My message behind this album was finding the beauty in imperfection. I have this image of this trophy and me accepting these awards and kind of training myself to be this champion. And at the end of the day when you go through all of these things, is it worth it? I mean, you get this trophy and you’re like ‘I basically starved. I have neglected all of the people that I loved. I conformed to what everybody else thinks I should be, and I have this trophy. What does that mean?’ The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid. All of the time that I lost being on the road, in the studios, as a child.
