You have people come
into your life shockingly and surprisingly.
You have losses that you
never thought you’d experience. You have rejection and you have learn
how to deal with that and how to get up the next day and go on with it.

‘If you’re lucky enough to remember jumping up and down in the middle of the street and screaming and dancing around after the Grammy Awards, that’s something you can’t ever forget. The reason why I celebrate like that, and why I get so emotional, is that I treat it like it’s the last time I’ll ever win anything.’

“I always wanted to know, and I always used to daydream, about what it would be like to stand on a really big stage and sing songs for a lot of people, songs that I had written… Daydreaming was kind of my Number one thing when I was little, because I didn’t have much of a social life going on.”

I don’t Instagram pictures of myself for people to be like ‘Wow, that looks really sexy’ I take pictures of cute kittens, or when the ocean looks nice, or of a funny sign I saw in an airport. This philosophy extends to sexiness IRL as well. I like a more classic look. I always go back to Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Red lipstick and a winged eyeliner — I think that looks nice.

I think some people think [my life] is just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies, which is just funny…it’s not as simple as ponies and rainbows. Though I do love ponies and rainbows.

‘Good memories can leave even more of a mark or a scar on your heart as the bad times, and the bad memories, and the slamming doors, and the fights. So when I say that I write about things that haunt me, they’re not always about bad ghosts.’

“I will always have a fairy-tale complex. And I know that I’m never going to live on top of a tower and his name won’t be Prince Charming, but he’s going to make me laugh and he’s going to be self-deprecating and endearing, and he’ll be fun to hang out with. I think that’s what my idea of Prince Charming has evolved into.”

“I love old buildings with the paint chipping off the walls and my dad’s stories about college. I love the freedom of living alone, but I also love things that make me feel seven again. Back then naivety was the norm and skepticism was a foreign language, and I just think every once in a while you need fries and a chocolate milkshake and your mom.”

I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers.

There are times when I’m caught up in everything and I have to say to myself, “Please feel good; please feel better; everything’s okay; you’re fine; things aren’t falling apart; take a second; get back to a place where you realize that you don’t actually have real problems.” That happens. You never know when those tables are gonna turn… For me, confidence is something that can come crashing down in one second.
