I love inspiring people, and I love making good music, but I don't stress about it. I don't think I'm ever going to win a Grammy, and I'm OK with that. For me, my music is fun. I don't really take my music that serious. Acting is something I work really, really hard on that I throw myself into a situation where I do work 18 hours a day. And I do hope to see longevity. I don't want people to look at me as someone who is just this celebrity person. I usually never sleep in past 10, unless it's the weekend and I had a night out with my friends, because I like to start my day. I talk so much on stage - too much. I always get in trouble. But it's just the best to be able to connect with people. Sometimes fans for male pop stars or actors can be a little crazy. I was that way with Jesse McCartney and N'Sync. The guys that do have the confidence to hit on me are not necessarily my type, but they think they are because I'm a pop star; I sing songs, do movies. I like to feel sexy and confident on stage. I don't wash my hair every day, which may sound gross, but it's actually really bad for my hair. My strength is translating emotion because I'm such a feeler. I'm not the best singer - like, I know I'm not Celine Dion. P. Diddy gave me his valet ticket once... because he thought I was the valet lady. I like to be adventurous. I love traveling and touring, but I have to bring the little things that make me feel at home. I just try to make my home everywhere I go as much as I possibly can. I have a pretty healthy perspective on what my past music was. I'm young: I've lived my life in the public eye, and I've had to figure out how to do that. It's awful walking into a restaurant and having the whole room look at you, knowing what they're saying. I was diagnosed with lupus, and I've been through chemotherapy. It's so disappointing that I've become a tabloid story. I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer, because I would love to date older guys. It's insane how much press my Instagram will get. It's weird, in a way, that I can dictate the agenda - but I love being able to have a say in all of that. For a while, my private life was the most talked about thing. One of my favorite album covers is Miguel's 'Wildheart.' I was obsessed with 'The Wizard of Oz.' My mom would still be mad if I didn't say 'please' and 'thank you.' Every day, I start with a workout; I do vocal lessons, I do piano lessons. I love being able to work with other artists I admire, but I have a lot to do on my own before I am willing to make it all about embracing other people. My family and I want to start our own organization to work on global warming and a couple of other things. Egos turn me off, big time. Dancing allows me to go away and not have to think of what I'm doing next. I've never been part of a movie I would watch over and over again, and I'm really proud of it. Disney is a machine, and I'm grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more. It's not like I've wanted to go out and look for someone. I'm not really good at that. I drive the same car that I've driven since I was 16. That's who I am. I'm super laid back. I'm from Texas. I love my family. I dress like a 30-year-old woman. I used to say that I wanted someone cute and nice, an actor too, so he'd get it. But now I think it would be good for me to date someone who's not in the business. I love Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Katy Perry. They are all about being themselves and I love that. I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, 'I want to look like them!' This is a very superficial job. I sit in a chair for two hours and get hair and makeup done and talk about myself in interviews. That's a very vain thing to do. And I do get caught up in it sometimes. I'm going to hang out with people, and I'm going to explore myself, and I'm okay with that. I'd love to do my own music for sure. I'd love to have a band. I wanted to do things that I knew were going to be me. I love what I do, I can't imagine doing anything else, but ultimately, my goal is to be happy and have a family. That's my life. I found strength in what hurt me. And in my family - that's my strength as well. I'm truly grateful to be hurt as many times as I have, because I'm happy! I think life is very, very, very hard, and I've never had anything come super easy to me, no matter what people may think. I still feel like I'm the girl from Texas. I have a weakness for anything savory or bad guys. Bad boys. I think I take my job seriously, but I enjoy my life and I enjoy my friends, and I never really allowed myself to do that before. So I just kind of want to party with everyone. I really - I just wanna sing. And I wanna show people that I can sing. I believe in love - yes, I'm one of those girls. Most of my friends believe in love. I don't actually like dates. I get awkward as I never know what to do. I'm going to try to pull a Natalie Portman. Natalie went to Harvard while shooting 'Star Wars'. I don't know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her - that seems like a bunch of stress right there. I'm a kid, and a breakup is normal. I have to go through the emotions and feel it out. I love Katy Perry! She gave me a song for my second album. I've been working since I was 7. I think it's healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself, and challenge yourself; it's important to do that. There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press. People are so mean, it's exhausting. There was certain points shooting 'Spring Breakers' where I wasn't uncomfortable at all, and that let me be free. It allowed me to play with what I love, so that's what I wanted to do with my music. My mom always told me if I love what I'm doing, and I'm having fun, then just continue to do it. But if it's not fun for me anymore, and I'm miserable, then I'm going to go back to Texas and quit it all, to be honest. At the end of the day, I have to wash my face. I hate going to bed after a long day not washing my face. It's something I've grown into. When I was younger, I didn't care. I'm just happy to do projects I'm passionate about. I don't like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I'm eighteen, and I'm going to fall in love. I never really said I want to be a role model. But then when it happened I was so down for it. Being cool, having a 'cool' energy is just not attractive to me. I like to find things that are unconventional and make them look classic, because if I'm forcing something, you can just tell. I want someone honest, someone who's very sweet to my family and friends, and polite to the other people around me. I love running away for a few months and creating a record. I always have water, tons of water. It's even in my bathroom because I used to be so bad at drinking water, and I want to stay hydrated. I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me. There's nothing wrong with a woman being comfortable, confident. I cannot drive very well. I drive slow and very safe. I don't know cars that well. I like to have fun. I like to hang out. I've been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17. My fans are so important to me, and I would never want to disappoint them. I'm a young woman, and I'm growing up and trying to do it in a way I feel comfortable with. My attention span is all over the place, and I overthink things. I'm an insomniac. I'm in love with love and totally believe in marriage, but that's not even on my radar right now. I am not putting energy into dating. I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out. Everywhere you go you hear things that are untrue. You've just got to learn that if I don't say it, physically out of my mouth, on camera, it's not true. I have a lot of wonderful people in my life - probably five, collectively - who I can tell everything to. My perfect guy wears converse, is totally laid back, and doesn't worry about being cool. If you have three people in your life that you can trust, you can consider yourself the luckiest person in the whole world. I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful. The older I've gotten, the more I've learned that I have to open myself up to all opportunities. Maybe I'll get burned and not meet the right people, but I won't know until I do it. I don't trust anyone... It's something that I have to live with, and I have to find the balance of who I want in my life and who isn't good for me. People speculate or think what they want to think, but it's been really fun for me to kind of explore what I want to explore. I've learned that I want what I deny. I want someone who is crazy about me, who treats me like a princess. I want the picture-perfect fairy tale stuff. I want to keep pushing myself so I never feel settled. I don't really know if it's going to end up working. I'm stressed out most of the time. I did gain weight, but I don't care. Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you're in your closet crying. It's been like that for me a couple of times, but I only want to learn from those things. I believe in second chances, but I don't believe in third or fourth chances. I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love.
I just try to be the best I can, but I'm human.
I love getting scared. I find myself putting myself in situations like haunted houses or going to a haunted hospital for my birthday. Yes, I've actually done that.
I've said a lot of things: I've said I'm never going to date someone in the business and that I'm never going to date someone outside the business.
You fall in love, and it completely consumes you.
My happiness is not dictated on this business. Once I realized that, everything kind of changed. You want to do what you love, but stuff overshadows it, so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously.
