 I just went with the ones who called me back. It’s nothing, it’s alright. You know, rejections are really popular in the world and the secret is you just go to the next door — you know, like those people who sell vacuums door-to-door. You’ve just got to keep going and eventually someone says ‘yes’. There’s this idea that only teenagers buy records and watch videos, so I think the industry is just becoming really accustomed to catering to a younger audience and therefore older artists have a really tough time. You get in this rut of trying to please your label which definitely affects your creative process and the honesty of it. People say stuff. But not that I can or would use. Nah.

 For a minute I had a problem with it but my mum told me you get to a certain age where all that small, petty stuff goes away. My 30s were awful. It’s like the in-between where you’re not 20-something any more, so you’re struggling. In your forties you just get more settled and you don’t trip on the stuff you used to trip on. It’s kind of like a ‘f*** you’ age – a take-me-or-leave-me age.
