I suspect she has more (female) followers than male followers. A lot of young women can relate to her as she is attractive but not exactly "drop dead gorgeous" which makes her more (relatable). She sings songs with an element of "self-empowerment" and being a "free spirit". There is a certain honesty and vulnerability conveyed during her interviews. She doesn't seem pretentious.

She may not do anything new or revolutionary with music, but she struck gold at the right time.
