Behind every girl's favorite song there is an untold story.
I have never been a material girl. My father always told me never to love anything that cannot love you back.
We are living in a material world and I'm a material girl.
The saddest thing for a girl to do is dumb herself down for a guy.

I'm working for a woman, not a lady. What I hate the most is that "lady" talk. You know, when I read a review, "The lady wears a Bottega Veneta. . . ." What lady? It's the same girls who are walking the runway an hour later elsewhere. But probably it is just the sophistication in our material, the nuance of the color, or the quality of the makeup or the hair that make people think that way.

When I originally wrote "Jealousy," it was more like an exercise to try to write a girl-group kind of pop song. It was really contrary to most of the material I'd ever written.

When it came time to make the new record, I decided to make peace with the song and have fun with it.
Well, the difference in working with the Supremes and the other girl groups like Martha and the Vandellas, and the Marvelettes, you let the material dictate to you, uh, really, how you worked with the group, and with the talent, and the personalities. All of these things was instrumental in having all of the groups, uh, retain their own identity. Uh, and, and the material had a lot to do with it, you know.

The Drama Years is filled with heart-stirring stories, just-been-there advice from recent teens and practical, actionable tips for parents.
