Sometimes life is so unkind, but change is never a waste of time

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything's okay and everything's going right.

Life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up in your face.

My three addictions of choice are food, love and work.

Courage and willingness to just go for it, whether it is a conversation or a spontaneous trip, or trying new things that are scary - it is a really attractive quality.

America's a very traumatized society.

I didn't have high self-esteem when I was a teen-ager as I think most teen-agers don't.

I guess what people forget sometimes is that when I write songs, I write them sometimes in about 20 minutes.

The more vulnerable and the more confused the song is, the equal and opposite effect is how I feel after having written it.

I felt like I was making a record under the radar and that is my favorite way to do anything.

I'll keep evolving and put that into my songs.

It's when someone has an agenda of their own for the record that it doesn't work for me.

I still indulge in a glass of wine or chocolate - treats are mandatory. Without deviating from the day-to-day healthy diet once in a while it wouldn't be sustainable for me and that's what I wanted: an approach to eating to last my entire life.

I'll be writing songs till I die. There's just no question.

I'm about 90 percent vegan. I think veganism is really well suited for training at least for me anyway.

I remember thinking during those times that I wanted to write in a way where there are no rules.

I'm excited about there being more of a sisterhood these days. Back in the '90s there was a lot of hate - the women I looked up to as artists were dissing me! It's not so patriarchal these days - there's more love and a lot less hate!

To me the biggest irony of this lifetime that I'm living is that for someone who thrives in the public eye in the creative ways that I do I actually don't enjoy being in the public eye.

I thought the more famous I became the more friendships I would have but the opposite was true.

Getting married and starting a family has been a lifelong goal and one that I have persevered through different paths up to it!
