On her devastating divorce:
"In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27. Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life."
"Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while. It’s a f***ed-up thing—without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs."
On her exciting career:
"My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist,” she says. “They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life."
On her move from Brooklyn to New Orleans:
"I’ve thought about moving to New Orleans for years but just never had the courage to do it. Now my son is at that age where he’s really establishing friends and a community, so I feel like this is a good time to try it out. I consider myself a dual citizen at this point."
