''I loved Fiona Apple. Her first record changed my life. She was such a young girl, with this rich low voice and these mature, lived-a-lifetime lyrics. I just wanted to be like her. Her voice, the way that she wrote, and she played piano.... That really inspired me. Prince was my first concert. I was 5. It's crazy how one person could write so many hits, play so many instruments, have the coolest band, be so little, and have so much bravado.''
