  • On her Bangerz tour being good for kids: "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids. They're going to be exposed to art most people don't know about. People are taught to look at things so black-and-white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted, where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art."
  • On calculating her self-image: "I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I’m trying to tell girls, like, 'F*ck that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blond hair and big titties. That’s not what it’s about. It's like, personal style.’ I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock sh*t where we just don’t care."
  • On her idols: "Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett — Jett’s the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren’t supposed to wear leather pants and, like, f*cking rock out. And she did."
  • In defense of using black dancers and little people in her onstage performances: "I don’t give a sh*t. I'm not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored t-shirts. You know, it’s like, I’m not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have."
