Quote of the Day
There's definitely a thin line between being tasteful and tacky.
When I got married in 1991, I had never been to a wedding, so I didn't know that my wedding was tacky. I didn't know that I was getting married in a quinceanera dress, because there was nobody there to cry over me and tell me I look like a fool.
Call me tacky, but I love the union of sweet and sour, even in some now-unloved Oriental dishes incorporating pineapple and ketchup.
I wouldn't say I invented tacky, but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity.

Van Morrison is probably, at this point in time, my biggest influence as a vocalist. When we were making our last album I had a vinyl copy of 'Veedon Fleece' in the vocal booth in front of me, in the dorky sense. I think there were candles around, which is really tacky, but hey, I needed to channel Van the Man!
Being dull and boring is far more tragic than being tacky.

Georgia May Jagger

Talking about money is garish. It's tacky.

Sexual underwear is tacky.
It wasn't until I was working on 'Tacky' that I admitted to myself that I was writing a series.
Adult fantasy gets a bad name. You think of Xena - Warrior Princess. If you don't do it expensively, it becomes tacky and you end up just appealing to 45-year-old single men.
I think there is sexy. And then there's tacky sexy. When you're young, you can get away with tacky sexy. I mean, it's not even tacky when you're young. But when you get older, it's just tacky.
I have done some tacky films, but then they were all my decisions, and I'm happy to have made those because they have made me who I am.
I'm not a tacky person, I think.
I once owned a really, really ugly pair of white leather boots. They were so bad. It was back in the '80s! It was just a really tacky fashion choice when I was in middle school, and I thought it was cool. I'm really embarrassed.
