Being bold or daring means…
"Finding your own style and not toning it down for anyone or anything. Don’t go home for Christmas and put on something you wouldn’t wear. Go to your boyfriend’s parents' house. Go grocery shopping, and don’t tone it down. I would never misrepresent myself; I just would never do it. Stay true to what you do, every time you do it."
The most daring thing I ever did
"Last year, when I went to Costa Rica with my dad, I had long brown hair. There were all of these really cool orange flowers all over the resort we were staying at, and I told him, 'When I get home, I’m going to cut my hair off and dye it orange.' So, the morning after I got home from Costa Rica, I just went straight to the salon and got my friend to cut it off and dye it. Now, I feel myself. What I had before, there was nothing going on there."
How I stand my ground in the music world
"It took maybe two or three years for me to find a way to figure out if I’m the right person for certain things. It’s a big undertaking. I used to not know how to say no. I played a lot of things that I didn’t want to play, and then I realized I’m making the wrong impression on people who might be hearing me for the first time. So, now I know I have to stick to what I do play and not go all over the place. That’s when everything got easier and took off."
