Inside the issue, she’s talking about the relationships with her famous female friends and how she’s not “just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies” although “I do love ponies and rainbows,” but she doesn’t need to pretend to be “dark and twisty and complicated” either. It’s more of the same insipid fodder as the rest of her interviews that make her relatable while shaving about 10 years off her 22-years of age.
On the importance of having girlfriends: “They are so important in my life right now. I’m the kind of girl who needs to tell her friends everything. I’ve developed this really close-knit group of girls. Two of my close friends are bandmates.”
On her friendship with Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: “I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they’ve experienced all of this with me, and they’ve also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we’ve stayed close.”
On being misunderstood: “I think some people think it’s just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I’m dark and twisty and complicated, because I’m not that either. It’s just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.”
On her relationship with the Kennedys: I don’t talk about my personal life in great detail. I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you’re going through.
On whether she worries about people using her for fame and money: ’I think you can tell who’s a good person to be around, who makes you laugh, who’s fun, whom you can trust. And, yes, you’re going to get burned a few times, but I’d really rather get burned a few times than sit alone in that house with the curtains drawn. So God forbid this person you’re hanging out with gets a bit of validation out of the fact you’re famous. Is that the worst-case scenario? You know, it doesn’t seem that bad.’ - via Glamour Magazine.
