I don’t like Los Angeles. The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I’m from New York. I will kill to get what I need.
—  Lady Gaga, New York magazine
New York is all about distraction and what’s next. The city has seasons, but they’re muted, and the transition of summer to fall to winter has more to do with changing temperatures than it does with the leaves turning, or the trees going bare, or the grass going from brown to green, or getting older.
