My favorite moments in the show are when I stand by myself and sing.
What makes most people comfortable is some sort of sense of nostalgia. I grew up in a small town, and I could count my friends on one hand, and I still live that way. I think I'll die in a small town. When I can't move my bones around a stage any more, you'll find me living in a place that's spread out and rural and spacious.
I pick my nose and I'm not ashamed to admit it. If there's a bogey then just pick it, man.
I was raised in a very humble environment, and I was always taught to be humble to the things that are happening in my life because they're blessings. They're blessings in every way. Whether you're able to help someone get through a tough time in their life through your music or through comedy, or whatever it is, you're just a channel.
True love, to me, is when she's the first thought that goes through your head when you wake up and the last thought that goes through your head before you go to sleep.
I think when I was about 12 or 13, my dad started taking me out to the local golf course, and that's the first time I ever hit a golf ball. I picked it up pretty quickly, just kind of monkey-see, monkey-do. But when I was 12, golf was so slow to me. For me, it was basketball, girls and music.
I'm a mutt as far as music is concerned because I listen to everything.
I train in the mornings, and I'll eat two breakfasts. I'll have waffles with flax seed and almond butter and one egg scrambled. Then I'll work out and have a second breakfast - another egg or a protein shake. Within a half-hour to 40 minutes after a workout, that's when you want to load up on protein.
My biggest challenge was to make sure that the songs I did were who I am.
I needed freedom to really express myself. That's really what Justified is about.
I guess, for me, I've always thought that there was humor everywhere. And as a kid, I just, you know, I grew up an only child, and I - sort of nothing made me happier than to make my parents laugh. I remember I had costumes and things laying around the house that I was, you know, anything that I could do to make my parents laugh.
If you put out 150 percent, then you can always expect 100 percent back. That's what I was always told as a kid, and It's worked for me so far!
With the exception of octopus, I don't think I've met any food that I didn't like. And by the way, sometimes I do like octopus. I'm just not crazy about it by itself. I love sea urchin. I love uni. If I'm going to die of anything, it's going to be gluttony.
I sang in church growing up. Memphis is the blues capital of the world, we like to say.
Hosting 'SNL' was something I'd always wanted to do. The show allowed me to play to my strengths - mixing music with comedy seemed like a way into that world.
This isn't about the money. This is just for me. I love music.
Every relationship I've been in, I've overwhelmed the girl. They just can't handle all the love.
The right scent can make you feel a little more stylish, but it should never eclipse who you are. It should complement who you are.
I didn't put out this album because I wanted everybody to know I was grown up. I'm 21 and that's not grown up.
Sometimes a producer and an artist get together and they make magic like Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson. As far as my own music career - you could liken my chemistry with Timbaland to Marty Scorsese and Robert De Niro.
The best part about being with a group is that you don't have to do everything alone. You're with your friends.
The hardest part about making movies is staying the exact same weight every day and looking the same.
I really didn't try to make an effort to make urban music, but I am a product of my inspirations.
The thing is that my idols have always been the types of guys who could do anything: Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Sinatra, Dean Martin; and when you look up to people like that, you don't accept that you need to be compartmentalised.
Most guys in high school wore clothes seen only by their classmates. I wore clothes seen by the world.
I'm such a Type A personality - when it comes to a road trip, I plan my food so far in advance. I roll hard with a cooler. I don't mess around. I want to avoid ending up eating fast food. I try to stay away from that.
My career decisions have nothing to do with my personal life.
Teen pop will never die as long as there are teens and popular music. It just takes a different head.
I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment. It's on to the next.
I think the only way to achieve something that's classic is to be in the moment. You don't sit around and think, 'Oh, I hope this is remembered forever!' You just have to be honest, and I think that requires being in the moment.
If there were something that I was going to endorse, it would probably be something like sneakers.
That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather - that there is a thing called chivalry, and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the Internet. The way I see it, if you're asking a girl out on a date, it's only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice.
Sometimes I wake up and stretch and do 20 minutes on the treadmill, or anything to just break a sweat. And then I have the weekends where I can get out and play nine holes and maybe go to the gym.
'Celebrity' is sort of an idea. I mean, I get to do something extraordinary, but I don't think it makes me extraordinary. That's my opinion. I like to be an artist; I like to do things that are involved in the arts, but I don't think it makes me more special than a doctor, for example. A doctor is an extraordinary person.
The many sounds of Memphis shaped my early musical career and continue to be an inspiration to this day.
I'm not trying to sound pretentious, but we did sell 12 million records on the first album, so we did get paid a little bit.
I get way more nervous playing golf in front of 500 people than being on stage in front of 20,000 people.
If I did any movies I'd have to take a break from singing, because I'd want it to be really good.
I feel very fortunate to be compared to somebody so incredible. Michael Jackson's an icon.
