You reflect on the people who used to be in your life, and it's like, 'Wow, I can't believe that person was ever really in my life.' But people are put into your life for seasons, for different reasons, and to teach you lessons.
Being cool, having a 'cool' energy is just not attractive to me.
My perfect guy wears converse, is totally laid back, and doesn't worry about being cool.
Success is nothing if you don't have the right people to share it with; you're just gonna end up lonely.
We only have one life, and it is very precious, and there's a lot we can do, and there's a lot we should do.
I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful.
I'm human, I'm not perfect. I make mistakes all the time, but I guess my job is to keep those mistakes to myself, which I'm already fine doing and just try to be the best I can be for those kids.
I realize everybody wants what they don't have. But at the end of the day, what you have inside is much more beautiful than what's on the outside!
If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken.
You are who you surround yourself with. I know that's such a cliche quote, but it's true.
The day I got my first letter from a fan, I felt like I'd been touched by an angel.
I'm going to try to pull a Natalie Portman. Natalie went to Harvard while shooting 'Star Wars'. I don't know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her - that seems like a bunch of stress right there.
Every now and then, I deserve to say what I feel.
Everywhere you go you hear things that are untrue. You've just got to learn that if I don't say it, physically out of my mouth, on camera, it's not true.
I did gain weight, but I don't care.
If you have three people in your life that you can trust, you can consider yourself the luckiest person in the whole world.
My happiness is not dictated on this business. Once I realized that, everything kind of changed.
I believe in second chances, but I don't believe in third or fourth chances.
You want to do what you love, but stuff overshadows it, so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously.
I want someone who can make me laugh and just be normal and understand my lifestyle and how I wanna live it.
I don't really like dressing up. Some people probably think actresses dress up everywhere they go. I'm in sweatpants half the time with my hair in a ponytail.
I don't like the whole off-and-on thing. I don't like 'taking a break.' Either you're with me, or you're not. And that's how I kind of deal.
I'm going to hang out with people, and I'm going to explore myself, and I'm okay with that.
I want to keep pushing myself so I never feel settled. I don't really know if it's going to end up working. I'm stressed out most of the time.
I don't know if I would've had the opportunity to be on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' if it weren't for my heritage. I realize everybody wants what they don't have. But at the end of the day, what you have inside is much more beautiful than what's on the outside!
I'm a kid, and a breakup is normal. I have to go through the emotions and feel it out.
I learned everything from that show, so it's just a wonderful memory to me. A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on 'Barney', but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show... I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that's a good thing!
The older I've gotten, the more I've learned that I have to open myself up to all opportunities. Maybe I'll get burned and not meet the right people, but I won't know until I do it.
I have a weakness for anything savory or bad guys. Bad boys.
Disney is a machine, and I'm grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more.
Authenticity is my life.
Egos turn me off, big time.
I was a big tomboy.
I love Katy Perry! She gave me a song for my second album.
I have a lot of wonderful people in my life - probably five, collectively - who I can tell everything to.
I just try to be the best I can, but I'm human.
Nobody really knows everything, and they can only assume.
I have my moments of insecurity and figuring out what's going on and what I'm supposed to do, but if you don't push yourself, you're not growing, so where do you go?
I'm not perfect. I make mistakes.
I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don't think that was love. I think as I'm getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I'll experience it. At the moment, I don't know, exactly, if I've been in love.
I want someone honest, someone who's very sweet to my family and friends, and polite to the other people around me.
I cannot drive very well. I drive slow and very safe. I don't know cars that well.
I feel confident. I feel empowered. I feel in control.
It's all about baby steps and trying to figure out how to slowly, elegantly become an adult.
Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you're in your closet crying. It's been like that for me a couple of times, but I only want to learn from those things.
A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on 'Barney', but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show. I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that's a good thing!
You fall in love, and it completely consumes you.
I always have water, tons of water. It's even in my bathroom because I used to be so bad at drinking water, and I want to stay hydrated.
The guys that do have the confidence to hit on me are not necessarily my type, but they think they are because I'm a pop star; I sing songs, do movies. I like to feel sexy and confident on stage.
People speculate or think what they want to think, but it's been really fun for me to kind of explore what I want to explore.
I like to find things that are unconventional and make them look classic, because if I'm forcing something, you can just tell.
There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press.
My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out.
It'd be really nice to sit down with all the people who have hurt me and tell them all the reasons that they've affected me.
I think it's healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself, and challenge yourself; it's important to do that.
I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me.
I found strength in what hurt me. And in my family - that's my strength as well. I'm truly grateful to be hurt as many times as I have, because I'm happy!
I think love is blind. You don't see it; you don't hear what people are saying or what you're saying. You don't see what you're doing. All you see is the person in front of you. That's it.
My fans are so important to me, and I would never want to disappoint them.
Most of the time, people say negative things for a reaction, and I can't even bear to give them the satisfaction. So there's something that I gain from feeling like I'm the bigger person, from walking away from a situation.
I never know if it's the right choice I'm making. It's always weird going from one place to another.
I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.
P. Diddy gave me his valet ticket once... because he thought I was the valet lady.
I never really said I want to be a role model. But then when it happened I was so down for it.
I've had my ring since I was 12 years old. But for me it's not something I want to go around saying, 'Hey, look what I have', It's a promise I made to myself and God. I think some people misinterpret that as a trend and think everyone's getting one.
I love what I do, I can't imagine doing anything else, but ultimately, my goal is to be happy and have a family. That's my life.
My mom would still be mad if I didn't say 'please' and 'thank you.'
I would try to promote something that I loved, and the entire interview would be about my personal life. I would leave a room feeling defeated, feeling embarrassed, but I would always make sure to put that smile on my face because I wasn't going to let them get to me.
I think life is very, very, very hard, and I've never had anything come super easy to me, no matter what people may think.
People are so terrified of other people. I see it in my generation a lot. There's so much anxiety and angst, and the pressure just keeps getting worse.
Every day, I start with a workout; I do vocal lessons, I do piano lessons.
I'm a young woman, and I'm growing up and trying to do it in a way I feel comfortable with.
I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, 'I want to look like them!'
I want people to really be inspired, to believe they can do whatever they want.
I drive the same car that I've driven since I was 16. That's who I am.
My family and I want to start our own organization to work on global warming and a couple of other things.
I used to say that I wanted someone cute and nice, an actor too, so he'd get it. But now I think it would be good for me to date someone who's not in the business.
I love being able to work with other artists I admire, but I have a lot to do on my own before I am willing to make it all about embracing other people.
I love Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Katy Perry. They are all about being themselves and I love that.
I like to be adventurous.
You can't shut down. You can't say, 'What can I do to make this go away?' You have to let it be painful and get through it. Every day gets better. Because when you're in love, you kind of give everything and make that person your life. So every day, you get more and more of yourself back, and it feels better.
I'd love to do my own music for sure. I'd love to have a band.
I don't like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I'm eighteen, and I'm going to fall in love.
I usually never sleep in past 10, unless it's the weekend and I had a night out with my friends, because I like to start my day.
I'm very emotional. When I went through my first breakup, I thought it was the end of the world, and I thought I was going to die if I didn't have him in my life. It was good to cry it out and just scream, or call my friends in the middle of the night crying.
I wanted to do things that I knew were going to be me.
It's awful walking into a restaurant and having the whole room look at you, knowing what they're saying.
I try to be professional; I try to be on time. I don't take anything I have for granted. That's my definition of success.
There was certain points shooting 'Spring Breakers' where I wasn't uncomfortable at all, and that let me be free. It allowed me to play with what I love, so that's what I wanted to do with my music.
My mom always told me if I love what I'm doing, and I'm having fun, then just continue to do it. But if it's not fun for me anymore, and I'm miserable, then I'm going to go back to Texas and quit it all, to be honest.
I still feel like I'm the girl from Texas.
I love how Pilates makes me feel, like it opens me up. I have the hardest time breathing, weirdly enough. Even when I have conversations, I need to work on my breathing, so it's something I enjoy because it's peaceful and it helps me relax.
I talk so much on stage - too much. I always get in trouble. But it's just the best to be able to connect with people.
I really - I just wanna sing. And I wanna show people that I can sing.
I don't actually like dates. I get awkward as I never know what to do.
For a while, my private life was the most talked about thing.
I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love.
I was obsessed with 'The Wizard of Oz.'
I've been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17.
I love traveling and touring, but I have to bring the little things that make me feel at home.
