Some suggestions for you :

I find Lady Gaga hilarious. And I kind of like her. My heart's warmed to her.

I love a bit of flag-waving.

I love pop music. It's not easy to write a good pop song.

Love is 2 minutes and 52 seconds of squelching noises.

Obama's dense as a doorbell; not much going on up there - it's a wooden top.

One of the most beautiful things about Britain, apart from the NHS and the free education, is the British Army.

As a human being, I'm work in process.

If you can sort out why you feel the way you do then you might be in better shape to meet your maker.

Periods of inactivity, I don't know such things. I'm consistently writing. My life is busy. It always is. There are hardly any moments for self-indulgent laziness.

I think national pride leads to nothing but wars and hate.

When you grew up like me and my four brothers, you end up feeling somewhat inadequate, like somehow you don't count. I was very ill as a child and in and out of hospital. That sort of alienates you, and in my songs I put that to good use.

Americans being upright and forthright and honest and true to themselves is a very hard concept.

I love Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart because they're bringing irony back into American humor, which is a delicious treat. The entire Colbert persona of being extreme right-wing when he's not at all is highly amusing. He does it so well, but sometimes a little too well. My wife is convinced he's completely that way.

I wanted to wear the most impenetrable suit of armour ever known to mankind. 'Hello, Mr. Rotten...' You can't say anything about me. You can't put me down in any way shape or form - I'm rotten to the core... you know, what's left for you? Pleasantries? I suppose the worst insult you could sling my way is 'Oh, he's really nice, him.'
