  1. I have a crazy imagination, and it’s a visual one that can be scary from time to time.
  2. I love mainstream music.
  3. The songs I write are about how I feel and the vibe I’m in. So whether I’m on a tour or at home it’s like all about how you feel in the certain time you sit down.
  4. I’m a huge fan of the Moomins and my fans are called Momins. They’re the best, so creative, talented and sweet — just like Moomins.
  5. I’ve always really liked the idea of an artist name, like a cover-up, even though in my music I’m being very personal in the stuff that I write about.
  6. I think everyone grew up thinking that by their mid-20s they’d have everything sorted out, but I know I don’t.
  7. My parents would use all of their money for us to go new and exciting places, instead of a new television or a big car.
  8. I think books make you think in a different way than movies and documentaries.
  9. I dream of doing something where people are like: ‘That’s different, but it’s still something I can relate to,’ because that’s the way of moving forward.
  10. People find it hard to place me. I’m doing pop, but I’m this weird quirky Dane that used to be in a punk band. And she’s singing about being messed up but at the same time she seems normal? I don’t know.
  11. It’s so important that you are constantly moving. And when things are hard, it will just make you fight harder — that’s what you need to develop as a person, I think.

  14. I don’t know if Kim Gordon does collaborations but I’d love to work with her on something one day.
  15. So many people have opinions and try to guide you, and everyone has the best intentions, but it makes it harder to cut through the noise and be like ‘wow, this is what I really want to do.’
  16. Ever since I was 19, I’ve been in a relationship, to be honest. I always go from one to another, for some weird reason, and I always find someone where I connect on a personal level.
  17. As a teenager my favorite band was Sonic Youth, and everything they did was always obviously them, and always so artistic. There was another layer of meaning, underneath everything, that you could search for.
  18. I really like FKA twigs. She’s wonderful. She’s so cool. Like, insanely cool.
  19. The best pop songs are the ones that show that person’s personality. It’s harder to do those singles because the stars, moon and sun have to align and the audience have to be ready, but it’s worth waiting for it.
  20. I love to watch people not care too much about the choreography, or if they sing perfectly, or if the right label people are there to watch them. It’s just about letting go and being crazy and engaging people in dance and madness — being a human instead of a doll.
