Never, never listen to anybody that tries to discourage you..
If critics have problems with my personal life, it's their problem. Anybody with half a brain would realize that it's the charts that count.
This is for all of you out there tonight, reaching for a dream - don't ever give up! Never ever listen to anyone, when they try to discourage you, because they do that, believe me!
When you love someone so deeply they become your life, it's easy to succumb overwhelming fears inside. Blindly I imagined I could keep you under a glass. Now I understand to hold you I must open my hand and watch you rise.
I'm really fortunate. I'm really happy, and I'm really really lucky to be where I am.

It's in my genes. My mother was an opera singer. I'm clearly dramatic.
A lot of people are singing about how screwed up the world is, and I don't think that everybody wants to hear about that all the time.
I don't mind being compared to Whitney, there are people miles worse to be compared to.
It's hard to be someone that people talk about and write about, you know? They don't know me.
Basically, I started singing when I started talking. Music has just been my saving grace my whole life.
