I am a musician. My passion for music has obliterated everything in its path for my entire life. Whenever there was a choice between music and anything else, music won hands down every time. No one person or material thing could ever come close to the feeling I get when the music is right.
We went to see Britney Spears and I fell in love. She was singing to me, I know it. I'm so in love with her. I love her music, I do.
I didn't want to be treated like a 'star.' I fought it constantly, and I think I was rude.
Everybody has to find out: who are you? What do you believe in?
Misfits aren't misfits among other misfits.
