Still, juggling two rock star careers and a toddler is tough. When Lights is on tour, daughter Rocket typically joins her.

And that goes for maintaining a longdistance marriage, too. Its hard when both she and Bokan are on separate tours, Lights, but to make it work, you travel and try to fit in special things.

It took hours a , and its s! You do the math! the star, , says of the passion project, which allowed for several hours of selfmeditation.

One of the ways that I discovered my confidence and my ability to overpower is becoming a mother, she says. Suddenly, my world wasnt about myself anymore. I had another purpose and another person to take care of. And then all of a sudden, you cant be a narcissist anymore. Sometimes you get so in your head, and most of the s that you concoct about the world hating you is you just your own projection of yourself. I was able to get a bigger perspective. That really helped.

The star hopes sharing her experiences helps others.

Case in point Were in the process of challenging each other to do nice things for each other, she explains. When I was in New York for a show, that night I got back to the hotel, and somebody was like, Uber Eats is here for you, and it was two pints of ice cream Beau had sent it over, from Europe!

You can get to know me a little bit by reading it, just to get to know my personality. Shes kind of a goof, this totally flawed person with issues, and shes biual  and it made me realize that about myself, too. If I met the right girl, I could easily ll in love. Love is so much more than gender You ll in love with a person, says Lights.

Because she reacts, ultimately, the way I would, says Lights, who in won the New Artist of the Year Juno Award Canadas equivalent of a Grammy.

Mental health is the main concept of the story; the whole story is a metaphor for that, she reveals. I had years of struggling with depression and inner demons, and this was my way of talking about it.

I think there was a time I would have been [afraid to talk about it], but now, the way things are today, people need to talk about mental health and need to be open about it and be able to have a conversation about it, says Lights. I know other people go through thisall the time most people do, and nobodys cool to admit it. So I think its time that people do.

Storytelling through song and visual art has become a cathartic experience for the singer, who shares yearold daughter Rocket with her husband of five years, Blessthell rocker Beau Bokan, .

It was a learning experience in a lot of deep ways, she says of creatingSkin Earth,which also serves as an allegory for her struggle with mental illness.

Its kind of a balancing act all the time, she says of parenting on the road. But Ive learned to be more spontaneous and just go with it.
