"I've developed this really close-knit group of girls. Two of my close friends are band mates. My other close friends are Ashley, Claire, Diana, Emma (Stone), and Selena (Gomez). I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they've experienced all of this with me, and they've also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we've stayed close."
