We can understand your success in the west. What do you think about your success in more conservative countries? For example, in Turkey you have huge fans and they would like to see you there as well. Would you like to visit Turkey?
Of course I would like to visit Turkey. Sometimes conservative places can fool you. You might think it will be difficult for them to accept your music but it is vice versa. In such countries my audience is more excited. With my first concert they told me I can be very successful in big cities but what about the small ones? In reality most of my fans were from middle America, they know my song lyrics by heart. I have fans all around the world.
IN HIGH SCHOOL THEY ALWAYS HAD FUN WITH ME
Maybe at the moment with your lyrics you are talking to those people. All the things you couldn’t tell that time, you put them in your music.
In high school I was always the losing part.They always had fun with me.I guess everything I went through those times were my destiny. When I look at the crowds today, I see many teenagers like me. They look at me and learn a lot from me. I really adore my fans.
I WANT A RING, BRIDESMAIDS AND FLOWERS
What do you think about the gay marriages? How important is it for them to be accepted in the society?
It is very important for me. Everybody should be equal. Being equal is not only for one type of people. Why would anyone be less important than the other?
Do you believe in marriage?
Yes honey , of course. I am Italian. I want a ring, bridesmaids and flowers.I am very traditional. I would like to marry one day. I can talk about how holy marriages are. But I don’t agree if the government behaves different to people’s marriages.
WRITINGS SONGS IS A 15 MINUTE VOMITING
When is the best time for you to write songs? Morning or evening? Do you need any special conditions for it?
Writing lyrics is like a 15 minute vomiting to me. 15 min long you vomit everything you have in your mind.
I HATE PERFECTION
Can we call you perfectionist?
No, absolutely not. I actually hate perfection. Sometimes I like making mistakes.
