ChickClick: What's your favorite on-the-road outfit?
Dawn Robinson: Something that I like to wear is this big swatch of anaconda-print leather that I wrap around my body. I fasten it with a big safety pin, the kind that you'd see normally on a KILT.

What's your desert-island item for this tour?
I was just talking to some of the backup singers about this over lunch. We were saying how the tour has gotten so crazy, it's hard to keep track of things. I keep forgetting scarves and jewelry in hotel rooms, because we're just going all over the country on this tour.

But I know that it's getting really bad when I think I'm forgetting my piercings. My piercings are my essential accessory. I have a lip piercing, a labrette (piercing below the bottom lip) and a bar in my upper ear.

Thanks a lot! It seems that a piercing is a pretty common thing among the younger crowd!
