I love In-N-Out!

I quite like doing laundry. I find it quite like relaxing.
All my favourite pop songs are the most stupid ones, the ones that are the most obvious.

The scenes in 'The Virgin Suicides' where Elle Fanning is ice skating are really amazing.
Females should stand by each other, especially in an industry which seems to try so hard to pin us up against each other and make us fight. It's not about that for me. I refuse to be sucked into a twisted world of insecurity and lose who I am.
I actually think it doesn't even matter what age you are or what sex - though that does play into it sometimes - you always have to fight in any kind of creative world because nobody knows your own brain and your own creative ideas better than you do.

In the '90s, there was always this continuous pitting of women against each other in the media, trying to make them battle it out.

My one thing is respect. I don't care about anything else. You should respect everyone around you - the people who work for you, peers. Be classy.
To me, 'X Factor' is like Vegas. Fake, twisted, but kind of wonderful. Maybe I'm sick, but I find the whole thing quite funny sometimes.
I definitely went through a phase where I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger... But I certainly wasn't very good at it.
People would always ask me how I came up with my music and what it felt like to make music, and I would always see colours, and then I found out that that was synaesthesia. It helps me understand songs and what I like.
My family is average. I didn't have a crazy life as a kid.
There's something about girls together, uniting, that I just thought was cool.
Making my first record, I was really inspired by all the color palettes Sofia Coppola has in her films.
On my first album, I felt like, if it was going to be turned into a movie, it would have been directed by Sofia Coppola. She creates this kind of pastel-colored palette that's very whimsical but also very stagnant. And that's really how I heard the record.
I get on with people. I don't hang out with people who aren't nice. It's like, be real or go home. — © Charli XCX
I get on with people. I don't hang out with people who aren't nice. It's like, be real or go home.
I think it's cool to be a rock star; I don't think there are many. There aren't many who speak out and take risks. And I think that's important.
I always see my songs in colors, and I'm often more inspired by movies and photographs than I am by other songs when I write my music. I'm also inspired by fashion, and I want my music to be a visual painting of what's in my mind.
I've always said that if I couldn't be myself, first I'd want to be Eminem and then a Disney kid.
I just feel like the songs I write lend themselves to this girl-power feeling, and those are the artists that I looked up to when I was younger.
One time, I gave Chris Martin a My Little Pony for good luck. He said, 'Oh, you should keep it,' but I was like, 'You guys probably need it a lot more than I do.' I said that to Coldplay!
I think I'm a girl's girl in the sense that I support women a lot, and I'm definitely all for girl power, but I think I'm quite a tomboy at heart - even though I love my fashion and dressing up, I think my essence is very boyish.
From the moment I stepped into this industry, I've always had to fight for my ideas and for my voice to be heard.
There are some signs that can indicate she might be interested. Woman might do subconscious things like play with their hair or orient their body towards your direction.

You should respect the people you are around. — © Charli XCX
You should respect the people you are around.

I think it's awesome when a woman is in control of everything she's doing, especially in an industry like this where people think that doesn't happen often, but it really does - well, from my knowledge and how I manage my own project.
I think what women think is sexy is what is sexy. Girls eating pizza are massively sexy.
I've been really inspired by Paris Hilton, small dogs, and a glitter, luxe lifestyle.
