I’ve grown up. I’ve bought an apartment in New York and I’ve become a woman. I think it’s an important time to move forward with your life. I’m not that same girl from my first record and I think it’s important that you don’t try and stay 15 or 16 forever.
I’m not going to be one of those artists who walks in [to a room with songwriters] and says, ‘I don’t know, what do you want to write about?’ or one of those things where they say, ‘So what’s going on in your life?,’ and I tell them and then they have to write a song about it. I wouldn’t be a singer if I weren’t a songwriter. I have no interest in singing someone else’s words.
