"Going into the industry as a female, I knew I was going to be faced with all the wrong kinds of criticisms for all the wrong reasons. With that said, I'm really bored of the comments about my clothes and how I choose to look on stage. I am a SINGER, listen to me sing.
"I am not here to be easy on your eyes. I am here to sing my songs. I don't like addressing things like this, but I felt as though I needed to say something this time. I want to remind all the people who look up to me that it's ok to express themselves however they choose to. No matter what you do, someone will have something to say, but it's how you deal with it that matters. It's just noise, turn it off. I definitely have and it's a lot more fun this way. Trust me."
