ADELE: The planet’s most beloved artist is far more than a voice – she’s a one-name-will-do-it, total-package superforce.
TAYLOR SWIFT: “All these emotions, everything that’s said and all you experience, that’s what inspires the first flicker of a song. It’s hard being a human being.”
ALICIA KEYS: “This album is about saying I am who I am, not who you want me to be.”
ANGEL HAZE: “I like to talk about controversial things because music should be about whatever the artist believes in.”
PAT BENATAR: “If someone had told me I’d still be doing this at 60, I’d have laughed in their face. But we love playing. It’s not a choice. It’s like breathing: If you don’t do it, you’re dead.”
JESSIE WARE: “Who knows if people will even care about me next year. It they don’t, I’d still be happy with what I’ve done.”
MIRANDA LAMBERT: “My message is to be your own person, always – whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a superstar.”
GRIMES: “You could make an SNL skit about all the weird names that people have called my sound.”
HAIM: “We still practice in our parents’ living room. If it’s not broken, why fix it?”
PINK: “I will always have a cause or a reason to fight. I do tire of the ‘bad girl’ thing, but I can’t say it’s not true.”
