How's Grammy nominee Jo Dee Messina coping with her new celebrity?

"There hasn't been anything that's totally blown me away," Messina told AP Radio. "Maybe sometimes when you read the paper and you find out things about yourself not even you knew.

"People make up stories just to make it sound interesting, and I think sometimes people get their feelings hurt by that, including myself, and that's been a hard reality, but for the most part . . . it's been all I thought it would be."

The country singer is confident fans, friends and family can separate fact from fiction.

"Your friends know better and your enemies don't care. So you just kinda roll with it and pray that God makes it not hurt so bad."

Messina is nominated for female country vocal performance.
