"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"If you don’t accept yourself you can’t empower yourself. And what areas are there to deal with acceptance? The first is biological. Some people just don’t accept their bodies. They don’t accept who they are; they don’t accept nature, what it means to be a human being, how a human being functions, and what is important to sustain the species. So if I have a dialogue with sexuality, it’s about empowerment. It’s the embracing of what it means to be human and our understanding of life and how it wants to flourish and procreate."
