Carol Ann Duffy
We know that creative people have all sorts of demons.
The Chinese art world does not exist. In a society that restricts individual freedoms and violates human rights, anything that calls itself creative or independent is a pretence. It is impossible for a totalitarian society to create anything with passion and imagination.
I like to work; I like to be creative. I work in the entertainment industry where work may come up, and it may not, so I wanted to do something proactive. I've got a brain; I don't want to just sit at home - I want to do as much as I can.
I don't know what drives me, but I wake up in the morning, and I want to participate in the creative cultural conversation.

I do love being solo because I can have more of my own creative input to every aspect of my career.

I'm generally quite an angry person, and I like to channel my anger toward something creative.
I get to work with great photographers, wear lovely clothes, be part of the creative process.
I do like to be creative and I'm very lucky that I've been given different areas in which I'm able to do that - whether it be film or television or theatre or whatever. I'm also still into music and recording.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
