... and then fell off the wagon: "I wasn't working my program, I wasn't ready to get sober. I was sneaking it on planes, in bathrooms, nobody knew. I went on a bender of two months when I was using daily and there was one night where I used a bunch of coke, I popped a few Xanax bars and I started to choke a little bit and my heart started racing. I remember thinking, oh my god, I might be overdosing right now."

5. This Was the Last Time She Drank:

This Was the Last Time She Drank:
"I invited 2 random people and basically just drank with them. I got really really drunk until it was time to get on a flight and I was so drunk that I threw up in the back of the car service on the way to the airport to perform on American Idol. I felt like that was a moment in my career where I didn't care. I just knew that I needed to be high to get through what I was going through at that point."
