All the photos I've taken have been tasteful. If you show a lot of skin when you're 13, when you're older, when you're 16 or 21, what do you have left to show?
I'm not Britney mark two. It's unfair that people compare us. I guess we are both young artists but we're totally different.
(On her experience in school): "I got along with some people, but a lot of kids disliked me in school. I'd be doing TV since I was six, and I think they thought that I thought I was better than them. That was never the case---I didn't even talk about TV in school! I'd be walking down the hall, and they would yell at me or push me into the wall. It really hurt. So I was afraid to go to school. I would stay in the guidance counselor's office for lunch, just because I didn't feel like I had a place."
I'm not trying to be like the cleanest person who's, like, never gonna show her stomach or anything, but I think I'm real for real girls.
I like a guy who can survive the streets. I like to feel like if I were ever in trouble, he would help me. I like to feel like a guy is a real dude-dude.

I'm filming a movie with Robin Williams called 'R.V.,' and I'm having the time of my life,
There's just so much I'm ready to explore and so much that I've been through in the last two years since I recorded my last album that I've wanted to talk about, ... I mean, I don't want to freak anybody out with the (content), but it's just a natural progression from then to now. So much happens in that time and I'm excited to put it out there.
It has a nice reggae feel to it. I think a lot of people will like it. Lyrically, it's saying that you want a guy for just himself. You don't need all those material things, it's not important. You just want to spend time with him.
I've already learned so much from working with Robin. He's given me some great advice, and he's just a great person. I'm very inspired by working with him,
