- I think acting is something that I want to make sure that, if I do make that transition, I want to make sure that it's really dramatic, and put my energy into acting, you know, fully instead of trying to balance a whole lot of things at once, 'cause I really don't want to become one of those singer-trying-to-be-actor-but-didn't-really-work kind of thing.
- On becoming a full-time actress
- I don't know, it's not like I was thinking about it being my trademark or whatever it is. I mean I don't think I'll get it removed or anything. But, I don't know - it's part of me, I'm used to it.
- On her beauty mark
- We caught a lot of people off guard, which is cool. And I think we made things more enjoyable for the boyfriends who had been dragged to the concert.
- On opening for Britney Spears
- Our bios are sort of similar, but guys in rock bands all wear T-shirts and jeans and nobody ever says they're all the same.
- On constantly being compared to Avril Lavigne
- If things blow up then that's awesome and if things don't, I still can live a normal life and be able to go to the grocery store without people following me.
- On her career
- I like being very loud and noisy, as the title of my album says.
- I co-wrote all the songs on my album, and co-produced a lot of them as well, So being involved in the creative aspect and not just singing is so important to me because, above everything, I love to create and I love to express myself."
- To me, song writing is so therapeutic, it's just part of my life and I can't go through the day without having some kind of song idea pop into my head where I have to write Sharpie all over my arm trying to remember the song idea."
- Performing, for me, is like oxygen. Performing, for me, is like the only thing that is a constant in my life, because you're in all different places doing all different things, but when I get up on stage, that's where I know exactly what to do, that's where I own it.
- Was Ashlee Simpson nice to me? Yes. She said "hi" very clearly in a nice voice!
