On the women she looks up to:
"I believe in Amy Winehouse. I know she's not with us anymore but I believe she was who she was and in that way she got it right. I would say an actress like Lauren Bacall also got it right. She never let anyone [persuade] her to be something she wasn't. She was strong. She always looked like she knew what she was doing."
On being labelled an anti-feminist:
"I get it. It looks like I've chosen a path of submission. But I'm a modern day woman in so many senses. I pay my way and work hard for things but it is my choice that at the end of the day I have a dominant male in my life that is hands-on. Someone who wants what he wants the way I do. I get so tired of trying to have it only my way, it's nice to have someone else who also has their life and opinions. I have to be so assertive in life that it's nice to feel escape through a really a passionate romance."
On life with boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill:
"He's on tour and opens for me. We sing some Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood duets together. I've been seeing him for a year and a half and he's even more of a meticulous, devout artist than I am. He can't keep his hands off the piano, ever. Whenever I'm not writing he always ask, 'Why aren't you writing?' We kick each others a****. We give each other input every night."
