Who says soul has only one colour?
It's like, 'You're not allowed to change. That's not fair. We like you like this.' But I don't. So let me expand and express myself.
People started saying I was ignoring my country, making up stories about me. Ludicrous things, like that I throw tea on my assistants.
If you remember one thing from talking to me, remember this: I am just a girl who makes noises - and I'm incredibly lucky that people happen to like those noises.
For me, personally, Mind, Body and Soul is my real debut.
Life is good. Or at least, it's always interesting.
I'm 19, I'm a girl, I'm very young, I like all sorts of different things, I like all sorts of different styles of music, I like all sorts of different styles of clothes, I like all sorts of different colors of hair.
If you capture the first thought that you have when you're creating, and then play that to people, it's kind of like the listeners are part of that beginning. And that's the most exciting part.
I guess this year I'm going to find out if I'm good enough or not. If I'm not, I don't care. I'll do something else, it's not a biggie.
Basically, I was a freak show. This kid with this big old voice. I was a travelling freak.
I don't like listening to music that isn't real.
I feel so, so lucky. Lucky because of many things.
I made my new album 'Colour Me Free!' in a week with my own money.
I wanted people not to look at me as a little girl, but I was a little girl so how could I ask the world not to?
People forget what it was like to be young, the stuff I'm expressing now is for the first time.
