On fame affecting mental health: “I’m taking it one step at a time. It can be really tough on your mental health, though. I’m grateful for the people who like me for me, and keep me separated from all the noise and tabloids or what people are saying about me on social media. That’s always been a top priority. It’s funny how recognition changes everything and also changes nothing in your life. The problems I was having a year ago are still the problems I’m having now, and things that brought me joy a year ago are still the things that bring me joy now. It’s just another aspect of life that you need to learn how to deal with, but it doesn’t change who you are as a person.”
On her proudest trait: “I’m comfortable being vulnerable with people, and many times people associate vulnerability with weakness. From a young age, I realized that vulnerability equates to strength, and that’s so true in my songwriting. If I wasn’t so comfortable in my emotions, I wouldn’t have made Sour and it wouldn’t have had that same result.”
On the most surprising thing about fame: “It was surprising to see who was genuinely supportive of me and who wasn’t. Sometimes when you have a lot of success really quickly, it can scare people and make people feel different. That was an interesting thing to learn. I’m figuring it all out.”
She also recently turned heads with a show-stopping look at a big event.
