Personal Quotes (8)

You have to be thankful and I think being in this business is one of the most important things is to give back because there's no better feeling than knowing that your work is being appreciated by people.
One of the most terrible feelings in the world is knowing that someone else doesn't like you. Especially when you don't know what you've done to deserve it.
I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it's just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I've dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn't expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I'm just a nice Italian girl from Boca.
[on Twitter trolls] Oh, they're evil as hell! I don't even block them anymore, because I feel like it's giving them negativity in return. So I just let it happen and forgive them and move on. Those people are fighting their own battles.
A lot of times, women are labeled as a bitch or a diva for having a vision and being strong and using their voice, and it's just not the case. You can be strong and be friendly. [We] don't have to be just one thing, you know? Women can love to read a book and have sex.
SNL was the most fun I've ever had in my entire life. I love being able to make fun of myself. I love being able to put on a different mask. I love singing, of course, but I think that making people laugh and feel like they don't have to take everything so seriously is even more fulfilling to me.
I've never looked at love as something that I need to complete me. I would like to be complete on my own first and fall in love with somebody who is also complete. You can still celebrate and be totally obsessed with each other, but I want to feel a hundred percent myself so that I can love that person better.
I hate Americans. I hate America.
