  • Quotes
  • Because of my family, I was very driven and I really wanted to be where I am today.
  • Image is something that people think too much about. When it comes to style and clothes, it's about feeling confident in what you're wearing.
  • I knew that if I wanted to do a sappy ballad album I could, but it wouldn't be me. It would be so awkward.
  • I think that if you love something so much you have to do it. I love music so much, there was no choice.
  • The first show I did, I was so nervous I tripped during my first song!
  • This business looks glamorous and fun, but it's so much work. There are moments when you are like, 'Oh my God, all this work has paid off and it's so cool.'
  • I would sing behind closed doors growing up. Jessica was so good and it made me shy about my own voice. But, I don't hide my singing - not anymore. I sing punk music actually. I love to run around and scream and rock out and play guitar.
  • 'Autobiography' is basically a response to people assuming I'm a Jessica clone. It's like, 'If you wanna know me, just ask me!
  • I've always been a rocker. Like ever since I was really young. I had a crush on the Green Day guys. That's always been what I was like and been my interest. Then I was in a punk band for a while and we broke up."
  • I've always loved rock music. I went to ballet school and had orange hair. I've always been out there.
  • I've never looked at myself and thought "Oh yeah, I'm sexy". I've felt sexy and confident, but I don't look at myself that way
  • No matter what people say, your fans are the ones that come to watch the movie or come to your shows and that's the most important thing.
  • I think shoes say a lot about a person. Growing up, in the front shoe closet of my house, half of it would be full of Jessica's high heels and half would be full of my mismatched Converse. I think if I had first walked into the studio wearing high heels people wouldn't have taken me seriously at all. I walked in wearing my Cons and they knew, 'this girl is here to rock.'
  • I like to do chill things on dates. I think it would be fun to go to the zoo. I know it's really weird and random, but I love animals. It'd be like a day of doing silly things, while enjoying nature.
  • I never worry about looking cool in front of a guy. I have never been a self-conscious girl. Goofing around is part of being comfortable with yourself. I've always been good at meeting new people. I just say, 'Hi, how you doing?' and soon we'll end up laughing about something.
