Lights made a children's book for her niece who was born with rare Apert Syndrome. You can download it here.
Over the holidays I made my little toddler niece, Fern, who was born with rare Apert Syndrome, a book about a little girl with Apert. I wanted her to have some reading material that featured a person with four digit hands, surgery scars, a hearing aid and ortho boots (to name a few of things she will be raised dealing with) because there are pretty much no books that she can relate to on that level. If any little one you know of has Apert Syndrome, pass it on to their fam.

Lights sat down with Purevolume to do a Q&A.
I was in early labor while doing the vocals for a song called ďMuscle Memory.Ē I had her early the next morning. I was back in the studio a few days later. It was this weird thing, but it felt good to have something going through my head besides Iím not feeling great right now. I was able to sit down and work on stuff that I wanted to do. I guess that shows that you really like your job then.

Lights has dropped Jian Ghomeshi as manager.
I posted comments about Jian Ghomeshi the day after he was dismissed by the CBC where I rushed to defend my manager of 12 years. I am now aware that my comments appear insensitive to those impacted and for that I am deeply sorry. This is to confirm that as of now I will be parting ways with Jian Ghomeshi as my manager.

I hope everyone can heal from this.

Lights' manager Jian Ghomeshi has been accused by eight women "of violence, sexual abuse or harassment." Lights originally had posted an open letter of support on Facebook (link to cached version), but that has since been deleted.
Eight women from across Canada now accuse former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi of abusive behaviour ranging from allegations of beating and choking without consent, to workplace sexual harassment. [...] Ghomeshi, 47, was fired Sunday from his job as host of Q, a flagship radio show of the publicly funded broadcaster. Ghomeshi has alleged in a lawsuit filed the next day that CBC made a ďmoral judgmentĒ that his practice of a bondage-sadism sex life was wrong. He is...

You canít bend too far for the sake of making someone happy. Iíll be defending my artistic integrity till death. It got close last summer, but itís so important to me.
