Don't ever ask for permission to follow your dreams.
Some people come into our lives, leave footprints in our hearts and minds and we are never the same again.
I learned early on how to treat women by the examples that were set around me.
The truth is, that I feel alone most of the time. I stopped believing in happiness, but I know that music makes me feel good.
I understand a lot of the female needs. I'm not saying I know all of them all the time though.
I was never interested in 'Teen Beat' like roles. I just wanted to work.
Teens are always shown as one dimensional. They're stereotyped. When I was in high school, I cared about more than getting a date or making the team.
I never look at myself as a closet actor wanting to make music or a closet musician wanting to act - I'm very proud to do both and I don't put one above the other, I'm very grateful and excited by both opportunities - it's really a unique opportunity to do both.
