On her recent divorce and the importance of self-care: “It’s the ultimate decision you can make for yourself, to move on from something that isn’t serving you or that other person anymore. I think that we’ve all probably learned a lot about self-care in the last year-and-a-half with the pandemic, and re-evaluating what is of the utmost importance for me to be happy.”

On her wild SNL performance: “It was an idea that hit me last minute. A lot of my ideas come like a lightning bolt with no explanation. A couple of days ago I was getting a workout and I had this image pop into my mind of Jenny from Forrest Gump, naked on a stool. I just thought, with ‘Justified,’ I had to do it. I thought there was a lot of symbolism there for me. This [album] is the most naked that I have been artistically. So why not make it literal?”

On the challenges of sustaining her artistry: “There’s a really unique and beautiful energy there in Japan. Everything is full of such intent and respect. I am working on a collab with Hello Kitty right now—it’s going to be called ‘Hello, Kacey.’ I loved the chance to write that piece on Hayao Miyazaki for V. And since that transpired, a really cool opportunity to do an actual voiceover for a Miyazaki film [2020’s Earwig and the Witch, directed by Hayao’s son Gorô Miyazaki] came to light. I had like seven lines, but now I have an actual voice in one of their newest films.

On her journey with self-growth: “I’m in this chapter where I’m trying to lean into vulnerability, and maybe try to get away from perfection. You know what I mean? Nobody likes perfect. It’s boring as hell.”

She also had something to say about being excluded from a category at the Grammys.
