When I was in prison, I was wrapped up in all those deep books - that [Leo Tolstoy] crap. People shouldn't read that stuff. When we read those books, what purpose does it serve in this day and time?
My career has been over since 1990 . . . When I look at my fans, they don't love me. They love what I do. I'm an entertainer. I'm a performer. I entertain them. That's what I do.
As a young kid, I used to watch boxing films and I would stop the film when I'd see something I liked - the way he bowed, the way he'd hit somebody, or the way he stood with his belt - and I would rewind it and emulate it. Over and over again. I liked the villains best because you never forgot them.
