Norah Jones

Norah Jones becomes her own person

Wong began the project — his first film shot in America — with Jones in mind. "She's a natural," he told The New York Times last November.

For Jones it was a rewarding experience, and she'd do it again, but wouldn't want movies to interfere with her music. While filming, she had to work 14-hour days. "I became a musician because I liked the idea of sleeping late and just jammin'," she admits, laughing. "I don't know if I want to give up that lifestyle."

But back to looking ahead 40 years... "I don't know if people are always going to buy my CDs," she says, sounding like the most relaxed person in the world. "[But] I'm not going to stop. If people care or not, that remains to be seen. But it doesn't bother me if they don't." She's made enough money with jazz-tinged easy listening. "I've been lucky enough that I can do this the rest of my life, and I don't have to depend on selling any more records. You just gotta make sure you do what you want to do."

Norah Jones performs Tuesday, June 12, at Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana, 713-629-3700.
