She doesn't think artists release albums as art in 2013, and used Nina Simone as her example of what she aspires to: "I think when Nina Simone put out music, you loved her voice. That's what she wanted you to love. That was her instrument. But you didn't get brainwashed by her day to day live, what her child is wearing...It's not your business. It shouldn't influence the way you listen to her music, the voice, the art, but it does."
