❝ I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4am of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends. We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. We forget the loves and the betrayals alike, forget what we whispered and what we screamed, forget who we were.
❝ You know, growing up in public I see [being famous] as kind of an exaggerated version of what a non-famous teenager might go through because… when you’re a teenager you do define yourself so much by other people, and at least for me it would feel so much like it was me against the world, so I guess part of the reason you start to hate your hometown by senior year (if not earlier) is just because you are so tired of being surrounded by these former versions of yourself, and these people who knew you when you liked that band and shopped at hot topic and stuff like that, so talking to someone like Miley Cyrus about [being famous]… it’s something that we all deal with and then Miley or Lorde just deal with it on an extreme scale.
