It’s really interesting to look back and realize that it is kind of weird that I created this character, who was basically constructed to make people like me. Because I thought, well, I wasn’t a huge superstar after the first album, so, I’ve obviously done something wrong.

 I write the lyrics first and to be honest, I don’t know how the rest happens. It just comes out. I sit down at a piano and go on with it. American pop music is so different and calculated. For artists, it comes out of these detailed writing sessions with so many different people and they take forever. Music is suppose to be organic, not focused on being fucking massive.
