"We live in an age, in an era where there is so much negativity, there is so much violence in the world, there is so much unrest and people are at war, that I wanted to promote the word love and red signifies love."
"And I'm afraid, in this day and age, trust, which I count so, you know, I love loyalty. I love trust."
"When I say I don't have to write pop songs anymore, there's no way I'm going to get on the radio at 60 years of age unless I'm doing a duet with Gaga or I was on 'All of the Lights,' which was a Kanye West record that managed to get on the radio."
"I've had an amazing professional life, personal life, but at 64 to have a son who gives us that much love and enjoyment is, wow!"
