On getting proposed to after a breakup:
“How f***ing romantic. Sure, pop a ring on my finger and make it all better. I can buy myself a f***ing ring.”
On her talent getting in the way of relationships:
“If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is. That’s who I am, and I don’t apologize for it. But it’s a hideous place to be in when someone that you love has convinced you that you will never be good enough for anyone. I had a man say to me, ‘You will die alone in a house bigger than you know, with all your money and hit records, and you will die alone.’”
On moments of self-doubt:
“Even though I know it sounds a bit Hallmark, whenever I [was] in that kind of stressful, worthless moment, I would think, I’ll show you.’”
On her life in short:
She sums up her love life by saying, “I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it’s my mind.”
