“My dad grew up the opposite of me,” she explains. I think that’s why my relationship with fame and success is very different from his. The fact that he felt loved by a large audience touched him emotionally more than I ever have. When he feels special or important, it’s like healing a childhood wound, when I was always made to feel like a star. It makes me emotional.”
