Quotes

#Quote
1I was always really determined to look the way I wanted to look, and I wanted to cut my hair. I wanted to look different because I was used to looking different. Because of my religious background, I'd always been encouraged to look different.
2[on the misconception of her characters in Conan the Destroyer (1984), and Vamp (1986)] I do get hurt, I do cry, I do have feelings. I think it is a nice surprise to see a vulnerable side to me in my music, I'm multifaceted, I think everybody is, I am developing my vulnerable side, and one day it will come out in film.
3[on preparing for the role of Katrina in Vamp (1986)] I read "Interview With a Vampire", my character was based on that character in a sense, it wasn't taken from the book, but I did read that book in order to get the feeling of putting human feelings into it, and I guess I started smoking cigarettes as a habit, just to see what a habit feels like, because I haven't got any.
4[on her mothering] I have one formula that really works, and that is never use a negative word to him (her son), ever. I never said, "no", "don't", "never" - I said, "If you have any more sweeties, all your teeth either are not going to grow, or fall out" or, "if you want to go in the swimming pool - you'll drown".
5[on sexuality, and categorizing one's sexual preferences] Of course I find women attractive, I think that if I didn't - I wouldn't find myself attractive. I think one has to begin first within themselves - then go from there, and for me to say that I don't find women attract would be saying that I don't find myself attractive. It doesn't make me anything, I think it is ridiculous trying to categorize people's feelings or to say what one person prefers, there's no comparison. You can't just say one is better than the other, or one is worse than the other - do what you feel, when you feel like it, if you feel like it.
6[on her aggressive behavior] I think I am aggressive in a positive way, it protects me- it puts everyone on their guard-to be nice to me.
7[on her stage persona] When I perform on stage I become those male bullies, those dominators from my childhood. That's probably why it's so scary, because they scared me.
8[on how she became to be a singer] I never thought I was going to be a singer. That was an accident.
9[on her film career, or lack thereof] After the doing the first big film (Conan the Destroyer (1984)), I realized there was so much time, so much empty space -- always, you know... waiting to be called. Thank God, I've got the music because in all that space, I was writing music.
10[on her gay following] The fact that I get in there and perform during this political time, and have a great time doing it helps. Gays are my best audience.
11[on drug use] Use, don't abuse.
