Q & A::
Q: Is there a story behind the sudden hair cut?
A: She cut her hair because it was bleach so much in order to get a specific shade of blonde for her album jacket cover. It cause a lot of damage to hair, so she went to her stylist and had it cut in a Matilda style. She got in trouble with her company because she didn’t have permission to cut her hair.

Q: How do you find the emotion to sing sad ballads?
A: When she was younger, since she had not experienced a breakup, she used to ask people about their break ups so she could feel the proper emotion when singing about breakups. Now she looks at it from different angles such as losing an object she loved a lot, or the loss of a beloved pet.
