brigade of 18 trucks displaying each of her No. 1 hits.
