You have an incredible amount of social media influence.

at times it can be a bit overwhelming because there are so many different ways to use social media but at the end of the day, it’s just a great way to stay connected to the people who’ve supported me since the beginning. they’ve kind of grown up with me, and I know a lot of them by name and have relationships with a lot of these people. the best part is being able to share bits of my personality so they can see who I really am.

Revival is your fifth album, but for a lot of people it might feel like your first. How is it different this time?

Well, it's complicated to make an artist out of thin air, and I think the first album was a little bit like that. Not to say that I wasn't passionate about music. My dad was a DJ, my mom was obsessed with every type of music possible, and I was onBarneyfor two seasons, singing with a purple dinosaur.

Working with Max Martin is kind of a rite of passage for most pop stars. Why were you hesitant about working with him?

I’ve never really known him, the whole record, I’ve became family with all of my producers and Justin and Julia. It had nothing to do with me being like, “Oh my goodness, I’m too good for Max.” It was like, “I don’t know, I don’t want him to change it!” He ended up making it, obviously, a smash. I don’t even think I was questioning his ability, I was more nervous to see what it was going to be like. Once we talked, he sent all these voice memos and now we have a relationship. It’s going to grow from there.

Tbh?

do you ever see a picture of someone that you used to be so close to and you just remember everything you did together and all the things you said you would do together, all the late night conversations or phone calls and remember all the good things and the bad things both of you have been through together but then you remember that they're just a memory and not in your life anymore
