But beyond that, she’s proud that a group of women can be friends free of gossip and back-stabbing. "I think the world is changing in a big way, especially in the music industry,” she tells lifestyle website Refinery29. “It's way more about looking up to each other than being a rival with each other.” She says she makes it a point to surround herself…

Jack has also collaborated with Taylor Swift, co-writing three songs on latest album, 1989. This summer, Bleachers…
