Music can change the world because it can change people.
I used to love Kurt Cobain, when he was telling people we're a pop band. People would laugh, they thought of it as good old ironic Kurt. But he wasn't being ironic.
What I like about pop music, and why I'm still attracted to it, is that in the end it becomes our folk music.
As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.
Overcoming my dad telling me that I could never amount to anything is what has made me the megalomaniac that you see today.
