These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
The beautiful Christina Milian may have been the last to get the boot on "Dancing With the Stars," but the newly engaged mother of one has such a delightful disposition, she agreed to take on HuffPost's #nofilter questionnaire:
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Oh, there's so many, what's not? Shoes, rice.
When do you feel most at peace?
In my car, driving. Of course, there's usually traffic in L.A. but yeah, in my car. Sometimes the radio is off, sometimes it's on but I'm just by myself.
What's the most unusual thing you have in your purse?
I have these e-hookahs, they're called Platinum E Hookahs. They're inside my purse right now. They're no-nicotine e-hookahs, I don't know if it's usual or unusual ... It's a vapor stick but it doesn't have nicotine so it's not like a cigarette. I guess it's different.
When's the last time you cried?
[Laughs] Monday! I cried on Monday night, after I got eliminated from the show ("DWTS"). I never thought I would cry, I was more in shock and then I'm all of a sudden hugging everyone and tears are pouring out of my eyes. I cried even a little more on the plane, too.
What or who is overrated right now?
The word "twerk." Not Miley, because I like Miley. The word twerk, though, is overrated. Twerking has been around forever, now if you're just doing it with the fad, yeah, it could be kind of overrated.
Can you twerk?
I've tried a couple times but I'm wearing a skort ... [tugs on her skort]. The only way I know how to do it is if I'm sitting on my knees and I can kind of make this butt cheek go up [laughs].
Watch the clip above to see Milian attempt to twerk.
