Culturally it’s really funny to me that people respect the weird guy as an artist. There can be a curmudgeon in the corner with spiders building nests in his hair and he hasn’t bathed for three weeks but for whatever reason, he’s more creative than the guy sitting next to him that’s showered and is talking to everybody. I think it’s bullshit… I’m not going to try to be someone I’m not in order to try to be taken more seriously. I’m beginning to think that there’s nothing more courageous, and nothing harder, than actually just being yourself: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
