In fact, she writes what she knows. She is part android:

Yes I am African-American, yes I am part android and all these different things, but at the end of the day love is universal and music is universal.

She's stated, "I don't believe in categories. I respect people for who they are, and I'm attracted to that more than anything." She also wonders how we will treat androids in the future, whether we will shun them or use them, and that is what her albums have been written about.
