On her prediction of stardom :
"Ever since I was really little, I've always had a very normal idea of what I wanted. I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don't know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, 'Am I going to be a local TV person? AM I going to be a motivational speaker?' It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you this buried understanding, of course."
On her growing fame anxiety:
"I teeter on seeming ungrateful when I talk about this, but I'm kind of going through a meltdown about it lately. All of a sudden, the entire world feels entitled to know everything about my life. I am just not ok with it. It's as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being and I haven't been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I'm not going to find peace with it."
On her personality growing up:
"I was a weirdo. I wasn't picked on or anything. And I wasn't smarter than the other kids. That's not why I didn't fit in. I've just had this weird anxiety. I hated recess. I didn't like field trips. Parties really stressed me out."
