Where are you now in terms of your personal life?
I feel confident and in control of my life. I also feel I’ve understood how to deal with the public side of my life and not let that affect me. I’ve lived my life in the public eye, and I’ve had to figure out how to do that. Ultimately, I am 24 and figuring out my life. I feel confident, I feel empowered, I feel in control. I want my fans to see that I’m not 16 anymore and I’m evolving in a way I feel good about myself and would like people to feel the same way about me. important lessons learned? The most critical lesson is that my identity and my happiness have nothing to do with my work or whatever success I have. I also know I can’t live my life according to what people expect of me and that I have to follow my own path. That was a very liberating change in my way of looking at things. I know how to separate my life from my career and that’s made everything a lot easier and simpler for me. lastly, can you describe your ideal man? I want to be with someone who is sweet and reliable and who can express his love as much in his actions as in his words. He has to be someone I can trust and who is also going to respect me. And he has to be able to make me laugh!
