You’re finally back on tour. How does it feel to be back on the road?
I’m so glad that we’re finally able to do this. I feel like I had a life crisis when COVID happened. I wasn’t sure if I could go on tour any time soon again. Touring is probably my favorite thing about what I do. My job is to get out there, meet the fans, and share the music with people. I’m overjoyed to be back.
The last time we met, you were on tour with Katy Perry. Do you feel differently as an artist now? Do you feel more mature?
I don’t feel mature, but I feel like I’m at a very good place with my music. I’ve grown into myself as an artist, and I feel very comfortable with how I express myself in my music, on stage, and in my videos. I’m in a very comfortable and fun place right now.
You’re still quite young and already have your fourth album coming out. Do you feel like you’re still figuring out what it is to be an artist?
Still figuring it out a little bit. The music and the songs themselves that part feels quite solid to me. The times and how you put music out are changing. It’s different to be an artist. You always have to reevaluate what it means to be an artist today, what you’re willing to put into it, and how you want to interact with your audience on social media and everywhere. I think I will always be figuring that part out.
