While rocking sultry poses for the Doug Inglish and Carter Smith photo shoot, the singing trio opened up about everything from what really inspires Taylor's breakup tunes to Miranda's true inspiration.
"All these emotions, everything that's said and all your experiences, that's what inspires the first flicker of a song," the "22" songstress explained. "It's hard being a human being."
While discussing how she stays grounded in the spotlight, the "Over You" singer offered her own little advice. "My message is to be your own person, always - whether you're a stay-at-home mom or a superstar... We all bring something different."
In regards to her new album "Girl on Fire," Alicia revealed, "There's not one thing about 'Girl on Fire' that's like any of my others. I'm in a totally new state of mind."
"This album is like saying I am who I am, not who you want me to be," she added.
