Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1I'm really visually stimulated more than anything. I don't really listen to music. I'm more into watching telly or watching movies and visual art.
2I think it would be very difficult to maintain one kind of art or whatever for your whole life. I think it's unrealistic.
3I love watching reality TV, but being part of making it was just demoralising.
4I liked myself much more before I got famous. I was much friendlier and had more energy.
5When you're entertaining all day long and that's your work, you end up really very tired. You don't have a lot of energy left over for your loved ones.
6People call me for the ballads. Apparently that's where I've been pigeonholed. But it's really interesting and really fun. It's my favourite part of the job, writing.
7I have social anxiety. It's easier up on stage because there's security in being there. When I'm off stage I'm trying not to be a manic freak. I'm quite shy.
8I don't go to shows because I just want to listen to the music performed live. I want to get to know the person who's performing it. Or I want to, like, take away a sense that I had an experience that nobody else is going to have again, or a unique experience for that moment.
9A lot of people come up to me expecting to meet the person they have seen perform. It's not going to happen, unless my mania, my stage person, responds to them and not the real me.
10There are probably five songs in the world that I get excited about when I hear them on the radio.
11People aren't honest about the horrors of fame. The downsides are so overwhelming that, for me, there is no payoff.
12I'm a fan of the Strokes, so my big fantasy was that one day I would get to sing with them.
13I'll be the songwriter for pop stars and then they can be the front person and I don't have to be famous.
14I was weirdly obsessed with music until I was 11, and then I turned into a nerd.
15I don't read reviews or interviews or anything, just because I'm afraid; If I believed the good, then I'd believe the bad, and there will be bad.
16I don't need to be rich anymore; I don't need to be a millionaire.
17I don't know anything about the history of music.
18Fame made me develop a panic disorder.
19I'm sensitive and get easily upset and insulted.
20I don't really even go out that much now except to walk my dogs, because I don't want to be recognised.
21When I was 10, my parents really valued success in the arts, and I thought if I was a famous 'something artistic,' that they would love me more.
22I hope I am a psychotherapist's dream. I've spent enough hours in therapy.
23I'm sort of a gay man trapped in a woman's body when it comes to music sometimes - it's crowded in here!
24Like when I'm singing live I can't hear myself. I'm just listening to the rest of the band. To listen to my voice, it doesn't even feel like it's me.
25Knowing now what goes into making a successful artist, it's disheartening.
26I love visual gags and gimmicks; I love them.
27I'm just completely obsessed with Die Antwoord.
28I'm an advocate of 'it's not what you are, it's who you are.'
