When I first started out, I was really attracted to having my own sense of style because I started swing dancing, lindy hop, and jitterbug.
I fall in love every time. And I don't really fall in love a lot, but when I do, I fall hard.
At my second record label, they told me and other female artists that some of us were going on the chopping block. I was 19... and it was devastating.
The records are black boxes for me. Like, if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I've never let people's opinions affect the way I write.
