On His Style:
“I just try to keep it fresh. Even though I’m really into fashion, I’m into fashion as a means of creative expression. I dress myself according to my personal creative expression. … I try to keep it comfortable. I try to keep it simple.”
“Yeah, I tweet. There are parameters around that, but I do get personal as far as communicating with people here and there, retweeting comments and things like that. I answer people back through my @ mentions, but I don’t get too involved with it. I learned that back with MySpace. If you respond a certain way because you’re a celebrity, then they say, ‘Oh, he’s trippin’, so I don’t really get into it like that.”
On His Childhood:
“I was very ‘untypical.’ Very ‘untraditional.’ Very unconservative. Very ‘un’ everything. For instance, I thought everybody could sing. That’s just the way I viewed life and the world. If I could do it, everybody could do it. So, it created an expectation and whenever I would meet somebody I would say, ‘Sing me something,’ and they would look at me like, ‘You’re nuts.’ ”
“I felt that everyone had the same sentiments when it came to love that I did. I felt like if you really cared for somebody then that was it. It never occurred to me that people could lie about the way they felt about you. I had to learn that the hard way.”
On Negative Feedback:
“I don’t really take it in as far as the negative things. I’m the kinda person, if someone is saying something negative about me, I’m going to investigate it to see if there’s any truth to it because I can only see myself the way I see myself. Other people view you differently. So, if somebody says something that I don’t really like to hear, but it’s true, then it’s true. If I don’t like it, then I should change it. If it’s not true, then it don’t go nowhere, and I just leave it at that.”
