How Robyn, Pop’s Glittery Rebel, Danced Her Way Back From Darkness - The New York Times
When we had spoken in 2010 for a magazine profile while the “Body Talk” albums were in full swing, Robyn had mused on what she called the three big pillars of pop songwriting: love, the club and feeling like an outsider.

Sipping a pilsner at the restaurant in Stockholm’s Moderna Museet on an August afternoon, she said she’d add a few others to the mix now: “Eternity and death. And losing control.”

“In a way, I still agree that those are the three pillars of pop music. Those are pillars of youth,” she went on. “Everyone deals with sadness and lack of love when they’re kids, and all this abandonment. Most people do. Hopefully you want to learn something new and you want to move on to this other place, and I think for me, it was like, I really didn’t know how to calm myself down.”
