“Because I’m shy and a bit quiet, I think people assume I’m an elegant person.”
“When people say to me, ‘What do you think of rap music?’, my answer is, ‘There’s no such thing. There’s rap, and there’s music.’”
“I find great beauty in songs with a creative interpretation, but most people generally don’t get that, and go for the simple songs, but I prefer something a bit more complicated, which is more meaningful to the creator.”
“I was always one of those fortunate people who never wanted to be anything other than a singer and an actor. Most people know me as a singer, but I am also an actor.”
“I particularly like Hershey’s chocolate, the kind which has almonds in it.”
