“It’s a big leap from where I left off last time and it definitely shocked people when they heard the new sound and saw the new image,” she says. “It was very personal; I couldn’t think so much about pleasing other people.
“I was in a place where all I wanted to do was make myself happy. This was a time when all eyes were on me, and people really wanted to hear what I had to say.
“I couldn’t just give them ordinary pop songs – I had to give them depth and a look into who I am and what was going through my head.”
“It’s my mantra,” she explains. “It says it’s OK to make mistakes, just don’t make them twice.”
