On what fans can expect from Bring Me Home–Live 2011

We wanted people to walk away from the show having had an amazing memorable experience even if they weren’t a particular fan. Like a great movie that you might see that effects you and leaves a lasting impression.

On her timeless beauty…

I’ve tried a few times to get fit but I don’t like inflicting pain upon myself and I don’t have the will. But I am active, I’m a physical person. I’d rather push a barrow than weights, and then somehow I don’t feel the pain.

On The Robert Glasper Experiment’s cover of Cherish the Day featuring Lalah Hathaway…

I’ve not yet heard this cover, but I love to hear interpretations of our songs. Anyway, I have a feeling that once a song is out there it belongs to the world. I like The Civil Wars version of “No Ordinary Love.” I love when our songs are sampled because someone is reforming your work and giving it a new feeling.

On Beyoncé’s open letter to her…

The music business usually tries to set all the girls against each other; it’s so lovely when one woman openly appreciates another, but then Beyoncé is a Solider Girl. She’s special.
