“This is your first album of all pop songs, are you at all worried that you will lose some of the country fans?”

I am not worried about that. I’m really in touch with my fans and I know what they like. What my fans in general were afraid of was that I would start making pop music and I would start writing smart lyrics, where I would stop writing emotional lyrics. And when they heard the new music they realize that that wasn’t the case at all.

口语中一句话里同时使用主语宾语状语从句,其实很容易做到有木有!

 

“You fans feel so personal about you, and you’re the only one I know who invites people back into your house, do you still do that?”

Yea, I just…I think I wanted to play this entire album for the fans long before it came out. I wanted it to be like this little secret society gathering in living rooms and so I decided to have them in my houses.

I wanna come up with these many ways that we can spend time together and bond, because it keeps me normal, keeps my life feeling manageable.

“Is it your life at all normal?”

No, not at all, and that’s why when I go online and I go on Instagram and I see, you know, a post from Emma who lives in XXX and she’s talking about how her day was at school that day. That helps me. (“You still do that?”) It’s the only thing that keeps me not feeling overwhelmed by the abnormality in my life.

feel overwhelmed by sth. 被…压倒;不知所措的

abnormality 异常;畸形     高分词汇

 

What’s the most abnormal?

The most abnormal thing about my life is having sort of a crowd’s form everywhere you go, and just everywhere. So that starts happening and you’ll have to take security everywhere you go. All of a sudden you realize that you have not been alone truly for 5 years.

 

If a guy shares his experience in writing, he’s brave. If a woman shares her experience in writing, she’s oversharing. And she’s overemotional or she might be crazy or “Watch out! She will write a song about you!” That joke is so old and it’s coming from a place of such sexism.

oversharing/overemotional 过度分享/过度情绪化

sexism 性别歧视

 

It seems like when I moved to New York, love and heartbreak and all the themes that used to be main factors in my music kind of faded to the background. Of course love is still very interesting to me as a writer but (“as a writer not as a beautiful young woman?”) not right now, (“no?”) I just, like, I’m just really happy and I’m really protective of that.

faded to the background 地道表达生活内容的变化

protective of sth. 保守提防某事
