"When I was four years old, I remember looking in the mirror and running my fingers over my stomach and thinking I was fat."
"I cannot tell you that I have not thrown up since treatment. I cannot tell you that I have not cut myself since treatment. I'm not perfect."
"I believe that I definitely wasn’t given this voice just to sing. I think it was given to me for a bigger purpose."
"People think you’re like a car in a body shop. You go in, they fix you and you’re out. It doesn’t work like that. It takes constant fixing."
"Every time someone asks me for a picture or an autograph, even if I'm having a bad day and I'm in a bad mood, I remember, 'You're nothing without this person. They make it special."
"If you took away music, I wouldn't have a reason to live."
