Quote of the day: “I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, ‘You’re a sellout!’ But that’s not what it is… A lot of pop songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.” – Miley Cyrus
