“I’ve apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It’s been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I’ve found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn’t mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I’ve just added more things to my list.”
"When I’m deeply hurt, I usually respond by writing exactly how I feel in a song, but I just haven’t been devastated in the last couple of years. I made the decision to spend time on my own and figure out who I am.”
You are gonna have people who are going to see the depth from which you approached a song. The fact that you put real emotions into it, and that that’s valuable, and that’s good, and that’s real. And then you’re gonna have people who are gonna say "Oh, you know, like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends…."
“I’m not going to compromise the happiness and independence that I found just for just anybody. The idea of a date gives me a partial panic attack. It includes 40 paparazzi camera shooting through windows at us, that’s not relaxing or alluring for me. That makes me want to crawl under the couch and hide! But I’m fine! I have two cats. That’s all I need.”
"When I meet my fans, it’s not like meeting a stranger. It’s like saying hello to someone I already know is on the same page as me. I just feel so thankful to have that understanding between us.”
