#Quote
1[on her experience in school]: "I got along with some people, but a lot of kids disliked me in school. I'd be doing TV since I was six, and I think they thought that I thought I was better than them. That was never the case---I didn't even talk about TV in school! I'd be walking down the hall, and they would yell at me or push me into the wall. It really hurt. So I was afraid to go to school. I would stay in the guidance counselor's office for lunch, just because I didn't feel like I had a place."
2"I like a guy who can survive the streets. I like to feel like if I were ever in trouble, he would help me. I like to feel like a guy is a real dude-dude".
3I'm not trying to be like the cleanest person who's, like, never gonna show her stomach or anything, but I think I'm real for real girls.
4I'm not Britney mark two. It's unfair that people compare us. I guess we are both young artists but we're totally different.
5People say that my music is too mature but I think people really knew what went on in junior high and high school. It's not too mature.
6All the photos I've taken have been tasteful. If you show a lot of skin when you're 13, when you're older, when you're 16 or 21, what do you have left to show?
