It's so different now coming out as a new artist today than it was when I came out almost ten years ago. Now, it's all about singles, it's really quick, it's online. I came out when people sold records and they still do today but - I don't know what the key is.
I was a bouncer for ten years in New York City.
It's not a failure if a marriage or partnership ends after a certain number of years. I think, in general, we expect too much of partners.

My approach to cutting spending as president, is to do a ten percent across the board cut of all federal agencies, and then ask each of my new agency heads to find another ten percent by drilling down.
