The short hair fits my personality more. I think maybe, with long hair, it was a role - I was playing dress-up a bit.
Music is a personal preference. Everyone's free to connect and like whatever they want.
My aunt is a newscaster in Lubbock, Texas, and she got a letter that said, 'Natalie Maines will be shot dead at their show in Dallas, Texas,' with the date of our concert. It was freaky to see that in writing.
I didn't grow up listening to country music. I pretty much grew up rebelling against country music.
Writing for me can be homework. I do get a lot from it in the end. But I hate doing it.
Growing up, I thought I was going to be Madonna. I wanted to be a pop star. I wanted to dance and sing.
I don't want to put my fate in country music fans; I'm too stubborn.
I hope I don't have a big ego. I try to keep that in check. But I am a prideful person, I will say.
I'm not good at multi-tasking.
It's very scary to me that people actually think we should just follow our leaders. If we can't learn from our history, we're nowhere.
I sing all the time. But maybe nobody's hearing it, because I'm singing in my car or in my house or whatever. I don't need the roar of the crowd, and I don't need to hear cheers to feel validated.
To me, I was right from the beginning, because it's my right as an American to speak up and question our president, have my point of view, have my opinion, question what I want to question, and say what I want to say about our government.
I hate thinking about clothes. I hate shopping.
People do look at it as an insult that I say I don't listen to country music, which cracks me up.
I knew I didn't want to make a country record just because that's not really what I would have ever made as a solo artist.
