In an interview with Rolling Stone

The patriarchy allows men to have bro packs. If you’re a male artist, there’s an understanding that you have respect for your counterparts. It’s assumed that [women] hate each other. Even if we’re smiling and photographed together with our arms around each other, it’s assumed there’s a knife in our pocket.

Encourages Political Debate

In an interview with The Guardian

The thing I can’t get over right now is gaslighting the American public into being like, ‘If you hate the president, you hate America’. We’re a democracy – at least, we’re supposed to be – where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate.

In an interview with The Guardian, when asked if she was dismayed that her politics weren’t clear

I did, and I hate to admit this, but I felt that I wasn’t educated enough on it. Because I hadn’t actively tried to learn about politics in a way that I felt was necessary for me, making statements that go out to hundreds of millions of people.

In an interview with The Guardian

I was living in this Obama eight-year paradise of, you go, you cast your vote, the person you vote for wins, everyone’s happy! This whole thing, the last three, four years, it completely blindsided a lot of us, me included.

In an interview with The Guardian

My privilege allowed me to not have to learn about white privilege. I didn’t know about it as a kid, and that is privilege itself, you know? And that’s something that I’m still trying to educate myself on every day. How can I see where people are coming from, and understand the pain that comes with the history of our world?
Social Justice

Advocates Against Sexism

In an interview with The Guardian, before being interrupted by kitties

I’m kinda used to being gaslit by now, and I think it happens to women so often that, as we get older and see how the world works, we’re able to see through what is gaslighting. So I’m able to look at 1989 and go – KITTIES! [...] Having dealt with a few of them, narcissists basically subscribe to a belief system that they should be able to do and say whatever the hell they want, whenever the hell they want to, and if we – as anyone else in the world, but specifically women – react to that, well, we’re not allowed to. We’re not allowed to have a reaction to their actions.

In an interview with The Guardian, when asked if she would have endorsed Hilary Clinton in the 2016 elections

Of course.

When asked about Donald Trump

We’re a democracy – at least, we’re supposed to be – where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate. I really think that he thinks this is an autocracy.
