Where I live, nobody who's fourteen is having sex and doing major drugs. And I think if you see it in the movies, you may be influenced by it. I think it's so important to preserve your innocence.
The innocence that feels no risk and is taught no caution, is more vulnerable than guilt, and oftener assailed.

Power is something of which I am convinced there is no innocence this side of the womb.
The innocent seldom find an uncomfortable pillow.
I can sing 'Happy Birthday' to you in twelve different places, but one of them is going to make you feel a certain thing, maybe it's a vulnerability, maybe an innocence, maybe another way is sexy and soulful or bluesy whatever it is, but with singers, exploring keys, I think, is important.
