I'm the kind of person who always likes to be doing something.

I liked being a minor because you can't get into trouble. Now I just have to try and behave myself.

I don't believe war is a way to solve problems. I think it's wrong. I don't have respect for the people that made the decisions to go on with war. I don't have that much respect for Bush. He's about war, I'm not about war - a lot of people aren't about war.

I don't want to be compared to britney,ashlee,hilary or lindsay. i want to be compared to me.

People are like, 'Well, she doesn't know the Sex Pistols.' Why would I know that stuff? Look how young I am. That stuff's old, right?

I'm just coming out and I'm going to clearly be myself - I write what I feel, I never worry what others think.

My dream was always to hop up on stage in front of my fans every night and perform.

Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.

You're who you are and if people don't like who you are, all they're going to get is who you are.

To understand me, you have to meet me and be around me. And then only if I'm in a good mood - don't meet me in a bad mood.

I won't change anything because I think the most important thing is being yourself and that's what I'm going to continue to do.
