And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.

I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.

Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
