LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Michelle Branch has big plans for the summer _ taking it easy.

``I'm going to be taking a break, probably through summer just (to) try to relax because I've been so busy the last few years,'' Branch told reporters recently, according to AP Radio.

Still, the 20-year-old singer has no regrets about becoming a celebrity at such a young age.

``I get to do something that I love, and not only that, but it's a lot of fun,'' she said. ``I don't think I missed out on anything at all.''

Branch says she'll start work again in the fall and make plans for a new album. Those plans won't necessarily include another collaboration, even though the one she did with Carlos Santana, ``The Game of Love,'' earned her a Grammy Award.

``I'm probably going to collaborate with the swimming pool this summer,'' she said with a laugh.
