"Hate is a powerful emotion. Hate not only destroys people around us; it also erodes our own character. No matter how good you are to people, they will judge without knowing you or what you’ve been through."
The most powerful thing you can do as a woman in music is be authentic. How you present yourself is nobody’s business but your own. The stylists have an opinion. The hair people have an opinion. The fans and the management have opinions. Ultimately, you have to trust that you are the safe-keeper of yourself. Talking like that makes me want to vomit all over myself, but it’s true. There’s nothing I’ve done that I feel a lot of regret over because I stuck to my guns, even when it got uncomfortable - and it will get uncomfortable because you’re going up against the wall. - Shirley Manson, Garbage
