"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."
"I just love being able to travel into a different space, a different realm. And theatricality is a device for doing that. Then you can deal with everyday issues but be transgressive—take it to a different place. And a theatrical device allows me to do that."
