I think for me, beauty is sincerity. I think that there are so many different ways that someone can be beautiful.. You know, someone so funny that it makes them beautiful no matter how they look, because they’re sincere in it.. Or somebody who’s really emotional, and moody and thoughtful and stoic, but that makes them beautiful because that’s sincerely who they are. Or you look out into the crowd and you see someone so happy that they’re smiling from ear to ear, and that sincerity comes through. I think that’s what makes somebody beautiful. And I’ve never felt like there’s just one way to be beautiful, you know, tall or short, straight hair or curly, or whatever some people have their definitions of “their types.” You know, for me I think that when I meet someone and there’s that magical thing about them that makes them unforgettable, that they’re sincere and honest in whoever they are, be that funny, happy, sad, going through a rough time, sarcastic.. I think that these personality traits that come through when somebody is really sincere is what makes them beautiful.
Hey hey hey. Just think, while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars, and the dirty dirty cheats around the world you could’ve been getting down to this sick beat.
Two years gives you enough time to grow, and to change, and to change your priorities, change where you live, change your hair, change what you believe in, change who you hang out with, what's influencing you, what's inspiring you. And in the process of all of those changes that happened in the last two years, my music changed. I'm thinking about how this new album is a bit of a rebirth for me because it's so new, I've never really made these kinds of changes before. And having been born on December 13th of 1989... this album is called 1989.
“Everybody has that point in their life where you hit a crossroad and you’ve had a bunch of bad days and there’s different ways you can deal with it and the way I dealt with it was I just turned completely to music.”
