At the Festival Napa Valley over the weekend, "her father was in the crowd while she was performing, and she got emotional talking about how she's still looking for a guy like him, saying, 'Which is why I'm still single,'" said a source. "After taking a big drink of wine, she joked, 'but that's for therapy!'"
