"You gotta be able to change worlds. You need to write on your own and produce your own life. You want to live the dream? You do what you want on your terms. I want every girl in the world to pick up a guitar and start screaming. I'm a catalog artist: I compete with Bob Dylan. I'm driven. I am. I'm driven for some reason. But I don't know where I'm going. My No. 1 thing to work on is not being reactive -- but appropriateness doesn't come easily to me sometimes."
