Maybe I think you're cute and funny. Maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you, if you know what I mean.— Ingrid Michaelson

I love you more than I could ever promise because you take me the way I am.

It should be like a driver's license - no one can have an Instagram until they're 18. It's the wild, wild west, the internet.
Music to me is something that I didn't choose;
it was a necessity. I grew up with music, my father is a musician. It makes me happy; it makes people happy.

I try to keeps things pretty light, try to make people laugh.
I find it difficult to keep trying to promote myself. I know that's the whole point of it, to promote my music, but I like to use it to be funny and silly.
