I hate the bad rap that people give my parents. Because they are just parents, really, at the end of the day trying to stand up for their daughter and themselves.

I think it's important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it's great I get to travel the world with my daughter.

Joyce Carol Oates
I would never share my daughter's wardrobe. Every five years you have to go through your wardrobe and say, 'This is possible, this is not possible.' But you have to be happy with yourself.
