Frankly, I have always dreaded writing - there always seemed to be pain involved, unpleasant self-examination and a lot of fear.
My life has been many examples of shortsighted goals that I thought would fix things. You know, if there's something broken inside me, if there's a hole in there, I thought: If I could just write a good song someday, then I'd be OK. You know, if I could just be on stage in front of people I'd never seen before and be validated by them.
'Yeezus,' I really love it. I think the sound of it is cool.
It probably wasn't until Nine Inch Nails played the first Lollapalooza that I actually went to a festival.
