I remember when I was in school, they would ask, 'What are you going to be when you grow up?' and then you'd have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride.
You know, I was chubby when I was a little girl. And I have all those issues everyone else has. But I try not to. And I've learned over the years that it's such a waste of time. And people like me whether I'm a little bit fatter or not.
Before, I was really passive, all I cared about was being in love with my boyfriend. I didn't have any creative power, nothing. I don't know that person any more.
Writing songs is super intimate. It's a bit like getting naked.
Life is short and you've got to get the most out of it.
My songs are basically my diaries. Some of my best songwriting has come out of time when I've been going through a personal nightmare.
You can't plan anything, right? You can try.
Being in a band you can wear whatever you want - it's like an excuse for Halloween every day.
I don't have a strong sense of self-worth unless I'm doing something.
At a certain point I'm going to want to have a family.
I'd like to have no rules and eat what I want, but I've learned over the years that I'm so disappointed when I can't wear the clothes I want to wear.
My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That's a huge, huge thing.
I think I've been able to fool a lot of people because I know I'm a dork. I'm a geek.
If I wasn't even famous or had any success, I would still wake up and put tons of make-up on, and put on a cool outfit. That's always been who I've been my whole life, so that's never gonna change. I love fashion. I love getting dressed up. I love Halloween, too.
It was such a turning point to find that I had a talent and I had something to contribute, somewhere.
