"It's, like, kind music," she says. "I don't use it to try to hurt people or make them mad. It's definitely there to make you feel better. I try to think about that a lot — especially when shows go wrong and I'm like, 'Why am I doing this?' It's hard to keep an eye on why. But I do want it to help the world. I always wanna help. I don't necessarily think the music's gonna do that but I definitely want it to make people feel better. If they feel like choked out by horrible things, lame things, I want them to feel like they can put those things away for a while if they wanna listen. But it's not like music you'd put on at a party to dance to."
