The 31-year-old says she’s finally comfortable with her body, after years of being unusually thin (seemingly at the behest of the record executive she’s chastising in her interview). If the dieting quote sounds familiar, it’s because she basically told Marie Claire the same thing.
On her changing body type: “Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage. Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”
On fame at a young age: “When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull-dozed. There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.”
On her new album: “If you love Fighter, you’re going to love my new album. As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.”
On looking back to the staggering success of Stripped: “I was 21 and fearless. It was a really great turning point for me to be the artist I’d always wanted to be.” - via Lucky Magazine.
