Polished Edge: Mel B of ‘America’s Got Talent’ on NBC
Q: Where is home?
A: L.A. is home. It’s where the kids go to school. I lived in Australia for two years. It was fun. I am an L.A. girl. In L.A., you can be work-work-work or completely relax. Here in New York, if I was just relaxing, I felt like I should be doing something.
Q: As you judge the hopefuls for “America’s Got Talent,” what are you looking for?
A: Someone supertalented, someone who makes us say, ‘Wow! We are seeing someone doing something incredible.”
Q: You stand up to Howard Stern. What’s your relationship like?
A: Howard and I have a little bit of a go at each other. I got him to a club. It was, “Put your hands in the air.” Nick (Cannon) was DJ’ing. I tell him, “You are not the boss of my buzzer.”
Q: That’s a beautiful rock on your finger. What is it?
A: It’s a yellow diamond. It got bigger through the years. I can’t believe I am married seven years. I married my best friend, my everything.
Q: What do you like to do with your kids?
A: Hang out at the pool and hang out at the house. We have a movie theater.
Q: When did you know you wanted to be an entertainer?
A: When I was young, I would pretend to have a radio show for my family and make them applaud.
Q: Do you have a guiding philosophy?
A: My first tattoo: qi -- spirit, heart and mind.
