MTV can't do less for me, let's put it that way. I'm fine without them.
A lot of what I've done as Nine Inch Nails has been governed by fear. I was trying to keep the songs in a framework that was tough, and I learnt a lot from Jesus and Mary Chain about how to bury nice pop songs in unlistenable noise - the idea being if you can get behind that wall, you find there's a pearl inside.
You know, if nobody knows who you are, nobody's going to buy your record.
I tend to not listen to my own music when I'm not working on it. No real reason other than it's nice to get away from it.
