I was apprehensive. I feared every time I talked about poetry it would be filtered through the lens of race sex and age.
I want to be age appropriate. I don’t want to be that girl you see walking away and she looks 25 and then she turns around and she looks 90.
I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
I think you have to be a little bit strict. You can’t be friend and their parent in a lot of situations especially in this day and age where it’s so dangerous for kids. So there’s a bit of sternness I guess in the way I raise my kids.
I think the most exciting thing is that you expect people our age to know the music but actually a lot of kids know the music and if anything is left we have left really good music and that’s the important part not the mop-tops or whatever.
I think love can happen at any age… it has no age.
I think it’s pretty crazy to say you’ve been typecast at the age of 20 before you’ve even really started getting going.
I have worked very hard on being aware of my childhood but moving forward and not letting it bring me down emotionally. That is a hard thing – especially when you have children of your own and you remember what happened to you at that age.
I envy the sensibility in Europe appreciating beauty in women as they age. I’m going to go that way. I might dye my gray hair for a bit but beyond that the buck stops. I’m not having any work done.
I don’t need you to remind me of my age. I have a bladder to do that for me.
