“I feel like you can be the best role model by being yourself.”

“I never said I was a ‘good girl.’  I’m not a bad girl.  I’m just normal, and that’s what I’m going to be.  There’s no bad girl with whips and chains that’s going to come out.  I think people like me because I was myself.”

“In fairness to everybody who I’ve worked with in the past, if you would have given me these same songs at the age of 19 or 20, it wouldn’t have sounded like this.  You have to live and have experiences in order to have what comes with a lot of these songs – you can’t just not have had circumstances where you’ve had to be bold and confident.  You have to have that in life in order to sing it.”

“My winning is getting to perform.  That’s my victory.”

“The question I love to get asked is: ‘What’s the hardest part of your job?’  And literally, the answer is probably real sad, but it’s to just be me.  Like, it’s really hard, because I think people, you know, have a set idea of what a pop star should be.”

“I don’t want to hide the fact that I am a successful, strong-minded, opinionated person.  Sometimes I get it wrong, but I learn – I have a voice.”

“My friends and family are my support system.  They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and they are there for me in the good and bad times.  Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what’s keeping my head above the water.”

“I sound like such a tool, but becoming a mother has made me next-level confident.  I’ve never felt more empowered.”

“I want to be the one steering the boat.  It’s cool if it sinks and it doesn’t work out, but I don’t want it to sink with me relying and thinking somebody else is going to make something happen for me and compromise to a point to where it’s not me.  You only get one life.”
