” I get paralyzingly nervous a lot of times, so I tried bravado. The way I dress and carry myself, a lot of people find it intimidating. I think my whole career can be boiled down to the one word I always say in meetings: ‘strength.’ “


” When I was trying to come up with a stage name, I thought ‘Lord’ was super rad, but really masculine – ever since I was a little kid, I have been really into royals and aristocracy. So to make Lord more feminine, I just put an ‘e’ on the end! Some people think it’s religious, but it’s not. “


” Obviously I’ve had this fascination with aristocracy my whole life. Like, the kings and queens of 500 years ago… they’re like rock stars. If there was a ‘TMZ’ 500 years ago, it would be about, like, Henry VIII and Marie Antoinette and all those people. “


” I’m speaking for a bunch of girls when I say that the idea that feminism is completely natural and shouldn’t even be something that people find mildly surprising, it’s just a part of being a girl in 2013. “


” I find a lot of feminist reading quite confusing and that often there’s a set of rules, and people will be like, ‘Oh, this person isn’t a true feminist because they don’t embody this one thing,’ and I don’t know, often it can be a gray area, and it can be a hard thing to navigate. “


” I think young people are the most creative and the coolest – people that we should be learning from. Even when I’m at a party, I’m analyzing it and thinking about it in the context of how I would write about it. That side of me never switches off. “


” I actually love Twitter and Instagram. I do think it’s so strange to think that 20 years ago, people would never have known personal stuff about musicians and actors, but I like it. As long as I don’t obsessively overshare, it’s OK. And when I do overshare, it’s just, like, me saying, ‘I’ve got $7 in my bank account! “
