On Disney and her split from fiancé Liam Hemsworth
: "When I went through a really intense breakup — you know, I was engaged — and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn't there to carry me anymore or if I didn't have him. And now I'm free of both of those things, and I'm fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself, and I'm totally OK, and that's so much stronger than the person three years ago who would have thought they would have died if they didn't have a boyfriend."
On her connection with fans
: "I have guys and girls that come out, and they're like, 'The only reason I'm able to admit that I'm gay is because you've made me feel like that's OK.' That is so intense, because that is a part of this generation, and I feel like
I am a big part of that change
. Or they know that I've struggled with depression, and that helped them get over theirs. That gives me a big purpose — a reason to wake up in the morning that's bigger than to put on my f*cking feathers and my little outfits."
