"I've never, ever labeled myself."
"I love collaborating with strong women."
"I was brought up in many different cultures, moving around all the time, and I find my identity in my songs. I project the identity I want to have throughout the songs that I write."
"If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah. And it's only through my music that I've found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life."
"I've always said in the press, I can fall in love with a man. I can fall in love with a woman. And I've always said that I have no shame in that."
"I was always told that I was too strange or that I was too cheesy by different groups of people, like the record companies said I was way too weird and the indie people wouldn't even let me in their band."
"In the past, it weighed on me because nobody in my family is gay. I had no role models so I had to find my own way."
