If you only believe that you're an artist when you have a big advance in your pocket and a single coming out, I would say that's quite soulless. You have to have a sense of your own greatness and your own ability from a very deep place inside you. I am the one with the litmus test in my hands of what people need to hear next.
I have never smuggled anything in my life. Why, then, do I feel an uneasy sense of guilt on approaching a customs barrier?

And I loved Fats Waller. I love his instrumental abilities, his vocal abilities and his sense of humor.
When you're young, you're always wondering when you're actually going to feel like a grownup. And I think you probably fear it, in a sense, too.
