Bret Michaels did an interview and performed "Nothing To Lose" at Popeater offices. A few excerpts from the chat below:

Going From 'Rock of Love' to 'Celebrity Apprentice': "After three seasons of 'Rock of Love,' it was a nice break for my lips. I don't want too much of a break... a little suck face break, but I wanted to go in and show there's another side that can work real hard and get it done, and I'm a life-long juvenile diabetic, so taking four injections a day and, as I just did right before this, probably six to eight blood tests a day. I really have a strong cause and I'm in there fighting for it."

His new single 'Nothing to Lose,' featuring Miley Cyrus: "It's a song that I originally wrote myself, and ended up in the studio... Miley Cyrus is redoing 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn,' which is how this all started. I've known her and her family for a while ... and she's one of the the few pop superstars that will make it through for another 15 or 20 years, because she can sit down and play piano, she can play guitar ... I played her 'Nothing to Lose,' and everyone was in the studio and she was in there with Liam and she's like, 'That's a beautiful song.' She said, 'Do you mind if I go in and sing some low harmonies and stuff on there.'"

On the Song's Controversy: "I want to straighten out a certain myth that was blogged. There is no weirdness, there is no strangeness. We were in the studio with about 20 people. It is not a duet. I believe the line that's coming is where I say in the song... I'm singing about a woman and part of myself, 'we slowly get undressed, we both know better than this,' and she sings, 'Yeah she does.' She's singing a harmony about the situation that me and this girl are going through, not what me and Miley are going through."
