Personal Quote:

I've never talked about who my songs are about, and I won't because...they're written for the sake of personal expression. So with all due respect to whomever may see themselves in my songs - and it happens all the time - I never really comment on it because I write these songs for myself. I don't write them for other people. See more »

Trivia:

When MP3 sponsored one of her concert tours, she was offered $50,000 in cash. Instead, she chose to take it in the form of company stock. When MP3 went public, the value of her shares went into the millions of dollars. See more »
