Life is pretty surreal and awesome.
I don't care what people think of me, unless they think I'm mean or something, but I don't care if they think I'm like someone else because I know I'm not - I'm a total weirdo. I'm not selling a dream; I'm not selling fame like it is some sort of fantastic thing. I'm just trying to sell music and get on with my real life.
The weirder the better for me.
'Chandelier' took, like, four minutes to write the chords, then, like, 12-15 minutes to write the lyrics. Probably 10 or 15 minutes to cut the vocals.
I was pretty much tap dancing for attention from a very early age.
I think it would be very difficult to maintain one kind of art or whatever for your whole life. I think it's unrealistic.
