It is very grand and sumptuous and awesome to look at but it was really about the characters for me.
I feel like I've come out of this grown up, maybe because I live through the character vicariously and she grows up so much during the course of this story.
I never walk into the studio and say, I'm going to write a song called... 'X' or called 'Slow Me Down.' I write a ton of lyrics, often the title is somewhere in those 10 pages of... I call it brain vomit. It's kind of like whatever comes out of my head and I'm unabashedly just writing it down.
I've never had my brows done - I tweeze them myself. I used to watch my mom pluck her brows, that's how I learned.
I had classical training but I don't consider myself an opera singer though.
Too many times you come across lyrics that sound like you've heard them before or you can't really relate to them. And I think that I write songs that sound fresh and sensual in kind of a layered, lush way. But I also think that they are real, and that's why I wanted to call the record 'Inside Out.'
