I never thought I would be singing for the world.
I wept not, so to stone within I grew.
I am a romantic fool, no doubt about that.
I have been recording for five decades now.
I was the overweight kid who didn't have a boyfriend. I listened to other people say, 'You're ugly, you're fat, you're stupid,' and I believed it.
I want to take some jams and really concentrate on hooking up with Page because, since he's the only one not next to me, and his sound is mainly coming from my monitor rather than through the air, it's a little harder for me to hook up with him.
Every day, I love what I do and I think it's a gift and privilege to love your job.
Other writers tell me about these bushel baskets delivered at the front door. If I've gotten 50 letters over the last 18 years, I'd be surprised.
Classical music in Venezuela is now something like a pop concert. You can see people screaming or crying because they don't have a ticket.

That we have altered the dog genetically is well understood; it is hardly known how they changed us.

I don't think anyone wakes up and says, 'I want my life to suck today.'
Some people say I sound Australian. I guess it's all down to Miss Matthews, who taught me English when I was growing up in Dar es Salaam. Nearly everyone in Denmark speaks English, and TV shows are only ever subtitled, not dubbed.
