I’m a very free woman, and maybe freedom is erotic in that way. Maybe it’s conceived of as something dangerous, and dangerous – in that creative and wild way – is sensuous and erotic. For me it’s more about making what I feel, but there’s always a reason, a level of integrity and classical expression in what I do.
The idea’s the idea: It’s about what you do, and not who you are.
I don’t want to be in front of the camera forever. I’m not thirsty. I’m not a pop star. I don’t want to reign over all forever. I don’t want to be famous! It makes me feel sick, the thought of being a famous person. It’s just not me. I’m the happiest when I’m in the studio, not on a beauty parade.
Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating. Everything neutralises
I once said to a boy, ‘You’re a really good kisser,’ and he said, ‘You’re only as good as the person you’re kissing.’ I think it’s the same with the music. If someone [says], ‘Your music is really provocative,’ I’m only as provocative as the person that’s listening to it.
