There was this mountain village in Russia where my music was getting in on some German radio station. I remember this because music used to get up to Saskatchewan from Texas. Late at night after the local station closed down.
Choreography is mentally draining but there's a pleasure in getting into the studio with the dancers and the music.
Getting into music has changed my personality and way of doing things. I'm far more open now.
Country music is still your grandpa's music but it's also your daughter's music. It's getting bigger and better all the time and I'm glad to be a part of it.
I started getting these attacks in 2009 just as my music career was taking off. I'd be doing photo-shoots and started to feel like I was having heart attacks. Increasingly I found it difficult to step outside my flat. Things started to get better after I saw a therapist who told me I needed to make peace with my panic attacks.
It was all about music about getting your friends to come and see you play. I don't see that same intimacy happening very much today.
I don't care what people say about my relationship I don't care what they say about my boobs. People are buying my songs I have a sold-out tour. I'm getting incredible feedback from my music.
I like to comprehend more or less everything around me - apart from the creation of my music. It's an obsessive character trait that's getting worse. I don't switch the light on and off 15 times before I leave the room yet but something's going wrong.
Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it time runs out.
Getting over someone is a grieving process. You mourn the loss of the relationship and that's only expedited by 'Out of sight out of mind.' But when you walk outside and see them on a billboard or on TV or on the cover of a magazine it reopens the wound. It's a high-class problem but it's real.
By forgetting the past and by throwing myself into other interests I forget to worry.
I think movies are good for getting into dream states or exploring weird alternate states of thinking.
I had a couple of movies that I was passionately involved with that I could never get made. 'Richard Pryor ' I wrote for - gosh - over a year. That was close to getting made for two-and-a-half years after that. We're still pushing it you know. It is weird. Suddenly you wake up and it's like 'God five years have gone by.'
The reason I started writing movies was because I kept getting parts that I just kind of stepped into. I didn't have to do a lot of work and I ended up getting sort of bored.
I quit doing the movies because the wrestling was going so good and was so on fire during the '80s and '90s but I was getting all these movie scripts.
Well getting behind the camera is something I've always wanted to get involved with. Ever since I was doing movies like 'Zathura' I was very interested in all the different jobs on set and kind of soaking all the information up like a sponge.
We didn't care if we were well-liked as long as the movies were good. We served the movie - that was our master at Miramax. In our second incarnation the movie is still the master but we're getting the same results in more subtle ways.
Most of the time it's the role. Sometimes it's the story and sometimes it just the paycheck. It's the little movies that come out as stories or the fact that I have work to go out you know what I'm saying you can only be out so long without work you start getting antsy.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
I think public service is a calling and you do it as long as the things that brought you into the office can continue getting you up in the morning and as long as there's still work to get done.
I used to hear about guys who played saying how difficult it is getting up in the morning and now I'm experiencing it those same effects.
I was the first in my peer group to get pregnant. All I craved was reassurance. I needed someone to tell me that all the seemingly random symptoms I had - weird things such as excess saliva - were normal. And I was worried because I wasn't getting any morning sickness.
I'm sorry I didn't wear paint this morning. I tend not to wear it unless I'm getting highly paid.
I hated high school. Ugh. I couldn't wait until it was over so I could sleep in. In college I made sure all my classes were in the afternoon. I hated getting up in the morning.
