Real men stay faithful. They don’t have time to look for other women because they’re too busy looking for new ways to love their own.
Part of me is being in touch with emotion. That’s all I write about. If I didn’t write about my emotions, I don’t know what else I would write about. Let that be the worst thing in my life please, not something like drug charges and God knows what else. I don’t get myself into trouble, so if the negative feedback that I do get is the worst thing that’s going to happen to me, then so be it.
