"My main love for what I do is the admirers. I love the fans. Like when I´m doing a show and see the fans out there dancing and screaming, excited, and we´re bringing joy to them, that´s what I love most. And it´s just the greatest feeling in the world.

"I never liked the glove, although when I saw his monstrous hand, I got it. And I admired what he’d done to cover it up. It was never clear to me if that hurt or not, but I imagine it did. Think about the beauty of that. Putting sequins on your open wounds. Think about the entire world staring at the one thing that makes you feel most ugly."
