I was expecting it to be cynical because I’m like that myself. I wouldn’t want it to be all roses because life isn’t like that.
I’m romantic. I fall in love every day. Not with people but with situations. The other day, I saw a tramp polishing his shoes. That just gripped my heart.
Some people reckoned that I looked healthier when I was bigger but I had terrible skin and no energy.
I can’t help you if you won’t help yourself.
I know definitive points in my life and in relationships because of my songs. I write my music so that I’ll never be bored of it.
I’m lucky because I do get to fly first-class now.
The dark covers me and I cannot run now.
A little bit of anorexia, a little bit of bulimia. I’m not totally OK now but I don’t think any woman is.
A song marks an occasion in my life and that’s how I live my life, by songs.
To be honest, I think kids have got a lot more going on than adults. They’ve got their heads screwed on a lot better.
I just dress like… I’m an old black man. Sorry! Like I’m an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it’s still the ’50s.
I was hit by a car once on my bike, but I still rode home.
