Johnson is the star of the Canadian TV series, Instant Star, which concerns a 15-year-old who wins a talent contest and must deal with overnight fame.
The show debuts in the U.S. on the N cable channel on Friday (Jul. 1) and Johnson says she thinks its very realistic.
So much so that the Pat Benatar soundalike is very cautious about signing with record labels for her real-life singing career.
Johnson says shes had offers but only from companies that, as she puts it, offered me the music THEY wanted me to do. Shes refused because, she admits, Im pretty fiesty.
An Instant Star soundtrack album featuring five Johnson originals is a hit in Canada and may hit U.S. stores by summers end.
Meanwhile, she is working on another album that is more in the style of her hero, Rickie Lee Jones.
