Sara Bareilles Covers 'Zooey' Magazine Fall Issue (Exclusive)
Here is what the 33-year-old “Brave” singer had to share with the mag:
On her tendency to curse a lot: “Maybe I’m rebelling! I don’t know if there is a relation there. Maybe I’m subconsciously rebelling… It’s a part of my personality. My parents have gotten over it; my grandparents have gotten over it. I just swear. I don’t mean any offense by it. It’s just the way I talk.”
On moving to the Big Apple: “I used to swear that I would never live in New York because it was too much. But, you know, you always change and grow, and I’m just in a new chapter in my life. I know, right now, New York is where I need to be. It’s just speaking to me on a fundamental level right now. The electricity, the energy in the air… it’s really inspiring. There is so much art, so much creativity. There’s so much bravery there. That’s what I’m seeking right now in my life. I just needed to see myself out of context and introduce myself in a different space.”
On writing a book: “I’m looking at it as a collection of short essays, like ‘Bossypants’ (by Tina Fey), kind of. I don’t know how to not infuse the humor. That book was a great template. I’m taking moments; some will be a little more serious since I’m telling stories about my life. In my perfect world, it would be delivered by the end of this year. So I’ll aim for that.”
