"The girl who used to torture me, the ringleader, showed up backstage at one of my concerts in Newark. I looked at her and said, 'I know you.' And she went, 'Ahhh, I'm so sorry for having tortured you in high school!' and I said, 'I'm so over it. Actually, thank you, because you gave me the impetus to be successful, because I just wanted to show you I was so much more than what you ever made me out for.'"
