I wanted to make sure that all my outfits were appropriate because there’s young girls watching me, and I want to make sure they can see that you can be beautiful without having to show everything.
If people want a role model, they can have Miley Cyrus!
I think I’m a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it’s authority that I respect.
The pop icons nowadays are very fearless, unapologetic, edgy, and it’s a lot for people to swallow sometimes because people still think pop star equals role model. But it’s almost impossible to walk that line. I’ve struggled with it and I’ve come to the conclusion that I can only live my life for me.
I definitely want to help and teach little girls whenever I can, but then there is the character that I have to play in my videos to tell stories. It’s art. And a lot of the parts that I play aren’t necessarily what I stand for in real life. But it’s hard to differentiate that sometimes.
I’ve got to make really good decisions and that helps me in my real life because it’s that little voice in my head telling me right from wrong. More than just for myself but for girls who are watching me.
