When you're on tour you definitely don't want lots of arguments. It's very important that everybody gets on because you're in close proximity a great deal of the time.
You don't have to be rich and famous. You just have to be an ordinary person, doing extraordinary things. I'd like more people to know that it's there. Women's achievements still aren't recognised enough in many areas.
Just an hour with you, and I understand why we had to meet.
Yesterday I was playing Beethoven's fifth, because I love that.
In America, you watch TV and think that's totally unreal, then you step outside and it's just the same.
My mother bought a piano, put it in the front room, and I just started writing my songs.
Inspiration doesn't really work like that - you're not looking out for it. Inspiration is something that tends to capture you rather than you capture it.
Classical, Romantic, and Baroque music, that's what I really like.
So, the combination of looking at lots of different people and how they react to each other and how they relate to each other and waiting for that inspiration is the thing that allows me to keep writing.
I love to go on tour and perform. I love all the parts of the process.
I've always written in a free, unencumbered way.
So I've had lots of different bands over the years who have stayed with me for certain tours.
I am constantly being told that I have been a big influence for many people, including other musicians.
Right from day one, you know when you've written a good song.
When I was younger I was obsessed with writing, so even if I wanted to listen, I didn't have time.
