QuoteI'm very happy at home. I love to just hang out with my daughter, I love to work in my garden. I'm not a gaping hole of need.Quote

QuoteI've known some great rock chicks, and it seems to me they're allowed to have a lot more edge than movie people, where everybody's got the latest youth serums going, the newest exercise and, if that won't cover it, they'll do something else. There's this sort of improve-yourself aspect, whereas the music business seems to have this much more funky attitude, with, like, a slight respect for damage.Quote

You may spend three months in bed, but, eventually, you're going to have to get up.Quote

QuoteIt is better to have a relationship with someone who cheats on you than with someone who does not flush the toilet.Quote
