“You don’t win by being really famous … I don’t think that really helps make good work. And I’ve always been aware of that,” she explained in the interview. “It’s hard. It’s really – it’s all body language – the subtlety, the angles. I don’t know the angles.”

The 20-year-old explained that in order to navigate her fame, she has to be true to herself.

“No one wants to see me try to be a cheerleader because I’m not that,” she said. “I’m very comfortable at a library or a studio. Those are my places, so I think, you know, just to keep the focus on the work and the words has always felt like the right thing to me.”
