The only thing that I saw was incredible acclaim and praise and that’s just me going off of what I’m plugged into which is my fan base of real girls out in the world living their lives and when they saw their favorite actress get up in front of the UN and say what she said, I wish when I was younger, I wish when I was 12 years old I’d been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful, poignant way the definition of feminism because I would’ve understood it and then earlier on in my life I would’ve proudly claimed that I was a feminist because I would’ve understood what the word means. So many girls out there say “I’m not a feminist” cause they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining. They picture like rioting and picketing, it is not that at all, it just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities and to say that you’re not a feminist means that you think men should have more rights and opportunities than women. I just think a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it is I think an incredible thing and I’m happy to live in a world where that happened.

Well I’ve just decided to go for it because that was the gut feeling I got, that was what my intuition was telling me. As a songwriter, I try to stay really open to intuition and inspiration and impulses. I knew I had to make this album the way it has turned out. I knew I wanted it to be different than every album that I’ve done before and out of respect for the country music community who I love and adore, I felt it was best to just be honest with them about what the album was and just be very very truthful about the fact that it is a pop album.
