(on being private about her life) What did you expect? I`m human; I feel what anybody else feels. There is a big difference between what I do onstage and what I do in my private life. I don`t put my living room on magazine pages. I`m not intensely private - I talk a great deal about my life and my work - I just don`t play the game to excess.
Historically, the image of women in pop music has been so totally ornamental - sexual, but predictably so. It`s hard to tell how far women`s individuality has come in the past twenty years. Certainly, if you look at the pop charts as a measuring stick, you`d think it hasn`t come far at all. But women do feel less like victims now than they did twenty years ago. At heart I`m a feminist, but I`m also a feminist for men. Men should be liberated from the roles that are foisted on them also.
I love to be individual, to step beyond gender.
Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.
The future hasn`t happened yet and the past is gone. So I think the only moment we have is right here and now, and I try to make the best of those moments, the moments that I`m in.

“I would say that although my music may be or may have been part of the cultural background fabric of the gay community, I consider myself an outsider who belongs everywhere and nowhere... Being a human being is what truly counts. That's where you'll find me.” (en.thinkexist.com)
