It can be difficult navigating the line between tabloid gossip and authenticity.
The hour and a half I'm on stage is my favourite part of the day when I'm on tour because the only part I really love is the interaction with the audience.
I'd had a relationship with a woman when I was 20, but nobody cared then. As it came out at the same time as my fame, I started to have panic attacks.
When I was outed by Perez Hilton as bisexual, I suddenly started being asked personal questions, which was really difficult.
I think I managed to trick people a little bit into thinking I'm more arty by making creative, artistic, visual work and applying it to commercial music. Maybe. I don't know.
When I was 10, my parents really valued success in the arts, and I thought if I was a famous 'something artistic,' that they would love me more.
As a person, I'm a good person who shows up for my friends. I do my best to be good. As an artist, I have no idea.
I appreciate my music is famous, but I'd rather my face wasn't so that I can just live a normal life.
Fame is the worst thing that can happen to a person. I choose not to appear in anything publicly. Twitter's it!
People call me for the ballads. Apparently that's where I've been pigeonholed. But it's really interesting and really fun. It's my favourite part of the job, writing.
I try not to do too much self-analysis apart from when I'm actually paying $170 an hour for it. I try to keep it in the room.
I'm allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy. But also, I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on 10 pounds or take off 10 pounds, or I have a hair extension out of place, or my fake tan is botched.
I don't need to be rich anymore; I don't need to be a millionaire.
I'm fine around other people's feelings. It doesn't make me nervous or anxious.
I have social anxiety. It's easier up on stage because there's security in being there. When I'm off stage I'm trying not to be a manic freak. I'm quite shy.
If Amy Winehouse was a beehive, then I guess I'm a blonde bob.
