this goes out to all you people going bed with a 10
and waking up with a 2
I just want to bring joy to people’s lives, because life is really too fucking hard sometimes.
Every show day, from the moment I wake up, it’s just prep for that night. It’s like I’m a Kobe-beef cow. I get acupuncture, massage, cupping, cranial sacral work, which connects the energy through your spine. I work out, I stretch. I never skip that. You never see me at Barneys before a show.
[…] When I’m writing these anthemic songs, usually I’m in a really low place, and it’s almost like this little angel on my shoulder trying to push me forward and encourage me and be like, ‘You can do it. Find your voice, find your strength,’ blah, blah, blah. There’s a self-motivational person inside of me that crawls out via song, but usually I’m just writing those songs because I, too, need that inspiration and encouragement.
