~ Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it's broken, but you can still see the crack in that mother fucker's reflection.
~ I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me.
~ Don't you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can't be exactly who you are.
~ Well, that's your opinion, isn't it? And I'm not about to waste my time trying to change it.
~ Love is like a brick. You can build a house, or you can sink a dead body.
~ You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.
~ Do not allow people to dim your shine because they are blinded. Tell them to put on some sunglasses, cuz we were born this way bitch!
~ When you make music or write or create, it's really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you're writing about at the time.
~ They can't scare me, if I scare them first.
~ Do you know the feeling, when your heart is so hurt, that you could feel the blood dripping?
~ I want the deepest, darkest, sickest parts of you that you are afraid to share with anyone because I love you that much.
~ If you dont have any shadows you're not in the light
~ And now, I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.
~ I used to walk down the street like I was a fucking star... I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be - and then to fight so hard for it every day that the lie becomes the truth.
~ I remember watching the mascara tears flood the ivories and I thought, "It's OK to be sad." I've been trained to love my darkness.
~ I'm already crazy. I'm a fearless person. I think it creeps up on you. I don't think it can be stopped. If my destiny is to lose my mind because of fame, then that's my destiny. But my passion still means more than anything.
~ I'm obsessively opposed to the typical.
~ People will always talk, so lets give them sumthin to talk about
~ A girl’s got to use what she’s given and I’m not going to make a guy drool the way a Britney video does. So I take it to extremes. I don’t say I dress sexily on stage - what I do is so extreme. It’s meant to make guys think: ‘I don’t know if this is sexy or just weird.
~ Cause it's a hard life, with love in the world. and i'm a hard girl, loving me is like chewing on pearls.
~ All that ever holds somebody back, I think, is fear. For a minute I had fear. [Then] I went into the [dressing] room and shot my fear in the face...
~ I've always been famous, it's just no one knew it yet.
~ I want women -- and men -- to feel empowered by a deeper and more psychotic part of themselves. The part they're always trying desperately to hide. I want that to become something that they cherish.
~ Well my music was different in high school; I was singing about love—you know, things I don't care about anymore.
~ As artists, we are eternally heartbroken.
~ Once you kill a cow, you gotta make a burger
~ I'm telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true
~ Sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you're not a winner, you want to be like yourself. I want my fans to know it's okay.
