I don’t think you ever know in yourself whether you have gone mad.
I always have a very strong sense of shaming oneself, and you can do that a lot in the public eye, so it’s best avoided at all costs I think.
Chart positions aren’t the be all and end all.
Love Comes Quickly is our favourite record ever, and it did really badly.
I think sometimes an artist can really lose sight of what made them popular in the first place.
We’d have made more, but I kept forgetting to write songs down.
Even the Beatles lived their lives as a soap opera.
House music is about love, and lots of hip hop is about hate and intolerance, so in that respect, it’s not good at all.
You can get too bogged down in technology and you can sort of forget what it is you were trying to do. And with the Pet Shop Boys it’s primarily about the songs, it’s about song writing.
I’m beginning to think that you should only be allowed to serve two terms, before madness sets in.
Electroclash is good because it’s stayed underground.
We’d be nowhere without our looks.
Using music to promote hate seems to be the bastardisation of music to me.
One Direction. Proper pop band. There has to be a band that people want to scream at. I don’t think I’ve ever behaved like a pop star.
If I could, I’d be a recluse. I do want to be one. I’m trying really hard. But it’s a difficult thing to pull off in this job.
