'Saturday Night' in particular deals with growing up in a destructive household - how hard is it to confront those emotions when you're songwriting?
"I wanted a song that is the story of my whole life. From what I've read, I'm always seen as the bad girl; the bitchy, sassy, cute bad girl. I've just assumed that everyone must know where it comes from. To act like that, you can't just come from a good place. I realised that not even people who know me most know what I've gone through. I always put on a brave face when I was the most terrified, the most trapped and out of control. That's what 'Saturday Night' is like. I wanted to make a confession of everything I am and all the stuff I've been through.
"I left home at 15 to escape all the bulls**t, but I ran head first into much more trouble. I was taken away by the police for dangerous behaviour, being sedated, almost being committed and sectioned - it was trouble after trouble after trouble. 'Saturday Night' is the way I can present that important part of myself."
