When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order then come back and make beautiful music. We think beautiful music."

I've just been touring since 2003 and like anything things get monotonous and you're doing the same thing every night. I'd like to go days without wearing make-up and watching my football games. Doing my footwear collection and my fragrancesâ€¦Just going where the day takes me."
