Before the 47-year-old songstress launched her solo career and became a judge on The Voice, she was, well, just a girl in a band.
“I just literally started songwriting, I didn’t even know that I knew how to song write,” she told People. “My parents were quite strict with me and I was living at home, even into my 20s. And I would have to come home and knock my parents’ door. And it was frustrating because I was already like older.”
“I can remember thinking, ‘Wow, I’m in the car right now, I’m driving home, it’s like one in the morning and if something did happen to me, I’m vulnerable because I’m a girl,’” she went on. “And you start to think, ‘Wow, maybe people actually look at me different because I am a female.’”
