I always thought that if someone does not like who I am, then at least I will remain myself.
I do not really like pants. I love tights. I’m not really a trouser person.
It used to be important for me how people look at me. I think you need to look for the best role model that anyone can be, the main thing is to be yourself, because this is the coolest thing that can be, and not respond to the nasty things that talk about you, because it should not matter .
Insults are much more interesting to read than congratulations!
I write about my life and I write about what I think, and, you know, each song is different. There are love songs and sad songs. It comes from my heart, and that’s really all I feel. Music saved me in many ways. She feeds my soul.
Be yourself, and if after that people don’t like you – send them to hell.
Everyone will say nasty things no matter who you are. As long as you stay true to yourself, this is the coolest thing that can be. This is the only thing I would preach.
I do not want to be considered a role model, it is very difficult to work the way I do. I got into the show business not to be an example to follow. I got here very young because I love music and I still like this drive.
I didn’t want to be Elvis, I wanted us to be the Beatles. And we got it. We are Family.
They told me that I dress like a prostitute, I just added, like a first-class prostitute!
Rock is the ability to bring freedom to the world, to the mind of people.
You should not stop, no matter what they say about you.
I like to work. I am a workaholic, but no one believes me. I sometimes work in a recording studio until three in the morning.
I do not go out. I have no desire to be a tabloid party girl. I am completely alone. I have been like this all my life.
No matter where you are – at school, university or at work – you still will not like someone. This is inevitable, but absolutely does not mean anything.
I dress for myself. Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 17, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.
