I love being able to work with other artists I admire, but I have a lot to do on my own before I am willing to make it all about embracing other people.

I think love is blind. You don't see it; you don't hear what people are saying or what you're saying. You don't see what you're doing. All you see is the person in front of you. That's it.

I love Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Katy Perry. They are all about being themselves and I love that.

I've been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17.

I never really said I want to be a role model. But then when it happened I was so down for it.

I did gain weight, but I don't care.

Egos turn me off, big time.

I still feel like I'm the girl from Texas.

The guys that do have the confidence to hit on me are not necessarily my type, but they think they are because I'm a pop star; I sing songs, do movies. I like to feel sexy and confident on stage.

There's nothing wrong with a woman being comfortable, confident.

I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me.

I love running away for a few months and creating a record.

I don't actually like dates. I get awkward as I never know what to do.

Disney is a machine, and I'm grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more.

It's insane how much press my Instagram will get. It's weird, in a way, that I can dictate the agenda - but I love being able to have a say in all of that.

I don't want people to look at me as someone who is just this celebrity person.

I've never been part of a movie I would watch over and over again, and I'm really proud of it.

I'm not perfect. I make mistakes.

Success is nothing if you don't have the right people to share it with; you're just gonna end up lon

I just try to make my home everywhere I go as much as I possibly can.

One of the most important things for me is my hair. I've always been about my hair, and I love that my mom and my nana taught me how to take care of it myself. It goes through a lot every day, but I try to keep it healthy. I have to admit, it can get a little dead on the ends.

I was a big tomboy.

I'm a young woman, and I'm growing up and trying to do it in a way I feel comfortable with.

I believe in second chances, but I don't believe in third or fourth chances.

It's awful walking into a restaurant and having the whole room look at you, knowing what they're saying.

I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, 'I want to look like them!'

I don't know if I would've had the opportunity to be on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' if it weren't for my heritage. I realize everybody wants what they don't have. But at the end of the day, what you have inside is much more beautiful than what's on the outside!

A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on 'Barney', but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show. I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that's a good thing!

If you are broken,you do not have to stay broken.

There was certain points shooting 'Spring Breakers' where I wasn't uncomfortable at all, and that let me be free. It allowed me to play with what I love, so that's what I wanted to do with my music.

I love traveling and touring, but I have to bring the little things that make me feel at home.

My perfect guy wears Converse, is totally laid back, and doesn't worry about being cool.

I don't like the whole off-and-on thing. I don't like 'taking a break.' Either you're with me, or you're not. And that's how I kind of deal.

It's so disappointing that I've become a tabloid story.

I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.

For me, my music is fun. I don't really take my music that serious.

I would try to promote something that I loved, and the entire interview would be about my personal life. I would leave a room feeling defeated, feeling embarrassed, but I would always make sure to put that smile on my face because I wasn't going to let them get to me.

I would deactivate every single comment on any social media. You should be able to post what you want, say what you want, be what you want without anybody judging you.

Authenticity is my life.

I think it's healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself, and challenge yourself; it's important to do that.

The older I've gotten, the more I've learned that I have to open myself up to all opportunities. Maybe I'll get burned and not meet the right people, but I won't know until I do it.

Being cool, having a 'cool' energy is just not attractive to me.

I feel confident. I feel empowered. I feel in control.

I like to find things that are unconventional and make them look classic, because if I'm forcing something, you can just tell.

I just try to be the best I can, but I'm human.

I'm not sure there's a method to my madness.

I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful.

I really - I just wanna sing. And I wanna show people that I can sing.

People are so mean, it's exhausting.
