She said having a 9-pound 10-ounce baby boy has given her "a whole new level of confidence." But once her doctor gave her the OK to work out again after the birth, she started training 5-6 days a week. 

The "Body Party" singer went on, saying she was on a strict food plan but did allow some burgers and fries as well.

As for music and her newest album, Jackie, she said it sums up her life right now and is sonically about the things she wanted to talk about. 

"I was very clairvoyant about it," she said.
