"When I first heard that song, I was like, ‘Wow, I have never heard someone say exactly that in that way in a song before.’ I’d never heard somebody say, ‘Look, call your girlfriend. Tell her we’re going to be together now and tell her it’s fine.’ I thought it was a quite direct and interesting approach, although I’m not sure how well it would work in real life. But I was smitten with the idea of the song."

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where you live or how rich you are, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and be sweet to the ones you love. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life."

"I am generalizing, of course, but in hip-hop, it’s like you get this shine for using the word ‘pussy’ a billion times, and I think that that’s weirdly healthier than not doing it at all— even though I really hope it ends soon because, you know, how many decades can we do that? And with white dudes in indie rock— generally speaking, once again— there’s this guilt: ‘Oh, we’re not going to talk about that.’ And there are plenty of people who don’t talk about those things who end up having really unhealthy relationships with sex."

My favorite is definitely the last. We all try. But we’re also human. Emotions are part of us. It’s impossible to let go of them.
