I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.
I was sitting in a meeting the other day and they were telling me how to get a song on the radio. They were like, “You have to remind someone of something.” You can’t make something new. They were like, “How about you make, like, a Blondie song, but a new version?” You always have to be the new someone. I could be the new Lana Del Rey, and she came out like six months ago. [Laughs] They really don’t do that to guys at all. “He’s the new Justin Timberlake!” You never hear that.
