Sindy: I know you're used to being in front of a camera, but do you ever get a little stage fright when you're singing in front of a crowd?
Taryn Manning: Nah! I thrive. I can't get enough on stage. At a lot of our shows, we only get 15 minutes because we aren't headlining and I always want more. Whenever I am up there, my goal is to make a mark and make you not forget me. My whole thing right now, is that I consider myself a musician and a songwriter, but a lot of people in the industry consider me an actress first and there is a lot of stigma with that. You know, actors turned singers and all... my goal is to be like, you may pre-judge me but watch this - I can sing. I can perform and I can make you watch. It's my own thing I like to prove.

Sindy: Have your fans been supportive of your new career in music or are they kinda like the industry peeps?
Taryn Manning: If I go on my Web site, I see things like 'I love you in this movie and I love you in this record.' So, I think they're pretty supportive. It's good.

Sindy: Your fans at Kidzworld love the album! I know they're happy you became a singer.
Taryn Manning: Really? That's great! I love that we made a record that kids can enjoy. It may not be the cleanest record but it's also not filled with too much junk. I think it's really positve at times and has a good message.

    That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
