I don't think I can tell any stories about how I lived in a van in Alaska. I grew up in the suburbs, I even had my own room. We weren't poor. Everything was very normal.
I eat fish and love bacon. Plus, I don't mind if soups are made with chicken or beef stock, I just don't like eating big pieces of meat.
Also, I'm always learning better and better how to prioritize and how to leave certain things for the next day.
I love when people in culture show up on fictional TV shows. I don't mind at all being a name from the '90s.

I didn't realize what an impact having a No. 1 single would have. It connects me with people of different ages, and I get to travel all over the world.
Don't force things to happen. You can work towards things and keep yourself open to things, people, and opportunities, but you can't and shouldn't try to control everything. Also, if you haven't noticed so far, I think sleep is really important.
I'm old-school. I want to be there to drop off my daughter at school and pick her up.
The song "No Fairy Tale" tells my story. Going through the hard things leads to a richer life than just trying to make everything perfect, or worse, pretending things are good when they don't feel right. I've done that more than enough times.
There's a variety and depth to the song topics I get to write about in children's music and books: being able to write about things I wouldn't normally write about, like a disappointing pancake, or monsters or opposite day is really different than writing about heartbreak and relationships.
When I grew up we had gym at school, two or three dance classes after school, ice skating lessons, and all sorts of sports at our finger tips. We weren't glued to computers because they didn't exist, so being active was all we knew.
Stop fighting. Everyone's a person too. And take care of the Earth, please.
Although my dad was a doctor, we weren't necessarily a super-artsy family. We were just a classic, traditional family who got to take a lot of piano lessons and became a bunch of musicians.
I don't use simple words. I make games and puzzles with my songs.
The guys in my band are great-we watch movies, we eat pizza, take walks, read books. Everybody has a really great sense of humor. And my boyfriend comes and visits me on the road.

If we all leap before we crawl, we might fall.
The moon shines for you.
It's important to learn how to tell a story, ... It can be in a very direct way. It can be in a very poetic way. It can be very personal, and sometimes it can seem like it's very personal.
I have three siblings. My sister makes music. My older brother is a classical conductor, and my younger brother is a mixing engineer.
I make sure to sleep eight hours, and I'm much better about eating, because I'm not standing in front of my pantry. I go to the market and pick up little carrot nubs.
I don't have a very routine life; the kids' activities, our nightly routines, and morning routines are about as routine as it gets. In the middle of it all - other than my morning coffee, toast, and trying to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night - each day is different.
I'm very involved in the production, so I won't let it be cheesy. I make sure that it's edited in a way that's true to the situation ï¿½ subtle and clever, representing me and my friends.
