Sometimes you see these people who are just soâ€”Godâ€”so affected by all of it, where ambition has taken precedence over happiness. But when I meet people who really embody this serenity of knowing that they have had an amazing lifeâ€”James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Ethel Kennedy... They just
Having room to run and having just the space to use your imagination and create stories out of everyday life, I think that had a lot to do with me wanting write. And write songs
Standing there at the stage door to the rest of your life. Time to dip your toe into the deep end. Try things. Say hi already. Laugh a lot. Mess up. Apologize. Mess up again. Hug people. Take chances. Trust yourself. Lose things. Get over it. Hold your friends close. Gather your strength. Gain wisdo
I heard that when Christina Aguilera went back to her prom, people, like, booed her. I can't imagine going through that. If you know that's going to happen, why put yourself in that situation? I'd rather play for 20,000 screaming people, you know?
I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger.
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
I've learned through writing that if something made me feel deeply or anything at all, it was worth it.
I never want to change so much that people can't recognize me.
I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show.
I keep going back to love when I write songs because I can't figure it out.
A letdown is worth a few songs. A heartbreak is worth a few albums. Taylor S
There are certain people who elicit a really passionate response. It's crazy. That's my Alexander Wang theory.
My mom and I have always been really close. Sheâ€™s always been the friend that was always there.
When I was growing up in Pennsylvania, auditioning for Broadway was my dream.
I've found time can heal most anything and you just might find who you're supposed to be.
I've been on tour since I was 16, and I always do meet-and-greets before and after shows, so you kind of build these friendships with people. I have girls come up to me and tell me exactly what's going on in their love lives.
You are the best thing that's ever been mine.
I put out one album one week, and I'm already worried about the next one. I feel a lot of emotion throughout the course of a day. But not to the point where you need to be worried about me.
Some of the most beautiful people in the whole world wake up some days and they don't think that they're pretty.
When we're falling in love or out of it, that's when we most need a song that says how we feel. Yeah, I write a lot of songs about boys. And I'm very happy to do that.
Darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.
I think the reason a lot of celebrities feel insecure and want to stop eating altogether is because they see so many pictures of themselves on a daily basis. It's unhealthy how many times you see your own image - it's just constant. When you see something enough, you're going to tear it down to the
Nothing ruins your day more than getting a bad review. Taylor S
It was an actual Christmas tree farm. We had, like, 15 acres. It was really fun as a kid. I also spent my summers at the Jersey Shore, on the bay in Stone Harbor. I walked everywhere barefoot. It was just the most amazing, magical way to grow up.
I was never a boy magnet at school. There was always the girl all the guys liked and wanted to date, but it was never me.
I don't want people to think of me as sexy.
I'm not concerned with people seeing me in a certain way. Some people see me as a kid, some people see me as an adult. But I'm seriously not going to complain how anybody sees me, as long as they see me.
I don't like to feel like I'm some fragile package that has to be shipped by high-priority mail and handled with white gloves.
Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I've begun to fear more that that is letting the moment pass
I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and st
