Some people think ‘Higher’ is about literally getting high, and other people think it’s more in a spiritual sense. To me, it’s all that.

I was the youngest of the house that I grew up in, so I feel like, as the youngest, you have it pretty good. At the same time, I guess I required a lot of attention, being afraid of so many different things. So I was never seeking attention; I wanted the opposite.
