I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be.... It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. ...I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women.
I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It’s good to support each other and I do try to put that message in my music.
...I don’t need Sasha so much any more because these days I know who I am. It takes time to figure out who you are and I am still discovering different things about myself – as I am exposed to different experiences I think, “Oh, I like this, I didn’t know I liked this.” That’s the journey of life that is so exciting. More and more I know who I am, I know what I like, I know what I want and that makes me feel so free. I don’t need to hide any more.
