“At 12 years old, I was bullied in school. Girls were calling me fat, so I thought,’That’s the reason I don’t have any friends.’ So I stopped eating. I became very weight-conscious, and I lost 30 lbs. I went down to 95 lbs. I’ve battled depression from a young age. I never found out until I went into treatment that I am bipolar [a disorder that causes dramatic and sometimes violent mood swings.] At first I was like, ‘What does that even mean?’ But looking back, it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic I was writing seven songs in one night…that’s why I wasn’t happy when everything in my life was great. I’m being treated for it with medication and therapy.”  People Magazine
