The outlet for my work is not just the music and the videos, it’s every breathing moment of my life. I’m always saying something about art and music and fame.
With fame, you know, you can read about yourself, somebody else’s ideas about you, but what’s important is how you feel about yourself — for survival and living day to day with what comes up.
There’s this sense that of course you want to be famous. When you’re a performer, of course you want an audience, but it’s very, very different from courting fame.
If fame belonged to me, I could not escape her; if she did not, the longest day would pass me on the chase, and the approbation of my dog would forsake me then. My barefoot rank is better.
Fame will go by and, so long, I’ve had you, fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle. So at least it’s something I experienced, but that’s not where I live.
Fame is not really for a daily diet, that’s not what fulfills you. It warms you a bit but the warming is temporary. It’s like caviar, you know — it’s good to have caviar but not when you have to have it every meal and every day.
