On her album”s new sound:
“I just wanted to write songs and make something that was a little more artistic. I wanted to go down that road, I wasn”t trying to write a big radio record.”

On never being like the other pop singers:
“I wasn”t the girl baring her midriff with backup dancers and a headset microphone. I came out and had a lot to say with my lyrics, and I played the guitar. I had a completely different getup, stage presence, everything.”

On her fiance Chad:
“He does what I do- he”s a rocker, he plays guitar, he”s onstage every night, he writes songs. We were having a really good time. We hit it off as writing partners, then friends, and we started dating last summer.”

On staying true to herself and everyone else:
“I”m so transparent. If I”m not being myself, I won”t do well, and that goes for writing songs, work, relationships, everything. And if I”m not happy, people are going to know that.”
