  1. On her transition from teen sensation to grown-up star. "I just try to go through the transition in a very natural and private way. I try my best to keep my mistakes and the things I am learning to myself. I want all of the focus to be on my albums, my films, or my charity work."
  2. On the cause particularly dear to her heart as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. "I started working with UNICEF about three years ago because I worked on a children’s show... I felt like I was able to speak to the children. I was able to take trips with them and I fell in love with the company."
  3. On her Hollywood idols. "I look up to Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone. They both remain true to themselves and focus on their work. I appreciate that."
  4. On where she keeps her trophies. "I keep them in my mom's office because she likes to look at them."
  5. On reading about herself on the Internet. "Yes, I read about myself every once in a while. Sometimes it is nice, and sometimes it is not."
