Personal Quotes:

  • I've always done whatever I want and always been exactly who I am.
  • In the public eye, girls and women with strong perspectives are hated. If you're a girl with an opinion, people just hate you. There are still people who are afraid of successful women, and that's so lame.
  • Words are more powerful than some noises. Noises won't last long. Lyrics are so important, and people don't realize that.
  • I like to be in control of how I look and how I feel and how I act.
  • I'm gonna make what I want to make, and other people are gonna like what they're gonna like. It doesn't really matter.
