It can be hard for the cute girl. I was blond, cute, broke. I was beat up. I was thrown inside lockers. I was burned with cigarettes. My hair was lit on fire.
I definitely shut down sometimes. I always just go into my own little cocoon and write, and I surround myself with as much music as possible.
