There’s nothing more fun than to play music to an audience. You can improvise at rehearsals, but it’s kind of a dead atmosphere. There’s no audience feedback.
Thank you for your support, the fans around the world. I love you with all my heart. I don’t take any of it for granted. Any of it.
Every time you release a new record, if it’s successful, you attract a new audience. Then the old catalog gets revived and people get reminded of what we’ve done before.
I like making new songs and I like playing them live — not tons of them, because you have to slowly incorporate new material since you have an obligation to play the songs that people love, because that’s what they come for.
There’s a lot of potential there at NXT. It’s a situation where they have made this thing so real for the people that get involved. You go to some of these WWE shows and people are chanting ‘NXT!’ It’s really taken off.
To the City of St. Louis, its fan base … I love you. Thanks for all the love. Thanks for embracing me and my team for 21 great years. We grew up there. I love you and I thank you.

I want to have a cultural impact. I want to be an inspiration, to show people what can be done. I’ve always been a daydreamer. When the other kids were playing, I was listening to the roar at Yankee Stadium—I was always attracted to the roar of the crowd.
There are those people who are in your corner no matter what, you can’t do any wrong, even when you do wrong. And then there are those people that no matter what you do they are going to dislike you and that’s not going to change.
The majority of great actresses met tragic ends. When I said goodbye to this job, to this life of opulence and glitter, images and adoration, the quest to be desired, I was saving my life.
