 Maybe... she’s got an incredible voice... I heard her sing ‘Wrecking Ball’ before that single came out, and I Tweeted about it a long time ago before it even came out, and I was just so excited about it for her. She’s got a set of pipes that are incredible.

 I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder, and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know that these things would come in handy someday. I’m a sexy girl. So what? I never claimed I was a nun!

 It’s important to be relatable and normal. And I think that what helps with that, for me, is that I had the rug pulled out from underneath my feet so many times. It was like, ‘Listen up, b**ch, you’re not going to get served this on a silver platter — you’ve got to work for it!’ I don’t feel like I can act like an entitled b**ch yet! I still have so much to prove.
