I don't care for the music when they're talking bad about women because I think women are God's greatest gift to the planet - I just like music.
If there was no ladies, I wouldn't wanna be on the planet. Ladies, friends, and music - without those three, I wouldn't wanna be here.
I like jazz, rock n' roll, some hip hop - I can't think of any music I don't like.
I was a singing disc jockey who heard every type of music there was - and loved it all.
If I hear a record once, I usually never listen to it again. I rarely listen to music - unless it's Billie Holiday.
In the music business, we all do different things, but we sit there and admire other people who can write a song differently or sing differently. It's not so competitive.
Being a woman in music was fine, but when I wanted to direct, I was poking my head into a man's world.
We forget that this music, music made by my brothers and sisters, is still a baby. It's just beginning. When I think of the possibilities, it makes me smile.
I don't know if it's my music, my lyrics, my sound, and knowing the music business the way I do-all I can say is, my career has lasted way longer than I expected.
One and the same thing can at the same time be good, bad, and indifferent, e.g., music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good nor bad to the deaf.
I like to focus on making the music sound simple and true, and very lush and full. I think music should take you to somewhere else where you have the space to contemplate or exercise your imagination. All the while you should be feeling real good, like when you have a delicious and decadent meal, macaroni and cheese or foie gras.
