It's going to be my first show that I will be playing while I am pregnant, that's going to have it's own female-centric vibe about it. There's going to be lots of strong messages and music through the show.

"In an event like this that's so big, there are so many different people of age-ranges that are watching and listening, from 8 to 80 maybe, and lots of international people. So I'm going to give them what they know. I am not going shoot myself in the foot. You came for Roar you came for Firework and that is what I am going to give you."
