READ EXCERPTS BELOW:
On supporting Demi Lovato: All I’m saying is, I reached out personally. I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say.
On turning 26: It’s peaceful. It’s weird. The moment I turned 26, I felt 26. Right now, I feel very sure of where I am. I don’t feel erratic or emotionally unstable. Or like I can’t handle my emotions, like I used to. It’s kind of understanding myself a little more. By all means I don’t have myself figured out. But it feels good.
On volunteering for A21, the global anti–human-trafficking nonprofit: I wasn’t going to immediately start discussing it. It’s out of my comfort zone. I needed to be fully immersed in it. What a great thing another celebrity is doing.…That’s not why I want to talk about it. I can’t be silent about this.
On the meaning behind ‘Flawless,’ a song on her upcoming album: Meaning through all your imperfections, you’re flawless. You’re not striving. It’s me encouraging a younger version of myself. Even when you’re imperfect, even when you’re feeling worthless, you are flawless. It’s a song I’m going to sing for the rest of my life.
