“I don’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like”
"Crying is really bad for your vocal cords”
“Heartbreak can definitely give you a deeper sensibility for writing songs. I drew on a lot of heartbreak when I was writing my first album, I didn't mean to but I just did.”
“I have insecurities of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”
“I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I loo. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to the gym.”
There’s only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else? Why would you want to have the same hairstyle as everyone else and have the same opinions as everybody else?
Be brave and fearless to know that even if you do make a wrong decision, you’re making it for good reason.
No matter what you look like, the key is to first of all be happy with yourself. And then you know if you want to try to improve things that you don’t like about yourself, then do it after you appreciate yourself.
I used to fucking love the drama of all of it, but now I’m a mum I only have so much head space. I’ve got to clear a lot of stuff the fuck out, which is really therapeutic, ’cause I can really hold a grudge. Life is so much easier when you don’t hoard your past.
I’m a feminist. I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality.
I don’t want to have plastic surgery. I’m going to look like this forever. Deal with it. Once you deal with it, you feel more calm about it.
When I have nothing to say, I’d rather just not talk.
I don’t think sadness is always devastating. It can be quite uplifting and joyful as well and sometimes, you have to let yourself be sad in order to move forward, so once I sort of started looking at it like that, I was quite happy to do it and also I felt like I didn’t need to let myself go this time in order to access my creativity, so that was good.
The bigger that your career gets, the smaller your life gets.
I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it’s relatable because I’m not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.
I think it’s really important that you don’t think you’re great. Because once you get to that point, you just fuck everything up. You think that everyone’s going to think you’re great all the time, and that’s rubbish.
Being told how to look is about being a product, and I don’t want to be a product.
