Q: One of the things we love about you is that you're really true to who you are. Is that hard in this industry?
A: Unbelievably. It's unbelievably hard. And not even in a sense of being negative on anyone, just in a sense of I think people get nervous about things I don't get nervous about. I'm not nervous when I come out with a record thinking, "Oh, how is it going to amount up to others?" I never get nervous like that. I'm not nervous when I go into the studio, thinking: "Oh, well is this potentially radio-friendly? Is it not mainstream enough?" I don't really do that. I just have a good time.
