"When I wrote the song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind," she said. "I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I'm not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time and I obviously find it really sad now. I support the women who have come forward. I think they're really brave to do that."

I just feel like she's very sexy, very easy listening. I like that she was a visual artist at first and I can really tell that she directs everything," she said.

"Jhene is a really good person," the "Lust for Life" songstress continued. "I admire that she has like shared her stories in her interviews and in her records and it's like very brave. Her voice is also killer. It was crazy that she put 22 tracks in an album."
