We just do what we do, love who we love, and can't help who we are. We should be that -- proudly."

"But I'm sorry, Mama, for "Cleaning Out My Closet". At the time I was angry. Rightfully, maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, 'cause now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not making jokes. That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it's on the radio."
