The way I see it, the men that I’m with, whoever they are, it’s like look, you have to accept that I like ice cream, and I know it shows up on my hips but if you can’t accept that, then leave. Go away. Toodles. It is non-negotiable.

The sense of loss is such a tricky one, because we always feel like our worth is tied up into stuff that we have, not that our worth can grow with things we are willing to lose.

I’d like to think that my work has multidimensionality. That I can change a pair of shoes in the middle of the song and it’s OK. That there is no structure that says I have to wear the same pair all the way through. As long as I’ve got feet, it’s all right.

I’m a musician first, a food-lover second, a dirty mouth with feet, and a girl last time I checked.

I’m really into moderation. Too much of anything will harm you in the end.

There is value in everybody’s gift. No matter how hard it is to find or how strange it is.
