Tate McRae tells Dork magazine that she prefers singing about her feelings than talking about them. “I feel like it’s way easier for songwriters to talk about their feelings through songs than in real life. And that’s especially true for me. I never know how to put things in words, and I can’t even argue with people because I can’t wrap my head around the situation and form a very strong opinion. Until I go a write about it, and then I have it. Everything is clear once I write a song about it.”
Ritt Momney tells MarquetteWire.org that he had some musical influences growing up. "Early James Blake was definitely influential to me. Like, listening to his self-titled album maybe freshman or sophomore year of high school, I hadn’t heard anything like that.

I’m also inspired by Feist’s melodies and production style especially on the album “Pleasure.”"

And then, people would be like, ‘Oh, she’s a diva.’ ... it’s like when men express their opinions or defend themselves — or are directing something and making notes on something, they’re brilliant. And they’re genius at it. And yet, it’s just so not the same thing with women, which I hope we can work on fixing. And of course that’s not always the case. It’s not always that way. But it does make it kind of -- It makes you want to quiet down a little bit."
Dua Lipa tells Vogue magazine that she tries to keep her relationship with Anwar Hadid relatively private. "We have all these incredible memories and experiences, and if there’s something that we want to share together, then okay, that’s fun.

It’s a little bit of give and take, trying to find the right balance of being so excited and being in love, and wanting to share that with the people around me, but at the same time not wanting to put too much out there. I want to be able to just be happy in this relationship without having other people’s opinions."
