"I had so many issues that were underneath, that needed to be taken care of, and we kept putting Band-Aids over it. It literally drove me insane. I was not eating, and purging, and self-harming. It was really difficult to be able to stop. Without music, it would be really, really hard to survive and really, really hard to stay in recovery…
what’s the best thing about your lovatics?
“Be still my heart ‘cause it’s freaking out, it’s freaking out, right now. Shining like stars ‘cause we’re beautiful, we’re beautiful, right now.”
One of the reasons I became so outspoken when I decided to come out of treatment and talk about my issues was because when I grew up and I was dealing with the pressures to be thin - it was that time in the tabloids when very very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine and that’s what i was looking up to, so that’s what I had to idolize. I don’t want that for young girls to idolize, it’s very unhealthy - and there was nobody out there for me to look at and say ‘you know what maybe this is unhealthy, maybe starving myself isn’t the answer’ so I want to be that for a 13 year old girl at home deciding whether or not to eat dinner or an 18 year old girl deciding whether or not to keep her breakfast down, y’know there needs to be a role model out there and for the first time in my life I actually feel like one…
“It’s so easy to get caught up in wanting success, wealth, and fame. If that’s the kind of recognition you seek in life, it won’t last because it’s not authentic. We are here to be of service, to be of value, and to help others in our own unique ways. Success doesn’t define who we are. It’s only a reminder of what we can achieve.”
“Music is what I love to do and my fans encourages me to continue. I know I’ve been through dark moments that I will always be ashamed one of the reasons i became so outspoken when i decided to come out of treatment and talk about my issues was because when i grew up and i was dealing with the pressures to be thin, it was that time in the tabloids when very very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine and that’s what i was looking up to, so that’s what i had to idolize. That is why it is important for me to be an example, there girls out there who need someone to show them that life is worth. Currently I’m cool with my body, my life and my music and want to pass that positivity for my fans.”
