When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.
I don’t like to gamble, but if there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, it’s myself.
I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it.
I felt like it was time to set up my future, so I set a goal. My goal was independence
It is so liberating to really know what I want, what truly makes me happy, what I will not tolerate. I have learned that it is no one else’s job to take care of me but me.
My biggest thing is to teach not to focus on the aesthetic. It’s really about who you are, and the human being, that makes you beautiful.
Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health — take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish.
I think it’s healthy for a person to be nervous. It means you care – that you work hard and want to give a great performance. You just have to channel that nervous energy into the show.
If you don’t take the time to think about and analyze your life, you’ll never realize all the dots that are all connected.
We all have our imperfections. But I’m human and you know, it’s important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.
I wanted to sell a million records, and I sold a million records. I wanted to go platinum; I went platinum. I’ve been working nonstop since I was 15. I don’t even know how to chill out.
I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.
I always try to be myself. Ever since I was an introverted kid, I’d get on stage and be able to break out of my shell.
To be able to travel the world, especially to places I never thought I’d be… it’s really, you know, still fascinating for me.
Come take my hand / I won’t let you go / I’ll be your friend / I will love you so deeply / I will be the one to kiss you at night / I will love you until the end of time.
I don’t really like to call myself a brand, and I don’t like to think of myself as a brand. I’m a singer, a songwriter, a musician and a performer. And an actress, and all the other things that I do. When you add it all together, some might call it a brand, but that’s not my focus.
If you’re with the right person, it brings out the best version of you.
I don’t feel like I have to please anyone. I feel free. I feel like I’m an adult. I’m grown. I can do what I want. I can say what I want. I can retire if I want. That’s why I’ve worked hard.
I’m a human being and I fall in love and sometimes I don’t have control of every situation.
Love is an endless act of forgiveness. Forgiveness is me giving up the right to hurt you for hurting me.
I don’t know much about fighting, but I know I will fight for you.
