Question 1: How do you handle having so many sides to yourself as an artist?

Answer: “I don’t do anything but this. I have very few personal relationships, I don’t have many hobbies, I don’t really take vacations; I don’t really do anything but this, all the time. So I’ve committed myself to being two people. I do all the work of the pop star and I do all the work of the alternative homegrown ‘fan relationship’ artist. I do two people’s amount of work.”

Question 4: You were nominated for a Grammy in 2017. What are your memories of that night?

Answer: “One of the most important things in my life was watching Adele start over. It just taught me nothing is that serious. The year before I did the same thing at Madison Square Garden. I was three songs in and everything failed, so I had to start over. And I beat myself up over it. Then I watched Adele do it, and I thought, “OK, this happens to everybody. I can’t beat myself up for it anymore.”

Question 5: You’re able to write your songs in 20 minutes? What’s that process like?

Answer: “It usually takes me 20 to 90 minutes to write a song because once I start, I don’t stop. If I start writing a song and you try to have a conversation with me, you’re a bad person. I like when it’s really organic, so I try to knock it out in one shot.”
