I always see colors when I listen to music. It's difficult to explain, but when I hear the music, I think about gold, blood rushing... I like to keep it really warm and glittery.

I don't feel embarrassed by any of the music that I like. I think it's all genuinely clever, good music.

There's something about girls together, uniting, that I just thought was cool.

I believe I deserve everything that could maybe happen. And I don't think that's a cocky thing to say because I've worked really hard, and I've never bitten the hand that fed me, and I've always been really respectful.

I wrote a song for Icona Pop which boosted my confidence quite a lot.

I feel like I can be six different people in one day sometimes. Which is fun but also really strange in my own brain.

To be honest, for me, my main workout is when I'm on stage. Even though I make pop music, I don't think I perform in the classic 'pop star' sort of way. I'm very active on stage; I always end up dripping in sweat afterwards. It's always like a full-on, wild performance, so that's pretty much like my exercise, I would say.

I always love wearing Vivienne Westwood. Her dresses just seem to fit me perfectly, and she makes dresses for girls with curves - I love that.

I think it's cool to be a rock star; I don't think there are many. There aren't many who speak out and take risks. And I think that's important.

I love that '...Baby One More Time' video, to be honest; it's amazing.

People would always ask me how I came up with my music and what it felt like to make music, and I would always see colours, and then I found out that that was synaesthesia. It helps me understand songs and what I like.

I just feel like the songs I write lend themselves to this girl-power feeling, and those are the artists that I looked up to when I was younger.

I know some people are like, 'I'm depressed, and I'm a struggling artist,' and that really works for some people, but that doesn't work for me. I have to be really happy, even when I'm writing my depressing songs; I have to come through that stage before I can write.

Obviously, my label would want me to be on the radio all the time, but that's not my personal goal.

I love karaoke and totally hog the mic when I go out and do it with my friends.

I see music in colours. I love music that's black, pink, purple or red - but I hate music that's green, yellow or brown.

Anyone that thinks 'pop' is a dirty word is living in the '90s.

I never dress for the occasion correctly because I hate fashion rules. They're so boring.

I've been really inspired by Paris Hilton, small dogs, and a glitter, luxe lifestyle.

I want to share the experiences I've had.

My real friends are definitely the people I grew up with - the people who don't care about my music career at all.

I'm lucky I have really cool parents.

I'm not a diva, and I'm not mean to people or have weird rules.

I loved Justice and Uffie and everyone signed to the label Ed Banger. They were really influential to me when first started making music.

I quite like doing laundry. I find it quite like relaxing.

I always think about fashion when it comes to making music and music videos... what the colours will look like, what the material will be, how will it work with the sound of the music.

I'm just not very good at being happy all the time.

Pop music is getting so emo. It's great. Emotional girl for life. I see myself in the centre of that.

'True Romance' was definitely, in part, still me finding my voice as a writer. I was nervous, and I was a lot more shy. The album sounds bruised.

I think what women think is sexy is what is sexy. Girls eating pizza are massively sexy.

My dad always used to encourage me to dress weird.

I don't want to sell my soul or anything, but to go on a huge tour would be next level.

I definitely went through a phase where I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger... But I certainly wasn't very good at it.

I actually think it doesn't even matter what age you are or what sex - though that does play into it sometimes - you always have to fight in any kind of creative world because nobody knows your own brain and your own creative ideas better than you do.

I think the best people are the ones who are just as nice and fun. This is really cheesy, but you only have one life - why spend most of it pretending to be cool?

I wish I could rap! I wish I could rap like Azealia Banks or Lil Wayne or someone like that... Twista. He's super fast.

I've heard people say to me, 'How can you claim to be a feminist when you dress like that?' I wear a lot of slip dresses and nightwear and stuff. People always question my credibility because of that: 'Oh, are you selling sex? Are you doing this or that to be recognized more or to sell your music?' No, it's just a fashion thing for me.

I feel like, throughout 'True Romance,' I was unsure of myself in terms of songwriting. Even though it was my voice, I feel there were a lot of other voices on that record, too.

I am very spontaneous when I write; it kind of just comes out. I never think about what I'm going to write about first... it just sort of comes out like word vomit.

I've actually done a cover of 'Train in Vain' by The Clash with Viv Albertine - which was originally written about her.

I count myself as not only just an artist, not only as a singer, but a business woman. I write my own songs; I write my own video treatments, manage other artists. I write for other artists; it's not just about getting on stage and singing a song.

I want my music, whether it's sung by other people or sung by myself, to affect the way the Top 40 radio sounds. I want to heavily influence it with things that have come directly from my brain.

My favorite video of all time is 'Say You'll Be There' by the Spice Girls. That's the best styling ever. If I could dress like that every day, I would.

I love Tinashe.

I think that U.K. audiences, in general, are very closed off. Very judgmental.

I always Google myself. It's horrible.

I make pop music, but I do it on my own terms. I'll never play the game, so to speak, just for success. I'll always follow my heart and make the music I want to make.

I think the best artists are the ones who constantly change - Madonna, Bowie.

I'm very selfish in that I make music for myself, not for other people; I kind of only think about other people afterwards when it's out.
