Famous quotes

My songs are like children. I love them all. I encourage them to grow, reach their full potential and then send them out into the world.

We want to be in a situation with maximum pressure, maximum intensity and maximum danger. When shared with other people, a bond is created that is stronger than any connection.

There is nothing better than going out there and performing and making that connection with the audience. Even after all that time, I’m still excited about it.

The music industry is really fun. If you have a hit everyone knows who you are and everyone wants to make a duet with you. Then when you fail, people suffer from amnesia.

Success tips

There is nothing wrong with not being sure about your goals for a while. But if you know what you want to do, you shouldn’t let anything stop you. It is not only okay to make mistakes, they are necessary to really grow. Perfection in every respect is practically unattainable without making mistakes beforehand. If there were no mistakes, we humans would not be able to distinguish between good and evil. Ultimately, you learn to accept your mistakes and recognize good performance as success. You cannot create the path to success alone. It is important to make mentors out of people you can trust for whatever you need them for.
