Check out this amazing snap that gives you an idea of what the singer sees from the stage. Look at all those lights for Lights!

But being a singer is not always a glamorous occupation, and it still takes a lot of hard work. Lights isn’t shy about showing the not-so-glamorous side of her gig.

She shared a photo of herself signing her second record deal recently, giving a peek into her real daily life. Despite the seemingly fancy task, things are certainly very casual.

And sometimes, your bus breaks down! She shared this snap en route to Minneapolis when that very thing happened on tour.

As a working mom, it’s all about balance! Lights has to figure out a happy medium between being a mom and being a famous singer, which means sometimes little Rocket tags along to the studio.

She shared this picture of that exact situation, where you can see her daughter playing on the floor.
