Be brave and fearless to know that even if you do make a wrong decision, you're making it for good reason.
For the first time in a decade I'm ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to really truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough. I'll learn to love you lot eventually.
Being told how to look is about being a product, and I don't want to be a product.
I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears.
I don't really need to stand out, there's room for everyone. Although I haven't built a niche yet, I'm just writing love songs.
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.
I don't want to be a celebrity. I don't want to be in people's faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven't even known I'm on.
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.
I get so nervous on stage I can't help but talk. I try. I try telling my brain: stop sending words to the mouth. But I get nervous and turn into my grandma. Behind the eyes it's pure fear. I find it difficult to believe I'm going to be able to deliver.
I have insecurities of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me.
I like having my hair and face done, but I'm not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.
I no longer buy papers or tabloids or magazines or read blogs. I used to. But it was just filling up my day with hatred.
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.
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'm ballsy. I have guts. I'm not afraid of anyone. I think that's what makes me feel powerful.
I'm nervous whenever I perform.
I'm scared of audiences. One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous, I escaped out the fire exit. I've thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels, I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.
I'm very confident. Even when I read people saying horrible stuff about my weight.
I've never been more normal than I am now.
I've never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like, 'I need to look like that to be a success.'
Life is so much easier when you don't hoard your past
My body doesn't have any rhythm, you know. I've got quite good rhythm when I'm singing but my feet are very much two left feet.
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.
The bigger that your career gets, the smaller your life gets.
There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready.
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?
When I have nothing to say, I'd rather just not talk.
