Here’s what the 33-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On being herself: “My dad used to drill it into my head that sometimes you have to stand on the mountain alone. ‘You’re perfect just the way you are, and I think you’re beautiful, and I think, more important, that you’re smart and funny and talented.’ I just had the right people in my life. And I had points to prove. I liked being different.”
On expressing herself as a form of therapy: “I’ve exorcised so many demons by writing and singing and having shows with all these people who feel the way I do.”
On finding balance in her life: “I would like to be more disciplined, but I just really enjoy food. I have an Italian mindset when it comes to food and family and festivities. It’s like, just enjoy life. Try to eat clean as much as possible. I’d love to be 10 pounds thinner, but it’s not in the cards for me. And I’m totally OK with that.”
