ONE GREAT DAY IN PARIS


"I was engaged in Paris. Mutt was actually recording there with Bryan Adams. He said, 'Why don't you come with me to Paris when I do this? We'll be working in the studio. I'm not going to have time to be with you very much. I want you to be able to enjoy Paris, so I want to invite your sisters along.' He wanted them to be there for that moment. I brought my own engagement ring with me and didn't even know it. He just said, 'Listen, someone's going to bring you a small package. There's a video in there that I've got to see. Could you bring it with you when you come to Paris? And don't lose it!' I said, 'Okay, sure,' and I put this package in my luggage. I had no idea I was bringing my own ring over. We were in a hotel just off the Champs-Elysées. It was 3 o'clock in the morning and he had just come back from the studio. I was still awake and he proposed to me then. Paris is the city of romance! There's something dreamy and surreal about the fact I was engaged in Paris on my first trip there. It made it very special."
