I think I’ve been a bit misunderstood; the first record was more timid than I wanted it to be. I don’t like getting pinned down by sex or how I sound like because it’s not who I am or what I want to be.
I’m a girl from Sweden. I took a lot of risks and went to New York by myself when I was 19 just because I read about it in a few books. I came here knowing nobody, having no money, and now I’m doing all these things like making records and videos every day.

In every person’s life, around 27 to 29 years old, the stars and the planets align themselves to exactly the way they were when you were born. You’re faced with yourself. There’s no running away.
I believe life’s too short for compromises and bad fitting jeans
I don’t think Neil Young has a beautiful voice but it’s something that grabs you and the songs are so good.
You can’t stay in the desert, you go nuts after 24 hours.
