ELLE’s April cover girl on media scrutiny, her fears, and those revealing lyrics.
On who she thinks is hot: “Um, well…Taylor Lautner.”
On whether she’s really “fearless”: “I overthink everything. I overanalyze everything.”
On one of her biggest fears: “Me making a bunch of bad decisions and embarking on a painful, slow, devastating tailspin.”
On media scrutiny: “I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things. And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny. Like, if I go to a bar, even if I’m not drinking, who’s to say that a source isn’t going to say that I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing? So it’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”
