Yesterday, we told you how Courtney Stodden has been living “like a princess,” since marrying 51-year-old Doug Hutchison. But what would the 17-year-old be doing if she hadn’t married him?
“If I hadn’t married Doug, I would still be pursuing my music, definitely,” Courtney told TheFABlife. “I would probably still be involved in acting and learning that. I would probably be down the same path I’m on now, but I wouldn’t be blessed with this gift of great success so early on. But I’d still be pursuing the same thing.”
That’s basically the most self-aware thing we’ve ever heard her say. Courtney has already recorded the three songs streaming on her website and YouTube channel — “Crazy,” “Car Candy” and “We Are America” — and she says there’s more on the way.
“I’m currently in production with some songs, with some singles that are going to be coming out in 2012,” she said. “I’m really excited to hurry up and get those done and share it with you guys.”
As she balances her aspirations with the growing duties of being an object of pop-culture obsession, we wondered if there was any one star whose career she hopes to model hers after.
“My own!” she declared. “I want to be original, unique. And I really want to bring back the classy beautiful edge of old Hollywood. But I want my own career. … The career of Courtney Stodden! Yeah!”
We’ve got even more Courtney to come later this week, so stay tuned!
