On Zac: “I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up. Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares. Then I realized that’s not what that’s about. ‘Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.’”
On going to Catholic mass at Hillsong with Austin: “It feels like Arcade Fire — it’s epic like that. They really focus on you having your own personal relationship with Jesus, which is wonderful.”
On her spirituality: “I’m a definite hippie. I’m literally my happiest self when I’m dancing half naked on a grass field listening to Led Zeppelin.”
