All the guys want to date her and all the girls want to be her. She is literally a pageant queen. I wrote this song the day I found out that she was bulimic and, you know, that is one of those moments when your heart kinda stops. How can somebody that seems so strong have such a horrible, horrible weakness? Something that is killing her. Luckily, I have talked to her about it and she has gotten help and she is fine now.” (Source: www.songfacts.com)
