- To assume that any couple goes without arguing is just nonsense.
- What I love most about fatherhood is the opportunity to be a part of the development process of a new life.
- The music industry is really funny, when you have a hit record, everyone knows who are you, everyone wants to do duets with you, then if you have a miss, people suffer from amnesia.
- I don't think we can sit on the fence anymore. We have to make up our minds. And if one wants to choose the path of darkness, then so be it, but be conscious of what it is you're doing.
- I love our industry. I love the song. I love the voice. I love it. Not necessarily my voice. But I care about the song and the voice.
