In an all-encompassing interview, the American Idol judge opens up about a number of personal issues, from supporting her family to looking "naked" in this photo shot.

Read on for excerpts from her Elle Q&A...

Her advice to women: "Even if you're doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss,. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want - and don't allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge."

Her difficult childhood: "I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. So I've always put up this wall - it was a self-defense mechanism growing up - because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It's sad."

Her feelings on posing without any pink lipstick or wigs on: "I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."

Her plans to take over the universe: "My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house. Now I realize, Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire. I'm thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination - in terms of providing for my family - is absolutely my goal."
