I normally live in Los Angeles, if you can call it normal living.
Artists aren't really people. And I'm actually 40 per cent papier mache.
Long hair is an unpardonable offense which should be punishable by death.
The Smiths was an incredibly personal thing to me. It was like launching your own diary to music.
I do think it's possible to go through life and never fall in love, or find someone who loves you.
You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.
Not everybody is absolutely stupid. Why on earth would I be racist, what would I be trying to achieve?
When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.
I've never intended to be controversial but it's very easy to be controversial in pop music because nobody ever is.
That's why I do this music business thing, it's communication with people without having the extreme inconvenience of actually phoning anybody up.
