"The new music is still fun, but it’s a bit darker. It’s not as annoying. Sometimes I feel like a big strawberry with a face on it. If you do something over and over again it’s like Chinese water torture. If it hits your head enough times, you want to die. You have to just evolve."
"I think people appreciate a songwriter who shows different sides. The whole angst thing is cool, but if that’s all you’ve got, it’s just boring. Everything I write, whether it’s happy or sad, has a sense of humor to it."
"We all have friends or people that we’ve known that maybe they wanted to be a rock star, or be this or that, and no one ever told them that they can’t… Like, ‘It’s just like you weren’t born with pitch, so it’s not going to happen and someone needs to tell you that because 15 years later you’ve wasted all this time and when you could have been a doctor."
