See, that’s the thing: I already felt like I had made it. Me living in New York in an $1,100-a-month apartment, paying my own rent, doing my own shows, dressing how I liked, singing how I liked, doing my hair how I liked—I already felt like I had made it. So when I say, 'I don’t care about money,' I only and always have just wanted to make music and do it my way. I can’t explain my nerve. I don’t know where it comes from. The 'Edge of Glory' video, me dancing on the fire escape— I used to get high and dance on the fire escape and imagine that I was a star.
