(on who he would play Russian Roulette with...)
Eminem for starters. Then Fred Durst, from Limp Bizkit. Let's throw Britney in there. Then Marilyn Manson - just because he's sick enough to enjoy it. And the last one? Tony Blair. He's such a great disappointment - and he plays roulette with other people's lives all the time. It'd be good to see him sweat for a change.
I feel very comfortable with the way I look and I feel very comfortable with the kind of confusion that it creates in people's minds.
I love being a freak. It's great! I guess the line between being paranoid and being a rock star is smaller than one would expect. I like the fact that people either think I'm incredibly gorgeous or flippin ugly. We live in a strange bubble. I was never grateful that's why I spend my days alone I'm forever black-eyed a product of a broken home.
(from Black Eyed)
We're definitely up for world domination.
I love collecting toys, the more absurd and silly the better...they're wasted on children I think.
I think what you have to realise is that our generation is the first generation since its sexual awakening has come into the world and realised that sex can mean, ultimately, death. That has had a very serious effect on social morals and on the way people deal with each other. As we approach the millennium, people are getting more and more confused and contact is getting more and more sanitised, so there's a lot more mental games being played.
I'm very lustful. I'm in this fortunate, or unfortunate, position being bisexual in that I have twice as many people to lust over. So it can get hard on tour. I don't think lust is a sin - people should have sex as much and in as many situations as possible. Then they'd be less uptight.
My mouth has a tendency to get me into trouble, but because I'm so small and I take on people who are lager than me. If someone punched me, I'd get my drummer beat them up.
- Brian Molko
There's a difference between 'glamour' and 'glam rock'. Glam rock, to me, is a bunch of straight, hairy, football-liking lager lads dressed up in mother's castoffs and glamour is a certain sophistication, a certain other-worldliness, a certain unattainableness, which I think we certainly calculate. We believe that a band should be slightly larger than life - you should be transported to an alternate reality. I'm giving you some really good answers here, I'm very proud of myself.
They're getting used to it. I think fear is slowly turning into pride, I think they were quite perturbed in the beginning, but they're coming round to it. I was always a bit of a loose cannon, then again I was always the artistic one, bit of a social misfit. I probably still am.
(on what his parents think of the band)
When every day became a hangover and when you look at yourself in the mirror and go 'I don't like how you're coming across to people.' and when every day just started to feel the same. After the 50th shag, it doesn't mean so much anymore.
You lose so many material possessions being on the road. You can't get too attached to stuff and you have to remember that people must never become possessions. People are spheres intersecting. You have to make sure that one sphere doesn't ever take over the other. Individuality is absolutely the most important thing
