The singer, who has been promoting her band's debut album Light Me Up across Europe, said that she felt guilty after she appeared to criticise her mum and dad for forcing her into the limelight from the age of two, adding: "I was working constantly and I didn't have a real life."
The 'Make Me Wanna Die' star has since told Kerrang!: "[After reading the article, they felt] horrible! I love my mum and dad. Maybe I didn't have the childhood people think you should have, but I still went through the ages, I was still a child.
"Maybe it wasn't a conventional one, but you know... I like where I am now so it's okay."
She added: "I think my parents have learned by this point that none of [what they read] is probably true, and words can be put in your mouth."
The star recently described herself as a product of the entertainment industry.
