A lot of people who I think will relate to this song are people who are dealing with never really feeling cool with themselves because other people make them feel like they don’t fit in when one thing I’ve learned in this whole process is you can get everything you want in life without ever feeling like you fit in. Selling millions of records doesn’t make me feel cool. It makes me feel proud, and like I got a lot of people on my side, and I’ve worked really hard, you know. But, I don’t think it’s the most important thing in life, to fit in. I think the most important thing in life is to dance to the beat of your own drum and to look like you’re having more fun than the people who look cool, like they fit in.
