"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe
OH MY GOD. God! This is [cute giggle]…uhm I really, really, want to thank my family. I’m so lucky to be able to call my mom, my dad and my brother austin some of my best friends. I don’t know, I try to be kind of self aware about the music that I make and I realize that my album is kind of on the opposite ends of the intense extreme emotional spectrum. Like extremely in love, extremely heartbroken…and those are, those are the crazy emotions and I just wanted to thank you guys for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions. And to the fans who come to the shows, who buy the albums, I just want you to know this one thing: YOU are the longest and best relationship I have ever had. [insert sassy smirk here]
