And we dated each other for about a year, then I was perpetually single after that. I put in a fireplace, a flip-down treadmill and a really comfortable bed.
I feel like I'm home whenever I'm on my tour bus. My heart goes out to them and everyone there is in my thoughts and prayers.
I've already spoken to some other artists about doing something to help.
Maybe a benefit concert or something. We're trying to make that happen. I do have days where I just don't want to get out of bed because there's so much to do but they don't happen very often. The pressure never really gets to me. I've always loved there being a little bit of pressure on me to succeed. I thrive on that. I'm a big people-watcher. When I see a girl walking down the street wearing a really cool necklace or an outfit that's put together in a way I wouldn't have thought of, it's inspiring to me. Also, girls come through my meet and greet lines every night wearing dresses or outfits I love. That's really my favorite way to be inspired by fashion. Sometimes I feel like I lead a double life. One minute I'll be negotiating a contract & the next I'll be at home with my friends. It's always been like that, even at school. I went to class, studied for tests and had crushes on boys, & then after school I'd go downtown to Music Row in Nashville & write songs. In middle school and junior high, all my friends ditched me, so I was really lonely. I was doing different things at the weekend and I wasn't part of the gang any more. I just wanted to play shows and I think it got really irritating to them. It's weird, I thought I'd have so many more friends now but I feel like I'm less popular than I've ever been. My best friend is Abigail and we've been friends since I was 15. Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city & the people I love so dearly. Nashville is my home, & the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis. I love make-up. When I go on stage, I get to play with my look & try on all kinds of different colors - try red lips tonight, purple eyeshadow tomorrow. You get to play around with all these different characters, & I think that's one of my favorite things about makeup - you can put on a new character. I over-think everything, I over-analyze everything.
I've had countless opportunities to do some really bad things.
And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny. I don't know how many are scared off. I try to be an approachable person.
And I don't have a bunch of bodyguards or a big entourage. I'm just a normal person. There's a lot to distract me from dating. I don't really sit around & wallow in being alone.
It's in my comfort zone, being single. I feel that a lot happens to you when you're not looking for it,
So I'm not actively looking. I don't have a problem with being single.
All my friends in high school would always go from boyfriend to boyfriend...
& they were never alone because they hated being alone. I never want to be that way. I always have an idea who I want to thank if I win, but when I get out there I totally lose it...
And I'm like, 'I can't believe this!' I get completely emotional.
I end up thanking my dad, mom, brother, pets.
I have no control of what is coming out of my mouth. A letdown is worth a few songs. A heartbreak is worth a few albums. I'm really loving Glee right now, If it did happen, I'd love to see what they would do with me. The bad thing about being tall is the majority of people are at a different eye level than you,
And so you feel like you're looking down to talk to people,
Which is kind of unnatural - looking down to talk to people, & they have to look way up to talk to you. I forget everything I've said by the time I walk off the stage,
I've been lucky enough to win a couple of awards this year
And there's always that moment when I'm walking back stage & I have to ask someone what I said. Ahh, this is album of the year, Oh wow! Thank you so much. I just hope that you know how much this means to me, that we get to take this back to Nashville. "This is for my dad, Thank you for all those times you said I could do whatever I wanted in life. And to my mom, you're my best friend. I was driving down the road the other day,
& I saw my face on the movie poster for the first time. That was really crazy. I've read interviews with some of the most beautiful women who have insecurities.
And you look at them and you're like 'How do you have?'
Name one thing wrong with yourself and they could name a handful. I hope I never change the way I live my life just because everyone's watching it, If I don't want to be photographed doing something, then I probably shouldn't do it... To even be mentioned in a category with Michael Jackson...
Is an unimaginable honor...I'm sending my love to the Jackson family. I definitely have body issues, but everybody does, When you come to the realization that everybody does that - even the people that I consider flawless - then you can start to live with the way you are. I've never thought it was a curse to be single, and at this point in my life, I'm in the mind-set where I choose to be single, like I got to light scented candles and write in my diary and I wouldn't have time for that if I had a boyfriend right now! You might think I'd bring up Joe Jonas, that guy who broke up with me on the phone, but I'm not gonna mention him in my monologue. Hey Joe, I'm doing real well. Tonight, I'm hosting SNL but I'm not gonna brag about that in my monologue. La la la. Ha ha ha. La la la. If guys don't want me to write bad songs about them, then they shouldn't do bad things. You might be expecting me to say something about Kanye and how he ran up on the stage at the VMAs, But there's nothing more to say, 'cause everything's OK. I've got security lining the stage. To be recognized by the Grammys is the ultimate honor, and all I know is that when I write about this in my journal tonight it will be in all capital letters and underlined four times, and there will be lots of exclamation points in this entry because I never imagined I'd get to write this kind of journal entry. I started freaking out and jumping up and down...
I honestly never would have predicted this,
Eight nominations - I'm ecstatic, and blown away and so, so thankful. When you strategize a relationship too much, like, 'we're not gonna be public about it, & we're gonna say this in interviews,' when you think it all out, I think that complicates the relationship, I think that's unfair for the relationship. To me, Fearless is not the absense of fear. It's not being completely unafraid.
To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them.
To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. People haven't always been there for me but music always has. I suffer from girlnextdooritis where the guy is friends with you and that's it. This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change. There's more to life than dating the boy on the football team. I never want to change so much that people can't recognize me. I'm intimidated by the fear of being average. Everybody has that point in their life where you hit a crossroads and you've had a bunch of bad days & there's different ways you can deal with it. --- I just turned completely to music.
