On her comeback Its pretty wild to be coming back at 24!Theres a whole group of young kids who grew up listening to pop music and they dont know who I am. I think its wonderful because theyre so in tune with social media.

On the release of her tringle I smiled all day when I announced my tringle. It was really exhilarating. I flew from San Francisco to Los Angeles in one day and did a performance. It was very surreal to see what Ive been fighting for come to fruition. I know its the beginning of the next chapter. I also may have shed a tear or two so many emotions!

She is advocating for legal protection for young artists Im an outspoken person in general. Im particularly passionate about protecting minors, and I dont think anyone should be held to contract that they signed when they were 12. I felt trapped. We need better protection for children who are working in the [music] industry. I feel like [we] as artists need to come out and encourage aspiring artists starting in the industry.

On her girl squad I know that Taylor Swift has the most beautiful squad of friends, but I have friends I grew up with

Her go-to tattoo shop is Prix Adornment in SoCal I like being in tattoo shops. I like being with artists, including tattoo artists.
