I definitely think we're living in a world or generation where we need constant gratification and adoration with Instagram and likes, and we base everything on attention.
To have the ability to look back on the problems that weren't big problems after all is something I think we can all learn from.
The thing I needed to learn about Miranda was where her motivation comes from when she gets upset. There's been a few times where Miranda's a brat or crying online, and it seems very surface level, and I think that I needed to learn where her insecurities came from, because online she just comes across as kind of bratty.
I watched a lot of old movies, and a lot of Carol Burnett and Andy Kaufman.
Clowns are meant to make people smile. That's my goal.
Miranda is confidently untalented at singing. Very off-putting. Shrill. But she thinks she's wonderful, so power to her.
I've always been very open and very honest with my fans. I want them to know that I'm genuine, and I am who I am, and I'm not faking it for the camera.
My favorite movies were 'Singin' in the Rain' and stuff that had a more classic comedy type feel, that more slapsticky stuff. It's the comedy I've gravitated towards.
The things that I gravitate toward in film and TV are things that make me laugh but then break my heart.
I want to tell Miranda's story more broadly than what I have been in these five-minute videos on the Internet. She can live in a longer format.
I feel so lucky to have the career that I have. I can travel the world and be a goofball and make people laugh.
Whenever a hater said they hated something about Miranda, I'd do it more.
I hope that memes jump out of our computers in the future.
I have a whole new perspective on pregnancy and motherhood now that I'm experiencing it. Just because it's so hard and so confusing and so exciting. Women are so amazing that their bodies can do this and that they're strong enough to do this. I can't believe almost every woman goes through this, because it's so hard.
I started out poking fun at this YouTube thing.
Miranda is extremely tacky. I personally want to edit my videos well, but I have to keep Miranda's character in mind, so there are bad angles, flashy cuts, and sparkles everywhere.
I love music, and playing ukulele and singing makes me really happy.
