George Jones was my all-time favorite singer and one of my favorite people in the world.
At the Sahara, the seats are banked and most of the audience is looking down at the stage. Everybody in the business knows: Up for singers, down for comics. The people want to idealize a singer. They want to feel superior to a comic. You're trying to make them laugh. They can't laugh at someone they're looking up to.
I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance. If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing.
You look up at drama, down at comedy. A singer, looking up is okay. A comic, it's death.
I'm no hillbilly singer.
I had the title poet, and maybe I was one for a while. Also, the title singer was kindly accorded me, even though I could barely carry a tune.
What I do is I write mainly about very personal and rather lonely feelings, and I explore them in a different way each time. You know, what I do is not terribly intellectual. I'm a pop singer for Christ's sake. As a person, I'm fairly uncomplicated.
To this day, some of my closest friends say, 'Gaga, you know, everything's great. You're a singer; your dreams have come true.' But, still, when certain things are said to you over and over again as you're growing up, it stays with you and you wonder if they're true.
Even though I'm a pop singer, I really have more the life of a country singer.

Because I came out as a singer, I took the time to get an acting coach.
I would have wanted to be a rock star, a lead singer, if I wasn't a model. I'd go touring in a bus with my band. In my next life, that's the plan.
I'm a terrible singer. I feel lucky to play baseball. You can't be gifted in everything.
If there is a better singer in England than Craig David, then I am Margaret Thatcher.
Probably to me the greatest singer, female voice, is Billie Holiday. And one of the most moving for me, I don't know why - maybe it's nostalgia, maybe because my life is one of constant partying, whatever.
If you want to be a good blues singer, people are going to be down on you, so dress like you're going to the bank to borrow money.
B. B. King
There is delight in singing, though none hear beside the singer.
Walter Savage Landor

It's a two-dimensional gig being a singer, and you can get lost in your own tedium and repetition.
I have come to the conclusion - and I don't know why it took me so long, but nevertheless, I'm here now - that a lot of people tell me they don't get enough guitar on my albums. So I decided to do an album where the guitar would be the singer, playing the melody.
If I have any regrets, I could say that I'm sorry I wasn't a better writer or a better singer.
I see myself as like the lead singer of a band or something.
I respect country music because I feel like it's more about the talent and the songwriting and I put on a big show and we have a lot of stuff, but I feel confident in myself enough as an artist and a singer that I can have all of those fun toys and know that we don't need all the bells and whistles either.
You can't be perfect. You can't be the perfect father. You can't be the perfect singer.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
