People don’t want to see seventeen pieces in neckties. They wanna see some jeans, some gettin’ down and some wigglin’.

I love poetry. I love rhyming. Do you know, there are poets who don’t rhyme? Shakespeare did not rhyme most of the time and that’s why I do not like him.

It amazes me when I hear people say “I want to go out and find out who I am.” I always knew who I was. I was going to be famous if it killed me.

I would sing the blues if I had the blues.
