For an entertainer it is always a good quality to keep fans guessing and she does this very well. The talented entertainer whose rise to fame embodies the classic struggling artist to riches existence revealed in interviews how some fans who listen to some of her songs might think of her as downbeat and when they look at pictures of her body adorned with its tattoos automatically stereotype her as a tough, hard-edged woman but upon meeting her they are surprised to find a nice, upbeat performer and person.
The contradiction between her outside image and actual personality is a reality which some entertainment fans suspect makes her a very appealing performer to fans who like to know a performer is more than what they appear on the surface.
She is enjoying life as an in-demand performer who is constantly on tour despite how exhausting life on tour can be as she remembers what life was like as a struggling, starving artist when she just moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles and she had to survive as a waitress. Difficult struggles make eventual success very good and her story of having only $5 left after paying her bills each month early in her career allows her to appreciate being tired from touring and being able to perform on stage instead of being broke.
This complicated singer is a performer who has beaten the odds and has become a popular concert act as illustrated by her upcoming U.S. tour with Ed Sheeran.
