i feel like this is the album that’s going to showcase the girls’ real talent. like, they’ve gone from bubblegum pop to this beautiful and empowering string of new music. this is the album that’s really going to put the girls on the map. i don’t know about you guys, but i am so happy and so proud of how far they’ve come and i don’t regret a single second of loving them at all.


you can never “just be friends” with someone you fell in love with.

I met her not that long ago, at a radio event and we exchanged numbers. And she came to one of my shows—my record release show in Brooklyn, and we just have remained in contact. She just texted me, she’s like ‘I’m having a party for my friends in Rhode Island, and I’d love you to come.’ And there were men at the party but she didn’t want a picture—she said ‘let’s have a picture with all the girls.’ So yeah, we showed up and it was fun, it was raining, so we played a lot of board games and she baked. It was very much how you would expect her to be, a wonderful hostess, there was lots of delicious food.

We played charades. When we got there, everyone was on a slip and slide but it was raining, and I was like ‘I’m not like a slip and slide person.’

It was fun, but it was very low key. Everyone’s like ‘Oh my god! You were at Taylor Swift’s house!’—but she’s very normal. To me, I didn’t feel like—I just didn’t feel like anything crazy.
She’s a very, very sweet person. So all the rumours are true. Unless the rumours are bad and then they’re not true.
