1Outlandish style of dress
1I really don't think I'm funny, but if other people think I'm funny, but if other people think I'm funny, I guess it works. I don't know anything about comedic timing, but I've heard it [mentioned] in a lot of interviews, so I guess it's working.
2Andre 3000? He's a character I play. He's wild, whatever. But me? I am the most nervous man in the world.
3I'll wear costume jewelery on stage, but I only actually own one piece of jewelery, and that's a Native American beaded necklace that I wear all the time. I bought it years ago because my family has Native American roots - I'm part African, part Native American.
4I had six silly tattoos done when I was young and I bitterly regret them. I've thought about laser surgery, but that leaves a scar, so I'm just leaving them.
5Look at Scottish guys wearing kilts - you could look at them and laugh, but the way they carry themselves, how can you? You can wear some of the weirdest things and be cool. If you believe in it, that's what makes it cool.
6The world doesn't need another clothing company. But it does need a certain funk.
7To me, that's part of the creative process. I hate it when bands fall back and say, "We're underground; we don't want to make money." Because it's not really about making money; it's about exposing everybody to what you're doing. And I want to do that. It's harder to be a success, globally, and be artistic. Harder to have that balance than just to be artistic when nobody understands you. You can just sit at home and do it yourself and have nobody listen to you.
8Looking in the mirror. They say, when you're high, you shouldn't look in the mirror. And I did. And I saw myself deteriorating and I was like; "You look terrible. You got to cut this shit out or you won't make it." And I stopped. I rarely drink, I don't smoke, so my vice is probably creating. I'm addicted to creating. And women. Oh, women.
9Although I hate auditioning. An audition, it's in a room smaller than this and there's producers and directors and they've seen 100 people, and they're, "OK. Go." And it feels strange. It's almost like you meet a girl and someone says, "OK, have sex right now." You don't have time to get it up.
10But I am a lover of all kinds of art. And I just can't stick to one thing. I guess I could if I made myself, but I'd always be looking the other way, for other things.
