I'm thankful for what I've got, but I'm cramming all my money into a trust fund because I don't ever want to look around and wonder where all my money went.
I think, probably, being a young artist, there were a lot of things I thought I knew and I wanted to do, and I was like, 'Oh! That's what I want to do.' And then it took me in a different direction with 'I Think We're Alone Now,' and then all of a sudden, I was a pop star.
The writing process really became natural when it was real and from my heart, and I was exposed.
With 'A Million Miles,' I still was proving myself as a writer and as a vocalist. It gave me the platform to tour again.
No, I wasn't really suing my mother. I was just trying to get in control of my finances and my life. My stepfather has only wanted me around for my money, and he threatened to leave my mother if he didn't get the money anymore.
I guess getting used to sleeping on the tour bus has been the hardest thing - that and settling for whatever food you can get on the road.
