“Thank you guys so much. In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically, 100% honest with all of you. I think it's safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life whether I like it or not, and I had to stop. 'Cause I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I don't wanna see your bodies on Instagram. I wanna see what's in your heart. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore. All that I can say from the bottom of my heart is I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day, with people that I love. And I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don't know what I did to deserve you.
But if you are broken,
you do not have to stay broken.
And if that's anything, whether you respect me or not, that's one thing you should know about me, is I care about people. And thank you so much for this, this is for you.”
