#Quote
1[observation, 2014] I can see pop music changing into something I can really run. There's only a few more years left of the whole plastic, overproduced bad lyric, throwaway pop. It's dying out because audiences are clever. Artists are running their own careers now, and that means it has to come from them. It has to come from their brain.
