“When I don’t have anything to do, it makes me really anxious. I always like to try to keep myself working or growing, whether that’s like for my career or just mentally, and as a person. I like to always have something to do.”
“Music is just, obviously such a creative thing, that I don’t really like to put any type of orders on it or put myself in a box at all.”
“If I get a spark of inspiration, I’ll go to the studio and get it out, whatever the vibe might be. Sometimes it’s something we love and sometimes it’s something that we might not feel fits right on the project or maybe it’s not right for this time, but you really never know. That’s why you gotta just get it out.”
“You should always be kind. You should always be authentic to yourself. You should always be honest. You should stick to your creative, stick to who you feel you are, stick to what you want to say, and what you want to do and what you want to sound like and how you want to use your voice.”
“Just try to find people that understand and see you for who you are without you having to overly explain yourself.”
“whatever career path you’re taking, it’s never going to be just a straight, ‘Okay, this is what I want to do and now I’m having major success and I’m the best at what I’m doing and I’m reaching all these goals that I’ve set for myself.'”
“It’s always a work in progress, there’s always work to do. There’s always going to be ups-and-downs. You just have to remember if this is your dream and this is your passion, try to be present in the moment and enjoy the journey and appreciate the people that are around you and supporting you.”
“I was a theater kid. That’s how I started singing. I started singing when I was eight years old in a school play for Cinderella.”
“I was such a shy kid. Growing up, I got carried into school, literally, until third grade. In third grade, I started singing and I had gone to audition for this play at school. I auditioned for it because all the other girls were going to audition and I just, you know, I wanted to have friends and I wanted to fit in and be cool. And so I went to audition for this play, and I ended up getting the main role of Cinderella.”
“When I came to LA I was 13, I never was meant to officially move here. I had basically maxed out everywhere I could perform on the island, and I really was telling my parents I wanted to just explore the music industry to see what it’s about. I had never been in a recording studio. I had never seen how songs were written. I didn’t know anything.”
“I was never really like a starstruck person, I like, I don’t remember ever feeling, and even now I don’t ever feel like, “Oh my god, like so and so’s here.” I just, that’s never really been my vibe. I think maybe because I’ve always had such a strong work ethic. That’s what makes me happy and that’s what makes me excited, not really big names if that makes sense.”
“I think the coolest thing about touring and performing is being able to do meet and greets and see the fans before the show and then get to go out there and see all their faces in the audience.”
“I was so excited to kind of be a voice for the gay community because I know and appreciate that the LGBTQ community is such a big part of my fanbase.”
“I just think love is love and it doesn’t matter if you like a boy or you like a girl, or whatever the case may be. Love is just everything, so you don’t have to play it a certain type of way if that makes sense. Love doesn’t have a stereotype.”
“I knew that there is no point in me doing this, if the music that’s coming out isn’t my soul and isn’t connected to me and my life, because I’m the one who has to get up there and sing it. I have to perform it. I have to talk about it and it’s wrong to talk about stuff that I don’t connect with.”
“I’ve been told so many times that I have to be urban, or to be cool, or more pop, or to be more in the middle. And I’m like, “Guys, just stop.” Let me just create, and it’s going to be what it is and that’s fine.”
“I’m still grateful for those opportunities and I learned a lot from my entire experience with every song. When I look back on that work, it’s a good feeling, because I was able to learn so much at such a young age. Look, I’m happy that I got to get in and be creative. It’s all just a learning experience and it’s all good.”
“I don’t like to wait. I don’t like being slow. That gives me anxiety. I want to get in, I want to make it and I want to put it out. Sometimes we go in and we write the song in 10 minutes, and sometimes it takes an hour.”
“I’m listening to so much stuff. I love Khalid. I think he’s amazing; I love his melodies. They’re so incredible.”
” Ariana [Grande], I always love Ari. I would love to [collaborate with her]. I’m so in love with her voice and I’m so happy that she’s another artist out there that is so vocally talented. It’s dope, too, to see her growth as an artist. It’s amazing.”
“I feel more secure in what I want. You can’t sway me anymore. I know what my voice is, and I know what I want to talk about. And I want to be heard. So now, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to talk about what’s real to me.”
“I loved being covered up head-to-toe because so many times when I go to do photo shoots, people want to me to wear outfits that are more revealing. There’s still a time and place for a bikini moment. I’m an island girl after all, but you can be sexy and cool and different without showing skin or being risqué.”
“I would love to have my own clothing line one day and now I definitely feel more prepared for that.”
“Fashion really helps me feel confident. I have so many days where I feel really shy or maybe I don’t know how to express myself in the right way. Or the way I’m communicating isn’t coming off right. But I feel like if I have a good outfit on that I feel good in, then I’m able to do everything else just so much better.”
“My fashion has just always kind of explained who I am as a person and as an artist.”
“If you look at any great artists, the way they dress is a huge part of the entire package they’re putting out into the world. The same goes for me.”
“Getting to be around other people in the industry or when you go to events or being in Hollywood in general, you’re right — you are exposed to so much more fashion and trends. There was a lot more access and it really inspired me.”
“A lot of the stuff that I wear isn’t high-end. I like to mix mid-level, high, low. Fashion is fashion. You don’t have to spend a million dollars.”
“Rihanna’s a perfect example of someone who does music, she does acting, she’s in fashion, she does makeup. With being creative, you can’t put borders on it. You kind of fall in love with every little aspect. And I would love to have my own fashion line one day. We’ll see.”
“When I first started out, my style was a lot more street-driven and maybe a little more urban. I still have elements of that. I think I gravitate toward more feminine, girly stuff in my style now. It’s always been a mix of street, girly, tomboy and feminine.”
Pia Mia feels blessed to be where she is now and owes it all to her destiny. Let’s keep on showering this beautiful and talented singer with the love and support she rightfully deserves.
